    Story

    This was a very disappointing novel. The story could have held up, if the writers' craft was up to par, as it was, she data dumped huge chunks of the story when she could have unfolded it in real time and made it work. Halfway through, it started to feel like a short story that she padded out with a meandering maternal storyline that added nothing and completely bored me. Since I'm sure, like all formula romances, she and whatshisface would get together at the end, I was only there for the journey and the journey was BORING. The two main characters would need a serious kick in the pants before they could even be called two-dimensional and the dialogue was beyond tedious. Knowing that the author has written better novels makes me think that this is one of her earliest efforts that she pulled out of her sock drawer and fleshed out to meet a deadline. BORING. Take a pass.

    Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

    Story

    Diana Gabaldon is a master storyteller. She induldges in the smallest details in a way that is riviting and intriguing. Narrator Davina Porter is brilliant too. Her choices are spot on and I get so lost in the telling of these stories that I forget that all of these voices are coming out of one mouth.

    Brilliant!

  • The Grand Sophy

    Story
    (109)

    Resourceful, adventurous and utterly indefatigable, Sophy is hardly the mild-mannered girl that the Rivenhalls expect when they agree to take her in. Kind-hearted Aunt Lizzy is shocked; stern Cousin Charles and his humourless fiancée Eugenia are disapproving. With her inimitable mixture of exuberance and grace Sophy soon sets about endearing herself to her family, but finds herself increasingly drawn to her cousin. Can she really be falling in love with him, and he with her? And what of his betrothal to Eugenia?

    Carol says: "Can we get it unabridged?"
    "Whoever edited this down should be slapped!"

    Story

    This is a horrible travesty of Georgette Heyer! Her estate should never allow such hacks to decimate her work! The editor pulled out all the subtle nuances that added so much depth and texture and humor to this book. I will NEVER purchase an edited version again!
