"An engrossing, neatly plotted story....The authors' skills at evoking the flavor of the period shine through." (Romantic Times)
I very much enjoy period pieces and historical fiction, but Bernard Cornwall this is not. I learned a lot about how women did their hair in 1820 and how cute little 8 year old girls are, however. The reader almost prevented my finishing the story with her whiney male voices and absolutly awful British accent. Go to your local Christian bookstore and buy a copy of the book.
This was not gripping enough to hold my attention. This story was repetitive and unimaginative.
I enjoyed this book very much and the narrator as well. On to book two.
Better writing and better narration.
I suspected this was a sappy piece of work by the narration, but thought the historic content would compensate for the poor skill of the narrator. As I listened further it degenerated into total religious rubbish, so much so that I stopped listening altogether. I chose the book in haste before a long road trip, so it was a great disappointment. Fortunately, I had Faulkner's "Light in August" saved on my device. That is a book that I could listen to over and over again!
Nothing called "inspirational".
A narrator would make the heroine, Erica, sound like a the strongly independent character (as she was written) instead of a simpering, whiny mama's girl.
All of it.
A very regrettable choice.
The presentation of the story was fine; however, I am not sure what the readability level of this book would be. I believe that it would be very appropriate for middle school students. The story was very predictable and "pollyannaish".
This entire book should be removed from Audible for adults and put in the children's section.
