  1. Jocelyne

    This is a short novella, interesting, fast-paced, and well written. The characters are intriguing. Emma Stansfield did a great job with the narration.

    Always the last to be picked.”
    A short story lacked with imagery.
    The primary school attended by Jemima Barlow years before has long since closed, but the building still runs art classes. Attending one, Jemima recalls her time there, teachers, her friend, fellow students and the parents, including her own.
    An absolutely delightful slice of personal, but universal, remembrance.
    Beautifully read by Emma Stanfield, whose performance adds to the experience.

    With thanks to the rights holder of The Lovely Miss Granizo, who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy, via Audiobooks Unleashed. So much lacked into so little time. Recommended
