This was a gem of a book that came up under romance, of which there was certainly plenty of, but it was also a genealogical mystery and a sweeping backward looking family saga as well. Beautifully written with sights and sounds and smells described as the dialogue and characters thoughts moved the story along such that the balance was automatic. I hope to read more books by this author!!!

Mystery, History, and Romance all in one! I very much enjoyed this story. The narrator did an excellent job!

But why does a book initially written in German and wonderfully translated into English by a Brit, and set in England Germany and India, have to be read by an American with an emotionless voice? It is the main thing that puts me off buying audio books and has reconfirmed for me why I don't often.
I am reading this as well as listening to it and I can't describe my disappointment when I began listening. It's a great shame to spend money on something you're expecting to enjoy only to find it monotonous to listen to. In my own head whilst reading I am hearing Diana's voice as well spoken with a mild-German accent. To hear it narrated so harshly was a shock and the reason why I very rarely buy audio books. I am probably not going to continue listening to this rather just read it for myself.
