This was one of the poorest books ever listened to from Audible. If you are not selective with your reading material, then this would be a filler. I cannot believe the high marks this book supposedly earned.
I had to roll my eyes - sweet talking Julian worshipping Kate. Kate worshipping Julian. Enough already. Time travel made it interesting. It was my first book of Ms. Williams and probably the last.
Very enjoyable book, but the male voices were off-putting. Why can't there he male and female narrators?
The narrator was fine.
The author needs to learn to write better. Honestly. Way more description than is necessary and there's a lot of "he said" and then "I said" and "he said", etc. The story also starts in the past (the preface) without real indication of how she got there, and then each chapter switched from past to present. It just feels like the author couldn't decide what era she wanted the story set in, so she chose to incorporate both. I will admit that I have not finished the book, and I'm not entirely sure I want to. The only reason I started to read this is because it's the book that was selected for this month in my book club. I'm glad I used my credit instead of actually paying for this, but even then I'm not sure it was worth my precious credit. Essentially, it comes down to really bad writing and a boring plot. It's basically Fifty Shades of Grey without the kinky stuff. I really was disappointed in the lack of lead in with the romance. They went from instant attraction to the I'm-so-in-love-with-you-that-i-never-want-to-let-you-go moment. There was no build up to it, which takes all the fun out of reading a romance, in my opinion.
I don't know. I didn't have an issue with the narrator so much as I did with the book.

I have enjoyed this audiobook so much, there is time travelling, romance, and most of all adventure. Yes that is makes my curiousity peak along the story. Salute for the author and narrator, they're so awesome.
I bought this book after enjoying another Beatriz Williams book. I found this book engaging and enjoyable.
Wow! what an engrossing listen.
The time traveling from present to WW1 was the most confusing and most engrossing listen. I completely lost myself listening to this story. Im heartsick with longing for the story to be longer for Kate and Julian.
I bought this book because it was recommended as similar to Deborah Harkness' Discovery of Witches. WELL! It's so similar that it feels like a rip-off. Skip this and enjoy the remarkable stories of Harkness.
Cool story idea, but the characters just seemed too much like Matthew and Diana.
