    "Quiet powerful narration - O.K. Civil War story"
    Would you listen to Secrets and Sacrifices again? Why?

    No - not because it wasn't a well written story but it was rather depressing. So much bloodshed - so much detail on all the surgeries Daniel was performing to save the soldiers. The love story was a minor part of the story, but at least it does end happily.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets and Sacrifices?

    Charlie helping to free a family of slaves, hiding them in her family's wagon's boxes. Another is Charlie sneaking into the prison camp Daniel is being held in, and helping him break out of there. Definitely, a lot of great detail and the story follows the history of the different battles very well.


    What about Christine Padovan’s performance did you like?

    Her quiet narrating style for this particular story - it fit the mood of the story. Accents were O.K. Her voice made it enjoyable to listen to the story; it had so much heartache and sadness most of the time, that it was good that she kept her voice soothing.


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

    No, it was actually nice to take a break from listening and just listen to it in bits and pieces.

    "Awful narration!"
    What disappointed you about Secrets and Sacrifices?

    The narrator is the worst I have ever heard and I
    listen to many books!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like historical romance and think the love story is very good.


    What didn’t you like about Christine Padovan’s performance?

    She didn't change expressions! Did she even read the book before she recorded it? She did not have inflection at the right times in the right places. If the section was happy or sad it didn't matter. She sounded like a robot. Do the authors even listen to their books before they are released? It is a shame that a good story has been ruined.


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

    just the narration
