Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener: Season of the Sun first appeared in 1991. Zarabeth, with hair as red as an Irish sunset, is chosen by Magnus Haraldsson, a Viking on a trading visit to York, to be his wife. She is both stunned and fascinated by this man’s bluntness, his arrogance, his absolute belief that she is meant to belong to him. He also makes her laugh and ultimately she gives him her trust, not only with her future but with that of her little sister, Lotti. But Zarabeth’s stepfather, Olav the Vain, has no intention of setting a bride price on Zarabeth.

Zarabeth does eventually return with Magnus to his farmstead in Norway, but as his slave, not as his wife. She wears the slave collar around her neck for all to see, but hides her own pain deep within her.

It is the season of the sun in Norway, the clear midnight life of summer, the season of growth and flowering, of treachery and malice. It was the season of growth for a man and a woman to learn of each other - and themselves.

a season of ups and downs at a record pace...

What made the experience of listening to Season of the Sun the most enjoyable?

I could "see" the characters. When I thought a specific character was at first cheesy and it turned me off I was glad I stuck with it. The story quickly used the ridiculousness of it into a very meaningful aspect of that character. He was introduced to the story so you saw him thru those eyes so your reaction as the story developes is set into the right frame of mind. I didn't see that coming and am glad I didn't give up on it at that awkward moment.

What did you like best about this story?

Zarabeths perseverance...

Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have. I actually get tired of her voice and the way every book she narrates seems to have the same characters at first. This one however was much more individualized and I heard the characters of this specific tale.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes... but there were several and I am not about to offer up the spoiler that this question begs for!

Any additional comments?

Worth a credit? I say buy it.... its cheap enough and I would definitely save that credit for something that costs more... isnt that why we buy credits after all?

A viking story

If you could sum up Season of the Sun in three words, what would they be?

This era when the men ruled and women really had no place.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Season of the Sun?

The night she slipped away and met him at his ship and the way they were happy to see each other

Sad, violent, depressing, abusive

The Vikings were a violent people living in violent times. Rape, murder, and pillage. It's what they did best.It's a very sad disturbing story. A very dark book brought to life by one of my favorite narrators Anne Flosnik,

I LOVED THIS BOOK...

I loved this book. I almost didn't order it because of the mixed reviews. It was different from your normal Scottish Romance, however, once I got into it and knew the characters, I was hooked. There were ups and downs in the story which made it seem real. You have to listen to this one with an open mind...the rapes and beatings were a little disturbing, however, that IS the way things were in that time and place. You wouldn't change a history book because it was disturbing... so keep it all in perspective. I am one of Anne Flosnik's fans... so for me, the narration was wonderful. It's worth a chance to listen to this one...

Who thought this was ok?

Narration is terrible. Really terrible. I feel like I just listened to 30 minutes of the worst book ever.

Print was way better!

Ann Flosnik has a habit of giving the heros all the same kind of voices.
Read this book in print a long time ago, thought it would be good...Not that much!
The voice she gave the hero who is to be a big/enormous warrior turned out to make him sound like a nitwit/stupid guy.
