The story was very formulaic and melodramatic. The narrator was more of a reader than a performer who became the character.
I was waiting a long time for something interesting to happen. It seemed to just drown on and on until almost the very end. Georgette Heyer is one of my favorite authors, so I was very disappointed.
Usually I enjoy Phyllida Nash's performance, but in this book she seemed to add to the tediousness.
I chose this book because my daughter recommended it and most of the reviews were good. But all the back and forth time travel didn't hold my attention and I didn't feel any connection to any of the characters. All that and it was just plain weird.I tried twice to plow through it, but gave up. Not worth my time or credits.
The ending was rather anti-climactic, but the story held my attention up to that point.
