The narrator did an incredible job of creating tone and mood through her use of varied voices.
I like that the story challenged my normal framework for reality. Not many books have challenged my patterns of thought in such a demanding way.
The scene where the main character first leaves the hospital and goes into the grocery store; the theft of the turkey and the comments of the child in line are telling.
The main character.
Someone who is interested more in historical details than plot structure. I loved his other books.
I just couldn't relate to many of the characters.
I didn't read the print version.
I would recommend the book to a woman who understands sacrifice. I don't think that anyone who has not sacrificed for their family will relate well to the characters.
She overdoes some of the accents.
The crazy/vessel of god sister.
Hearing more of Joan's voice. Slowing down and developing the details. Focusing more on Joan's life and less on the well know events that I learned in high school.
It was a dramatization so there was no one narrator, but there should have been more of a play format. The music was also too loud compartive to the voices.
Disappointment. I love Jean of Arc and her legacy. This story DID NOT do Jean justice.
You get lost in the characters' lives and each character's reactions and complexities are believable. You become part of their lives seamlessly.
She is spot on with the voices. She moves from one character to the next making them distinct voices without distracting the reader.
Listen to it. Then listen to the rest of the series. You will cry at the end.
I would listen to the Rose Garden again because it is a bit complex. I would like to hear any details that I may have missed.
I would compare the Rose Garden to Diana Gabaldon's, Voyager, simply based on setting and time travel. The character and plot action is very different.
I like everytime that Fergel and Eva interact. They are great together in the book.
You will not be disappointed with this book if you are a fan of historical romance. It is well written and not trite in any way.
Comforting, intriguing, relative
Graham is my favorite character, because he is the most complex.
This books is a tremendous read. You will get lost in modern day Scotland and historic Scotland.
