Forbidden love. Family secrets. A twist of fate. The stunning new generational saga from Belinda Alexandra, best-selling author of Tuscan Rose and White Gardenia. In New Orleans - the city of genteel old houses covered in Spanish moss, of seductive nightlife, of Creole, voodoo and jazz - two women separated by time and tragedy will find each other at last.

Caroline Lee ALWAYS brings the books to life. I'm a Southern girl that and the reviews of her narration isn't fair. I can say that I buy books whenever she is the narrator. When someone is reading a book that lives in Northern US, there isn't anything that gripes my nerves trying to copy a Southern twang! So, give her a break!

Anyone that is of the Christian faith doesn't BELIEVE that you are reincarnated or a star when you die!!! You go to heaven or hell. If you are going to have a Episcopal minister and a Quaker woman in the story, do your research in the bible next time.

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr comes the story of four friends determined to find their stride. This honest look at marriage examines the challenges, heartaches, and sacrifices along with the joy in discovering what it means to be a wife, mother, friend, lover - and most important: your true self. Gerri can't decide what's more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it's time to look carefully at herself.

Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Susan Duerden?

Never ever will I ever attempt to hear a book narrated by Susan Duerden. This sing-song growling voice needs to get a different career! I kept having to adjust the volume. The same over and over rhythm drove me crazy!!!!

If you could sum up The Wedding in three words, what would they be?

Great love story. This is the first Julie Garwood book that I couldn't quit listening too. The narrator made the book.
