Summary

Blamed for her uncle's death, fifteen-year-old Annie is on the run. Knowing the perils she will face on the streets of eighteenth century London, she disguises herself as a boy.
Her life on the streets is cut short when she becomes Captain Hawke's cabin boy. Not only must Annie work alongside the Realm's motley crew of outcasts and gentlemen, she must also keep her superstitious shipmates from discovering she is a girl.
Annie vows she will never leave the Realm, where dreams are chased, shattered lives can mend, and secrets are stowed like keepsakes in an old desk drawer. But when her past catches up with her, can she return to the Realm? More importantly, will she have a choice?

Stunning narration!

Where does Secrets of the Realm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Narration wise, it stands near the top!

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's hard to say. I loved Annie, the main character, but several secondary characters stole my heart as well. Barrett and Captain Hawke are two of them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed several times! Annie really got up to some real antics! There was a point that definitely brought tears to my eyes as well though.

Any additional comments?

Very fun book and a brilliant narration! Highly recommend this one on audio.
