Lovely story

Great slice of life from WWII Britain. Vivid characters. Good people doing their best in awful circumstances. Great narration style.

Really enjoyable book!

What did you love best about Sarah Morris Remembers?

I love books written about WWII as well as a setting in England. I enjoyed the reader and her various characters--good job! This book recalls history and life for civilians in WWII, but also talks about the sacrifices many gave during this time. But most of all, it is simply a lovely romance.

Which character – as performed by Patience Tomlinson – was your favorite?

Charles Reed although I did think she did a great job with Sarah, too.

Good Story Not a good narratior

This is a good back story to the book "Sarah" Cottage. I liked the story but the narrator was annoying especially when she did the children's voices. I would not look for another book by this person. Because I Love DE Stevenson I put up with the inferior narration.

The more I hear, the more I love this author

This book caught me up and swept me along and I was disappointed when it ended. Full of delightful characters and interesting plot lines. Best of all, no sex, foul language or violence. Makes me want to go live in their world. Narrator did very well, but was inconsistent on one of the main characters. It was a slight distraction only. I could listen to Scottish and British accents all day and she did admirably well conveying the emotions of all the characters.

Wonderful book.

This is one of my favorite D E Stevenson books. The narrator does a good job on the text but terrible at voices. The children sound slightly stupid and adenoidnal. The adults aren't much better. Even with the narration problem, I really recommend the book.

Love D E Stevenson!

I am a huge fan of D E Stevenson. This is one of my favorite stories along with the sequel Sarah's Cottage. Patience Tomlinson did a good job especially of doing the Scottish accents. She made it come alive.
Sarah Morris shares memories of her life and family from when she was young through her teen years and meeting a special man before WWII began. Her memories take the reader through the war and to several tragedies and at last her marriage. Nothing earth shattering but just a beautiful cozy story that always pulls me in.I love her style.
