I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
I am a big fan of Victoria Laurie - I have read all her Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye and I am now starting on the Ghoul's series. Love the story line and the plots are great.
It seems that "he said" or "she said" are used way too often. Even when the person is asking a question, the sentence ends with said. It will be awhile before I re-listen to this series. Maybe Miss Laurie needs a thesaurus?
I really liked the story. A little involved however if you follow it closely - it does keep in guessing on how it will end.
I think the word "fiance'" may have been used too much. I know Abby must have been thrilled to be engaged but it seemed like towards the end she was telling everyone Dutch was her fiance'.
I cried, I laughed and I groaned but couldn't put it down and can't wait to listen to it again. Wasn't sure at first if I would like it but I have always enjoyed Danielle steels books in the past so I thought what the heck - give it a try. Blake seemed a little unreal at first but I'm sure there are men out there like him - Maxine was very real and you could feel her pain and her joy. Story has a predictable ending and even knowing that, I really liked it. (I always like happy endings.) Enjoy!
If you like wizardry and romance this will make for very interesting "reading". Have read is at least 6-7 times. The reader makes everyone become real and even after reading it so many times, I'm still enchanted with it. Set in the 1800s, where wizards are commonplace but not generally accepted, how the two main characters deal with the topic of magic. Would love to see more of Mary Jo Putney's books on this website.
