A Beautiful Love Story with a Difference
The narrator was extremely good, taking on the various accents brilliantly. Plus the story was so fascinating I couldn't stop listening
The Orchard House - because it too went back in time and to an exotic location - another beautiful story.
She has a lovely clear voice, very concise and read it at just the right speed. Very good at all the different accents. Her narration brought the story and people to life. Would definitely recommend her.
It made me cry and sad as Anahita didn't know what a wonderful life her son had and also because there is nothing worse than losing your child for whatever reason
Lucinda Riley does write wonderful books, with just the right amount of romance and mystery, and her descriptions of places and people are amazing. Love her books.
Did enjoy it but a bit longwinded
