Enjoyable, but rather far-fetched
I thought I'd read all Mary Welsey's novels, but seemed to have missed this one. Although her atmospheric scene setting and quirky characters are all there as you would expect, I found the storyline extremely far-fetched and often found myself thinking "No, surely not...!" It was extremely well read by Samuel West and the whole book was a pleasant distraction, but certainly not one of her better novels in my view.
Mr Copplestone senior, whose name I have forgotten...
Wonderful old fashioned story
I'd listen to the whole book again, I couldn't put it down!
I've just finished The Camomile Lawn by the same author, which I enjoyed immensely!
This was my first Samuel West story & I was not disappointed!
It made me laugh in places & sad in others.
A must read for anyone loving an old fashioned tale.
