Reclaimed by his wealthy uncle, former Shawnee captive Corwin Whitfield finds life with his adopted people at an end and reluctantly enters the social world of 1764. He plans to return to the colonial frontier at his first opportunity - until he meets Uncle Randolph's ward, Dimity Scott.
Deaf since a childhood bout with Scarlet fever, Dimity Scott intends to be cherished for herself, not her guardian's purse, even if it means risking spinsterhood. Then the rugged newcomer arrives, unlike any man she's ever known. Dimity has learned to manage her silent world, but unaccustomed to the dangers of the frontier, can she expect love and marriage from Corwin, who longs to return to his Shawnee life?
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I couldn't get past 15 min. of listening. I have no idea if the story was good or not, the narrator read the male parts like a robot in a trance. Stopped listening and plan to return it.
