    "Wow! Awesome book!"
    Any additional comments?

    I could NOT "put this book down"! Really enjoyed the history mixed with a beautiful love story although I felt like it could use a bit more "romance" to it. Regardless, it was an awesome story that I thoroughly enjoyed. The narrator did an amazing job as well. NO easy job and she pulled it off beautifully.I would definitely listen to another of her stories. And Brenda Joyce didn't fail my expectations in the least.

    "Characters all came to life..."

    Loved, loved, LOVED how the reader brought the story, the setting and the characters to life. What could have been a lengthy history lesson turned into a riveting story with characters that were all distinct and real. Found myself wonderfully lost in the world of the Scottish Highlands and the excitement of Margaret and Alexander's relationship. Highly recommend! This was a terrific audio book thanks in large part to the narrator.

    "A true historical romance"

    When I like a book I can't put it down because I want to know how it ends. This book had so many turns I couldn't wait to see to see what was next. I loved the way it stayed so close to actual historical events, it even had me looking up Robert THE Bruce. Add to that a good narrator and I give this book 5 stars.

    Story
    "Far Exceeded My Expectations"


    "A Rose in the Storm" is not your run-of-the-mill Highland story. I don't think the Publisher's Summary did it justice. With mixed reviews I did not know what to expect, but it's one of the best books I've heard in awhile.

    Brenda Joyce did her Scottish History home work and stayed close to the historical facts for the time period. It was so well written it kept my attention from beginning to end. The story was believable and Rosalind Ashford does a good job of pulling you into the story, it's as if you're there. Both author and narrator depicted the battles, castle sieges and sexual scenes realistically, yet in good taste.

    I highly recommend it!

    "3.5 MORE OF A HISTORY LESSON THAN I WLD HAVE LIKED"

    This certainly didn't turn out to be the book I was expecting - now that's not to say it wasn't enjoyable but it was set at a very depressing time during Scotland's history as it told of the plight and hardships the Warriors had to crown Robert The Bruce the rightful King of Scotland.

    I, sadly, don't know how much of this listen was actual history and therefore was accurate or just BJ's imagination but it tells of an enduring love during 1306 and of the turmoil of the turbulent years in Scottish history when there were Clan wars, English invasion, betrayals, loyalty and hardship. Margaret (17) was first captured by Alexander and, on opposite sides, began as enemies but they could not overcome their mutual attraction and she eventually had to make the decision to forsake her family and beliefs for the love of her hero or support England and her Uncle.

    Very very heavy on the history, lighter on the romance and very very mild sex bits (tut tut - in my humble opinion this was such a waste of a handsome Highland hero). It did have some interesting characters and plenty of action but I would have liked a bit more sex and passion.

    Worth a credit? Two thoughts - the history (if true) was interesting but as a 'sweep em off their feet' romance novel then sadly it didn't quite live up to my expectations.
