A nice listen

Setting: Barkshire & London, England 1841 (prologue is 1838)
Genre: Romance
Narration: While Elizabeth Jasicki doesn't have quite the vocal range as some other female narrators, she does a creditable job.
This book was a little unusual for a historical romance in that the woman is the one who is more sexually aggressive. I prefer strong female protagonists, and Kate definitely falls into that category. She has a secret project she won't share with Ned because she doesn't trust him. Ned doesn't share his secret because he believes that the fact of it makes him unworthy. So, the main plot is about Kate and Ned working through their issues and secrets. There is a sub-plot having to do with domestic violence. I would have liked more details about Kate in those years between 1838 and 1841 to give it a more rounded feel, but the absence didn't detract from the book. I liked the characters and how they dealt with their problems. I don't think this is a can't turn it off kind of book, but it is quite enjoyable.
It is worth the credit, and the time spent listening.

Story held my interest.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes- Good balance of romance and suspense

Would you listen to another book narrated by Elizabeth Jasicki?


Any additional comments?

It's impossible to write too much about the story or it would give away too much information about the plot and ruin the book for others. But Kate was quite a lady and I loved what she did for other women who needed help.
