This was a superb WWII story. Without relying on gore, this book illustrated the horror of the war and difficulties and loss of the French by German occupation. Yes, there is violence. It is well-done and necessary where it's included. My heart broke for the heroine and cheered for her at the end. The narration was spot-on and helped make this a 5 star must read for any who are WWII history geeks.

Another great addition to the series.

Well-written with excellent narration. I love this author and this book was worth the listen. It was interesting going backwards (reading about the daughter and granddaughter first) and seeing where those great ladies came from.

Fantastic narration.

Loved the narration but it wasn't enough to make the story great. It was just a little too slow for me. My personal preference.

Superbly entertaining!

I'm not sure what I expected when I started this book. But I'm so glad I did. Phaedra Patrick has penned an entertaining, quirky, and well-written, this story is brought to life by the wonderful narration of James Langton. Arthur loses his wife, gets depressed, and stumbles through his grief. But when he finds a charm bracelet, his life changes. I enjoyed riding on Arthur's coattails as he discovered the secrets about his wife, himself, and his family. If you want a feel-good, fun tale that is well-crafted and full of surprises, this is a book for you! I highly recommend it.

Another winner!

Ms. Weir has done it again. I have become a fan of this HF author and paired with Rosalyn Landor, this purchase was a no-brainer. Excellent biography, well-researched and superbly written, I gleamed some new information about third wife of Henry VIII. The narration really brought the book to life.

A very interesting biography of one of my favorite actresses. Listening to this made me appreciate her even more. The narration was fabulous.

Riveting!

The narrator really pulled me into this story but the writing kept me listening. Excellent facts and personal histories of those involved in the North African conflicts of WWII. I loved the POVs of not only the Allies but also Rommel. Fascinating if you are a WWII history buff.

Delightful!

Great for an afternoon listen. It broke a long vacation drive for us. Narrator is excellent and the story entertaining. I learned some new trivia about Babe!

Fun and fast listen!

I love Dawn Brower's stories and this novella does not disappoint. I first met an older Earl of Coventry in another book. This is the story of his younger years and falling in love with Lady Abigail. Entertaining, well-written, and romantic. The narrator was okay. She had good inflection but her voices often got mixed up and a couple of the Earl's friends occasionally sounded like feeble old men. However, the story itself made it more than worth a listen!

God I love this duo! Every time I finish one of my own books, I treat myself to a breathtaking escape with a Kindle book narrated by Boulton. And then I doubt my own talent compared to hers.
This one began with a bit of humor. Olympia is a naive princess in love with the image of hero she has followed throughout his naval career. Captain Drake is a reluctant hero who is more worried about self-preservation than reputation. Yet time after time, he finds himself in situations that proclaim him a victor and a hero.
Then the darkness creeps in. We find Drake is a victim of PTSD. He has demons living within him and following him. Olympia wants to save the world, or at least her tiny country that she's never seen, and he wants to save his skin. But as the story progresses, we find Drake to be more the hero than he himself wants to admit.
This was a fast-paced, epic romance that pulls you into the years after Napoleon. Kinsale's prose is magical and realistic. Her characters are complex and keep you guessing. The romance is always gasp-worthy with the mandatory happy ever after. I can't tell you how many times my hand went to my mouth as I listened. Either from horror, surprise, or romantic perfection. A must-read for historical romance fans.
