Forever Remain is just wonderful, It gives you more information that is only hinted at in the novels. You find out about former characters that are off the stage, and if you're like me you have been wondering about. Perfection.
Alex Wyndham is so very easy to listen to. We are so lucky to have the continuity of his, stellar performances through out all of Ms. Brant's books.

What did you like about this audiobook?
The narration is "off the chain" pitch perfect. Mr. Wyndham recaptured every voice from the original audible Roxton family series of books. Secondly, Ms. Brant has an acute ability to write material that transcends the norm. The dialogue appeals to the very heart and soul of her readers. The letters and diary entries are personable and you believe, that it would be what they would write, had they actually lived. The characters jump off the page (you'd swear that you know them). I am gripped by very word that is mouthed. I smiled, laughed, cried and felt deeply touched, wishing families could actually be that loving and close.
How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?
I already have all of the books and all of the audio series. I am hoping that the author will return to the Roxton family and address stories of the extended family members (other children and grand children).
Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?
Ms. Brant is a delightfully skilled wordsmith. She writes almost poetically during her sagas.
What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?
This is the best narrator I have ever heard. Alex Wyndham was perfect for the era and dialogue.
Do you have any additional comments?
Please keep using Mr. Wyndham as an Audible narrator. He would be excellent for the "Dragon Archives" by Linda K. Hopkins (the present narrators are so awful, I decided not to get the audible versions). He would also be excellent for the first three books in the Legacy of the King's Pirates by M.L. Tyndall. I have the other audible books in that series. Thanks Audible for continuing to provide great listening opportunities.

“Forever Remain” is another wonderful member of the Roxton family series. The second volume of personal letters and diary entries written by members of this extended noble family is a perfect companion to the latest Roxton novels: Dair Devil, Proud Mary and Satyr’s Son. It offers an insight into the main characters’ inner world, feelings, way of thinking and motivations. It fills in some gaps in the lives of certain family members regarding events and actions that are mentioned in the novels but not presented in detail because they are not within the timeframe or main plotline of the novels. The style and content of each letter and diary entry speaks volumes about their writers and enhances the listener’s understanding of their character and motivations.
The narrator, Alex Wyndham gives a remarkable performance in conveying the content of these very personal letters and diary entries. Each character has its own voice according to their gender, age and disposition, as it was in all the Roxton audiobooks.
This is not a stand-alone book but a completion to the above mentioned three novels. You can listen to it as one audiobook after you finished the novels but, I think it can be best enjoyed if you listen to each block of letters shortly after you finished the respective novel.
Forever Remain is another 5 stars audiobook by the Lucinda Brant – Alex Wyndham team I warmly recommend, together with all the Roxton saga novels, to all fans of historical and especially Georgian romance.
What made the experience of listening to Forever Remain: Roxton Letters Volume Two the most enjoyable?
Alex Wyndham brings each and every character to life with his perfect performances. He makes them believable, and when he reads the letters written from the heart between characters you can feel the emotion, you can believe he IS that person. I haven't come across any narrator that is good as Alex Wyndham is.
What did you like best about this story?
These are a collection of letters/diary entries rather than a story, I love that from them we get a better insight into the characters from Dair Devil, Proud Mary, and Satyr’s Son all in the Roxton Family Saga. I particularly was moved by the letters from the 5th Duke of Roxton to his son Henri-Antoine.
What does Alex Wyndham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Alex Wyndham becomes the characters he is portraying, their emotions become his emotions and you can just feel what they are going through be it happiness or sadness. Listening to him reading takes the written word and makes it become a movie in my mind!
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
An amazing insight into the life and loves of a family you have grown to love through the Roxton Family Saga books by Lucinda Brant!
Any additional comments?
I only want to add as I tend to do when commenting on the Lucinda Brant/Alex Wyndham collaborations that together they make a perfect pairing!
