Author and narrator Jacqueline Winspear makes listeners feel as if they are sitting across from her as she recounts her family's struggles during the World Wars in England. Her voice is expressive, clear, and emotionally appropriate, keeping listeners completely engaged as she moves back and forth in time and place. As we have seen in her Maisie Dobbs series, Winspear's talent as a writer shines in her attention to detail and expert depictions of the emotional impact of war. Winspear is equally talented in the actual telling of the stories, giving listeners a glimpse of the lives of her grandparents, parents, and neighbors, as well as the challenges she confronted as a child. Listeners will even be treated to hearing about the moment she decided to be a writer. An illuminating and entertaining listen. E.Q.
