Publisher's Summary

This book is a cross genre historical fiction of the journey of a large 16th century sapphire. It contains several intertwined fictional genres from romance, eternal love, criminal intrigue, conspiracies and murder plots. It contains stories of treacherous pirates and romantic mariners coupled with a woman who never being to sea saves a ship from attack. It moves into the story of two women, one elite Saudi Special Security Force soldier and the other a civilian war planner defending a single tree in the northern region of Saudi Arabia from Iraqi invaders following ancient aquifers. Finally, the novel finishes up in Chicago and finally back to Riyadh.

The book is tasteful, sincere and contains numerous heart warming situations. It has a wide range of twists and surprising turnarounds, it is filled with humor, suspense and sentimental moments that bring the stories to life. The book makes for great listening to help unwind after a long day. Each chapter ends, although sometimes sad for the character, on a positive feel and message.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Journey of the Sapphire to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I read the printed version and liked it but the audio version was very enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elenora of course because she is the one who started the whole thing. I liked her.Jasmine was a strong character to me, she was brave to do what she did.The character of Sylvia was also very likeable, especially the second story of her.


    Have you listened to any of Christine M. Buoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't usually listen to female narrators, of all the audiobooks I have, only one other was a female presenter. Christine did a wonderful job, her voice is suitable for both genders and she did that quite well.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Journey of the Sapphire and why?

    Tough question. All the characters had some memorable traits that I liked in the book.Elenora seems to be strong and courageous even though she sounded bad by Consuelo's narrative. I liked Sylvia as well mainly after she met the Persians when she was made Captain. I liked Jasmine and Dan. The narration during Dan's channeling experience was very good!


    Any additional comments?

    I think the author wrote a splendid book and the narrator made it even better.
