Publisher's Summary

In this splendid New York Times best-seller, Julie Garwood brilliantly crafts the majestic story of a young Englishwoman determined to fight for her freedom...a woman whose life would be transformed by the rare, unexpected gift of love.

When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

At first Johanna was shy, but as Gabriel tenderly revealed the splendid pleasures they would share, she came to suspect that she was falling in love with her gruff new husband. And it was soon apparent to the entire Highlands clan that their brusque, gallant laird had surrendered his heart completely. But now a desperate royal intrigue threatened to tear her from his side - and to destroy the man whose love meant more to her than she had ever dreamed!

    Story
    "Beautifully Written Highland Tale"

    This story is beautifully written and the characters are so real to life. This is a highland story that has a backdrop of domestic violence. It may not seem unusual to read of domestic violence in highland historical romances but most stories just show it as common place. This book shows how Johanna deals with the abuse and handles it. Of course there is more to the story as it wouldn't be a highland story without the romance. There are many poignant moments that had me upset or mad but there were just as many times I smiled. It is more of a sweet tender highland story rather than a highland battle adventure. Its worth listening to.

    Also, Rosalyn Landor was excellent as usual!!

    "WOW... WHAT A JOURNEY, A PERFECT HIGHLAND ROMANCE"

    Now hold on and bare with me 'cause I'm about to gush here and probably say love and loved quite a few times - so apologies in advance.

    I just love Julie Garwood's books, and this one especially as it's filled with such a rich array of strong, loveable, quirky and funny characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Then I love the way Johanna & Gabriel's (I definitely loved him) characters evolved as they grew closer together and they learn from and with each other as their love story unfolds. I also love the way JG writes - painting each scene for us to soak up and mentally visualise the clothes, the culture, the Castle, the Warriors, the fighting, the love scenes and all the other touching, tender, violent, funny and sad events contained within these precious hours of listening. I love her story which blends heartache, violence, lust, love, betrayal and a host of other emotions making it a (Highland) Historical romance lovers perfect listen.

    Finally, I love Rosalyn Landor's narration as she not only breathes life into every character, successfully tackles the difficult task of dialects but she also puts just the right feelings that's needed whether it be anger, sorrow, pain, lust, happiness or love and so, as each chapter is revealed, it captures the great synergy between author and narrator that I wish all books would have.

    Worth a credit? I think you may have got the impression that I loved it - so that my friends is a OH AYE twas a bonny wee book and an offa gid listen.

    "love this book!!"

    I read this many years ago and listening to it just brought me back and I remembered why I love the chacters so much then. I had to listen to it twice because it had me captive. Julie Garwood is an amazing writing.

    "Good Enough for a Highland Romance"
    If you’ve listened to books by Julie Garwood before, how does this one compare?

    Saving Grace is like I said in my headline: Good enough. Julie Garwood has other historical fiction, and highland romances specifically, that are better. This book has many of the right pieces, with the main and supporting characters and plot, but she doesn't pull it all together in a way that makes it amazing. The characters are sometimes out of step with their characterization; thus, making them and their presence in the story less memorable and appealing. Some elements of the plot that are introduced, initially seem very interesting, but then they aren't followed up on, or left hanging entirely. This left me wanting more by the time this tale ended. I don't regret listening to this book, but I wasn't rushing to continue listening to it either.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I wanted to want to, but no.


    Any additional comments?

    Rosalyn Landor helped me like this book more than I thought I would. She always does a solid job when she's been the narrator of things I have listened to, and she came through again here.
