This book is really good!! The narration...even better. Davina Porter is excellent. It does have its moments of brutality but that was suited to the times and it did make me cringe many times. This book is filled with history, love, and making hard decisions. I loved it...on to part two!
How many ways can you live a story? The characters, the back story, the twists, the turns and all woven together with descriptive language.
However, the narration volume went up and down haphazardly throughout the first half of the story which required constant adjustment of volume and interfered with the enjoyment of this novel.
Anyone will love this if you enjoy romance, mystery, history, the Scottish Highlands, and the idea of time travel!
I teach 4th grade and love to travel!
The narrator's pronunciation and accents add to the enjoyment of this book. Can't wait to go to Scotland! Maybe I'll try dancing amongst the stones?
Yes. Character development is fantastic. It is exciting and yet very positive. IT is about more than violence and sex. A complex story. The performance is perfect.
There can be no favorite character. They are all great
I actually didn't realize this was a romance novel, nor have I ever read one in the past. There was so much interest and story in the beginning that I wanted to finish the book, but the amount of graphic sex scenes left me rolling my eyes and fast forwarding hours of this book. So unnecessary for the plot and not at all something I'm interested in. I wish I could continue in the series, but I can't listen to another romp. Not worth it.
Fun historical Novel
Davina Porter's narration tone fluctuation and accents make this story intersting.
A brilliant performance of an outstanding novel. This was a long story, but I couldn't get enough.
First read this book years ago and got completely pulled in. Now with the new series on TV, I have rediscovered it. Love the flow of the story, love the mix of historical fact with a sprinkling of fiction and I am totally in love with the narrator, Davina Porter. She does an absolutely perfect job. If the story itself doesn't pull you, the narration will. Do yourself the favor and get this one. Well worth it.
