Taken at the Flood


Read by Celine Major

(4.7 stars; 25 reviews)

Brought up by a parish schoolmaster with a hidden past, Sylvia Carew dreams of a future devoid of poverty. Will she be faithful to the man she adores or will she opt for the chance at wealth and position? What lengths will she go to and when all is said and done, will she be gratified with her "happily ever after"? Romance, ambition and greed, deceit and selfishness are at the root of this sensational Victorian novel by Braddon. As usual she manages to keep us in suspense until her well constructed surprise ending. - Summary by Celine Major (17 hr 59 min)

Reviews


(4.5 stars)

What a great story about the horrible choices people make. I tried so hard to have sympathy for the main character but nothing worked out the way I expected.


(2 stars)

the last half of the book the chapters were all mixed up and you were listening to two different chapters mixed together. It made the story very confusing.
