The Headmistress of Rosemere: Whispers on the Moors | [Sarah E. Ladd]

The Headmistress of Rosemere: Whispers on the Moors

Patience Creighton has devoted her life to running her father's boarding school. But when the enigmatic master of the estate appears at her door, battered and unconscious, the young headmistress suddenly finds her livelihood - and her heart - in the hands of one dangerously handsome gentleman. At twenty-five, Patience Creighton is already a spinster. The busy headmistress of Rosemere always expected a dashing man to sweep her off her feet and take her away…but that man never came. And since her father's death, keeping the school running and her mother happy has been plenty to keep her occupied.

Publisher's Summary

Patience Creighton has devoted her life to running her father's boarding school. But when the enigmatic master of the estate appears at her door, battered and unconscious, the young headmistress suddenly finds her livelihood - and her heart - in the hands of one dangerously handsome gentleman. At twenty-five, Patience Creighton is already a spinster. The busy headmistress of Rosemere always expected a dashing man to sweep her off her feet and take her away…but that man never came. And since her father's death, keeping the school running and her mother happy has been plenty to keep her occupied.

William Sterling dallied his way into financial trouble and mortal danger. When he is assaulted by his creditors' henchmen on the road home from a tavern, he guides his horse to the doorstep of his tenant, the Rosemere School for Young Ladies. After being tended to by Patience, the wounded William rides off into the dawn - but makes a point to learn more about the lovely headmistress. As he spends more time at Rosemere, something delicate begins to develop between William and Patience. But that will not deter William's creditors. With little money to repay his debts, and less for the upkeep of his estate, it becomes clear that sacrificing Rosemere may be the only way to preserve his legacy. But it may also cost him his happiness.

    Story
    "Poor recording."
    Any additional comments?

    Although the story is nice, the recording isn't. Distracting to hear background noise - music, a car, etc. The reader didn't break between sections. It would take me a sentence or two before I realized she had shifted to the next section or character.

    "Loved Everything About It"

    I loved everything about this book: the storyline, the complicated relationships, the characters, their imperfections and their growth, the romance, the setting...and I also thoroughly enjoyed the narration of the audiobook.

    Story
    "Worst narrator ever!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator - what was she trying to do? Terrible accents, terrible inflection absolutely no feeling what so ever! A disaster!!!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Emotion! Common sense! Her male characters all sounded like either drunk or mentally deficient!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Story
    "Bronte and Austen Fans Will be Thrilled!"

    Audio narration: I purchased the CD audiobook version first. The narrator has a somewhat depressed sounding voice and speaks slowly. Too slowly. So I came over to Audible.com and downloaded this version and set the narration speed at 1.5 which worked out great on my Kindle. Much better narration than performed by the narrator for Sarah's first novel's. Still wish they could have gotten someone who didn't make the story sound like such a tragedy, because it wasn't. This was an inspirational fiction and a narrator with some hope in her voice would have been better.

    Story: This is like a cross between a Jane Austen and a Charlotte Bronte story and won't disappoint those fans! A great listen, lovely story, sweet and well developed cast of characters, lots of tension, and little Emma steals the story! This is only the second book Sarah has written and she's already grown so much as a writer. She delivers a wonderful HEA that will leave readers emotionally satisfied. Brava, Sarah!

    Story
    "Good sequel to Heiress of Winterwood"
    What did you like best about The Headmistress of Rosemere? What did you like least?

    Good sequel to the last, featuring a character I liked from it. Though I did not enjoy it as much as the last, a little slow and mushy in places.


    What aspect of Henrietta Meire’s performance might you have changed?

    British narrator, which was more fitting, but perhaps could have read with a little more enthusiasm.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Yes
