From the very beginning this book reminded me of the film with Daniel Day Lewis and Madeline Stowe, one of my all time favorite films. At first that annoyed me a little but I went with it and just imagined the characters as those two actors and could then appreciate the story for itself. The writer is very good at creating a feeling for the place and times. Sort of educational which I enjoyed. Who steals the show though is Kate Reading. What a great reader! She must be an actress too, because she brings life to each of the characters and their uniqueness. Well done, Kate!
Seriously love this series! So far, as usual the first book is the best, they are all VERY credit worthy.
So easy to listen to and get lost in the story.
The descriptions of the scenes and the strength of the character's emotions are wonderful.
Her ability to do so many haracters including at least accents from three languages is great!
The story brings in characters from Diana Gabaldon's books. Is there a connection?
reviews for fun
I can't think of one thing I did not like about this book. For someone who is interested in historical novels I found this to be interesting from beginning to end. I hated it to end. This is one I will listen to again. It is very well done. Now I am on to the second book in the series.
I am HOOKED, this is an amazing author and an amazing story!! I just can't put these down.
I feel connected to the characters and feel like I know them personally. Have loved every bit of this book and the five that follow!
She gives the characters personalities like I've not experienced with any other reader.
Yes, but I don't want to give the story away.
I love this series and will be very sad when I finish the last book!
I have read this book twice already but wanted the experience of someone reading it to me. Great for a long trip.
I have to jump ahead to the last book to be totally disappointed. Until that time, I love the entire saga!
I think she is very talented. Great voices!
Why mess with perfection? Each character adds to the story.
Curiosity is my favorite character. I wish I had someone that honest in my life.
There is so much personality in the characters that comes through both in the the story and even more so through the audio.
I have not listened to any other of Kate Reading's performances except the sequel to this book but I would listen to any more!
A bit better than the average romance novel, mostly because of the more involved plot. Still, it's not half as clever nor as entertaining as Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.
wonderful, great ,loved it
elisabeth's struggle in the wilderness alone to get help for nathanal after she accidently shot him
she is one of the bet readers i have heard
i would not rename it
best ever i am listening to the rest of the series
I love epic historical fiction stories about family and strong women. I am in love with the characters in this book also. The narrator is unbelievable. She has a different voice for every character and she has a wonderful rich timbre. Love!
This reminds me of the Outlander series. Historical fiction, epic love, strong willed women in unconventional circumstances.
I'm sure the book is wonderful to read also, but Kate Readings voice is SO rich and expressive. I absolutly love her. I'll be looking for her name next time I start something new.
