Publisher's Summary

Having grown up on the mean streets of nineteenth-century London, Caroline St. James is used to fighting to survive.

So when her beloved mother - abandoned and ignored by her wealthy family - suddenly dies, the scrappy twenty-two-year-old devises a plan to right this terrible wrong. With nothing to lose, she sails to New York to find the man who turned a cold shoulder to her mother's suffering: Caroline's grandfather. To settle the family score, Caroline infiltrates her grandfather's privileged world, hoping to sabotage his business from the inside. But as she sets her plot in motion, she meets Jackson Montgomery, a virtuous man who is struggling to recover from a family scandal of his own. As their friendship grows, and Caroline begins to piece together the motives that led her family to turn its back, she is forced to make a decision: Should she risk everything in the name of justice? Or can she look toward the future and let love and forgiveness guide her instead?

    I am supremely disappointed with this book. It kept turning off during the reading and I had to continually keep turning it back on. Very annoying.

    Story
    "Didn't realize this was religious fiction"
    What disappointed you about Journey's End?

    I thought that the book started out strong and I was really enjoying it. However, the last third of the book threw me when it kept discussing G-d and the bible. The plot weakened and turned to preaching.


    Has Journey's End turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely. I will check more closely before I purchase a book.

    "Overall I enjoyed this book"

    Overall I enjoyed this story. The story line was great. I was sometimes annoyed at the overuse of adjectives. A bit of an overkill. And the narrator did a good job. The male voices sometime made them sound a bit ignorant. But even so I did enjoy the story line very much.

    I was completely and pleasantly surprised by this listen! Loved it! Just may be a new favorite author. Excellently written with clear character development. A great combination of adventure, suspense, romance and a beautiful journey of forgiveness. The narrator was perfection! Really brilliant. Highly recommend!

    "Appealing Romance Story"

    Excellent performance by the narrator. The story has clever dialog and good pacing. At times it is repetitive and inner dialog becomes unnecessary and or redundant, but overall it is a good choice if you're in the mood for something light and sweet. I'm not sure how beleavable the tale is for the time period it is set in, but I found the story enjoyable.
