Jackie loves her family. Sure, her teenage children can be stroppy. Her husband a little lazy. And providing round-the-clock care for her Alzheimer's-ridden mother is exhausting. All Jackie wants is for her children to have brighter futures than she did. So long as Martha, the eldest, gets into university and follows her dreams, all her sacrifice will be worth something...won't it?

Would you try another book written by Amanda Prowse or narrated by Amanda Prowse?

The narration by Amanda Prowse was excellent but I am unlikely to try another book by the same author - the story was too predictable and the characters too extreme, and not really believable.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The basic stroy was OK but there was no subtlety in the way it was written; the dialogue was clunky and the characters' actions and reactions were overplayed

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I thought Amanda Prowse did a good job

Was Perfect Daughter worth the listening time?

It was just about worth it, but I couldn't recommend it as anything other than a beach read.

What did you like most about Perfect Daughter?

Brilliant story about an ordinary family that I think everyone can relate to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved them all, little Jonty was hilarious! But Pete comes across as lovely. Jacks is fab and her friend Gina funny, can't choose one...

Which character – as performed by Amanda Prowse – was your favourite?

Jacks. She sounded warm and lovely. I took every step with her.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Every woman's story...

Any additional comments?

Thoroughly enjoyed this, can't recommend highly enough. You hear it said, but I really did laugh and cry. Prowse is a natural story teller. Brilliant, just brilliant.
