I enjoyed this book, but, not as well as other Gabaldon books. I do enjoy the Lord John character. However, I had trouble with the graphical male to male sex. If you are comfortable with that then I expect this would be a good listen. At 63 years old I still have trouble fully embracing the idea that homosexuality is OK.
As always the period facts and history are educational. Excellent job of intertwining several story lines. The limited inclusion of Jamie was fun.
I did think the story ended abruptly and left something more that should have been told. Perhaps I just did not want it to end?
I rate it lower than "Lord John and the Private Matter" (4 stars) and the "Outlander" series which are five stars plus.
If you are a big Gabaldon fan and are as frustrated as I am with the wait for new releases from her then I would definitely listen to it.
