I really enjoyed the narrator. She does a great job. Story was good, not too predictable. Loved the characters. I needed a light read and this grabbed me and kept me wanting to find out what was next. I recommend it.
Being a Cornish lad (from Penzance) I delved into this magnificent portrayal of Cornish life, of 200 years ago with gusto. I was not disappointed. From beginning to end, I was completely enthralled. The detail to historical and geographical accuracy was amazing. The storyline carried me on, eagerly needed the next chapter of this enthralling story.
I liked the book but wish there was more relationship development between the two protagonists.
Narration was okay. I’ve been listening to Julie Klassen’s books with the same narrator and she’s great at female voices but when she does the men, they end up sounding like old men even though they’re supposed to be young.
I really enjoyed this book, started a bit slow but got better. The narrator was also excellent.. so love the accent.
I liked the story and the narration...
Slow and uninteresting
I liked this story as it mixed some nautical history, cultural obscurity, and an interesting plot. I would recommend reading in book form yourself, though. The narrator was pretty bad. She was horrible at male voices and had a weird high pitched lilting female voice that became irritating quickly.
It was a fine story. I little vanilla. Could have used more sex and less praying but you know...it was a good distracter while I worked or did housework. The narrator was great with her multiple accents and voices.
Story is fun and unique. Good historical references and decent writing, if not a little slow.
This story was a good story rich in history, which I liked. I liked how the story went from Cornwall to Jersey so that I got the sense of movement through time with the movement of setting. My only issue with the story were some of the motivations of the characters seeming unrealistic which because the author was so persistent in pointing such motivations out so vividly, I could not overlook.
The narrator was just okay. For me, her voice was too deep and slow when narrating, however, for some of the characters that she portrayed, she was able to give a lilt and a quicker pace to her voice which I liked better. That said, she told the story well and gave distinct voice from one character to another well enough.
First off I loved the narration. She captured the individual voices well and drew me in the the whole story. It's a story about different aspects of love as well as forgiveness. I found it's simplicity satisfying from beginning to end.
I enjoyed the story very much but I found the narrator's pace too slow a lot of the time and weak on male voices. Otherwise on the female voices, very pleasant.
It wasn’t what i thought it would be and didn’t keep my interest enough to continue. Maybe it better as it went on.
Good Story. Lots of detail. Loved the ending.
I persevered to the end. It wasn’t my cup of tea. The narrator was u favorable to my ear, mostly the male voices were too similar, slow, and monotone. The story was okay.
This story was a thrilling tale. Never knowing if they will make it or not. The narrator was great and brought the characters to life. Thanks for the fun dive into this story.
This was a great story. I loved the characters. I wasn't sure about the setting and time period, but I found I enjoyed it and could imagine each character and the role they had!
Elizabeth Jasicki did a great job narrating.
