4 Little Love Affair Stars
Ahh doing this challenge and trying to listen to a book from each category has been difficult but finally, a book that has captured my attention in a category I am not usually a fan of.
Clara is a determined woman who wants to help her family but doesn’t want to settle for someone who she doesn’t love. But family obligation is pushing her in a direction she isn’t sure she wants to go in.
Jasper is a solider and is helping a wounded ally. Jasper comes across Clara and she helps in any way she can. Their connection is started and Clara is conflicted she knows she shouldn’t trust this man because he is working on the other side of the war. But she can’t let him or his friend die.
I really enjoyed this book, and I know there are more to this story that will be filled in with the next two books.
The narration was really good too, Ian brought these characters to life for me.
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

A Bit Predictable
Narration - Ian Gordon - He has a lovely narration voice with a British accent. Good storyteller, my only question is what accents did "American's" have during the civil war? Did Americans's still speak with their native accents? When did we lose all the British, Irish, Scottish, German etc... and develop the Southern Twang? Just a thought...I honestly am curious.
ANYWAY, back to the review...he's a pretty good narrator. Pretty believable females, nice, smooth narrative style.
The story was a clean romance, with our heroine being left behind to run the farm while her brother goes off to war. There's a wealthy neighbor who could solve all their money problems, but she's just not feeling him.
Along comes Jasper - a soldier who approaches the girls to beg for food, and even though Clara runs him off, she can't stop thinking about him. So, you pretty much know where this is going.
The story was a bit predictable, but the narration is enjoyable enough that it was a nice listen.
