Summary

May Wedderburn is a quiet provincial girl, living in small and seemingly boring Skernford. Underneath the dull exterior, there is mystery, suspicion and fear in this little town, surrounding the austere local wealthy landowner who is very interested in marrying poor May. It looks as though she will have to marry him whether she likes it or not until an unsuspected alliance is formed between her and a respected old lady. They both escape to Germany where music and excitement await them.

Reviews

The story is good, the unknown reader needs to identify herself; she's that good!! Please identify yourself so I can find anything else you may have done. BTW, your knowledge of German is commendable.

- Good but ....simple

I had to look up to see when this author was born, because the writing style was close to what many period romantic authors of today write in. I felt almost at the times the piece was OVER romanticized and didn't hold a good speck of reality to it. The wording was simple, and it could prove to be an easy read. It was definitely an easy listen, but to be honest, I was not impressed with the blah-se ending.

The reader brings this tale to vivid life. A most excellent read from a reader who's too humble to give her name. From this mystery reader I would listen to anything...
