#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts delivers a thrilling story of family secrets and unexpected passions, set against the high-stakes world of championship thoroughbred racing…

Kelsey Byden always believed that her mother was dead. But now, after all this time, she has discovered the truth: Naomi Chadwick is still alive - after spending years in prison for the murder of her lover. 

Now, at Naomi’s Virginia horse farm, Kelsey is trying to sort out a lifetime of deception - and her feelings about her mother. The bonds of love can be fragile...as Kelsey learned from her recently ended marriage. But as the two women rebuild their relationship - and Kelsey finds herself swept into an unsettling new romance - she must decide once and for all who she can trust, and who threatens to betray her...

Critic Reviews

"Roberts paints her story with a broad brush, but its colorful canvas, easily identifiable heroes and villains and swirling action add up to another winner for this popular author." ( Publishers Weekly)

Eh

I generally love Nora Roberts' books, but I couldn't wait for this one to get over. I enjoyed learning about horse racing and their owners, but never really invested in the characters. The narrator used a high pitched 'girly' voice for the main character that was especially grating. I like Nora's strong women-- this one came off as stupid and weak in comparison.

Do not get too caught up on the performance!!

If you read any review over this most will say the narration wasn't that good. And its truly not the best. It was one of my least favorite people to listen to. She really didn't distinguish between characters. Her voices rarely sounded different and because of that you might get a little mixed up with a couple dialogues. Its more like someone just reading the book instead of making it come to life. BUT overall this book was so good! The story in the romance area is very relatable. No overly dramatic event happened that brought them together. You have frustrating family members which most people can relate to. The main character is trying to find herself and make the best of what life has given her. Its a wonderful book and even thought the performance wasn't a 4 or 5 star for me, the book was. Such a good read.

A moderately good listen

Any additional comments?

Initially, I thought I'd chosen a dud. It took a little while to get into the story, but it did ultimately engage me and overall, I enjoyed it.

Awesome story

This story was totally riveting. The story flowed, kept you going It was hard to put down when I needed to do other things. The characters were very likable and very real. I felt the love story blossomed in a very realistic manner. My one and only problem with this book was the person reading it. She seem to be very monotone and didn't make a lot of changes in the voices between the characters. At first it was very off putting, however the story was so good that eventually that became a noticeable. Even with the bad reading, I highly recommend this book.

Bad narrator!

Any additional comments?

The story was OK at the beginning, but got boring about 3/4 of the way through. There was too much about the ins and outs of horse racing, but I could have finished the story if it wasn't for the narrator. Not only was her voice annoying, but she kept pronouncing words incorrectly. She kept saying "show-der" instead of shoulder and "so-ger" for soldier. There were other words she got wrong as well, which distracted from the story. I found myself constantly wanting to correct her. I would recommend reading this book yourself, instead of listening to the audiobook.

A 6-star listen

Wish I could give this one 6 stars. The story has lots of twists and turns, some sexy stuff, the dialogue between the H/h is smart and funny plus the narration is excellent.
