What the Critics Say

“Alexander does a lovely job of representing the historical details … without letting the facts distract from a tenderly told love story.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "Save your credit"

    Don't get me wrong - the voice actor has a very pleasant voice. I just didn't enjoy listening to her read from the perspective of a 19-year-old young woman character and very little differentiation between any of the other characters. The book just seems wrong on so many levels. I don't think audible made it clear that it was an inspirational romance first off (my mistake) and there were situations that seem highly unlikely in mid-19th-century among the wealthy and affluent. Sutton spending many hours in the late day in Claire's bedroom keeping her awake after a head injury, for one. More than a big issue for me was the portrayal about the mental faculties of a 48-year-old man. They talk about him like he was 108. I found the book to be fussy and so slow, even though I was interested in the story and finding out how it ended. I still have 3 hours to go and I don't think I can stand it anymore. I buy books that I can read or listen to again and again and I won't be listening to this one again. This book is more than painful. Historical detail aside - Save your credit.

    More than an hour and a half to go and the author just portrayed a woman that can't be 50 with serious dementia. This seems to be a continuous theme throughout.

    After re-reading reviews from others, I feel certain that these people didn't actually read the book but skimmed through it.

    "A Little Of Everything"

    There was a little bit of everything to enjoy in this book: romance, mysteries, history, murder. I loved the story, although there was too much sensual writing for my taste. I didn't find it necessary to stir the romance, and thought it detracted from the value of the story. Still, it was worth it to me because the other parts of the storyline were very good. The narrator was talented in her voices. Although her cadence distracted me a bit. I would listen to it again, though. In fact, I might!

    There were plenty, but most of all the forgiveness.
