Where does Salt Bride: A Georgian Historical Romance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of my top books,
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jane, Lady Salt she is a strong and amazing woman
Have you listened to any of Marian Hussey’s other performances? How does this one compare?
no this is my first so nothing to compare it to
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
the end always moves me when, Salt talks and explains what he has discovered.
Any additional comments?
I found that Marian Hussey's voices in the beginning of the book didn't match the characters she was reading but as she got in to the story and the different characters I found that the book started to come alive for me

What a wonderful cast of characters! From the very purest of hearts, Jane Despard, soon to become Lady Salt, to Diane, Lady St. John, whose mind machinations will have you anxiously follow her every move. This woman is capable of horrendous deeds. Beware!
New-to-me author Lucinda Brant, provided a fabulous listen and I won’t be able to NOT read/listen to the sequel. She has me hanging from a precipice. She draws her scenes in such detail I feel the swirl of emotion bouncing in the expanse of the scene. She captures scrupulously what happens in the mind of an individual when her dark side demands total manipulation of people with the quest to gain her goal. It leaves the reader shuddering with angst for her victims. I love to hate her villain!
I enjoyed hearing the jargon of the day in dialog and participate in more than dancing and balls. Narrator Ms. Hussey is easy to listen to, with sharp, well enunciated words. Her voice is perfect in depicting the innocent demeanor of Jane, to the voice of the Earl, a man whose heart loves Jane, but dares not believe such a thing himself. After all, didn’t she break off their relationship four years earlier? Or was it the other way around? This is the second time I’ve heard Marian Hussey narrate. Her voice is extremely versatile, a lower resonance and quite mesmerizing in how she portrays characters.
We got to see what happens below stairs amongst the servants, how loyalties are made or broken. We participated in the lives of the crème de la crème of society.
I particularly marveled at the in-depth characterization of deranged Diana, Lady Saint John, who had a façade of normalcy, but evil lurked behind her beautiful face and proper demeanor. She was absolutely terrifying.
Ms. Brant has written quite a few novels. I’ll be delving into her others. It’s such a pleasure to find another author who pulls the right strings enthralling me, completely entertained for hours!

Much as I liked Jane & Salt's story, they were upstaged by the scenery chewing Lady Diana, a truly dreadful friend and mother. I hope she has another juicy role in Salt Redux. This was my second listen and I enjoyed the book much more. Perhaps it was my mood. Or maybe it was catching details I had missed the first time. Whatever the reason, I urge you to listen.
