An absolute Gem!
Amongst the best.
Her narration was excellent.
I rarely have strong emotional reactions to a book, but this story at various times made me feel sad, shocked and happy.
This story is original and very well written. In particular, the dialogue is beautifully composed (many, otherwise good books, fall down on the quality of the dialogue). The characters, many of whom are quite disturbed, are richly drawn. Themes of loss, grief, psychological control, domestic abuse, including child physical abuse and despair are explored here. However, the author writes with a light touch, such that despite these themes, the story meanders gently throughout and makes it an easy read/listen. I really didn't want to put this one down.
