2nd book well worth the listen :0)

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl at the Farmhouse Gate to be better than the print version?

2nd book well worth the listen :0)

Was a little put off after a previous review, but glad I ignored it and purchased the 2nd book! Yes it did repeat the story's chacters,but only to remind you of the story so far.

Off to purchase the 3rd instalment now! Can't wait.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl at the Farmhouse Gate?

Lots of different parts, Hester and Rubens story, Mabel and verdys Saturday night rituals, to even georgie coming to her senses with Christopher and Mrs crackers cheeky banter.

What about Patience Tomlinson’s performance did you like?

I love the ease of listening to her stories and voices so relaxing!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I have laughed and punched the air in parts, but also shed a tear or two!

Any additional comments?
