    I love historical romances with an occasional foray into mystery/thrillers.

    Story
    "Story of Two Wounded Souls"

    The Soldier is a beautiful tale of two wounded souls - St. Just suffers from PTSD and a feeling of never quite belonging to his family after his mother left him with the Duke and Duchess of Windham. Emmy is is not accepted by her neighbors and is trying to handle her young cousin Winnie, who has a tendency to wander off for long periods of time. Watching St Just and Emmy come to terms with their past and realize they are deserving of love was a wonderful experience. Grace Burrowes has a wonderful way of bringing emotional depth to her stories and showing the little things that show caring in a relationship. I look forward to Lord Val's story. I also just saw Tantor is picking up the rest of the Windham stories about the daughters later this year and I will be making sure to hoard credits so I can get them on release day.

    "The Soldier Book 2 Loved It!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Soldier the most enjoyable?

    Loved the flow of the storyline!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Soldier?

    Winnie was adorable. I don't care for children in a romance. I read to get away from the rugrats!


    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    Love the sound of his voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Move over Outlander!

    "Mixed feelings, but mostly good"

    Pros: Its a sweet story though slow moving at points, but interesting and nuanced, good character development and even has many laugh out loud moments. Very sincere and written with real sensitivity and skill. A very nice Grace Burrowes book.

    Cons: I found the narration very distracting. James Langton actually creates some wonderful and creative accents and voices, but the voice that he gives the hero and other young male characters sounds old and stoggy. So I found myself torn throughout the book between enjoying the interesting accents and not at all being able to connect them (in the main male characters) with anyone sexy or desirable. Weird.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book written by Grace Burrowes or narrated by James Langton?

    Yes to Grace Burrowes' books which I love, but probably not if narrated in similar way by James Langton


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character should be Devlin St Just who was great in the book, but didn't sound like him in the narration


    What didn’t you like about James Langton’s performance?

    The voices and accents of the heroine and her daughter were irritating and didn't ring true. St Just doesn't sound as if brought up at a public school and in a ducal household. And worst of all, Douglas, who is the excellent hero of another book, sounds like an old man in his 80s.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't think the narration does have redeeming qualities. For the very first time, I don't think that I am going to finish this recording. I have got a third of the way through, and may leave it there.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not generally picky about narrations, but this is so disappointing, I love all Grace Burrowes' books, and really hope that future narrations of her books will reproduce her excellent characters in a recognisable way.
