A wonderful surprise

I absolutely loved this book. I bought it on a gamble after listening to a sample and I was caught at once by the author's easy-to-read and engaging style. The story is gripping and the characters well developed and highly believable. The narrator is excellent too. Highly recommended!

Absolutely superb

Would you consider the audio edition of Shields of Pride to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the book but thoroughly enjoyed listening.
Jonathan Oliver brought the characters to life and the accents were excellent.

What other book might you compare Shields of Pride to and why?

None.............this book is unique

Any additional comments?

I am now a dyed in the wool Elizabeth Chadwick fan.
