I was recommended this book when I'd said I enjoyed Historical Romances. I must say I wasn't disappointed. It does grab your attention and keep you wanting to read more and not miss even a small detail. The narrator Rosalyn also does a wonderful job with the different voices and puts quiet a bit of emotion into her readings.
If you are looking for heady mind boggling sex then this is not the book for you.
It was full of romance and very subtly done so you can listen to the book even with toddlers in the back while on a long drive. I was so taken by Susanna Kearsley that I went ahead and bought the rest of her books on audible and listened to them too. All of which have proved to be just as entertaining.

I've given this book a rating of four stars because I enjoyed it overall. If you like Diana Gabaldon (who's book, "Outlander", I would give five stars+) you may like this book. I have read one other book by this author called "The Shadowy Horses". I think I prefer "The Winter Sea". Though both books are enjoyable, this one was far more interesting as to its historical content. Kearsley gives a concise history of the Jacobites and the House of Stuart. If you are at all interested in Scottish history, give it a listen. It is also quite sad in some parts. I am not an overly-emotional person, but found myself crying at one point. In order to avoid spoilers, all I can say is: stick it out to the end. I thought she did a good job of tying things up, but I would have liked a little more......oh well, I guess I just hate to end a good read. It's kind of like losing a friend!
