Publisher's Summary

Green Darkness is the story of a great love, a love in which mysticism, suspense, and mystery form a web of good and evil forces that stretches from Tudor England to the England of the 20th century. The marriage of the Englishman Richard Marsdon and his young American wife, Celia, slowly turns tragic as Richard withdraws into himself and Celia suffers a debilitating emotional breakdown.
A wise mystic realizes that Celia can escape her past only by reliving it. She journeys back 400 years to her former life as the servant girl Celia de Bohun during the reign of Edward VI - and to her doomed love affair with the chaplain Stephen Marsdon. Although Celia and Stephen can't escape the horrifying consequences of their love, fate (and time) offer them another chance for redemption.

A different narrator would have made all the difference.

The narrator's accents for the different characters were very good but this book has a lot of description and the enjoyment of the story was marred by the reader's monotone delivery and disregard for punctuation. Commas treated like periods and then other times periods were so lightly skipped over that everything ran together. Some of the highlights and critcal moments in the story were lost as a result.

hummm...

Story was pretty predictable but interesting. The narrator was terrible and I found it hard to keep my attention because of it.
