An unforgettable family saga which revolves around the beautiful young Elizabeth. Elizabeth is orphaned and raised by her spinster aunts. As an adult, she finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage and ultimately falls in love with another man. After telling her lover the truth about her marriage - her husband is found murdered the very next day! This is a story of destiny, temptation, and courage of the heart. (Summary by Lani Small) This book is sometimes attributed to Elizabeth von Arnim, but her authorship cannot be confirmed. There is no chapter four in this book, it seems to have been intentionally left out by the author. (10 hr 42 min)

(4 stars)

Good, if slightly predictable, book. Narrators ranged from excellent to 'much room for improvement'. One narrator actually read the wrong chapter. Fortunately, MOST of the chapters were read by very capable people thus the 4 stars.
