Publisher's Summary

Beatrice Harraden (1864-1936) was a British writer and suffragette.

A Bird on Its Journey is the story of a mysterious young Englishwoman hiking alone through Switzerland. When she arrives at a mountain hotel, she discovers that the piano is badly out of tune.

The young woman, although she is travelling with only a small knapsack, has brought with her a tuning hammer, and she proceeds to tune the piano. The rest of the snobbish English guests assume that the girl is indeed a piano tuner, and as a result they ignore her and consider her impertinent and unfeminine. But the girl has a secret, and she soon has her revenge on the party.

Distracting Narration

The story is wonderful, but the narration is so contrived that it is difficult to truly appreciate it. I wish I had listened to the sample before purchasing.

Ok but…

The story itself was pretty good but the narrator’s voice drags on and on and makes it extremely difficult to listen to.

Good writing, Bad Reading

The narrators voice drags at the end of almost every word in a way that is quite hard to bare.
