Fantastic! My favorite de Montforte Brother!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Beloved One to be better than the print version?

Yes and no. Yes, because it is easier to pick up on details that are missed in the reading. No, because I might read certain passages differently than a narrator would. Both are enjoyable!


What did you like best about this story?

Hard question because the story is one of my favorites! There is just so much detail! A lot of action and a lot of description. The hero and heroine both suffer from a severe lack of confidence, yet they each manage to instill confidence in the other. Each becomes stronger within the relationship.


What about David Stifel’s performance did you like?

He shows good emotionality and does not always rely on the emotion of anger to convey a 'strong male,' though he certainly uses it when the text calls for it. He is also unusually good at reading female characters so that the listener knows they are female.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh, there were many in this book! One of the most moving scenes was when Charles , despondent upon believing his family no longer cared for him, blindly walks into the river. Although smaller and not as physically strong as Charles, Amy throws herself into the water, praying to God that she can save him. Another moving scene was when Charles first returned home after a year and a half away. He arrived home early, catching his family unprepared, and shocking them all. Later, when Lucien confronted Charles about why he allowed the family to think he was dead, I could almost see Lucien's calm demeanor, with the "barely perceptible tremble of his lip" when he asked his brother if he really did still have a heart.


Any additional comments?

One of my favorite stories! Heartbreaking, funny, and in the end, very satisfying!
