    In the heyday of the British Raj, Anahita becomes Princess Indira’s official companion, and accompanies her to England just before the outbreak of the Great War. There, she meets the young Donald Astbury – reluctant heir to a magnificent, estate – and his scheming mother. Eighty years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet. Her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, takes her to the now-crumbling Astbury Hall…

    Leslie says: "Historical romance at It's BEST !!!!"
    "Until the bitter end..."

    Where does The Midnight Rose rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fair to middle... It was a good way to while the time cleaning my house, and I learned something about the era by listening to it, but I grew annoyed by some of the characters and plot twists.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Frustrated and eyeball rolling. Cop out on one of the loose ends being unresolved. But all the other loose ends tying so well together (especially in the epilogue) kind of ruined the book for me.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I'm sorry to say this but the American accent was awful and horribly distracting. She sounded like she'd studied old John Wayne movies to get her pronunciation for all the American characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.
