Great great great

What made the experience of listening to Dawn on a Distant Shore the most enjoyable?

I read reviews about people not liking the second book as much as the first, but they never take into account that the first book is new, is an unknown story line, unknown characters etc. You have to go into the second book with that awareness. I really loved that this book picked up right where the last book left off. I loved the real emotions I felt when reading this. Genuine anger, happiness and one moment of utter shock and heartbreak. I love when I can feel the book and this one, like the last, gave me that.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love all the characters, but who's favorite ISN'T Robbie!? He's just that lovable guy that is always there and cares way more for others than himself.

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth the read. I'm alternating between this series and "The Tea Rose" series (If you haven't read it, DO!!!) and I'm much anticipating returning to Elizabeth and Nathanial and family!!

Would you listen to Dawn on a Distant Shore again? Why?

Probably not, the story is not that complex. The story is forced in some areas.
