It's a cute story and was engaging from the very first. Although the narration could have been better (Cynthia Barrett can't do male voices), she's a good reader and does female Scot lasses well. She is able to draw you into the story.
It was easy to listen to. I like Julie Moffett's writing style, she did not use a lot of boring 'filler words" to make the book last longer. Although it's over 91/2 hours long, it kept me engaged from beginning to end and I listened to it in one day.
I like a book that has a story to tell, and "The Thorn and The Thistle" is a story about Scotland's struggle to live under English domination...and a Lasses fighting spirit. There's some violence and romance, but it's mild and tastefully done.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. The narrator is excellent, the plot is engaging, the character development brings the story to life and the romantic relationship is engaging and sweet.
What did you like best about this story?
The voices and the plot. I was engaged the whole time.
What does Cynthia Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Voices with real personality and distinction. Excellent accents (except for the German one, maybe).
Any additional comments?
The sex scene was terribly disappointing. I think the author should either skip sex scenes or make them enticing. Painful virginal sex with minimal foreplay is not what women want to read!!
