The characters and story haunted me so I couldn't put this down. This is not just a romance, but Nora Roberts builds a great story, develops believable characters, and you have to know what is going to happen next. The reader was outstanding. It was unbelievable to me how well she could carry both male and female parts, and switch from one character's accent to another. She could read as a patient southern male, a proper and cautious young woman, as well as both young and old Russian men with consistency and accuracy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The story was interesting, but listening to so many voices read by one narrator grew confusing and a bit tiring. The reader seemed to overly dramatize some of the characters (the mother, esp.). Didn't hold my attention.
Charming story told from the perspective of a very human, old-fashioned English gentleman who is adapting to modern society. Excellent reader. Easy to listen to and hard to ignore as you get involved in these characters.
