Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Camden’s inspirational fiction takes listeners on an unparalleled emotional journey.

In The Rose of Winslow Street, Libby Sawyer and her father return from summer vacation to find another family living in their home. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family all the way from Romania to stake a decades-old claim on their house, and he has no plans to leave. As a contentious legal battle drags on, Libby finds herself drawn to Michael and his mysterious past. But she’ll soon have to choose between her family and a man with decidedly unclear intentions.

    "Refreshing!"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually write reviews but this book was so beautiful I had to share. Not only was the story great the narration was wonderful Barbara Rosenblat is one of my fav narrators but she out did herself on this book she made the characters come alive for me. The story made me cry and Barbara made it real. I love romance novels and don't get me wrong I do like a little trashy sex scenes sometimes but this story just didn't need it. I loved it! Buy it! Worth your credit ? Yes!

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "1879 Liberty Meets Her Match"

    In Colden, Massachusetts a rag-tag family of Romanian squatters have moved into Professor Sawyer's home . . . brusque, oddly handsome and protective, yet totally out of line, taking over their house, Michael manages to charm Liberty (Libby), the professor's daughter . . . for a little while . . . with the court case looming to prove who actually owns the house, Libby and Michael begin to forge a friendship . . . as do Libby and Michael's sons, Luke and Andre . . . and Libby learns more about Michael's wounded sister, Mirela . . . the story is multi-layered, very interesting . . . with the inventions of Professor Sawyer, Libby's paintings, the story of the roses, and the wonderful weaving in of the making of perfume . . . but the very best . . . its the heart of a woman to see the best in others . . . to seek out good . . . which only comes from our Lord . . . not from a book, not from school, not from a university, but only from God . . . for He gives us beauty from ashes . . . The Rose of Winslow Street is one of the most satisfying, and GOOD books I've ever listened to . . . its not religious, but it is full of the kind of love that only God gives . . . BRAVO, Elizabeth Camden!

    "Good Thinking!"

    Story very interesting. Feel you are "in the time" , and the dialog and thinking reflect those years and those living them. Enough controversy to peak interest in final resolution and enough curiosity to wonder if the outcome would be satisfying. It is!

    "Slow starting but worth it!"

    Enjoyed the story but almost quit because of the slow start and being lost. Other reviews kept me going and I'm glad I did! Loved it!

    "You will enjoy this book"

    Great read. Some places in the book should have been expanded but the book was enjoyable. The main character (Libby) eventually got a backbone to stand up to her father with the help of Michael (the other main character). Romance, intrigue/mystery. Finished the book in a day.

    Story
    "Heartwarming with Great Narration"
    Where does The Rose of Winslow Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best books I've read. I felt as if I was there feeling all the characters were experiencing. Details were presented so that I could imagine the sights and sounds. Will be reading again!

    "Good story but didn't care for narrator's voice"

    I love Elizabeth Camden's writing and this story was good. I simply didn't care for the narrator's voice. Had listened to another book she narrated earlier this year. However, Elizabeth Camden is still among my favorite authors of historical fiction.

    Story
    "A Wonderful Story"
    Would you listen to The Rose of Winslow Street again? Why?

    a thousand times. You learn about perfume, nature, immigrants and life in America. And the characters are fascinating.


    What other book might you compare The Rose of Winslow Street to and why?

    Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden of course and any of Tamera Alexander's books.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    All her Romanian and American accents are very good. Michael and Libby are such interesting characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Amusing and tragic.


    Any additional comments?

    Could you have more of Elizabeth Camden's books in your audible selection?
