Reviews

love FHB.....

(4 stars)

But, I have to admit, this story is more than a little overwrought. This seems like a classic case of a woman writer not being able to accurately draw a male character. The Duke is highly romanticized and if he is FHBs ideal, no wonder she divorced two husbands. It's still worth a listen, especially if you have heard of read the companion piece.

(4 stars)

A really great romance. I really liked and admired the protagonists, and found it interesting to see everything from Gerald's perspective after seeing Clo's. The reader was solid.

(5 stars)

Love the Francis Hogdson Burnett novels and the narration by Linda Andrus is superbly done. I will be listening to all books narrated by Linda.

Well Read

(4.5 stars)

Interesting perspective of the story. I would recommend Listening to A Lady of Quality First

Not what I expected, but very well read!
