That Lass o' Lowrie's

Gelesen von Phil Benson

(4,762 Sterne; 65 Bewertungen)

Frances Hodgson Burnett was born and grew up in Manchester, England, and emigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 16. For her first novels, written in Knoxville, Tennessee and published in New York, she drew upon her knowledge of life and speech of the Lancashire working classes. Set in a Lancashire mining town, That Lass o' Lowries is a gritty, and at times brutal, tale of romance across the classes, which stands in stark contrast to her later work. - Summary by Phil Benson (7 hr 19 min)

Gritty and gripping

(5 Sterne)

I love FHB and this is one of my favorites. It is much more gritty than her later novels, less society and more real daily hardships. The characters feel very real, and Each of the four main actors develop with depth and strength. The novel is also fantastically well read, and the contrasting voices of the characters bring the social setting into sharp relief and greatly enhance the audio version.

a wonderful story

(5 Sterne)

I listened to this beautifully read story with gripped interest! I t held my attention solidly through out. the reader has a lovely, easy to listen to voice that has the effect of being very calming. thank you so much for taking the time for making works like this accessible to my self.

(5 Sterne)

A really great story, and not just a good romance. There are so many character arcs interweaving, that the reader gets a really good look at the setting of the coal mining village and the spectrum of inhabitants. The reader did a wonderful job with the accents and with giving each character a distinct voice.

Excellent!
