Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narrator frequently mispronounced words, especially proper names, such as William Cowper and Magdalen College. These pronunciations cannot be credited to simply a difference between American and British English. She also had a way of pausing in the middle of a sentence that was sometimes confusing. But other than that, her narration was a great match for the story.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. It was very good, but I found that I needed breaks from it occasionally.
Any additional comments?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I knew nothing of Hannah More before I read this book. Her life is inspiring and provides fresh perspective on the world and culture. You can't help but hear her story as a call to action against the injustices of our day. This book also made me reflect on the way I live out my own faith.

Hannah More is one of those people you should have heard of, but haven't. What a remarkable person of her time!
The book started slowly, almost assuming the reader understood her importance. Once the immensity of her influence was made clear, the book became much more interesting.
The narrator made the listening difficult. She paused at the wrong times, and it could be hard to follow the thoughts as a result.

Maybe of interest to students studying social history, but could not be described as entertaining by any stretch of the imagination.
A biography perhaps, but even many of these are not quite so dry!

I knew nothing of Hannah More until I listened to Eric Metaxas’ ‘7 Women’. Swallow Prior’s book takes a little while to get going, but once it does, it is an extremely encouraging and vivid portrayal of an extremely gifted godly woman. We need more Hannah More’s!
My only criticism is the voice artist. Her voice is fine, but I get the impression that the recording was heavily edited; sometimes it feels like there is no breath taken between sentences (This is most notable at the beginning of a new chapter). Otherwise, a great listen!
