Publisher's Summary

In 19th-century Isle of Wight, Sarah Bembridge sets on a journey of adventure and misadventure. With Napoleon Bonaparte just across the Channel, poised to invade, Sarah has other things on her mind.

First, she rescues a shipwrecked sailor, whom she suspects to be French. Soon afterward, she gets engaged with a handsome officer. And when the mysterious Mr. Howard calls at her inn, Sarah’s life becomes even more complicated.

In a rollicking romance that sees Sarah search for a suitable husband across the backdrop of the Napoleonic War, her story takes her from deserted manor houses to country inns and ancient standing stones to bright churches and lonely cottages.

Cute Story!

I wasn't sure what to really expect with this book as it's not a genre I usually read/listen to, but I was pleasantly surprised at how sweet the story is! Taking place at the beginning of the 19th century, it's about and told by a young woman named Sarah. She explains how she was married three times within one year.... quite a feat for any generation but especially back then.

A hint of humor, a dash of excitement and a large dose of a sweet love story, Sarah's Story is a book I would recommend if you want something to read that's positive and light.

The narration by Nancy Daniels makes this Audible version my preference over reading it via a Kindle or soft cover. Her reading style and pace are perfect, and I love how she brings out the distinct personalities of the characters.
