This is a difficult question to answer because the audio version couldn't be as good as it is without the wonderful material from the book that the narrator performs. That said, Alex Wyndham is the perfect performer, and the emotion he portrays during the reading of the letters and diary excerpts that this book consists of, just blew me away. He makes the characters so believable, and on occasion I even cried because what he was reading was so so sad. Well done to Lucinda Brant on writing the perfect story and to Alex Wyndham for performing it perfectly.
I have never read a book like this before, but as it is volume one, I will admit that I am thoroughly impatient already for the second volume.
I have to choose the character of Antonia as my favourite purely because Alex's portrayal of her with her feminine voice, and her French accent is just so good. It's hard to believe that a man with a most masculine, deep speaking voice could so believably speak as a woman.
You couldn't really make a film of this book because it's just about letters and diary entries between characters from the Roxton Family Saga series. It could easily be a few scenes in a film if the Saga itself became a series though.
As I always say when I review an audio book written by Lucinda Brant, and narrated by Alex Wyndham, they make the perfect team. It's a real pleasure to both read and listen to the stories and I hope the partnership continues for a long time.
