As a fan of Penny Vincenzi I was slightly cautious about an abridged version but didn't expect to be so disappointed.
All the subtleties and much of the conversation which characterise Penny Vincenzi's work are completely lost. The many twists and turns of the story have largely become basic narrative so you don't become involved with many of the characters and at least one of the twists was left unexplained (unless I fell asleep and missed it).
I feel sure I would have given the full version a very different rating and will steer clear of abridged versions in audible in future.
The characters aren't very interesting in this one. The surprise plot with the hidden daughter was weak. This is the only book of Penny's I forced myself to stick with.
