For the genre it was quite good. Elizabeth Lowell is a good storyteller. It is a shame about the narrator.
The narration by Anne Flosnik wasn't too bad except her interpretations of male characters was absolutely deplorable - especially the main male character. It was embarrassing to listen to and I cringed everytime, especially during the love scenes. It is a shame because I quite liked her accent. I will think hard before listening to her again.
Good news that someone else is narrating the next book in the series. Hopefully it will be an improvement.
Yes. I found the characters interesting and I enjoyed the story very much.
I love how the story ended. It left me wanting additional chapters or a sequel.
She used some voices I would have imagined the characters to have.
Time and again the action of unspoken love.
This narrator makes dialog of young women sound like old men, young men sound like over dramatic thespians and the bad guys rasp and hiss like Gollum! Over-acted! I guess this one is just above this narrator's skill set. I wanted to give up after the first 2 hours!'
Probably not another book by written by Elizabeth Lowell, possibly another narrated by Anne Flosnik.
I highly doubt it
I would not recommend this book to anyone. The narrator has totally ruined the experience for me because of the most boring narration and phony voices. I have had to stop repeatedly to brace myself to just listen to the STORY, not the narrator. I am appalled she was not stopped and told to begin this book again.
The Woman in White
Her horrible attempt at making a man sound "evil." She had three levels of inflection throughout the entire story, most of them a hoarse whisper. The levels never varied. I can talk about the mail being delivered with more enthusiasm, inflection, or variation in my speech.
Yes. It inspired me to write my first review. Sad that it had to be because the narration was so poor. The story was not much better.
I will be most cautious to make sure I do not get a book narrated by her again.
Loved the story well written keeps you interested in the characters you want to root for the main characters. The narration was somewhat disappointing but would still highly recommend the book
Almost through with this listen and feel like my throat is sore from listening to this reader rasp her way through this story. I like Elizabeth Lowell tremendously, but I will not ever listen to anything of hers or anyone's read by this person again. It is full on painful and simply ruined the recording for me.

Everything, the story, the characters, era in which it was set .
This is just an amazing story..
I can't think of one
I love Anne Flosnik as a narrator
I love books and some stories should stay as books. Movies just can’t portray the thoughts and character introspection
This worth the read.
Researcher, editor, writer, francophone, anglophile. Started listening to audiobooks to conciliate my love of knitting and novels.
I'm ambivalent of how I feel about this story. The story was good, I won't deny it. But my eyes were rolling A LOT while I was listening to the story.
Too many similes for my taste. The falcon metaphor was pushed a bit too far and became annoying after a while. And the way the author wrote about the woman's "precious jewel that needed polishing between the gentle folds of her... bla bla" (I'm obviously paraphrasing here but you get my meaning), was just eye rolling and preposterous!
I honestly laughed out loud a few times (when it wasn't supposed to be funny). It wasn't like there was any witty banter between the main protagonists in the story like Johanna Lindsey writes for her characters. But I digress.
Not my favourite. There are better ones out there, for sure.
I love the narrator her ability to use her voice to bring life and heat to the charactors was wonderfl. Good story a bit predictable but endearing.
