These are letters from the private correspondence of the Roxton family, spanning 1743-1777, with extracts from the diaries of Antonia, fifth duchess of Roxton and seventh duchess of Kinross. They include Roxton's last letter to Antonia. This volume complements the first three books of the award-winning Roxton Family Saga: Noble Satyr, Midnight Marriage, and Autumn Duchess, with a foreword by a late-Victorian descendant, Alice-Victoria, 10th duchess of Roxton.

Loved this compilation of letters that fills in the blanks in the Roxton series. Loved the ones especially from the Duke (Monsigneur). Such a great series, I hope there will be more like this, especially wonderful with Alex Wyndham narrating! He captures the tone of this series so well!

As 35th in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young woman, but she knows her table manners. It's forks on the left, knives on the right - not in His Majesty's back….

Another fun "mystery" with Lady Georgiana, this time in Kent at the grand home of a duke, at the invitation of his mother, a close friend of the queen. Georgie is there to help in the transition of Jack, heir and nephew to the present duke, newly found in the Outback of Australia, since the present duke hasn't the inclination of producing an heir of his own. Of course, wherever Georgie goes, murder ensues. Clever mystery, I was surprised at who the culprit was, I admit, and Darcy and Melinda are on hand for comic relief and support. As usual, Katherine Kellgren is tops at the narration and all the various voices. I recommend this whole series. It's like stepping back into time during 1930's London's aristocratic set. A favorite of mine!

When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

A Colossal Disappointment

Overall

Reviewed: 05-31-10

The narrator, Mark Feuerstein, had a flat and often harsh tone throughout the entire story, which made it nearly impossible to distinguish one character from another, plus they all came across as incredibly unlikable. I cannot recommend, don't waste your time, I'm sorry I wasted one of my precious Audible points!

Between the bad narration and ridiculous plotline I was seriously displeased I didn't read the reviews on this first. What a waste of my time!
