    Story
    (239)

    Wilfred, knight of Ivanhoe, the son of Cedric the Saxon, is in love with his father's ward, Rowena. Cedric, however, wishes her to marry Athelstane, a descendant of the royal Saxon line, whom Cedric hopes will restore the Saxon succession. With a colorful cast of chivalric knights and fair ladies, this action-filled novel comes complete with feats of derring-do, the pageantry of a tournament, and a great flame-engulfed castle - all of which makes it the most enthralling of Scott's creations.

    Bill Dewey/Reclaiming Quarterly says: "Great Adventure, Good Rendition"
    "A book you should have read in college"

    Story
    Would you listen to No Ordinary Time again? Why?

    I love listening to Edward Herrmann and would listen to this again as it was so chock full of interesting tid bits


    What did you like best about this story?

    Goodwin treated FDR and Eleanor as two tragic overachievers that did not really spend the time to stay a couple. I was most interested in the description of the deep friendships of the Roosevelt's and their many house guests.


    Which character – as performed by Nelson Runger – was your favorite?

    Edward Herrman was this reader and I could see the part he did many years ago


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long but easy to pick up and put down without loosing a spot
