The entire series bears listening to from beginning to end... taking advantage of the vocal talents of Barbara Rosenblatt. The series develops relationships and a history that draws the listening in. This offering, while probably the longest, was my absolute favorite. The talents of Barbara Mertz, AKA Elizabeth Peters, knows no bounds. Thoroughly enjoyable.
My first and favorite is Children of The Storm.

What a boring reading! I did purchase this book while trying to look for the new names in Historical mystery. Since the reviews were very good, I was suffering by listening first 4 chapters waiting for the mystery to start. Finally I gave up. It is may be a good women reading or romance, but definitely not a mystery or suspense. I am very sorry that I used my credits for this book.
I liked the reader's voice for about 3 minutes and then found it tiresome. The story moves along as interestingly as a screeching sawblade moving towards the proverbial hero in the sawmill. I was interested to see if I could pull myself away in time to do something useful with my time. Sorry to disappoint your relatives and friend who reviewed it ahead of me.
I found this novel to be slow and boring. I listened through the first segment, and I could take no more. The reader continually swallows her saliva audibly, and I found that to be distracting. From the looks of the other reviews, I am in the minority. I class this as one of the worst books I have purchased from audible, and the only one I could not stand to finish.
