Publisher's Summary

He's a duke. He's a mathematical genius. He can't talk and he's locked in a lunatic asylum. Only a modest Quaker girl can reach him, but when she helps him to escape, she's swept into his glittering aristocratic world, her life torn apart by his desperate attempt to save himself.
Laura Kinsale personally chose the exceptional talent of Nicholas Boulton to narrate her classic romance Flowers from the Storm - cited by readers of The Washington Post and Glamour magazine as "one of the greatest love stories of all time" - creating a fresh and unique work that brings all the power and intensity of the original to audio.

~COMPELLING!!~ Love This Author! Love This Book!

After listening and loving the book "My Sweet Folly" I knew I had to listen to other books by Laura Kinsale.

"Flowers From The Storm" is a captivating romance with heart. The characters seem so real & true to life and main characters of Christian and Maddy are written with integrity and dimension. The story weaves a tale of "in sickness and in health" as it shows how romantic opposites in many aspects of life can triumph through adversity.

This book is not for you if you are looking for lots of sex scenes. Its more of a genuine romantic story that is passionate, compelling, and emotional rather than fantasy or cutesy fun.

Also, the narrator is WONDERFUL!! Can't say enough about him!

Definitely, definitely did I say definitely worth a credit? Yes!!

- 🌼DARA "💙 A Good Story Epecially w/Romance🔹Audiobooks+Work=Adventures 💫 Enjoy Listening, Debating, & Reviewing with My Book Club🔹No Spoilers 🙊"

Exquisite in every way!

The most famous of Laura Kinsale's novels, Flowers From the Storm certainly lives up to the hype and more! This is my second time to hear the book, and I enjoyed it so much more this time.
The story is compelling and beautiful. A different type of love story, as is most of Kinsale's work. The narrator is amazing, and brings the characters to life.
The story revolves around a plain Quaker girl and the mad worldly Duke she rescues from insanity. It's incredibly touching and never boring. Both characters grow and learn from their relationship. It's a breathtaking book from start to finish.
I highly recommend this book to romance and historical fiction fans!
