Set against the backdrop of an elegant Cornwall mansion before World War II and a vast continent-spanning canvas during the turbulent war years, this captivating story tells of an extraordinary young woman's coming of age, coming to grips with love and sadness, and in every sense of the term, coming home....

I was in aw over Judith, the main character, her personality, empathy and enthusiasm for life. I enjoyed the woman’s perspective and how the story moved along as her life evolved. The historical nature was interesting and what it must have been like living during the Second World War #Audible1

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

I thought it would be better. I'm not sure I want to listen to it again in order to get the meaning. I understand the story but I'm guessing it seems a lot about nothing. Simple story, too many words. (Salliery esq)

silly story going nowhere

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-14-10

I listened to the whole thing but it was a disappointment after having listened to a couple of really good talking books. The love story was real but silly and only made the story depressing to listen to as she had a taste of freedom to go back to her life and live out her boring life. This book was a waste of time and was very forgettable. The narrator was annoying as she had a dry mouth and puacked a lot. Annoying as the book.
