This is an author previously unknown to me. I bought this audiobook after consulting the AMAZON print reviews and because of the narrator Phyllida Nash (always a favourite!). Ms Nash's narration as always was excellent (re characterisation and pacing).
The story itself is not a Romance (a favourite of mine), it is perhaps best described as a historical family epic. It is a story of life and its losses and joys (not many of these), evils and deceits, and its limited redemptions.
The characters are wonderful and realistically flawed human beings.
This might sound gloomy but it is nevertheless a very moving and engaging story. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see how things would be resolved.
I would definitely read this author again but while in a thoughtful mood rather than when just seeking escapism.

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story. I could hardly believe that a book had been written about members of my ancestry which in part I had already known. Although this is not my direct line, they are none the less in my family tree.
