Don't let the title of this book scare you away. I absolutely loved this book. This is one of those books that compelled me to look up the actual history for the period because I found it so interesting. The narration is in my opinion among the top 5 in all the 300 plus books I have bought through Audible.

I absolutely loved this book. Initially I was hesitant to even purchase the book because of the title, but I am so glad I did. I really enjoyed being transported back to the depression era and learning through the book a little bit of what it was like for some people then. I also loved that it made me think a lot about the way we treat the elderly, especially in our culture. We always forget that they were young once too. I also saw the movie, which I liked, but the book has so much more to offer.

I thought this book was so much fun. I love a book like this that can make me laugh out loud. The dialog between the characters and the interactions with Fred cracked me up. Susan Ericksen did a really great job with the narration. Loved it!

Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite authors in this genre. I absolutely loved this book and the characters of Charles and Anna. I would recommend reading the short story in On the Prowl (not yet available through Audible) which introduces the characters and the story. You'll get a lot more out of this story if you know the history of the two main characters. This is a great addition for Mercy Thompson fans.

I love Julie Garwood's historicals, and was so happy that this one was narrated by Rosalyn Landor. She is one of my favorite narrators, and does the different accents brilliantly. Many of JG's books are narrated by Ann Flosnik, who is not my favorite. Overall, the book was a fun and entertaining read.

I really loved this book, both the story and narration. I got so emotionally connected to the characters and the story hooked me completely. It is rare for me to get so attached to characters that I get choked up, but it happened to me more than once.

I really enjoyed this book. It is always fun to listen to a story that has really well researched historical facts turned into fiction. Alison Weir is one of the best at this. Rosalyn Landor, as usual, did an excellent job with the narration. She is one of my favorites.

I loved this book, however, Anne Flosnik's narration was so annoying it was almost difficult to listen to. I wish I would have just read an e-book version.

I cannot for the life of me understand why authors keep picking Anne Flosnik to narrate books. Most of her reviews are the same as mine. She ruins otherwise decent and good books.

This is one of my favorite Lisa Kleypas books. It is one of those books that was hard for me to put down, even to go to sleep. The story was engrossing, and I loved all the characters. I highly recommend it!
