I am very fond of historical novels. I have seen Royal's name and finally tried this one. Waste of time. Not to be mentioned in company with Penman, Dunnett, Weir output.
I truly enjoyed this story. Well-developed characters and a plot with plenty of twists. My only slight objection is to the title, which I think might have been better. Great writing. I look forward to reading or listening to the rest of the series.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes - an easy read for historical detective addicts, read it almost in one.
What did you like best about this story?
Eleanor, the new prioress. Intelligent, intuitive, with a sense of humour - and of course beautiful.<br/>Also the details about the monastery life.
What about Wanda McCaddon’s performance did you like?
I have heard Wanda McCaddon on different books - all clear performances that help the book along with good rhythm and almost perfect diction.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It is not high drama - but does have humour in the perennial quirks of people.
Any additional comments?
At the very end there are some anachronistic reflections on morality which were superfluous.
