The story is good if you like time traveling fantasy and romance. I enjoy this kind of stories. This one is good in the way that presents both sides of a coin. Meaning that you can experience our century through the wondrous eyes of someone from the past and then see Elizabethan Era through our modern eyes with the ambivalence that the portray of those times give us from the 21st. Century. The part I did not like of the story is the weeping maiden...The stereotype of the "DOORMAT WOMAN". Despite that, the story is enjoyable. WHAT IS AWFUL is the NARRATION!
Let me explain myself. As an audiobook fan I respect and appreciate narrators. But I found out that there is the RIGHT & WRONG narrator for each story. So, Mr. S. West does read nicely the descriptive parts of the story, and even the male voices are ok, BUT really, when he does the female voices it isn't pretty to say the least. I kept rolling my eyes and feeling kind of embarrassed, since the part sounded...I don't know, silly, stupid. I believe there are male narrator that can do female voices much better, and/or female narrators that can do male voices not badly. OR...what I like best: BOTH, FEMALE AND MALE NARRATOR.
Alas, a good story down because of a wrong choice of narrator.
I love the overall storyline. It was wonderful to be able to listen to one of my favorite books as I drove 6 hours each day last week.
I love the story that true love is found no matter what.
I enjoyed the narration except for the lead female character voice, it just didn't match the voice I created when I read the book not very feminine--guess that is expected since narrator is a guy. I still enjoyed it once I was able to get passed that issue.
I laughed and cried but I always do when I read the physical book.
This is a great book to be introduced to Jude Deveraux and the Taggert/Montgomery families.
I loved this book when I first read it years ago and I really wanted to love this production as well. I guess my tastes have changed because it was hard to finish this audiobook.
The female characters were spineless and the men were jerks. Part of it was the narrator, who has a wonderful voice but his female voices are irritating and very whiny. But I have to put most of the "fault" onto outdated stereotypes of helpless women and rakish men.
I love Elizabeth Peters, Diane Mott Davidson, Amanda Quick and Jude Deveroux. I Love Barbara Rosenblat. She has made me a Audio Reader. I also like Lisa Scottaline, and Linda Fairstein. I wish Barbara Rosenblat could read for everybody. She is wonderful.
I love this book. I read this years ago and was excited to find it on audible. The story as before was wonderful. The reader however does not do women very good. It took some time to get use to it. I still enjoyed the story but ms Deveraux needs to redo it with someone like Barbara Rosenblatt or Davina Porter.
I have listened to this book at least 3 times now. I love this time travel book. I probably enjoy listening because of Steve West. But his female voice still sounds like a male trying to be female. Again I wonder why this could not have been a dual narration. Then it would have been perfect.
Stayed up all night listening to this book. Sorry it is over feel like I have lost friends I really care about. Great read will listen to it again and again .......
Narrator: Steve West did a pretty good job.
Really Enjoyed it. Worth the credit!
One heck of a great book!
It is exactly a Knight in Shining Armor story. A very well done time traveling story.
At first I thought I was going to return it. The way Dougless (the heroine) was rambling on and letting Robert and his daughter abuse her I thought boy what kind of book is this. But I am really glad I stuck with it the story really takes off at the little church when Nicholas steps in.
I read this book several years ago, I adored it then and listening to the audiobook, I adore it even more! Steve West is a terrific narrator and brought the characters to life!! You will seeth, you will cry, and you will laugh out loud!
I highly recommend this book!! I have read only one book by Jude Deveraux, but this book from beginning to end was so enjoyable. The narrator, with his deep English accent, was most perfect. I have been an audible subscriber for years, but this book blew me away.
