Have you listened to any of Gethyn Edwards’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Gethyn Edwards narrates this story beautifully. With rich emotion and excellent character voices, it is Gethyn's best work. A powerful, emotionally charged performance. I definitely look forward to hearing more from this narrator. Very well done.

This is the story of Gates de Wolfe, great grandson of William de Wolfe from Kathryn Le Veque's book The Wolfe. Gates de Wolfe is known for his skill and strength as a knight, just like his legendary great grandfather. But unlike the very honorable William de Wolfe, Gates is a well known rake. The love and leave them kind of guy who never looks back, or gives his lady conquests a second thought. Gates de Wolfe is serving Jasper de Lara, one of the great (Marshall) lords. A man with wit, intelligence, and irresistible charm. Gates is well loved by his comrades, as well as every female who crosses his path. Known as the Dark Destroyer on the battlefield, Gates is greatly admired and respected by the men who serve and fight along side of him. After returning home from France, Gates is asked to retrieve Jasper de Laura's daughter Kathalin from a convent and return her home. Kathalin has been a ward of the convent for the last fourteen years. Extremely naive in the ways of the world, Gates begins to open Kathalin's eyes to the finer things of life as they travel away from the convent toward her home. Not only does Gates realize he is undeniably attracted to the beautiful lady Cathalin, but he soon realizes he cares for her more deeply than he knew to be possible. Lady Cathalin falls very much in love with Gates. How could she not, he's a de Wolfe. But upon returning home and becoming reacquainted with her parents, she discovers they not only want her to marry another man, but betrothed her to Gates' best friend. This story is so powerful, touching and heart felt. It made me cry and it made me smile. One of my favorite Kathryn Le Veque stories.

Being a narrator and reading so many character's voices and accents is a special gift. Mr. Edwards seemed very professional and capable to make the audio version interesting.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did certainly did try to listen to it in one sitting, I love listening to the audiobooks, but sometimes "life" gets in the way and I can't listen unhindered.
Any additional comments?
I love audio books because I can listen to the book as I am hands free to be able to do other chores or activities.
