Very enjoyable. Narration couldn't have been better and really brought the story and the character's to life.

Enjoyable story

If you could sum up Cherry Tree Lane in three words, what would they be?

Innocent, growing love

What did you like best about this story?

I'm from Swindon and know the places in the story. Bought back a lot of happy memories.

What didn’t you like about Nicolette McKenzie’s performance?

Not a Wiltshire accent. More like Norfolk/Suffolk. I was disappointed by the accent, I'm from Swindon and know the accent well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I have read this trilogy of books and thought I'd let someone else read it to me now.

Love historical romance

What made the experience of listening to Cherry Tree Lane the most enjoyable?

Set in Wiltshire in 1910, the story tells how Mattie and her sisters make up their minds to escape before it is too late. There is little time to plan, and not much money, but the younger girls have a boyfriend who is willing to help them vanish. Mattie, fighting a heavy cold, opts to go alone and, when her money runs out, sets off to walk to Bristol. Within hours, she is near death in a rainstorm, and though a small boy returning home from school finds her and brings his father, Mattie’s life hangs in the balance for many days.

What does Nicolette McKenzie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A beautiful voice with great expression

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was good
