loved it

I first read this book 45 years ago and it is still fantastic , the narrator was excellent. If you have not read Catherine Cookson this is the one to try.

Loved it!

It's hard for me to find a book over 20 hours that I can't wait to listen to, but this book was great. It is all clean language which was a definite plus!
