a moment in time, vividly told with passion
I listened to it over a 24 hour period, every chance I could, I couldn't leave it alone, I will have to not listen for a while so I hopefully forget some of the story first, it was really vivid and very well read.
The woman gathering together to cook a huge stew so all the kids would eat that night when times were hard. Many moments spring to mind
I didn't have one favourite, the characters were really well drawn, I felt most for Nellie and Jerry her dad
something that I wasn't expecting, a moment of forgiveness, compassion and understanding for someone in terrible emotional pain, i cant say when without giving away a huge chunk of the story.
I loved this, I was dreading to reach the end, the characters were so real and I wanted the story to go on and on. A story I would recommend to anyone who loves this kind of near historical (within my lifetime) community tale of how things were

Could have been so much more
If there had been a strong story to weave all the little ones together
Just not engaging enough
