What a delighful story with lovely twist
A lovely sweet clean spiritual historical romance that keeps your interest. Your heart really goes out to Laura who has went through so much losing her husband, his family really adds to her heart break when they dissolve her marriage after his death. Her secret is a big one which she guards with her life, if people found out they might turn the tables on her. She is doing what she feels is best but things get out and if this one does it will change her life forever.
I thought the narrator did a great job she has no trouble switching from women to men or even children voices. At times her voice does sound a little childlike but one becomes so into the story they over look it. I really liked her male voices she has no trouble carrying off the deep rich tones. There are no background noises, no repeating of words or any volume changes throughout the audio. She does give deep rich emotions to her characters. You have no trouble knowing what each is feeling. She carries off the emotion tones of excitement, sadness etc very well. This is the first I have listened to this narrator and I felt she did a great job pulling the listener in.
This was a fun listen with vivid details given to the plot, scenes and the beautiful landscape. The author gives you a wonderful message of starting over, trusting and forgiveness. I enjoyed the buildup of the romance. I did think at one point Bradford overstep his self when I didn’t feel it was in his place. Laura has some major decisions to make that will change her life. She carries so much hurt and anger that it will be hard for her to overlook what she wants and what is right. I really enjoyed the misunderstanding, the drama and suspense. This was truly a lovely story that I feel most will enjoy.
Captivating Historical Fiction
The narrator, Kendall Atkins Livick, did a wonderful job of differentiating between the characters.
Historical fiction is my favorite genres and I was overjoyed when Ann informed me I won the Goodreads drawing. From the start, I was pulled into the time period and vivid scenery. The character development throughout the book is captivating as we watch Laura mature and apply Biblical principles such as kindness and forgiveness. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel!
