Publisher's Summary

In the feuding English court, gentle Lady Madelyne suffered the cruel whims of her ruthless brother, Baron Louddon. Then, in vengeance for a bitter crime, Baron Duncan of Wexton—the Wolf—unleashed his warriors against Louddon's domain. Exquisite Madelyne was the prize he catured...but when he gazed upon the proud beauty, he pledged to protect her with his life.

In his rough-hewn castle, Duncan proved true to his honor. But when at last their noble passion conquered them both, she surrendered with all her soul. Now, for love, Madelyne would stand fast...as bravely as her Lord, the powerful Wolf who fought for...Honor's Splendour.

    "Love the story, hate the narrator's performance."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I loved the book and that was the reason I also wanted the audible version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the character development.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator made it hard to listen to the book, the female voice was horrible. I have read the book and was really looking forward to audible version but the narrator made it a difficult process, I had to stop listening to the book to digest the voice. It was really bad acting and the narrator made the story boring because she did such a horrible job. I would never listen to another book with this particular narrator.


    What character would you cut from Honor's Splendour?

    None

    "Overall, okag."

    I'm a Julie Garwood fan through aand through. The story, as well as the characters were great. The narrator's voice was just too much at times and would make me cringe. I often imagined an older woman sitting on a stool reading into a mic, her gin and tonic in one hand and a cigarette in the other, surrounded by smoke.

    "Great😄"

    I've reread this several times and now thanks to Audible it's a re-listen. This is one of my favorites of Julie Garwood's historical romances. Along with "Secrets", Guardian Angel ", "Saving Grace" , and "The Bride". Great story . Anne Flosnik isn't one of my favorite narrators. She does an ok job. Definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "Awful narration, so so story"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Anne Flosnik?

    I've enjoyed previous Julie Garwood books. I've hated every narration I've heard Anne Flosnik perform. This is the last time I'll listen to anything she narrates.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Possibly- I don't know if I've changed, or this book's characters are more stereotypical than some of Garwood's others, but I require more from the people I invest my time reading about... Specifically, the protagonist was silly and childish- and while the author told us over and over again how she inspired universal love and adoration in all around her, I didn't feel it. The character repeatedly jumped to illogical conclusions, was "adorably" bossy (and amazingly right about the things she butted into, given the clear thinking errors she demonstrated about so many other things) and alternatively curiously progressive. The book is set in the late 11th/ early 12th century, but the protagonist could have been plucked from any damsel-in-distress story set in any time period.

    I'm confused by the rave reviews of others.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    Davina Porter, Carmela Corbet, Sara Coomes- pretty much anyone who can muster a decent accent and is able to do a tolerable male voice without making him sound like the villian in a campy horror movie. Flosnik is dreadfully melodramatic, and she especially butchers male voices. I find myself trying to imagine what listening to the story by a more skilled performer would be like, and wondering if my reaction to it would have been more favorable.


    Was Honor's Splendour worth the listening time?

    It passed the time on a long drive, and I finished it, but I wasn't much invested in the story. Getting past the narration was a serious challenge, and there were times I opted for silence or am radio in a different language.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this for a discounted price. I'd have been very disappointed if I'd wasted a credit.

    "It too so long to get to the point"
    If you could sum up Honor's Splendour in three words, what would they be?

    No real focus


    What was most disappointing about Julie Garwood’s story?

    Took the characters along time to show any emotion. The story line was long and there seemed no real point

    "Disappointed"

    I love this story it's one of my all time favorite historical romance novels but I really dislike the way the narrator portrayed Duncan. He does not sound like the strong passionate warm man that he is in the book. And Madelyn sounds kind of kind of daft through this portrayal not like the innocent with a fiery temper. I love this book but hate this audio.
