Yes I would. I like this genre (Christian Romance) and the author did a great job of creating an historical setting for the romance to blossom.
The historical background presented made the story and the world portrayed in the book come alive. While I found it at times unsettling to be reminded of the American history of slavery, the main two characters rise above the common beliefs of the time and show how humanity can be cherished by all. The slowing building romance between Rachelle and Trace kept an old die hard romantic like me intrigued.
I have listened to many audiobooks and am amazed at how well Carmen Beaubeaux did with all the voices. She took me so deep into the story, I easily forgot that not only was I only listening to the book, (not 'seeing' in on the screen), but the full vocalizations completely made me forget it was only one person performing all the voices.
The book is not filled with crying moments, but there are a few scenes of brutality that made be emotionally vulnerable. One of the turning points in the book is when Rachelle discovers that her slave trading upbringing is actually against her beliefs and her conscience and a change takes place within her. The way Carmen Beaubeaux voiced this scene brought me to tears of gladness. Sorry, but I like a good cry.
I am going to keep my eye on this apparent new comer to audiobooks, Carmen Beaubeaux, since I enjoy listening to books where the narrator performs all the various voices in complete character, accents and genders.
