Publisher's Summary

The year is 1783, and rakish Alexandre Beauvisage is returning from the Revolutionary War when he discovers Caroline, unconscious in the Connecticut woods. Dressed as a boy, she has no memory of her past. Against his better judgment, he takes the lovely foundling with him to his home in Philadelphia and finds his life increasingly complicated as the fiery attraction between them builds and Caro's dangerous past reaches out to her.
Caroline is Cynthia Wright's unforgettable debut novel and is on keeper shelves worldwide. The story of a confirmed rake and an innocent, spirited young woman, it is filled with sensual romance, evocative history, memorable characters, and the joy of true love.
Authors Note, January 2013 - This new, subtly revised version of Caroline addresses issues raised by some contemporary readers. Caroline was originally written and published in 1977, but times have changed. In this new edition, Alec is a more mature alpha hero and Caro is a stronger heroine. If you have read and loved Caroline in the past, I think you will love it even more now!

Sweeping love story follows US War of Independence

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved this audiobook for many reasons. Cynthia Wright gave me great insights into a period of American history with which I was not familiar by delivering many facts and historical details with a light hand. The heroine Caroline was adorable: feisty, smart, brave and impetuous. Alexandre Beauvisage, the hero, is clever, rich, witty, assured - and too cynical and arrogant for his own good. However, I loved him even more by the end of the story for both his physical and mental courage. It takes a strong man to recognise and address his own flaws fearlessly and honestly. I was also enchanted by the cast of characters that surrounded Caro and Alec, especially Alec's grandmother.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the confidence and self-assurance Caro found as she grew up, and the compassion, love and gentleness Alec discovered as he let go of his anger from the past.

Which character – as performed by Emily Beresford – was your favorite?

Caro and Grandma Beauvisage were my favourite characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I experienced many emotions listening to this story - delight, sadness, compassion, admiration - and I often laughed. I felt the whole time that I (and Caro) were in exceptionally trustworthy and competent hands in Cynthia and Alec, and therefore my moments of sadness and worry were fleeing.

Any additional comments?

Caroline is a story that has stood the test of time. This is book one in the Beauvisage series and I look forward to reading all of them.

Surprised

What made the experience of listening to Caroline the most enjoyable?

Most Romance novels will leave me wanting to skip to the end but this one held my interest.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alec was my favorite character because he was so sure of himself.

What does Emily Beresford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love the way this book was read. The characters voices were easily recognizable.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A heart pumping adventure with a beautiful mysterious madden.
