Anne Stuart does it again. Stuart writes for the intelligent reader. The Heroine is strong, educated, has endured emotional loss and yet, perseveres through, while living an independent life. However, Stuart is honest. Stuart depicts women as we truly are: our insecurities with body image, striving to please perfectionistic parents, failed relationships yet most of all, the vulnerability which lies in each of us when it all seems to be too much and we so desire to have strong arms to hold us while we let flow a good cry. The narration is first class talent as usual and I commend Stuart for her careful choice in the narrator she chooses for her novels. We the reader are never disappointed. A reader can always be certain without first listening to a sample that each and every audiobook narration is performed brilliantly!!!
