Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Victoria Holt is universally popular for her breathtaking works of romance and fiction. Filled with strong-willed characters and set in exotic historical eras, each of her books spins an unforgettable tale. The Shadow of the Lynx follows beautiful young Nora Tamasin as she leaves her home in Victorian England. Recently orphaned, she sails toward the untamed lands of gold-rush Australia. Her journey will take her to the Lynx: the man her father designated as her guardian before he died. Rich, powerful, and commanding, the Lynx is a man who can safeguard her finances, but cannot control her heart. More than 56 million of Victoria Holt’s books have been sold worldwide. She also writes under the pen names of Jean Plaidy and Philippa Carr. Through the lyrical voice of narrator Virginia Leishman, The Shadow of the Lynx richly captures all the nuances of a family’s tempestuous passion and thirst for power.

    Story
    "Not my favorite VH novel but very well performed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - very well performed.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Victoria Holt? Why or why not?

    Definately a fan of Ms. Holt. This book doesn't quite follow her usual formula but enjoyable nonetheless.


    What about Virginia Leishman’s performance did you like?

    Perfect accent and reading speed - is still intelligible at faster speeds.

    Story
    "Wow. Am so glad Audible has finally placed her"

    Beginning was different than I envisioned. Since I can usually figure out a book within two to three chapters, this one had me good. It is her very METHOD OF STORY TELLING that intrigues me. She would have made Alfred Hitchcock a great wife. So grateful to find her here on Audible. As famous lines go, "Please Sir, I want some more!"

    "Definitely worth your money and attention"

    I have to admit that I wasn't sure who the culprit(s) were in this story or where it was going. It was a very good mystery and an interesting story. I enjoyed it.

    "Wonderful writer"
    What did you love best about The Shadow of the Lynx?

    I love Victoria Holt books and have read all that has been printed. I wished that more were on audio because I have truly enjoyed listening to them again. She is also know as Phillippa A Carr. I have not checked for any audio under this name as yet. I am unable to read comfortably so getting to listen has been a wonderful experience for me for I missed reading so very much. As far as what I loved best, I love all of her story lines equally.


    Any additional comments?

    Love historical romance books

    "intriguing"

    Loved it! Every character had substance. Very interesting storyline kept listener engaged and interested in what would happen next. Grew to love Australia as much as Nora.

    "Ho,Hum"

    While the story was ok, something was lost in the narration, unless, totally a Victoria Holt fan, forget this one
