What made the experience of listening to Silent Melody the most enjoyable?
The only bit I enjoyed was relationship and plotting of the Aunt and Uncle.
Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Balogh again?
I have listen to a number of Mary Balogh and enjoyed a number, but I am finding I don't enjoy a number of her book and there can be a repetition in a number of the story lines.
Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I like Rosalyn Landor, I think she reads beautifully and brings the best out of the characters.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I found it very frustrating, he is 9 years older than her, they met when she is 14 years old. He admits that it is wrong to be having sexual thoughts about her, yet when they met years later, he still beds her, though he till thinks of her as a child. Then justifies it all by saying "she was always a woman, even at 14". Through out he tells her what is best for her because it suit his idea of how he see her. I found him extremely selfish and wished she would tell him were to get off.
Any additional comments?
I had listen to Heartless and had met the two characters, so was curious about what happened to them. She had grown up while he stayed the spoilt self-pitying boy.
I was enjoying the book until it abruptly cut off. Audible did not get the entire recording so double check before you purchase that they have corrected this problem. Hard to rate when so frustrated!

I absolutely adore Mary Balogh. The way she captures a story draws you into the characters. She's so good at it and I absolutely love the story.
Initially I was disappointed because I got through quite a bit of the book and then the rest was cut off. The publishing house seems to have fixed that issue and I was able to complete the entire book.
I think this book is even more special because it includes a main character with a disability. Most authors are not brave enough to do that nor are they able to pull it off. Well done!
