Wonderful read of a gentle, happy book

(5 stars)

As an American cousin, it was a pleasure to follow along with little Edith as she visits remarkable places. The author’s descriptions are simple enough to make for a relaxing listen while still teaching me things I didn’t know. I’ve been listening to Librivox for years and this reader, Cori Samuel, is one of my favorites.

Light storyline, almost a children’s travel guide to a London of yesteryear. Read by enchanting voice.

Lovely book
