What disappointed you about The Daughters of Palatine Hill?
As historical fiction goers, this one is pretty weak. It's set in Caesar's Rome, but aside from saying so, there are few details of life, environment, history, to support the claim. mostly seems to be about the rules of being a good wife and daughter, over, and over, and over again,
What do you think your next listen will be?
Murphy's Law and the Doll House
How could the performance have been better?
Though there are several narrators, they all speak overly slowly and distinctly, making for a wooden effect.
What character would you cut from The Daughters of Palatine Hill?
The characters are pretty interchangeable.

This was so well-written; I was captivated fairly quickly. The book has three voices and each narrator did such a great job that I was frozen in place listening for what came next. The author did a splendid job; great research and fantastic characterizations - it was almost as if the characters were standing in front of me, performing just for me. At the end, my throat swelled up & it was all I could do to not to spill over in tears. This is a fantastic book!
