Publisher's Summary

Amelia’s detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she’s forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride. Graham’s strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline. And away from the family he has sworn to love and protect. Both must learn to have faith and relinquish control so they can embrace the future ahead of them.

Kind of bummed out

I couldn't listen to the narrator - I only got to 17:22 when I ran out of patience. The narrator is much to sing-song especially with the male voices. I'd rather read this than listen to this version.

Great Story, poor recording.

Would you listen to The Heiress of Winterwood again? Why?

I loved this story. I wish the recording would have been done by a British actress since the story is set in England.

Pretty Good

I really enjoyed this story but I believe the narrator was mismatched to it.
The narrator has a very good voice, and I think she would sound great in something like a documentary.

Good story, HORRIBLE narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jackie Schlicher’s performances?

NO, NO, NO. First of all, the story is set in England so an English accent should have been used. Secondly, there is some kind noise in the background like crinkling paper or turning pages AND smacking/swallowing almost the entire time. I usually had to keep the bluetooth almost completely out of my ear just to be able to tolerate this mess. Thirdly, there is hardly any distinction at all between different people talking.

Any additional comments?

Story was good, liked the mystery, but the narration ruined it and I stayed annoyed most of the time and didn't enjoy the book hardly at all. I will listen to another book by this author only if the narrator is different.

It lost me...

At first, I felt really drawn into this book. It was off to a great start. The second half lost me. I did something I've never done before which was to "skim" through the audio recording just to wrap it up! The first half of the book there seemed to be so much potential for an in-depth relationship to develop between the main characters. Instead, the second half of the book was spent dealing with a kidnapping. I was just bored to tears. Sorry. I really have no interest in reading a sequel.

Good book, didn't love the narrator

The book was good enough, and I really liked the relationship with God that weaved throughout it, but the narrator was not my favorite.

Good Christian Regency

Would you listen to The Heiress of Winterwood again? Why?

It was good to find a Christian Regency that was more than a fluffy, mushy romance and actually had a strong supporting storyline and well drawn characters

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

A little predictable but generally good.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The American narrator reading a book set in Britain was a bit of an issue, though she did do her best, I think she found British accents challenging. Also, she seemed to read rather slowly, extending a 350 page book to nearly 11 hours.

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

Rather too long to listen to in one sitting.
