Amazing!!

I love the way Claude interacts with the children, it shows her gentle kindness. The twists and turns in this story were fitting and not especially predictable. I especially love the twist about Madeline's mother. I adore how everyone in town grows and changes in the story. It goes to show that love really can conquer all. Excellent storytelling by the Narrator as well.

Great story

Loved the story, loved the characters, but every audio book is made out of another component - the narrator, and if that on is not great it is hard to listen. I stoped listening more than once because the narration was not very good.

Great Story

This is a wonderful love story set in the harsh realities of post WW2 France. The narrator does a fabulous job of bringing all the characters to life, each with a unique voice. It's a great read.

A Nice Story

A nice story in a past time reminding us that there have always been lesbian relationships and the hardships those relationships faced.
The story was good and the narration near perfect. The narration was so good it really wasn’t necessary to read ‘he said’ ‘she said’ after every characters statement. That was a bit annoying to me.

I definitely would recommend this story well worth a credit.

An incredible story!

What else would you expect from Emma Nichols.
It was a very good book when I read it, it turns out that it’s just as good listening to it as an audiobook!also, Jessica Jeffries did a wonderful job at Narrating. She was spot on. I felt every emotion and pictured the story in my mind with help of the narration. Take a listen, you won’t be disappointed. 5 ⭐️ across the board!”

The ending

I enjoyed this book thoroughly, I like time pieces like this one but I felt as though the book ended abruptly and there wasn’t much closure. Probably needed another half a chapter. That’s my only gripe.

I loved listening to this

I read the book but the audio version brought so much more depth to the characters and story. The narrator brought the characters to life and brought an even more vivid picture to my mind. I highly recommend giving this a listen.
