Publisher's Summary

The secret life of a New York preacher's wife who learned the ways of a high-class courtesan during the years she lived in Shanghai. She's a multilingual courtesan with an intellect and charm on par with nobility. The expensive gifts she receives from her lovers are sold, and the money is used for a Robin Hood-like cause. Her life is a beautiful masquerade of love, pleasure, and conflicting emotions.

    "Honestly a great story!"

    Wonderfully narrated! Beautiful story! I gave it 4 stars because there are more books to this and they are not available. That is disappointing. None the less it was enjoyable.

    Story
    "Wow what a great story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Honest Courtesan to be better than the print version?

    Yes! I loved the voice over and found the audio version to be a better way to grasp the story. I loved the story and the speaker helped me to get into the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't have a favorite character as I liked them all equally the same. I found that the characters were interesting and had a lot of depth.


    Which character – as performed by Genie Boss – was your favorite?

    I loved them all! It would be too hard to choose. The author did a great job of developing them in a creative way.


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

    Yes! The book was 30 minutes long and I sat down and listened to it in one session. I was in tune with the story and didn't want to take a break from it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love historical fiction and this audio book really performed well. I loved the voice overs and the narrator did a great job with the story.
