Publisher's Summary

Margo, Kate, and Laura were brought up like sisters amidst the peerless grandeur of Templeton House. Kate's dreams were fueled by a horrible secret . . .

Her childhood had been a lie. Her father had been a thief. Her mind struggled to absorb these facts, to analyze, to accept. Kate Powell had been orphaned at an early age, when she had, essentially, watched her parents die. Her family had been taken away, but she had been given another. The distant kinship didn't matter to Thomas and Susan Templeton. They had taken her in, raised her as their own, given her a home and love.

Now, 20 years later, she has learned the truth from a colleague of her father. A man who did not realize that the Templetons had gone to great lengths to protect the child from knowledge that would hurt and shame her.

    "Good Series"

    Nice example of Nora's earlier work. I like the diversity of the characters and the storyline is humorous and believable. Worth the listen.

    "Great story"

    The narrator did the story great justice in her understanding of the characters roles and what the author wanted the reader to get from it truly wonderful

    "amazing"

    The narrator was much better in this book. Loved the whole story and little twist in it. Nora Roberts is an amazing author.

    Story
    "Corny"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    quite disappointing for a book by Nora Roberts, especially after reading `The Witness'. Boring story and such horribly affected voice


    Has Holding the Dream turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sandra Burr?

    Nobody can be as bad as Sandra Burr. The worst female narrator I've listened to from Audible. Reminds me of primary school concert performances


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "Romance and Mystery"

    Excellent narrator gave life to the different characters. The romance was complimented by the mystery. An enjoyable listen.

    "Story good, narrator...ok"

    I love Nora Roberts and would have enjoyed the story better if the narrator was different. I really don't like her voice and will not complete the series because of it.

    Read the book, skip the audio.
