Well now...

I thought this was a good listen. Lucy Scott did a good narrated job. Though I think my wife would have enjoyed it more than I. I liked the characters, though I did feel some went missing at times. Would have been a good movie back in the romantic days. A book with romance, betrayal, brutality and compassion. It was relaxing. Particularly after some of the scary brutality of some of the medieval books I have been reading/listening to lately. Worth a look for sure.
