Publisher's Summary

The wondrous New York Times best seller!

From the excitement of modern London to the echoing hallways of a medieval castle...Experience the power of audio to sweep you away to the world of Jude Deveraux, one of America's most beloved authors -- in a tale of love stronger than time itself.

A love for the ages....

Dougless Montgomery tried to be the ultimate American woman -- but somehow she always ended up the victim of family jokes. This time they would really laugh. On what was supposed to be a romantic vacation for herself and her lover, Dougless finds instead a journey of disappointment, heartbreak and abandonment. What Dougless needed now was a knight in shining armor. What she got was just exactly that!

From today's most admired storyteller, here is an unforgettable tale of a most miraculous love affair: a meeting of passion, wit, and true romance between a thoroughly modern woman -- and a man who lived 400 years before!

©1990 Jude Deveraux (P)1990 Simon & Schuster

I LOVED this book

But apparently that only applies to the print version. I have had a copy of this in paperback almost since it came out and I reread it every couple of years because I really like the story. I HATED the abridged audio version. It probably wasn't the narration, which although I didn't care for the voice of the daughter, Stephanie Zimbalist did a pretty decent job. It just was so chopped and short that I felt cheated and somewhat frustrated. Jude Deveraux has such rich stories with so much built into them that when that's all chopped out for the sake of brevity it's very hollow and disappointing.

by Joyce

I have read this book many times but was not disappointed in the audio version. I thought the narrator was excellent and the book the best. Well worth the money.

Abridged version leaves much to be desired.

I love this book. I hate how it was chopped into bits. Only worth listening too if you want to be reminded how good reading the book was and not to enjoy the story.

A Classic Romance!

This book came to me highly recommended. And I have to say, I was not disappointed.

A fabulous roller-coaster ride filled with adventure, humor, and a steamy romance.

Ms. Deveraux, keep me guessing all the way till the end.

I will never listen to an abridged 'book' again

This has been a favorite re-read of mine since the book came out. I love the escape. However, the abridged audio of this book is terrible. I will stick to the paper copy from now on.

One of my favorite books now on Audible

This has been one my favorite books since it was originally published in paperback. It remained on my bookshelves, never to be traded or given away and reread at least once every three years. It's not great literature but it is good fiction and entertainment. I didn't know it was on Audible until I took advantage of their latest website-wide sale and looked for several books I wanted and there it was! For some reason it speaks to me. I'm not a Jude Deveraux fan so I don't know how this compares to her other books, but I recommend this one for hours of good listening.

Too many key events missing.

I read this book years ago and still have the book. In fact I read it 23 years ago; it was the best book I had ever read about time travel. I was very disappointed with this ABRIDGER version of the book. It was shorten way too much. Maybe I am not being fair with my rating because like I said this book was and always has been my absolute favorite time travel book that I have had for years and have read it maybe 4 times through the years, so yes, I was very disappointed that so much was left out and a full version of the book would of been so much better, but has not been recorded yet that I know of.

Enjoyable

Even though it is a romance (can I say, chick novel?), I found it very enjoyable. Not having ever experienced the unabridged version, this version seems just fine to me. I’m sure it would be a lot better with more detail, but I liked it nonetheless. Sometimes you just need to take a break from heavy reading and this is just the thing!

NW-TX- I have read & listened to this audiobook.

The first 2-3 chapters are slow to establish the plot but I ultiimately I enjoyed it. The narrator is very good.
