This was an awesome love story. Had some laugh out loud moments with the playful banter of characters. Julie Garwood has not let down yet so I am excited to read another one of her stories.
her ancient puts you there in that time in that land
great book will listen to it again
Why does it has to be Susan Duerden? Such an interesting story and than...to be butchered by screaching voices which supposed to be men and little girl-voices like mice supposed to be grown women. I couldn'd finish the audiobook, because it has gotten worse with every chapter. Please do not let her ruin another good audiobook.
Everything. This was the best book I've ever read or should I say listened to. It made me laugh out loud , cry, and just felt pure happiness and didn't want it to stop.
How pure and innocent and finding true love with no boundaries.
It was a little off and took a little time but she made all her characters come to life.
I couldn't stop. I can't rave enough about it.
I recommend this over all the others. Best sellers fifty shades and bared to you were good. But this book was great. Read it. You will love it.
I couldn't finish "The Secret", as badly as I wanted to...I just couldn't endure Susan Duerden's narration any longer.
I've listened to a number of books narrated by Ms. Duerden and enjoyed them. There were some her whispering became tiresome, but not to distraction, she normally portrays different characters very well. In "The Secret" she sounds like someone with a "smoker's voice" trying to scream in a variety of Scottish accents for the men, and the women sound like whispering children.
After trying to listen to "The Secret", I'm afraid to purchase books in my wish list narrated by her. Some of the characters portrayed in "The Secret" sounded like someone running their fingernails down a blackboard makes me feel. I know she has talent, and I hope at some point, I can make myself give her another chance.
I'm really disappointed, because from the amount of time I was able to listen to "The Secret", it sounded like a story I would have enjoyed.
Julie Garwood write some awesome books. You really can't go wrong. And this goes for The Secret too. It was hard to put down and I moved through it quickly! Susan Duerden, I mean the woman has a narration talent that you cannot deny.
Although, now i'm on the otherside of this book- Its hard to remember what it was all really about. English-Scottish tensions, a brooding laird, feminist movement vibes, midwifery, a secret parentage. Was it good: yes. Will I read it again: probably not. Take what you will, and lose yourself for a several hours- but its not KMM. Oh how I hope she adds more to her highlander novels *sigh.
The interplay between characters is fun and creates a world the reader wants to return to again and again.
During the birth scenes I was oft laughing so hard I had to replay parts to hear again what I missed. The relationship between Judith (Elizabeth) and Frances Catherine is a lovely form of friendship complete with loyalty, laughter and love.
Susan Duerden utilizes softness of voice in such a way that a whisper makes your heart stop for a second.
I laughed a lot! There was much to be amused with.
Truly enjoyed this book!
The main character of this book was very interestingly complex. Story well done. Read this series in order.
I've listened to so many audiobooks and this is the first time I've written a review! I really loved everything about this story! The characters were well defined and the love story was enchanting, funny and spicy! I know there have been a few reviews regarding Susan Duerden's narration, but I loved her voices, male and female! At times, I was laughing out loud at many of the voices of the clan elders! Soooooo funny! I hated getting out of my car! Love love love!!! Thank you Julie for creating a sexy, funny and sweet story for me to get lost in, in horrible traffic!!
Addicted to Audio Books.....
I have tried to listen to this book but I get a massive headache from the narrators attempt to do male voices. Ugh! It's the worst -- I can't listen to any of Susan Duerden's narration a they are so bad. So disappointing.
