What a beautiful story and the perfect voice to tell it. This book is full of beautiful descriptions that make you feel as if you're there. I wish it didn't end!
I enjoyed listening to The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley. Yes, you do have to believe that things you don't believe can happen, actually can happen, but isn't that what makes for good entertainment.
I really enjoyed listening to this story. The reader was ok but sometimes it seems like she forgot to speak in the character she was suppose to be. That made for a little confusion. The story was a bit predictable and hokey....but it was worth my monthly credit!
I think I have finally learned my lesson on Susanna Kearsley. This is my third and final book of hers. They are all very shallow and weak with the character development. The stories are bland and there love stories are trumped up. The narration was fine, not the greatest, but no complaints. I think Diana Gabaldon ruined me for any future authors!!
For me it started off a bit slow and I wondered when the time travel would begin but once it got going it was wonderful. I couldn't stop listening!
I really enjoyed the historical details and smuggling intrigue that fit the times. This surprised me as I have not traditionally been a history lover. Seems that Outlander, The Winter Sea, Kindred, and The Rose Garden are helping me to sa our historical accounts much more. credit goes to both the authors and the narrators of those books.
When Daniel bought the green dress for her, indicating that he saw her as separate and apart from his past commitment.
Daniel Butler, who knew himself and was upstanding and loving.
Both reactions happened a couple of times in the course of the listening. The book was touching and at times quite funny as well. My crying was precipitated by seeing some parallels to my own dearly departed loved one, and my struggle to come to terms with this.
I'll be enjoying this book a second time around, even though I do not usually re-read books. It was really quite lovely.
