As always, Simon Prebble's narration was great. He brings the characters to life and narrates with such emotion, it's always a pleasure. The story was good, but just seemed to be missing 'something'. Some parts were very suspenseful, such as the injury scenes and the unconventional 'cure'. Won't give anything away, but even being a nurse it made me squeamish. Don't let that keep you from the book though, actually very realistic for it's day. Just think some of the conflict resolution was lacking in the last half of the book. Lot's of build up to crises, but then kind of 'so-so' solutions. I did get this as a daily deal, for that price it was excellent. Would not want to use a credit on this. If you can get it on sale it is worth the listen. Historically very interesting if you like that period of English and Canadian history as I do.
