Sweet story but not particularly gripping. However, it is well written and interesting enough to make you want to finish it. The narrator is good but all the voices are rather shouty and manly which I found probably made me less into the book than had I read it. I felt Ella would have had a softer voice

I found this book unusual as it has some very surprising plot twists and turns, some of them are a bit disturbing too as you find yourself thinking 'could this really have happened?', especially if you've seen the film Philomena. I suppose it may be the mark of a good storyteller that she makes it all seem quite real and once you get absorbed by it, the storyline is unpredictable and that makes a nice change.
Although, I'm not sure about this narrator...I persevered with her and did begin to get used to her, by which point she didn't seem quite so strange! Worth it though for a good story.
