Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, anyone interested in historical fiction, England and mysteries would enjoy this book. Set in 19th century England we get a real feel for how different the time and place are while the author creates moral and ethical dilemmas for the characters to wrestle. Her novels are thought provoking and lead me to want to learn more. I looked up the trans Africa railway and read about it half way through listening to the novel. I also read up on the Prince of Wales and his wife HRH Princess Alexandra of Denmark. It is quite interesting the way the author takes historical settings and overlays her mystery in a plausible way.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoy her characters and their growth.
Which character – as performed by Jenny Sterlin – was your favorite?
Thomas Pitt is the protagonist and my favorite, however, I must say that the voices are so good, I forget that one person is doing all parts. The maid is fabulous for her unique point of view and the Duchess for the same reason. Naraway too is compelling based on his more cynical view of the human race but he is not immune to change.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No. But it did make me think.
Any additional comments?
Fans of Downton Abbey would like these books.

Loved it! The story line was clean and the characters were nicely evolved. Of course I enjoyed the English imagery.
