Tragic but fascinating

Beautifully written and so interesting to read about LGBT life in the early 20th century. The reader has a lovely calm voice and is very good at all the accents in the book.

A wonderful book with a rich story.

Loved this book. Expertly performed and exquisite in its descriptions. Uplifting and heart breaking in equal measures

Dickens-esc.

Well written and passionate. A classic.

Makes me want to read Willa Cather and Sarah Waters again.

Too long and too boring

Narrator was excellent. The book was way too long, way too many details that did not enhance the story at all. I would have stopped reading it except for the fact that it was my book club's choice. I definitely do not recommend it.
