    In the dark days after the death of Richard the Lionhearted, lives and lands would fall into upheaval at the hands of a power-hungry British ruler and his violent minions. One victim of the scourge is innocent Gillian, who is a mere child when the cruel and ambitious Baron Alford slaughters her father and tears her family apart. Alford, determined to recover a jeweled box for the despotic King John, is furious when the precious treasure slips through his fingers - only to be lost for more than a decade.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, It was not time well spent I could barely listen to it because of the narrator's make over voices. The men sounded sick and like grumpy old men and the ladies sounded like little girls and what's the whispering all about.Poorly done..Miss Garwood should only use Rosalyn Landor or perhaps Anne Flosnik or other narrators of their caliber to read her wonderful books. Whoever is reading this review please compare two other books by JG "The Bride" and "Shadow Music" and you will see what I mean.


    What other book might you compare Ransom to and why?

    The only other book I listened to by Susan Duerden was The Lions Lady and that also was a good story but POORLY betrayed by the narrator. Two I highly recommend are:"The Bride" and "Shadow Music". Two of JG's best and extremely well read by Rosalyn Landor.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    NEVER, I listened to two read by her and both were horrible.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The story was great but the narrator did not do the characters justice.


    Any additional comments?

    Please Miss JG pay close attention to Whom you get to read your books..
