Unfortunately the narration was poor to middling which impacted my enjoyment of this book. The intonation, etc., of the narrator made the heroine come off as totally unsympathetic in the beginning of the book. Only as the story moved on was I able to get past the problem with my listen--the narrator mispronouncing French words that were spoken by the heroine, a French teacher and fluent in French, for one and this downbeat tone of depression for the heroine's voice that seems due to the narrator rather than as written. A shame because the overall story is unique, has a hopeful message, and is a memorable one. Catherine Richmond has no control over the narrator and had I read the book I'd likely have given it a 5 Star rating. Characterization was refreshing. I'd recommend the book but I'd avoid this audible version unless, like me, you really need to hear it instead. I will be reading future Richmond books but hope to avoid this narrator.
