Fabulous narration for Jane Austenesque story

I started reading this as a Net Galley advance copy but I had listened to all of Julie's other books on audible.com downloads. So, frankly, I had been spoiled. As soon as I discovered the download was available I purchased it and began listening. The narrator couldn't be any more perfect for this book, which really enhanced my reading pleasure. Julie and Jane lovers will not be disappointed!!! Worth the wait!

I don't care for mysteries, however...

I didn't realize this was a mystery-I bought it because I enjoyed "The Apothecary's Daughter" written by the same author and narrated by the same person. I'm picky about narrators and this is the first one who sounds American but does English accents really well. Maybe she is British; either way she has a good mix of characters and I really appreciate her interpretation and is the only reason I stuck with it. I think Emma is a little naïve considering her age and everything is wrapped up in a pretty little bow towards the end-I would have liked more story about the family and how they resolved their issues.
If you have read and liked this duo before, you will probably love this book, if you like mysteries, you probably
will too. I don't know if I'll listen to it again, but it helped pass the time while I cleaned my house and ran errands.

Wonderful!

This is the third book by Julie Klassen that I have read--one right after another! I understand that her books are classified under the genre of Christian Romance, but I don't believe that phrase does her work justice. There certainly is romance in Klassen's novels, as well as a heroine who strives to emulate Christ's love and compassion for others in the choices she makes.

Klassen's books, however, are so much more than that. The characters, including the heroine, are complex, fully drawn people who struggle with difficult situations--and who, as all of us do, make mistakes and often need to grapple with difficult decisions that are rarely black-and-white in nature.

Her books could easily be included under the genres of Historical or Literary Fiction, given the beauty of Klassen's writing and the historically accurate settings in early 19th century England (or at least the three novels I've read were).

In any case, if this sounds at all appealing to you, I recommend you give Klassen a try if you haven't already. You could probably begin with any of her novels. I greatly enjoyed this one, which (unlike the other two) had a mystery strongly woven into the plot. I also read The Apothecary's Daugter and The Painter's Daughter, similar titles but very different settings and plots and equally wonderful.

I must not forget to mention the wonderful narration by Elizabeth Jasicki. It was a pleasure to listen to her reading of The Tudor's Daughter!

Excellent! Another fabulous book by Klassen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, well written and performed.

Any additional comments?

Another excellent rendering by Julie Klassen and Elizabeth Jasicki! This is my third one so far and I have really enjoyed them and am so glad I discovered them! Just enough mystery to be exciting! And I'm thinking it's such a shame that today's society is in such a hurry - so much of a rush for everything from conversation to love that all is lost in text messages, faxes, speed dating, internet dating, sex before marriage, "trial" marriages, etc. If one always chooses to put the cart in front of the horse, which direction will you go? Backward is my observation.

We live in a "progressive" society?!

Thoroughly enjoying these adventures in past days and times. :-)

Not for me

I just could not get into this story. It may be very good, but it just did not grab my attention and i hate to listen to a book that bores me at the beginning.

Great read...

This book started slow but heated up about half way through. I enjoyed the references regarding faith and it add strength to the book. There were several twists and turns that kept me interested. The narrator did a good job and overall I am pleased with this novel.

Loved it!

This romance novel was very sweet and had many funny moments. I am becoming a fan of this author and have lost a lot of sleep listening to the past couple books by her. If you like old-fashioned romance and mystery, this is a book(or author) for you!

Another PHENOMENAL Novel by Klassen & Jasiki

As always, Julie Klassen's composition & Elizabeth Jasicki's narration of this work are MASTERFUL!!! This is at least the 3rd book written by Klassen & the 2nd narrated by Jasiki to which I have listened ... savoring every word! Klassen's plots are artfully constructed with beauty, mystery, suspense, and poignant moments that literally bring me to (happy) tears. I relish the protagonists and how they work through their various adversities with strength in God -- No profanity or inappropriate scenes of sensuality, only the innocent blossoming of real love. The details of "scenery" and "costumes" from this historical era are enchanting, as well as the skillfully-intertwined relationships among characters, and the ever-intriguing plot as it unfolds. Oh how I wish there were a never-ending supply of audio books by this author & narrator!!! (I adore Elizabeth Jasicki's gorgeous narration -- so beautifully and softly articulated, not rushed or over-acted. She's at once calming and compelling -- so amazingly talented in voicing characters male and female, young and not-so-young, with many different types of accents.) At the end of the book, my heart is full with satisfaction and joy in how God "works all things together for good," but I am sad that this particular novel is at an end. I delight in the lessons learned from it and look forward with eagerness to the other books by this author & narrator. I recommend them without reserve!!! (Thank you, thank you, Ms. Klassen & Ms. Jasicki!!!)
