Brilliant story

This story was sad funny and frustrating all at the same time. You could feel the mothers sadness at her lack of bonding with her baby when I
everyone else seemed to achieve it effortlessly. The twist in the tail was unexpected but welcome

Absolutely loved this book.

Where does A Mother's Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In it's genre, very close to the top.

What did you like best about this story?

I felt as though the author had either experienced this, or had done very good research indeed. I felt her pain. Couldn't stop listening to it.

Which character – as performed by Amanda Prowse – was your favourite?

Jess. No doubt. Polly was also very refreshing too.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both, but mostly made me think long and hard about the women who really do go through this. Yes, I shed tears, and as one point found it quite hard listening.

Any additional comments?

I heard the crack in the author/narrator's voice at a certain chapter point. I won't say, but she really gave the impression of pure emotion. Very though provoking. Made me realise that I had been fortunate indeed.
