Fresh from the Battle of Hastings, William of Normandy has returned home in triumph, accompanied by the English nobles he cannot trust to be left behind. But Waltheof of Huntingdon is not thinking of rebellion; from the moment he sees Judith, daughter of the king's formidable sister, he knows he has found his future wife. The attraction is mutual, but in mediaeval Europe marriage has little to do with love. When William refuses to let the couple wed, Waltheof joins an uprising against him.

What would have made The Winter Mantle better?

After listen to many audible books, and Chadwick audible books, to hear a male voice narrating was disconcerting and therefore, after about 8 pages, I had to stop listening and will be more careful in checking the narrator of a particular novel in the future; similarly, other female authors of midievil historical (romance) novels I will only listen to audible books narrated by female narrators.

What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Chadwick’s story?

The story is great and as with previous Elizabeth Chadwick audible books, with a female narrator, I would have enjoyed instead of not listening and deleting from my library.

At the heart of Mary Higgins Clark's stunning new novel of suspense is a brutal murder: that of Gary Lasch, a respected and successful young Greenwich, Connecticut, doctor and hospital and HMO head. He was found dead at his desk at home, his skull crushed by a blow with a Remington bronze sculpture, a prized piece from his art collection. The news strikes Greenwich society like a thunderbolt - as does the news that Molly Carpenter Lasch, the doctor's young wife, has been arrested for her husband's murder.

What made the experience of listening to We'll Meet Again the most enjoyable?

Jan Maxwell's performance. She has a nice voice compared to the other reader, Christina ______. There are a few other Mary Higgins Clark books I would like to read and listen to but cannot listen to Christina's reading but Jan Maxwell does a very, very nice job and now the only books that I will read/listen to (I switch back and forth - when driving in the car or doing housework I will listen and at night, I will read the Kindle version.
