Touching, Stunning, and Brilliant
His voice translated the feelings of the characters.
Yes, it was very hard to stop listening.
Sylvain Reynard wrote a beautiful love story and I am anxiously waiting for the third book!
Really enjoyed this audiobook. Although quite different than any book I have read/listened to, I found it quite pleasantly unique. The themes of love, tolerance, and acceptance are threaded through the story and begs the question "What makes a family?"~in the end religious, ethnic, and cultural differences are not what is important. Great characters (Sylvia being my favorite) and wonderful narration.

WW2 story based in France during the German occupation. Gabrielle, a strong young woman, searching for her father who was taken by the Germans. Story started out a little slow but as it picked up, I was drawn in by the sacrifices and heroism of several of the characters in this horrible time in our history. All in all, I enjoyed listening very much as the narrator is just superb.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook but would have liked more of Stephanie's story and a little less of William Holden (even though he was apparently "the love of her life"). The many stories of famous stars, producers, and directors was fascinating to me and the wonderful relationship between Stephanie and her Mother was so very heartwarming. Ms. Power's narration was just perfect.

I enjoyed listening to this short fairy tale and loved the narration, especially Terri's French accent. Magical story about a Princess who runs away from an arranged marriage in France to find true love in the Napa Valley (with surprising plot twists). Beautiful ending. Audiobook given in exchange for an honest review.
Nelly Bly, a reporter, goes undercover as a "crazy" woman and is committed to a mental institution (where most, ultimately, spend the rest of their lives). It is a narrative of the treatment of the mentally ill (and some perfectly normal women) in the early 20th century. Frightening and disturbing~Nelly was a brave young woman.
The plot and characters were well done but the narration bothered me from the beginning and was so distracting. As I said in the headline~It could have been much better.
Though not for the faint of heart, I really enjoyed this story. Max and Ivy are likable characters (would love to see a sequel) and if this were a print book, I would call it a real page turner. The ending, in my opinion, was just perfect.
My favorite Audible purchase of 2013. Heartbreaking story, beautifully written, and superb narration. Could not stop listening.
A real page turner. Great story, wonderful characters, and a fantastic narrator. One of those works that you just want to keep listening to find out what happens next. The ending was just perfect! Anxious to read/listen to P. M. Richter's other books.
I am a huge Lisa Gardner fan but this story was fabulous--IMHO, her best so far. I literally could not stop listening, the twists and turns just kept coming, and the narration was perfect.
