Publisher's Summary

England, 1161: Ellen, a blacksmith’s daughter, wants to become a swordsmith, but for a girl, this male profession is unimaginable. Forced to run away from home, she disguises herself as a boy and has the opportunity to accompany a famous swordsmith to Normandy, where the sons of the greatest barons are trained to be knights. Under the assumed identity of Alan, she learns the trade and becomes familiar with court life. When she falls in love with Guillaume, a young noble man, she can’t divulge her secret for fear it will endanger her dream of fame and recognition.

Across countries and time, Ellen struggles to achieve her dream and find her place, always in fear that Thibault, an evil knight who tracks her every move, waits around the corner. Full of tension, intrigue, and treachery, The Copper Sign is a passionate tour de force that will leave you breathlessly awaiting book two.

    Story
    "Glad I stuck with it!"
    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    good Norman French accent! I also like the way she expressed her passions and emotions, although perhaps it was a little overdone at times.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    it would depend if they overdo the sexual content. If they emphasize what the story emphasizes, yes


    Any additional comments?

    3.5 stars. Some inappropriate content--but this is not a trashy novel! I'm glad I stuck with it. Our heroine goes through many great struggles and some of them really are accurate portrayals of some of the things in the 11th century life. Some are not.But I learned a lot about the making of swords, scabbard's, hilts, etc. and this book certainly brings you in touch with struggles that a woman would go through and has lots of diabolical intrigue. It was refreshing, though, that the book was not overly dark but had places of good friendship and contentment.Our heroine is not an island unto herself but is someone who draws people of integrity together. and I really like the way she learns what kind of man she wants to be with. There is forgiveness and redemption for many characters. There are also some fairly good action sequences.I listened to the book with someone that could do a fairly good Norman accent which helped.

    "Lady Gray"

    Great story and delivery. Very long book but it held my attention. I hated to put it down.

    "Unsure about the story"

    Can't be sure about the story because I was unable to get very far into it , it certainly had every ingredient to make a good tale , BUT , I just could not do with the voice and the style of the narrater , it's a pity that we are unable now to hear a short sample of the books we are purchasing , these are after all talking books and as such rely very much on not only the story but how it is spoken .

    This for me is spoken in such a condescending voice and at a pace and rhythm that made it impossible for me to get no more than an hour into it , thereby making it a complete waste of money .

    Authors need to think very carefully about who they have to speak the words they write because it may well be that their work is judged unfairly .

    I think Audible owe it to it's customers to introduce a way to allow us to sample the sound of all the books we are thinking of purchasing .
