Reading Room: The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley - Audiobook
I had previously read The Winter Sea in paperback, and loved it. While working in the kitchen over the weekend, I browsed through the few audiobooks I've downloaded but never listened to, and found this one. It's a great book to begin with, and the audio version is just as enjoyable. At first I wasn't sure I liked the narrator, but she won me over. The accents are great and she enhanced, rather than overpowered, the story.
History has all but forgotten...
In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown.
Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.
But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her...
The Reading Room is where I share books, because authors are readers, too! I don't review books on my blog, not precisely, but I do like to share books I've read and enjoyed. I call it "sharing the book love." My tastes are eclectic, so expect to see everything from sweet, wholesome romance to edge-of-your-seat, sexy thrillers, and more in between.
