I have been reading more books these past few months rather than listening to audio-books, because I was making poor choices; either the story was lacking or the narrator spoiled it. But I got lucky with "Come the Morning" . Not only is the story unique, but the author keeps things flowing and exciting. I listened to it 13 1/2 hours straight through except for a few hours of sleep and other necessities.
The story is about the daughter of a Gaelic noblewoman and a Viking warlord, Mellyora MacAdin and the King's Champion Waryk de Graham; Lord Lion. Mellyora (who was trouble with a capital "T") had already pledged her heart to her childhood sweetheart when she was summoned to appear before her godfather, King David. When she was told she was to marry the fierce Lord Lion (whom she thought was an old Norman knight) and he would take control of her lands, she decided to disobey King David. She was not going to allow King David to make decisions concerning her future and assumed if she escaped from the castle she could go home and be independent. Once outside the castle, thing do not go as she planned. It had me laughing out loud.
The story has all the elements that make a great story.
Narrator Sandra Burr gave a good performance.
I highly recommend it.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A decent narrator that could keep track of the characters and which part of the world the book occurred. It vacillated between Scots, Irish, English, some weird scandinavian something or other, and US southern accents. So awful...
Any additional comments?
Don't do it. Just don't. Or, if you do... be prepared to return.
