This audiobook was a huge disappointment. I found the narrator so affected and cloying that in truth my revulsion to her reading colored my view of the entire narrative. I kept plugging on hoping that there would be some redeeming moment of truth or some flash of interest, but it was like trying to swim in a pool full of mud. As best as I could make out, the book was every bit as bad as the narrator, full of hackneyed cliches and over-sentimental slop, with no imagination on the part of the author to enliven the slog.
I am a big fan of historical fiction, and my appetite for it is ravenous, so for me to be unable to finish this book says a lot about its quality. Don't waste your money.
