Publisher's Summary

True love is for fairy tales. At least that is what Miss Hannah Knight believes. Her formative years were filled with difficulties, but she carries one memory with her always—even through the darkest times. The summer she spent at Manchester Castle where she started to dream of a happily-ever-after in the arms of the man who holds her heart.  

War has left Garrick Edwards cynical. He never expected to inherit the title and become the Earl of Manchester, but his brother drank himself into an early grave leaving a daughter behind and a mountain of debt. Reluctantly, he returns to his ancestral home. When he arrives he finds Hannah there. Her letters during the war had given him hope when there was none; however he doesn’t believe he deserves her love.  

As they rekindle their friendship they find hope they thought they’d both lost. In the bottom of their hearts they cling to that hope and start to wonder if some dreams can come true. The question is will they be brave enough to reach for them.

OMG! Such awful narration I can’t listen!

I don’t understand, how does a writer or editor choose a narrator with no acting or reading skill and a speech impediment to represent a book??? I’m sorry, but only a few minutes into it and I find it so offensive I can’t listen. Thank heavens it was just a impulse listen because it was in the romance package, I’d be beyond upset if I had had to pay for it!!

Definitely interested in hearing more

I was given a free copy of this audiobook for an honest review.

I love historical romance stories, and this one fit the bill. I’m a big fan of Dawn Brower as well.

Story:

I could easily have seen this story written as a novel, instead of a short story. Either way, it held my attention the entire time. Is there a part 2 to this story? Based on the way the ending was (Garrick wanting to go off to find his friend), the author made it sound as though there could be.

I was so hoping that there would be a different ending at least regarding how Lady Corrin was so sure that Garrick would ask her to marry him. She was definitely a bitchy character that I feel needed to be put in her place. I think it would have been funny had Garrick told Lady Corrin that he needed to discuss something with her, only to turn around and tell her that it was time for her to go home because he was marrying Hannah.

Narrator:

This was the first time I’ve listened to this narrator. While she did a great job the majority of the story, there was an issue with the first 10+ minutes. I don’t know what the issue was exactly, but the best way to describe it is as follows:

She’d get to the last word of the sentence,

The second the last syllable (from the last word) was out of her mouth,

She would pause the recording or stop it.

This left a very stunted speech or way of reading the story. It was really annoying at first, and I wasn’t sure if I would even be able to continue the story. Thankfully, the issue stopped, and all was well.

Sweet sweet love story

Such a sweet love story of a fairy tale that comes true. Great characters, great story in a lovely setting. Hannah is one of my favorite female characters. She strong and true to herself despite the hardships she has faced. She’s calm under pressure and confident enough to take charge of her own future. Garrick is dream worthy, no wonder Hannah fell in love with at first sight and carried that love for years. Great story I definitely recommend this story
