What did you love best about The Anchoress?
It held my interest and was easy to listen to. It helped make the time fly by when I was reorganizing and cleaning my kitchen.
What other book might you compare The Anchoress to and why?
It reminded me a bit of Pillars of the Earth and The Chalice because some of the conflicts and character types were the same.
What about Mary Jane Wells and Steve West ’s performance did you like?
They were both engaging.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I finished it in two days, which is a good sign.
Any additional comments?
I thought this book would show Sarah's entire life as an anchoress. Instead the story roughly spans a year. Many things happen in the town that Sarah lives in during that year so while some of the story focuses on Sarah adapting to her new life, a good deal of it also focuses on what is going on in the village.<br/><br/>The story ends in a decent spot, but I couldn't help but wonder if it will have a sequel. Some of the story lines felt unfinished. Then again, it could be the author's way of showing that "life goes on" and "the story never ends". <br/><br/>I enjoyed listening to this book. It didn't move me, but it did entertain me. The characters were likable and Sarah's life is definitely unique. Even though Sarah stays in one place for the story, the book doesn't grow stale. <br/><br/>I would like to read more by the author.

I felt like there was no real plot. Just a boring lady locked in her cell.
