(1 stars)

A tragic tale of ill-fated love. I don’t think it belongs in the Christian fiction section. The writer believes in “divine providence” but not, apparently, in salvation through Christ.

God Bless You Michele

(5 stars)

May God bless you Michelle for your reading of this interesting and romantic work. Michele has shown a great gift and that is the gift of love and the gift of giving so much to others by reading this book. The time she (and all readers) at librivox give to the reading of any work to those of us who only have to listen and enjoy is a gift of love from the reader who gave of herself, and of her time for the benefit of others. The book was very interesting to any one who has a romantic nature or heart that is open to what God has given to probably all of His children, and that is the gift of love which we find as we listen to Michele read so well. As I say I probably make little sense in my review here but I can only say that I believe God will bless Michele and all of those who give of themselves as she has done. May God bless, Michele Eaton, and all other readers of these works one of which her reading has given for the enjoyment and benefit of others. May God Bless her and the Librivox project and I pray that it will be used by many others for their benefit and the wisdom to be gained from just listening. Thank you again Michele and I sincerely believe God will bless you for your work here.

beautiful story! my heart is sad and torn! although some of the events are quite predictable however I he writing style present it in an enjoyable way. I wished that it ended differently by some miracle Beatrice would be alive but it is not called a tragic story for nothing... my taste in stories and book is so difficult and I am a picky reader hard to be pleased. and thus story is one of the greatest I have read now or listen to I recommend it very much I like they way he described the suicidal thoughts of Beatrice how accurate and well written especially how he feelings at the moment and how they were present in the Tale

OMG, what a ride

(5 stars)

beautiful and elegantly written; read fantastically. the pace of the story was perfect, and a well layed out plot of the honorable longing of two hearts out of time with each other. Such a miserable ending for all involved but I loved the story all the same...

Just not interested

(2 stars)

Six chapters in and still no real plot. I assume it is just a drama or maybe a love story eventually develops. I can't listen anymore.

Intense Tragic Love Story

Couldn’t put the book down as I could hardly wait to see what happens. Highly recommend and the narration is excellent.

A sad story, but wonderfully woven by a master story teller. Good job by the narrator. Well worth a listen.
