Captivating historical fiction

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

Yes! The style is kind of a cross between Charles Dickens, Bronte sisters, and Jane Austen. It vividly evokes the Victorian era, and has nuanced and fascinating characters.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Amy Snow?

When Amy and Mrs. Riverthorpe come back from the ball and talk over wine.


Have you listened to any of Melody Grove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I had not, but I thought she did an excellent job - particularly with Aurelia and Mrs. Riverthorpe's voices.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Amy gets to York and discovers the next part of the treasure hunt.


Any additional comments?

Although I absolutely loved the book, I felt like there could have been more romantic tension between Amy and Henry. I also didn't really care for the shift of perspective in the epilogue at the end.

Could Not Be Better

If you are seeking a read that is part Dickens, part Bronte, part Austen and yet totally original, then Amy Snow is THE novel for you. I don't recall historical fiction that so captivated me (and I have read a good deal of it). The writing is absolutely superb, the narration perfect for the author's brilliant words and the story kept me hungering for more and more. When I finished it, I immediately started to listen again - something I rarely do. But this is a very unique, cherished book in so many ways. Ms. Rees is to be congratulated on writing a novel that is now on my "Top Ten" list - of all times!

You have to be a fan of historical fiction to fully appreciate Amy Snow, but if you are, you will be thrilled if you listen to it. It will stay with you for a long time. It's a gem!
