Publisher's Summary

In author Melanie Dickenson's new book, a young healer's apprentice named Rose believes she will never marry...until she meets Lord Hamlin, the future ruler of her village. Hamlin is everything she could ever want - kind, understanding, and a man of faith - but her low station and the fact he's already betrothed to a mysterious woman makes their romance impossible. As Lord Hamlin seeks to find the sorcerer who cursed his future bride, Rose's life spins toward confusion. A creative retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty tale.

    "Mixed Feelings"

    The time period, storyline and characters were appealing. However, the narrator was sooo one dimensional that it really ruined the book for me. Her inflections were ill-timed, emotions poorly emitted and I never knew when one person stopped speaking and the other began. The only voice variation portrayed was that of a more common English accent for 1 or 2 characters. Also, it was read entirely too fast, making it an anything but pleasurable read. I slowed it down a bit and found it more tolerable. I honestly feel that this could have been really great, had it been read by someone else (like Mary Sarah Agliotta). However, I can't discredit good story material. This has the potential for greatness, but in all honesty, I'm glad it's over. 😕

    "Boring "

    Struggled to listen to this story, ugh. I feel like I was ripped off. Going to take the rest of the series out of my wish list.

    "Had potential...with a different narrator"

    I read this book, and all the books in the series, and I loved them all; I have loved reading each and every one of Melanie Dickerson's books, in each series. However, I was very disappointed by the narrator. Her voice itself was okay in general, but she used almost no different voices or tones to differentiate between characters. Switching voices for each character is kind of the point of narration, in my opinion. Not to be mean or disrespectful to Jude Mason, but I wish they had maybe used someone like Cassandra Campbell or Julia Whelan, both of whom do an amazing job at giving each character a unique voice.

    "Poor narration, editing, Ok story"

    This is a nice little YA novel set in medieval times of unknown year. It is decently written and would make an Ok read in print but the audio is poor. It is as though we are being treated to a teenager who is reading this for class. Breath and mouth sounds abound. Some could have been edited out, but I guess as a production editor you would get real tired of trying after a while.

    "Great Book, Poor Performance"

    Really loved this storyline and was very engaged in the plot, but it was hard to get through with the reader.

    There wasn't much vocal inflection, nor was there much enthusiasm in the readers voice. She even mispronounced a few words. Very, very poor.

    "A faith filled story"

    Although some may consider that the Lords name seems to be used in vain on a few occasions, the two main characters are strong and faithful people. It is obvious that the writer did her research and the mix of history with a fairytale feel is quite nice.
