I'm always pleased to see more of Mary Balogh's back list coming out in Kindle editions -- the latest being her Georgian series from the mid-1990s. Since the Rosalyn Landor audio version was issued at the same time, I chose to listen rather than read.
My ratings: 3.5 stars for the story; 5 stars for the narration.
The love story is beautiful -- classic Mary Balogh -- especially Lucas's gradual realization that he really isn't "heartless" after all. Anna's Big Secret, however, was dragged out too long, although it was so awful that I could understand her reluctance to confess it to her husband.
As for the Georgian setting -- I didn't feel it -- other than mentions of the clothing and hairstyles. Perhaps I'm spoiled, having just read several titles by the consummate Georgian-era author, Lucinda Brant.
Mary Balogh can't write a bad book, though, so if you're a fan like I am, try this one. I will definitely read the sequel, Silent Melody.

Balogh is a MUST listen, add Landor to narrate and you have a GREAT listen.
The story flowed impeccably, as MB's stories always do.
RL's narration was spot on.
Goes in the 'Read Again' file.

None of them really.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
