Beautiful - A fine end to the story.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Ballymara Road to be better than the print version?


What about Emma Gregory’s performance did you like?

I love her ability to make all the characters come alive & be easily recognisable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - most certainly

Any additional comments?

The three books in this series have all been a real pleasure to listen to. The story lines weaving throughout all three are as real as her characters. I loved listening to them and no doubt will return to them again and again.
Starting with the middle one of the three I didn't realise until I finished it and looked for more by the author. I then listened to The Four Streets followed by Hide Her Name - for a second time. When The Ballymara Road was published I decided to listen to Hide Her name again before listening to the final episode. BRILLIANT !

There are three books in this series. This is the last one

Lovely three books but I would really like them to be marked as such. I did not notice and started with this one. After I bought the other two I had to relisten to this book, it made more sense the second time round after I had listened to the other two.

Well read and a very beautiful sad, sometimes funny story.
