What the Critics Say

"Although some readers may be hesitant to read a romance involving such a major physical disability, Anderson makes it not only plausible (with seemingly good research to back her story up) but romantic through and through." (Publishers Weekly)
"Anderson comes up with another winner by deftly blending sweetness and sensuality in a poignantly written story that proves true love can overcome any boundary." (Booklist)

    "Lovely"

    A lovely story if you just want to listen to LOVE. Nothing more and nothing less. I have enjoyed it after listening to a few very heavy books. This one was Pure Relaxation.
    The voice of the Narrator just belongs to story, a great combination.

    "Beautiful & Heartwarming Story!"

    Catherine Anderson has a special way of making you fall in love with her characters. Each story is written so well and with such amazing detail. I love the way she moves the story along, not spending too much time on the insignificant situations and really elaborating on all the special ones. The Kendrick/Coulter Series is one of my most favorites of all time!

    "SWEETNESS!!!!"

    Sweet and pure! This is the right book to listen after a hard day , so romantic and peaceful that you could listen all night long. The narrator only makes it more enjoyable, just the perfect voice for the storie. If you are looking for something to relax your mind it is the one.
    Ryan is just that kind of man that every woman wants for a husband, he moves earth and heaven to make Bethania's life wonderful, even having such a major physical disability.

    Story
    "the overly-clinical details were a major turn-off"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoy Catherine Anderson's stories, and will read others; but I stopped listening to this one a little over half-way through. Why? The 'love scenes' became so clinical, you'd think that her gynecologist was talking to her instead of her lover. If I wanted a textbook, I would have ordered one. The general story idea is excellent; but I honestly believe it could have been handled much better.


    What could Catherine Anderson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If the author had made the story less clinical, I would have at least finished it.

    "WOW"
    Would you listen to Phantom Waltz again? Why?

    YES This is such a sweet love story and how 2 people learn to live with adversity.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Phantom Waltz?

    When she was able to ride her horse again to feel somewhat normal.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Gibson???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Would have liked to had that much time in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read that had all the human emotions involved in a couple finding happiness.

    "A very nice romance"

    This story will all of you who love a very good lovestory with ordinary people enjoy to the fullest. I found the hero to be the most adorable man and his lady a shy, romantic girl who life so fare hadn't been very good to. I listened to the book all in one go, and thankfully it was a Saturday :-)

    "I Want A Cowboy Too!"

    This was the most romantic thing I've listened to in a while, I was so taken in with the whole story and really got involved with the lives of the two leads. I'm going to get the other one now!!!
