Publisher's Summary

England, 1161: Ellen, a blacksmith’s daughter, wants to become a swordsmith, but for a girl, this male profession is unimaginable. Forced to run away from home, she disguises herself as a boy and has the opportunity to accompany a famous swordsmith to Normandy, where the sons of the greatest barons are trained to be knights. Under the assumed identity of Alan, she learns the trade and becomes familiar with court life. When she falls in love with Guillaume, a young noble man, she can’t divulge her secret for fear it will endanger her dream of fame and recognition.
Across countries and time, Ellen struggles to achieve her dream and find her place, always in fear that Thibault, an evil knight who tracks her every move, waits around the corner. Full of tension, intrigue, and treachery, The Copper Sign is a passionate tour de force that will leave you breathlessly awaiting book two.

Unsure about the story

Can't be sure about the story because I was unable to get very far into it , it certainly had every ingredient to make a good tale , BUT , I just could not do with the voice and the style of the narrater , it's a pity that we are unable now to hear a short sample of the books we are purchasing , these are after all talking books and as such rely very much on not only the story but how it is spoken .

This for me is spoken in such a condescending voice and at a pace and rhythm that made it impossible for me to get no more than an hour into it , thereby making it a complete waste of money .

Authors need to think very carefully about who they have to speak the words they write because it may well be that their work is judged unfairly .

I think Audible owe it to it's customers to introduce a way to allow us to sample the sound of all the books we are thinking of purchasing .
