This book has you hooked from the beginning. the narrator is wonderful and has a great voice.
The narrator is wonderful! I loved all of the different stories.
Great, engaging stories of people living through the later time periods of the workhouses in the UK in the first half of the book. Loved the second half of the book and the wonderful story of Joe. Loved Jennifer’s writing and the narrator’s reading!
What a fantastic book! I loved it and could not stop listening.
This was boring or tedious, once you start you can't stop. The story can be incredibly sad at times so some readers may dislike it. The narrator WAS FABULOUS. If I could give a higher rating I would!
Highly recommend listening! I learned alot about life in England for poor people in the 19th and 20th centuries, and was completely engaged in the various stories and characters. The writing made me care so much about the people in the book. Excellent narrator, writing, and story lines.
This was a really great book and the narrator did a great job keeping me engaged. Now I want to check out the Netflix series.
Many compelling stories kept me interested in what happens the the people in each scenario. I’m usually a fiction reader but this book had me at the heart strings. The narrator does the book much justice as well!
I enjoyed this story VERY MUCH. (If you liked THE MIDWIFES on the PBS station, you will enjoy this book).
I especially enjoyed Part 3 - The Old Soldier Joe.
Am giving this story a 5 star rating.
Enjoyed the book and liked the narrator very much as well. Very good match.
