I have not read anything by Julie Garwood that has disappointed me. This one however is one of my favorite historical stories. Starting with the little girls and the pesky bee. She has a nack for transporting a reader right back to what ever time she is writing about. Also love her contemporary book's as well.
story never lags
Much like Scandal's Bride - brought together by outside forces the heroine and hero develop a happy and lasting bond after a series of adventures and mis-adventures. Both set in Scotland and England, mid millennium, they portray the society of their time and the eternal truths of human interaction. Both are books to be bead more than once.
The healing of the gravely wounded Angus.
The narrators in both add greatly to the telling, Character's voices are well delineated by tone and accents. Much more a dramatization than a reading. You are drawn in to the story you feel as well as hear.
I really enjoyed everything about it, the storyline, the characters which were sometimes difficult but quite human and the narrator is one of my favourite, her voices are always well done and easy to follow.
I loved the descriptions of the Scottish men, their physical size and their humor.
It flowed well, there was some nice romance but there was also a great story behind it and the time of setting was well presented.
Yes, they are always wonderful
When the King spoke with Jamie
I loved the dialog and humor in this book. I was sad when the story ended -the sign of a good book! The narrator did a great job with the accents, and the male and female voices in the story.
This is a wonderful romatic novel. The reader is easy to listen to and draws you in to each character. Many times i caught myself smiling in the car as I listened. It is easy to listen to in parts, but will make you want to hear it all at once!
Great story, great caracters, enjoyed Ms. Garwood's work once again! Great narration, love listening to this story, could not read it fast enough. Great production.
An intriguing look at Scottish and English relations. Wow! This was well done! The passion and love between Alec and Jamie was fun to listen to. Like a fly on the wall of their home.... :-)
This book was brain candy for me. I generally like a read that is a bit educational and with more historical fact mixed in. This was definitely enjoyable though, and it leaves you feeling good at the end.
Loved the stroy, loved the narration. I could have done without the sex scenes but I found that I could simply fast forward through them without reducing how much I enjoyed the story. It was a great mixtue of romance, drama, suspence and comedy! I definately recommend this story. Rosalyn Landor was so good ! I could have believed that there were several people reading as she went from one character to another! I am going to search for other books that she has narrated!
