Interesting account

I quite enjoyed this listen but I found it to be more like a documentary than a story. It was an interesting account of the ladies stories of their time as shopgirls at Hayworth's. As a big fan of the TV series Mr. Selfridge I'd hoped it would be a fast paced story like that but it's a much tamer version. I also found there was a lot of repetition which was irritating in an audio book because I kept thinking I'd accidentally skipped back to a previous chapter. Other than that I did think it was nice to hear snippets of these women's lives.
