I loved that both Juliette and Paul were both likable characters. I loved that even though she didn't encourage him in the beginning to pursue her that he did. He wanted to recapture that lost relationship from their past that he could still feel was there.
Juliette's sister Amelia was my favorite character and I can't wait until she has her own story.
My favorite scene was when they first were intimate with each other because it really showed that Juliette was willing to move beyond her comfort zone in order to have a real marriage with Paul. That she loved him enough to try to be brave and face her fears.
The time Juliette spend with her son Mathew.
I tried to like it, but in the end I grabbed the text version and skimmed it. I was invested enough to want to know what happened, but not enough to sit through the recording.
Her accents weren't terrible, but she spoke just about every sentence, whether declarative or otherwise, with roughly the same inflection. I'm guessing her accent was fake, as that seems to be a common problem of narrators putting on a non-natural accent: they spend so much effort trying to sound accurate that they don't sound natural.
The book itself was pretty slow. There's a lot of backstory and historical accuracy, but there are also a lot of scenes that don't move the plot forward very much. The slow pace combined with the mediocre narrator, and I just gave up.
It will make me more wary in future
Pitkin pauses every few words, thereby removing all meaning from any prose.
I would like a refund but am having the utmost difficulty in getting this processed by you.
I enjoyed this book, It had a few slow spots but over all it kept my interest and when I had to put it down I looked forward to finding time to pick it up again. The narrator was good, not great, but good just the same. This was book 2 and I will buy book 1. It's definitely worth the low price.
