I found it gripping, moving and inspiring
I wasn't sure about this story when I first started to listen to it, there seemed to be a lot of description at the beginning but the description really came into its own at the end, I couldn't put it down, wanted to know what happened to all the characters I had got to know through the book.
as the title suggests this is about Julie who helps, with the other members of the family, her father with the running of the newly acquired newspaper, it does have a bit of romance but its not the central part of the story.
Cassandra Campbell performed the story really well bringing the characters to life and making it an enjoyable read.
