Not my favorite Alison Weir Fiction
I am a HUGE Alison Weir fan but I was honestly disappointed in this novel. It lacked Weir' s usual passion and suspense. Still worth reading but doesn't compete with "The Lady Elizabeth " or "Innocent Traitor"

Narrator's lisp is maddening
Would you try another book from Alison Weir and/or Julia Franklin?
The story itself was fine- not great, but I knew what to expect from this author. I would certainly read another book by Alison Weir, but I would NEVER listen to another audiobook narrated by Julia Franklin. She has a very noticeable lisp, which I understand is not something she can control, but I really don't understand how you get a job as a narrator with that being the case.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I'm not interested in reviewing the story, just want potential buyers to be aware of a problem with the narration of this audiobook.
Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Franklin’s performances?
No. As stated, she has a lisp that is extremely distracting to listen to and at times even makes her hard to understand, particularly when she's speaking fast or doing an accent. She would be a fine- not great, but fine- narrator otherwise but I just don't understand how she got this job despite having a pretty pronounced speech impediment.
