I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
Totally addicted to Audible.
I won't disagree that this is not Nora Roberts' best but I always enjoy characters that overcome their circumstances. Narrator was not my favorite but not detracting either.
Basically it's unbelievable. Roberts must have had a great massage and thought describing it was enough. Characters not interesting.
No, but narration was Ok . You can't do much with a boring book
happily ever afters
The story could easily have been told in 10 hours by a better narrator.
Far too much was said/done that didn't propel the story forward in a timely manner.
Wouldn't you know one of the few times I find a male narrator who can successfully pull off a female voice is a dud as a hero. Where are James Daniels, Jack Garrett, Steve West & Dennis Boutsikaris when you need them?
While several scenes differed in setting, their purpose ended in the same results - more of the same. Thereby the story didn't progress fast enough.
A good audio book has me glued to my audio device, absolutely can't miss a word. Meaning I've got to stop/start & some times back up because our home sweet home runs like Grand Central Station. But when I can leave the room for a snack or prepare for bed, including an arsenal of miracle promising potions, while the book plays on and on, return to discover I haven't missed a thing, then this isn't a good story.
I love Nora Roberts books but the use of a male for narration is off-putting. Although the main character is male, the author is a female and writes with a female voice and perspective. Luke Daniels makes the female characters sound whiney and weak. If you want to enjoy the book, you are better off reading it rather than listening to it.
One great read
Abra - she was so positive and full of life and energy
Not sure I have ever listened to any of his performances, but I will be looking for them now. He made the book flow and each person an individual entity that you could tell apart just by his voice. Wonderful performance on this book.
Overacted, distracting performance. Should have been a less affected actor... disappointed. Can't understand how this was so highly rated...
Too much! So distracting...
The story was good, performance was just awful.
Say something about yourself!
I probably would have enjoyed the abridged version much better
Yes I have older books/audible that I have re-listened to and probably will listen to again. May not buy any new books again, unless abridged
Luke Daniels is the only reason I continued to listen to this book, he is always reliable.
I would. This book was just OK, but some have been excellent.
More of a plot. It was somewhat boring and the woman's voice was irritating
I thought he did an excellent job for the man's voice, but terrible for the woman's voice. I think they should consider a male and female narrator the next time.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
This was in an Audible "Three books for two credits" deal this week-I'd been bit with a couple of other titles that I returned and I have a feeling this one is going back.
Nora Roberts writes similar stories-we all know that. I thought Luke Daniels narration would sufficiently save a unsubstantial plot but sadly not even that worked with this story arc.
I've come to the confusion that I'm never buying books from the "loser list" again.
Not worth the time or money, even for a real Nora Roberts fan
