I have actually found this story one of the hardest to get into but have found it intriguing on how the relationship between widow and late husband's brother actually blossoms through the book.
I have listened to several of her books and loved them, but I was so disappointed in this book. The storyline was so plodding and uninteresting; I tried and tried but eventually gave up and didn't finish, although I was over 2/3 done. I would not recommend this particular story.
This is a brilliantly written story. I have given this a three star on the preform ace because there was a repeat of the reading twice. This did not take away from the story, but that should have edited out.
I love Kathryn Le Veque, no other way to put it. I also love how she takes time to find her narrators. My favorite KLV novel(s) Crusader/Kingdom Come and I think that is because of Brian J Gill. I first heard him narrate those novels and was anxious to listen to this one. He had me in tears within the first chapter and laughing at the end. I loved his accents for the characters and I look forward to listening to him again. Great addition to the de Wolfe Pack Kathryn and great job in bringing this novel to life, Brian.
Love romance novels, especially historical, mainly in the Medieval period. English Knights, Highlanders, and love me some Irish stories.
This was such a well written story by Kathryn Le Veque and narrating performance by Brian J. Gill. I can not say that one was better than the other. The Lion of the North is one of the best out there.
Both characters of Atticus de Wolfe and Isabeau de Shera are equally evolving throughout the story. They both had to go through vast changes during this story. Isabeau looses her husband she was fond of, which in turn was Atticus' twin brother that he loved dearly.
Brian J. Gill is one of the best narrators I've listened to. He has a vast range with his voice and I have not been disappointed in his performances.
I think by just being a woman, I related to Isabeau de Shera de Wolfe emotions the most but my husband is an identical twin, so I related to the closeness of twins also.
I highly recommend this book and audible.
I have purchased about half of all Le Veque's novels available on audible. Some I like, some I don't, but this one was amazing! I loved the narrators performance, and the story itself really moved me. At times I cried, laughed, was angry, and experienced real excitement. Everything about this novel and the performance brought great pleasure to me. The narrator's voice for Atticus was extremely hot. I replayed a few sentences just to hear his voice again.
I highly recommend it to all, but especial LeVeque fans. I couldn't stop once I started. That is unusual for me.
