Enchanting what a fabstory
Yes. The nice characters were lovely and the horrible ones were horrible! I buy Milly Johnson's books as soon as the come out, they are always a treat. I love the narrators voice too.
Probably her other books except for It's Raining Men which was a bit more fantasy.
What can I say, everything, her inflections and the rythm of her accent brings the story to life. I ordered some of the back catalogue that I had previously read as I love her book. I'm so glad Ms Johnson chooses the same narrator every time.
I cried in parts. I never cry but I did.
When's the next one coming out??

One of Milly Johnson's best!
I doubt that it is better but it certainly passed several hours of somewhat tedious work around the house in a very pleasant way, impossible with the print version.
It is not dissimilar to other books by the author in that it is an ensemble story, featuring a group of characters with one thing in common, lives that are not particularly happy. The actual reasons are varied, but loneliness is the underlining problem in all the cases.
There was no outstanding character, the joy of the book was in that they were all interesting and so well portrayed by Colleen Prendergast.
Not particularly. It was pleasant to know that I had the story to return to when I needed a pick-up during the day.
No murders or gratuitous violence, no vast sums of money or Hollywood lifestyles, just a story about a group of ordinary, but pleasant people who find in each other the support and friendship that they were lacking and the ability to cope with the problems that life had chucked at them. The whole book gives one a nice warm feeling.
