This was a very slow paced romance that had it's emotional, funny, romantic and sad moments but I found myself scrolling along some chapters in order to get to the end. This is not because it was a horrible story or badly written but it just isn't my preferred listen. I also didn't realise that this was an inspirational Christian listen - not that that would have put me off but I'm sadly more into bodice ripper historical or paranormal romances.

So, if you're looking for a light, sweet romance that has no 'hot' spots except kissing then this is your book. The author's comments at the end were interesting as she explained most of what the premise of the story was true and a lot of the things that happened were accurate and a historical fact.

Worth a credit? Unfortunately, not mine but there are many listeners out there who may enjoy this.

Save your money, save your credit. I couldn't stand the spoiled, demanding female and spent most of the time hoping the male lead would shake her or yell at her OR something! It may have been the narrator's voice that bothered me too b/c although she wasn't horrible, she was definitely not great. Someone owes me a credit...audible for offering this or the author for writing it...I'm not sure but someone owes me a credit.
