    "Unhappy with the narrator for once"

    I've read or listened to lots of Lucinda Riley's novels by now, and so far, I've loved them all. This novel is no exception. I really enjoy the way Lucinda manages to connect historical facts with the fate of a family, and then connects it with the present. She does this in an inimitable and very convincing way.
    True, so at times there are moments where it borders on kitsch, but as the story is so fascinating, I can forgive that.
    As with all Lucinda's novels, my impression is that a lot of research has gone into the story, so it is believable.
    She handled a difficult topic -- the Nazi occupation of France, the Vichy Régime, and the Résistance -- really well. The story has everything a good story needs: great characters, an interesting plot, twist and turns.
    This time around, I wasn't too impressed with Gerri Halligan's performance: although the whole story is written in English, the (mainly French) characters are speaking French most of the time, and just why they would do so with an accent is beyond me. At least the narrator didn't overdo the French accent, but still. Add to this, that she hasn't got the slightest idea about French pronunciation, and apparently didn't bother to find out, and the narration isn't as enjoyable as it could have been.

    Still, the great story makes up for the rather poor narration, so all in all it was enjoyable.
