    "Great Civil War era book!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Spymistress the most enjoyable?

    I really like the narrator's voice. She put a lot of feeling in her voice while reading the book. I've now looked up other books she has narrated.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Spymistress?

    I think the most memorable was when the south was beginning to put women into the prisons and how the main characters had to try and work around what the south was doing.


    Which character – as performed by Christina Moore – was your favorite?

    I really liked the mother's character and then of course the daughter's .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it while on a trip and didn't stop the tape at all. I really enjoyed listening to the story.

    "Very Good Historical Fiction"
    Would you listen to The Spymistress again? Why?

    Yes - I would wait a while after I have read more Civil War facts and stats. I am sure that there are parts I would pick up the 2nd time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Spymistress?

    Probably Lizzy's last encounter with the Libby Prison commandant. However, there are many parts of this book that keep you listening waiting to see what is going to happen next and if she is going to get caught.


    What about Christina Moore’s performance did you like?

    She did a very good job of giving each character their own unique vocal features and transitioned between them well.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Spymistress and why?

    Lizzy, who is the focus of the entire book. She is a very intriguing and resourceful character.


    Any additional comments?

    As a Civil War re-enactor and having read a lot of CW literature, much of the historical portion blends in very well. I was able to relate very well as to what taking place at the time. The authors description of the emotions, events, tragedy and destruction that took place at this time in history of our great country is done very well.
