The first part of the story was just too unbelievable for me. A Doctor of Psychology who can't see malicious manipulative sister for what she is. The story gets better but the narrator doesn't do justice to the female characters. I've heard too many good readers that allow you to know who's talking just by the changes in their voice. That's not the case here. The females run together and the male characters aren't much better. All in all, I like the way Nora Roberts develops her characters and though I wouldn't rate this a 5, I think it was worth the credit.
Above average for the series
The true coming together of a family
Was not pleasantly surprised by a new reader. After some adjustment I was able to move along with him. Was aware it was always a male voice. This was sometimes disheartening.
Whilst this was my least favourite of the four books , I still enjoyed it and the Sybill factor was what brought it all together.
I enjoyed this series a lot but I am disappointed with this last book. It seems that this book was short and very rushed compared to the last two. This could have very easily had several more chapters in between beginning and end. The performance was very good which I find very important in an audio book as some narrators are so bad I can't even finish the book. Overall a good read, but it could have been much better.
I didn't read the print version.
Seth and Ethan are my favorite characters. Seth has a lot to overcome and we see him coming out of his shell more in this book. Ethan was patient as ever, which is what I like in a man.
It seemed like the first part of this book was rushed. Philip and Sybill seemed to jump into a type of relationship that I didn't find realistic.
Yes to hear details. I may have missed AS IN ANY GOOD STORY
The sail boat for the youngest brother
He captured the essence of each person and situation
Building lives and a family
Yes, it takes you away to another place and gets you caught up in the story
Yes, this was done very well
yes, although I like to stretch it out while driving on a trip.
Story is good if shallow..but it would be entertaining if the original narrator did this book too. Awful voice takes away the enjoyment, really could not listen to the entire book.
No, but a well written book being read to me by a good narrator is just a special delight for me. Nora Roberts weaves the most entertaining stories and characters.
Born of Ice, because of the strong quiet personality of the main characters.I found the whole series to be extremely entertaining.
Families are made of caring, not blood.
May Nora Roberts continue to find the inspiration to write such interesting stories, I have now read many of them and hold her ability in high regard.
Sea Swept and Rising Tides, two other books of the series are just as good. They bring out the unique personalities of the brothers and their devotion to the couple who saved them from unspeakable abuse. I am just about to listen to the fourth book, Chesapeake Blue.
He is able to bring the character's individual personalities to life in a very believable fashion. They don't all run together.
This book, and the series, leaves you feeling comfortable that things worked out for the best for these young men who started out in the world with two strikes against them.
