Publisher's Summary

My name is Sevin. Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin. Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me. After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guest house so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding. Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage. I'd accepted those rules and my fate - until I met the one I wanted to sin with. That was when restraint became a problem, especially since "the one" wasn't Elle; it was her sister, Evangeline.

Contains mature themes.

SO.MUCH.ANGST

If you could sum up Sins of Sevin in three words, what would they be?

Angsty, Forbidden, Heartwrenching

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sins of Sevin?

Well, I don't want to leave any spoilers, but I would say this, half way through the book at Part 2.

Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden and Aletha George ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not. But Sean sounds Just like Kevin Bacon!

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

I actually DID listen to this in one sitting. On the plus side, my house was clean by the end of it.

Any additional comments?

This is now one of my favorite books.
Penelope Ward's stories are amazing.

A good forbidden love story but not a light one.

I kept passing on this book due to the arranged marriage. However, I like Penelope Ward's books so I took a chance with my credit. I admit the middle of the book was a difficult listen because of the unfortunate life paths of Sevin and Evangeline. I was also angry at the selfish characters: Lance, Olga and Elle. This was a dramatic, forbidden love story. The couple's love was sweet, passionate, and sexy. My heart ached throughout until I ended up crying with the surprise ending. With all the angst, I'm glad I used my credit. I star off because of my anguish.

Disappointed

I have loved all her books until this one. For one I don't agree with arranged marriages so the start of the book didn't grab me. I loved Sevin and his character but Evangeline just made me mad and I didn't care for her. The author did a great job with showing the chemistry between them but the rest of the story just wasn't for me.

Awesome Narration

It was an overall good story. Though at times intangible to relate too.. LOVE the Narrator.

All slow burn with no fire

Don’t let the cover fool you. This was a good story, but I thought it was too sad. I thought at some point it would get better, but it really didn’t. The main characters had horrible lives. Also, it was all slow burn with no fire. I would call this Christian romance.

Too torturous

DNF
Tried to get into the book but right away you could tell the religious beliefs were just to much along with the whole arranged marriage and friction between sisters. Not for me. Too tormenting
