What made the experience of listening to What a Wallflower Wants the most enjoyable?
The narrator was amazing, first off. The story was unique and engaging, which I've found is incredibly rare in historical romances. It can be easy to find engaging historical romances, but I've noticed very few authors stray from the path of cliched plots and characters. I'm very happy I've discovered another one that isn't afraid to create their own story.
What other book might you compare What a Wallflower Wants to and why?
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. The story couldn't be more different in so many ways, but as I was listening to Rodale's book I kept thinking back to Millay.
Both these stories deal with the aftermath of rape/attack, and both had an incredible empowering undercurrent through out.
Have you listened to any of Carolyn Morris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I heard the first novel in the series. She's excellent, I'll be looking into more novels she's narrated.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The moments where Prudence reclaimed her body and her identity, then her strength to find happiness despite of the oppression of her time.
Any additional comments?
Okay, so here's the thing with Rodale's novels from what I've experienced. These books are NOT historically accurate and the characters don't fit all too well into their time period.
This can be very distracting. When you listen to these stories, you really have to listen to them the way you would listen to a dystopian or science fiction novel; otherwise, it'll drive you insane.
However, the characters and plots are so good, it's worth excusing the inaccuracies. At least it is to me. I definitely recommend at least giving them a try.

The first time they are intimate with each other is one of the most romantic love scenes I have read.
