Soon afterward, when a lunar eclipse inexplicably thrusts Laura back in time to Civil War Georgia, she finds herself fighting not just for her heart but for her very survival.

I bought this book as a two-pack. The first one spinning the moon was okay. Very much like Outlander, just a different era. But enjoyable to listen to. Good character development. the second book in the two-pack was absolutely painful. the storyline was drab and boring the characters were very annoying and the narration was bad. I really had to force myself to finish this, holding onto hope the whole time that the ending would make my time spent listening worth it. no such luck.
I like these, upgraded first books from the author. I liked the first book better than the 2nd. The 2nd had some strengths that got lost in the prolonged drama of the story. The heroine in the 2nd was slow emotionally and intellectually to the point of annoyance. She created much of the drama in her life because of it. Sad too as story had great potential. These together are worth a credit.
I could have done without the animal slaughter, this made me sick
Susan Bennett is one of my favorite narrators
This is actually two books in one, and I did enjoy them both. The first involves a story with a time travel twist that I liked. The second was a little darker and did keep me wanting to find out what happened, but sometimes feeling a little anxious. It was certainly worth the credit but not without a few minor lines repeated a little to often (a pet peeve of mine).
Loved the story. Not usually a romance fan, I enjoyed this book because of the mystery entwined throughout the book. Was so glad to find out the bad guy was not who the heroine led you to believe it was. You need to read the book for yourself to find out who was the "bad guy."
Historical fiction and thrillers are my passion. Started out with James Patterson and was hooked with his historical novel about King Tut.
If these were her first novels...wow. We have a lot to look forward to.
Less intense version of Gone with the Wind
It's obvious Karen White was a fan of Gone with the Wind as many of the scenes and some of the dialog were the same. But the story was entertaining.
I really enjoyed this book. After a hour on, I start to be hesitant. I'm so glad I continued! The Author was so clever in for seeing where this story was going. I loved every character. Easy to follow. Different kind of story line for me, but I really like the way Karen White pulls a story together, and she did another greT job with this book.
The first book was good but half way through the second book, I was cringing because every other word had a "flowery" adjective - I believe this was one of author's first books because I have enjoyed several of her new releases.
