Not as absorbing as most
Yes; despite not loving this one and finding the previous listen (The Real Katie Lavender) not quite as fantastic as some; Erica James has written some of my favourite audios ever ( and there have been a lot) for me, this was a blip, not a blooper and I look forward to more.
I have listened to many, many Erica James audiobooks; I've enjoyed them all and absolutely loved several. This was her most disappointing to date. The switch between present day and the salad days of one Esme, now in her eighties, did not work for me.I'm usually so absorbed by a current day story that going back in time is often a slightly frustrating plot device. However it can work brilliantly and two parallel time-separated,yet interwoven stories can become equally thrilling. Sadly this was not the case here and I just couldn't hold my concentration when we moved away from the present. I appreciate without it the plot would have been thin and this is a subjective reaction. But this is not James' finest work and does not do her justice. It's nice enough and well-read - just a bit 'meh.'

Lovely story, questionable narration
