It was hard to stop listening to this engaging tale of five generations of the Montrachet family, who have been separated by jealousy and anger. Told by beautiful Eliza, Nell and her grandaughter Cassandra, it's the unveiling of the mystery of how four year old Nell ends up alone on a ship from England to Australia, there to be brought up by strangers. Nell begins a new life in Australia but leaves her grandaughter, Cassandra, to piece back together the fascinating story of Nell's childhood and where they came from. An enchanting story well told.
I enjoyed the intertwining of the two main characters. The high performing, successful, good looking businessman and the kind of quirky, uneducated working girl. It wasn't a match that would normally be made
Louise had a great personality with a lot of heart. She really put it all out there.
A contemporary romantic tragedy
My wife loves romance, pain and suffering and this book has it all. But they manage to carry it off with a heavy dose of humor and fun. I found it amusing all the way through. Definitely a book for chicks but I liked it anyway.
If you like fast paced suspense and plenty of tough guy action this is for you. John Carr is underground running from the Feds fighting his way out of trouble wherever he goes but with a big heart. He's just the kind of guy you'd like in your corner. This is an audio book that will keep you listening in your driveway.
I started listening expecting to be somewhat entertained. However, the narration quickly turned into a drone and I lost interest. I even tried fast forwarding to different parts, hoping to get caught up but I couldn't. Maybe someone might be interested in listening to this but not me.
