Reviews

Barbara in Brittany


(3.5 stars)

A rather cute story read capably by Sibella ( forgot her last name). One of the things I enjoy about LibriVox is discovering different readers and seeing the books they've chosen to read.

wit and twists


(3.5 stars)

The underlined humor and mystery paired with the glimpses into history based writing makes this book attention gripping. I enjoyed this very much! Thank you to the reader for selecting this story!

The reader was great ,but the book was not what I expected,i was waiting for some romance since it was supposed to be a romance book,but I didn't see any of it.
