Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, It begins as a good story of a young girl in a very difficult situation. She gets a real chance for a better life, when she goes with her cat & her meager possesions to live at the estate where her aunt & uncle work. You see her grow & blossom.
Due to an impossible love, she feels she must move away, and finds a position with the family of a very famous historical person. This changes the course of her life, & leads her to the fields of the Crimean War, back to London, and eventually back to the estate of her teen years.
It shows a young woman who will not give in to her desires, but lives as God's Word teaches. It's so different from what we see modeled by almost everyone these days, from those who help lead our country, the hollywood crowd, the sports figures, to the next door neighbors. We may not always get what we want, but God honors our obedience, and knows what is best for us.
What was one of the most memorable moments of God's Handmaiden?
There were several times where you see God working out the details in His own time and way, which were a delightful surprise.
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator did a good job. The narrator gave me the time to enjoy a really good book that I wouldn't have had time to sit down and read, and to enjoy it as a couple. My husband enjoyed it, too.
If you could take any character from God's Handmaiden out to dinner, who would it be and why?
The historical figure. I don't want to give away the surprise.
Any additional comments?
If you enjoy good, clean, historical fiction you will really like this book.

Interesting, though more in the style of a 19th century novel. It shows the depth of Gilbert Morris as a writer, not needing to fill every story with hideous catastrophe or heart-wrenching romance, so typical of most Christian fiction authors. I enjoyed the historical references to the Crimean War.
