    Margo Sullivan had everything a young woman could ask for. But while growing up along the rocky cliffs of Monterey, she couldn't help but dream of bigger things. The daughter of the Templeton's stern Irish housekeeper, Margo had been treated like a member of the family. Deep down, she knew that money could not buy the one thing she craved most - her mother's acceptance. Maybe things would be different if she could be sweet like Laura - or had Kate's shrewd head for business.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sandra Burr?

    I don't mind her voice but some of her female characters sound either too you or too old. Margo's voice sounds like Margo's character but Laura sounds like a 50 year old woman while Kate sounds like she's 12. I don't think I could listen to the two other books in this trilogy. I would rather read them.

    When Darcy joins his friend, Bingley, on a trip to Meryton, the last thing on his mind is finding a wife. Meeting Elizabeth Bennet changes all that, but a rival for his affections appears from a most unlikely quarter. He must overcome his naturally reticent disposition if he is to have a chance of winning her favor. Elizabeth's thoughts turn to love and marriage after her sister, Mary's, engagement. In a few short weeks she goes from knowing no eligible young men, to being courted by two.

    How could the performance have been better?

    I couldn't stand the narrator's performance at all. Her interpretation of male voices put in mind old crochety men. It's very off putting. I enjoyed the previous two volumes and I'm upset that the conclusion I was so excited to get was spoiled by the performance.
