Summary

Aurora Floyd, the daughter of a rich banker and an actress, could not have had a better start: back from a finishing school in Paris, she is beautiful, clever and rich. Two men instantly fall in love with her. But when they discover that she have done something very wrong in her past, who will stand by her side? With a set of unforgettable characters, the author delivers to us what she calls "a domestic drama". This book asks some major questions: is it good to love someone even if they lied? Even if they were amoral and behaved very badly? Is it good to forgive everything? Those questions are timeless, and so is this book.

Reviews

estee

- Aurora Floyd

Good story I think it was interesting to the end. The dark secret was not found until toward the end of the story. I agree there was something wrong with the recording on ch 15. It was just a novel readers don't have to digest every word the writer described. Many readers but most of them were clearly read.

Don't know why such a big deal was made about chapter 15, after all it was only one chapter. What was most irritating to me was all the reading by Mr. "Ontario, Canada"! What a boring reader and what in-the-world is an IN SINES WIDOW. Come on, had he ever heard of and In sines widow?! He was saying ensign and if you don't know the word maybe you should look it up to know how it's pronounced!

chapters28 Chapters 28 & 29 unintellibible. Isn't there sound checks done? It's disappointing when one misses chapters due to poor recordings. Verbage common to time period.

An interesting book, although lomgwinded. Chapter 15 is almost unintelligible

Sugary romance and mysterious skullduggery among wealthy English land-owners. The story had enough twists to keep me listening, but not to every word. The author indulges in numerous lengthy descriptions and observations. A person could leave the room, make a chicken salad sandwich and return to find the story spinning on the same topic. The author makes frequent allusions to Shakespeare's Moor and obscure (to me) literary folks which I thought a bit tedious. Other than that, I enjoyed hearing about the times and people.

In chapter 15 there is something wrong with recording. Most words are unintelligible due to this. Otherwise the book is good.
