With only "Written in my own heart's blood" to listen to, let me recommend this series to EVERYONE whi has a vestige of interest in time travel or history. Believe me, you won't regret it! Davina Porter? She stands alone. She made her narration into a work of art. Claire, Jamie, Breanna and Roger are living, breathing people to me, thanks to her brilliant reading.
The narrator gives a performance well above and beyond any I've ever heard. Davina Porta can change her voice so convincingly it almost unbelievable !
The story is delivered by a description so rich you feel like you are there! Diana always makes sure you are completely immersed in her world ,right down to the auditory details, that you can't help to let your world drop away and let yourself sink into her . A very present experience.
More details about Claire and Jamie and their extended family! I couldn't put it down so I have gone through my house with my headphones on! I could hardly wait to hear what would happen next! Thanks!!
Know the characters as my own family... Laugh, cry, and relate with everyone in the book... Could and should be required reading for any sociology beginning course!!! Wonderful book!!!!!!
Davina Porter did another excellent job narrating Diana's book despite the frequent point of view jumps. The jumps between the two times was easier to follow than the jumps between all the characters in J and C's time. Maybe it is easier to follow in the book than it was in audio. Frequently, after pausing the book or when I missed the POV switch I had to back the recording up to get on the right character. Still, this story continues to delight and progress in the series. My main complaint is the way the R and B's story arc was left uncompleted. I'm not surprised Diana chose to leave some drama to draw us back to the next book but it felt like the "plug was pulled" in the middle of their story, so I had to deduct a star for it. Thank goodness I don't have to wait years to move on to the next edition.
I'm a Teen Services librarian at a Public Library. I love fantasy, history, realistic fiction, memoirs, sci-fi, and YA fiction/fantasy.
I loved this book and it's one of my favorites in the series. Adventure and relationships abound with character winning the prize!

For each book of this series it I find they are action packed and filled with tons of twists and turns. I just love that this has a taste of history laced in the story!
The narrator is amazing! She brings all of the characters to life, gives them their own voices, each unique and perfectly memorable! And the book of course is as great as all of the authors others!
