Publisher's Summary

It's 1836, and 19-year-old Fanny Appleton, a privileged daughter of a wealthy, upper-class Boston industrialist, is touring Europe with her family. Like many girls of her day, she enjoys the fine clothes, food, and company of the elite social circles. But unlike her peers, Fanny is also drawn to education, literature, and more intellectual pursuits.

Published author and poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is also touring Europe but under much different circumstances. Recently widowed, he is gathering research for a new publication that he hopes will secure his professorship at Harvard College. Befriended by the Appleton family while visiting Switzerland, Henry is introduced to Fanny and sees in her a kindred spirit, a lover of language and literature and high ideals. He is in love. Fanny, however, is uncertain. He is from a much lower social class and is older than she is. How could such a relationship ever thrive? Could a book of Henry's poetry, personally delivered, persuade Fanny to believe in a love that lasts forever and forever?

    "Good"

    I love to read stories based on true characters and enjoyed knowing more about Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's courtship with his wife. It did get a bit tedious but then it took place over seven years. I always appreciate when an author explains fact and fiction in building a story at the end. This was a very enjoyable read.

    "Enjoyable"

    I got into the story right away! It was very well done! It did seem to drag a little bit, however, it did not ruin it at all for me. There were several times in the recording where there seemed to be issues with volume where you could barely understand what was being said. There is no way it was for a dramatic effect either. Overall a very pleasant listen!

    "Sweet Story."

    Loved the story in its finest. Enjoyed the narrator. Captured my interest right away and my interest was fed through to the end. Glad was able to learn about Henry and Fannie's love story.
