Excellent

(5 Sterne)

This is a wonderfully twisty-turny story with loads of interesting characters and connections. The reading itself is perfection.

Scoundrels Indeed!

(3,5 Sterne)

At 1st I almost stopped thinking it would concentrate on seamen but it doesn't. It focuses on how selfish & evil people can be. There are many characters, almost too many. Once you get them down you'll see the big picture. While the sociopathic character is disturbing it was an interesting story with some suspense. While the reader does have a Boston accent it's not thick so you'll get used to it. She does a great job.

I loved the story. The reading was absolutely excellent, best I've heard so far!

Loved it!!!!!

Great book & Great reader!

Just Ok

(2,5 Sterne)

While the reader is good, the story is just meh. It's full of diabolical scheming and crime that goes mostly unpunished with a hefty dose of coincidence and misunderstanding leading to totally preventable sorrow and suffering - Victorian sensation at its finest I suppose. But because we know a happy ending is all but inevitable, for most of the book I was impatient to "get through" the mire that especially in some places dragged on forever. The Eversleigh and Dale men are certainly a stupid race, and Douglas Dale's asinine accusation against his fiancé was the worst - a complete rehashing of Sir Oswald's credulity in the early chapters. It was painful. I was much more interested in Andrew Larkspur, and a book about his adventurous private detective work a la Mr. Holmes of a later period would have been a better choice of subject matter. I've seen mostly positive reviews from others, though, so if you're open to enjoy the ride of suspense to a foregone conclusion this could fit the bill. IMHO Lady Audley's Secret, The Doctor's Wife, and The Lovells of Arden were much more enjoyable.

Lengthly & tedious at times

(3 Sterne)

Well read but occassionally Bronx accent was jarring. So me have said a Boston accent. Either way it on occasion did not fit with the setting and time. Very twisted and convoluted storyline. I had to make an effort to keep up especially with who the different characters were. I must have fallen asleep when the subject of who her real mother was at the end I couldn't face it together! I was relieved when story ended finally.

Run to Earth

(4,5 Sterne)

I thought the novel was actually too long and the plots and sub-plots too many, but it was interesting and it kept my attention regardless. I give it four stars. The reader, Gail Mattern, on the other hand, was great. This is the first book I have heard which she has narrated, and it is my hope she reads many more. Nice and clear voice and excellent diction. The reader gets five stars. Thank you. : ) Eli G

Beautifully crafted

(5 Sterne)

Mary Elizabeth does it again,creativily weavinga wonderful tale .loved this book,my best from her so far so many twist and turns and lives criss crossing.. Lady Everslegh is to be admired for strength of character and persevierence...Sad and shocking how Victor and Reginard really go to such great length to bring misery to others,just to get their way but in the end gain nothing
