I thought I would give Anne Flosnick another chance...unfortunately, not any better. Will not purchase another audiobook with this narrator, period.
The story was OK - enjoyable romance from a bygone era, but the narrator absolutely ruined the experience. She was dreadful. Her voice was jarring and raspy. I will not listen to any other books that are narrated by her. Big thumbs down.
It was a good enough story but I should have listened to the reviews that said the narration has bad, because it was, her voice too dramatic for me. I was able to finish it but rolled my eyes at the narration and it took away from the love story in it. I like Julie Garwood style of writing, however I will just not listen to this narrator anymore.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
If you enjoy historical romance novels, you will love this book. I think it's fair to say that no one does it better than Julie Garwood. You will enjoy getting to know the characters she writes about. Like her other historical romance novels, this book not only features a strong-minded man, but a strong-minded woman. Garwood does a wonderful job of playing with the expectations of the time period she's writing about, and pushing at them just enough to make it neither totally unbelievable, nor completely unpalatable.
Some previous people have criticized the narrator, Anne Flosnik. However in this book I thought she did a good job and enjoyed the narration. I listened to Gentle Warrior and thought Anne Flosnick was to over dramatic with that narration. I am glad I gave this book a try as I found this thoroughly enjoyable. It's the type of audiobook you don't want to end.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I loved reading this book when I was younger. With that said the audio leaves some to be desired due to the narrator. But no matter what I will listen to what ever Linda has to write, even though I like her older stuff better than her newer FBI stuff.
Read the book. Madelyn's voice sounds much better in your head than this narrator. She draws one syllable and makes it three. How could they ruin it that way. Who chose this person it read it.
Yes, it had all the right stuff fair maidens, honorable heroes. dastardly villains, and many surprises.
The lady Madelaine, she had the innocence, and the courage of her convictions and she changed things in her life and that of others with ease while still keeping her innocence.
When Lady Madelaine set the lord free and warmed his frozen feet.
In search of the next great Cindarella story
The bones of the store had good intentions, however, she poured it on too much on some point going over the top to the unbelievable
I did finish it but I did fast forward over some parts
I thing you either love or hate Julie Garwood, this is my second book I tried of hers.... I am now hanging up my hat.
