    I"m a audible addict. My eyes have gotten really bad so I really hadn't read much in the last 10 years until I discoverd books on CD and Audible. Now I'm a fiend. Other than audio books I enjoy my family, work and dabbling on the computer.

    Story
    "Romance, Romance, Romance....."

    Gosh I love Bertrice Small and her writing. I wish more of her books were available on audio.
    This is the first in the series of The Silk Merchants Daughters. The story has family trials and tribulations in abundance. A big mistake which works out in a huge way. I don't want to spoil the story. It's an intriguing one with a Turkish twist. I have to tell you this story turned out nothing like I had envisioned... it was better though..lol
    I am looking forward to the stories for the other daughters... it will be interesting to see what happens with the sons in these books.

    Story
    "Excellent Book!"
    What did you love best about Bianca?

    Bianca is an excellent strong woman that reminds me of Skye O'Malley. Her character is one that provokes admiration as she progresses through her life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bianca?

    Bianca's strength in dealing with her first husband's cruelty is one that is admirable. She was able to escape him by keeping her wits and not folding as a weaker woman would have done.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending. I won't spoil it.

    Story
    "is this author mormon?"
    What would have made Bianca better?

    The description should have clearly stated that this was not a traditional love story. Our heroine who was misused by her first husband ended up having to share her second husband with two wives.


    What was most disappointing about Bertrice Small’s story?

    I felt so bad for the second wife who wanted her husbands love and would never get it, instead she got to spend two nights out of every month in her husbands bed and had to learn to be content. I would be raving mad!! No wonder there can be such jealousy and even murder in those situations. Although in this story the three wives were apparently happy as clams by the end of the story.


    What does Jill Tanner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She had a great voice, clear without being annoying. She delivered the story at a good pace as well.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was completely discontented with this story. I would have been so much happier with a story supporting a monogamous relationship. I feel tricked. This is a 13 hour story I spent money on. I wanted a happy ending!


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly,they had to know marketing this book that it was different from traditional romance stories. Most women of mainstream society don't like the idea of sharing their husbands. I don't like the idea of multiple wives. I hope the creators of this book consider changing their description of this book, while they didn't lie in their description it definitely wasn't accurate; nobody expects a deviation from the norm to this degree.
