Yet another cracker !!!!
The storyline was exciting with strong characters but also the narrator Anne Dover made it a joy to listen to with all her different voices she brings it alive
Milly is my favourite, she has great strength in personality which reminds me of my many cockney aunties i have
This is yet another fantastic performance by Anne Dove to me she has got to be the best,listened to her many times and hope she reads any future books by Mary Gibson
Found the story very emotional in places, i laughed while washing up,cried while doing the ironing , and raged while hoovering
Cannot wait for the next book, i can see me getting seriously hooked to the Mary GIbson books and will probably listen to them over and over again
