Three knights in the time of the plague trying to reach Sir Edward's wife. What trials and tribulations befall the Knights on their journey to save Elizabeth. The book had a little science fiction to it regarding those with the plague. Part of me liked the book, part of me didn't. Plus it should have a different ending.
I enjoy the Highland books and this book did not disappoint. I had a couple of small issues with the book, however. I felt the author did a little overkill on describing Ariana's marriage. My other issue is with the narrator, Angela Dawe. I try to avoid any book that has her as a narrator. When she is not speaking for one of the characters there just is no inflection in her voice. I have my favorites and she is not one of them.
I think I am addicted to the Scottish Highlander books. I have Scottish blood flowing through my veins. These Highlanders are always described as "the tallest man she had ever seen" and the most muscular. A little day dreaming never hurt anyone. I love Scottish history so when there is a good story line with history, villains, heroes, and damsels in distress I am happy. It was a nice book, not with oversexed content (a welcome change). I wasn't that impressed by the narrator but all in all a very nice entertaining book.
Oh how I love the tall muscular Highlander books with deep voices. Vonda Sinclair made him so likeable I wanted to slap sense into the damsel in distress a couple of times. I have yet to find a man that kind. There were ups and downs in the book that certainly kept my interest. I even listened to it twice, a few months apart.
There always seems to be an injured bird in her books. I couldn't quite understand if one of the characters was insane or just nuts. It was certainly quite an emotional roller coaster ride for the character which made the story a little dark. This was not my favorite Laura Kinsale book. As usual narrator Nicholas Boulton was excellent.
The Scottish Highlands, the Crusades, a villain. I enjoyed this book but it required some Kleenex.
This was not my favorite in the series. Book 1 and 2 were much better. I was not impressed by the narrating this time.
I loved everything about this book. I laughed, I cried. I am a sentimental fool when it comes to matters of the heart. I felt for both characters through the ups and owns, the battles of the times in Scotland. It was a difficult time to live and love. Great book.
For one thing I did not like the style in which the book was written. One reviewer called it "Delightful". I did not consider it delightful. It was somewhat tedious. I thought the author was trying to imitate Jane Austen in this novel. It didn't work for me.
I am always amazed by authors who do not choose a good narrator for their book. There is nothing worse than to read a review that makes the book sound very interesting only to have it ruined by a terrible narrator. Brad Wills is a very good narrator and he does not disappoint in Rowan's Lady. He has a wonderful narrating voice. Combined with a good book you can't go wrong. I enjoyed Rowan's Lady.
Two people trying to overcome a tragedy in their past. They meet up again with happy sad consequences. I liked the story line a lot.
