When Geoffrey Landon brings a marriage proposal and paid passage to Virginia from Richard Selden, Amelia knows it's meant for her sister, but pretends to be the betrothed. Wanting to escape an upcoming arranged marriage, she lies to Geoffrey and her family and sails to Virginia on the eve of the American Revolution. If war comes, she may be trapped by events, considered an enemy, and forced to return to England. On the voyage, she loses her heart to the charming, cynical Geoffrey, who has his own reasons to distrust her. Amelia dares not tell him the truth - until it is too late.

Good Story. Bad sound quality.

(I having a difficult time reviewing this book because the sound quality was terrible. I contacted tech support but their advise didn't resolve the issue. After downloading to two separate devices and using format 4 and enhanced it still wasn't a clear download. I can only hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.)

With that being said, I did listen to this book but it took a lot of concentration. The story itself was interesting and the characters were well developed and engaging. I enjoyed the love story and history of the voyage from England to Burmuda and then to Virginia. The narrator has a pleasant voice and did great for the female voices but had difficulty with the male voices.

Overall, based on my sound quality issue, i would suggest reading this book rather than listening.

Charming and romantic

Where does The Proposal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first audiobook.

Have you listened to any of Christine Cunningham Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. Ms. Smith used so many voices that made the story come to life. She has a very pleasant voice and the sound quality was excellent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Romance in Virginia before independence from England.

Any additional comments?

This book was very enjoyable. The story and characters were well developed. The love scenes were surprisingly bold for colonial times, or so I would think.
