They include Roxton's last letter to Antonia.

She does it again!

Lucinda Brant has done it again! I absolutely love the Roxton series and am so happy there is a continuation of my favorites character's stories. Eternally Yours, narrated by the amazingly talented Alex Wyndham, lets listeners in to private conversations between the Duke of Roxton and his lover, as well as some other characters. This is such a neat way to go back and hear snipbits about the history. This story will give you all the feels!! And my favorite part? The introduction "written" by a family member much further down the generations! Wonderful!

Give me more!

Loved this compilation of letters that fills in the blanks in the Roxton series. Loved the ones especially from the Duke (Monsigneur). Such a great series, I hope there will be more like this, especially wonderful with Alex Wyndham narrating! He captures the tone of this series so well!

I was tearing up in the car

Would you listen to Eternally Yours: Roxton Letters Volume One again? Why?

Yes. They're very well written.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Duke - he's a great husband

What does Alex Wyndham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has the dreamiest voice, and does a wonderful job of differentiating characters. I even checked to see if there might be a YouTube of him reading a phone book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The various love letters were very moving, especially the Duke's on his deathbed. It did make me tear up while I was driving.

Any additional comments?

I've enjoyed the whole series, and recommended them to my sisters. They do a great job of pulling you into their time and situation. I enjoyed revisiting the characters I had come to know in the earlier books.

Wonderful, Wonderful Audiobook

Where does Eternally Yours: Roxton Letters Volume One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is actually the very first audiobook that I have ever listened to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Eternally Yours: Roxton Letters Volume One?

I so enjoyed listening to Alex Wyndham's expressive and appealing voice. He made each character come to life and I could actually picture them in my mind. He made me cry when La Duke of Roxton wrote his final letter to his beloved Antiona. Alex's expressive voice brought this beautiful audiobook come to life even though I had previously read the ebook.

Have you listened to any of Alex Wyndham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me botch laugh and cry.

Alex Wyndham always does a great job performing these books.

Not to be Ignored!

The letters were astounding as an audiobook, especially with the elegant sound of Alex Wyndham's voice. You must read or listen to the first three books in the series, to get the full effect of the sentiment contained in this "Eternally Yours" novella. I enjoyed every moment and was left waiting for more at the end. It was as if you were looking into the personal life of dear friends. I found myself laughing out loud and in the next moment crying at the tenderness of words, that the 5th Duke de Roxton spoke to his Duchess (Antonia). Wow. I was deeply touched. Hard to believe these people aren't real, that's how gripping the words of friendship and love impact the listener. I salute Ms. Brant. She outdid herself in writing the letters. Thanks Audible.

Brilliant Writing and Narration

Any additional comments?

I’m so happy I listened to this companion of books one through three before continuing the Roxton Family saga in book four. Not only did it refresh my memory of the stories, but added an additional layer of understanding behind the events.  It also allowed me to remember with fondness their stories:

I didn’t think listening to narrated letters would elicit such emotion from me.  Many a time, while listening, the feelings of deep emotion would set the tears to falling, not small tears, mind you, but bit tears which certainly would have stopped me reading if I had been reading, not listening.  Narrator is superb in his craft, there is no doubt.

Then there were the times when Antoine as a young girl wrote to the Duke, hoping to have a letter in return.  These were quite silly and would have captured any hardened duke-ish heart, bringing smiles to my own. Narrator Alex Wyndham heightened the experience with narration par excellence, as he has done throughout the series. 

These letters were so realistically, I had to pose a question to the author.  The book mentions the foreword written by a late-Victorian descendant, Alice-Victoria, 10th.   I then Googled this person and found none.  With this unanswered question, I asked author Lucinda Brant if the Roxton family is in any way tied to specific persons in history.

The many letters within this book of 170 pages were mentioned in the first three books of the saga.  As you know, during that time letters were very important to people.  Travelling was difficult, so they resorted to lots of letter writing. The author decided, and I must say it’s brilliant, to write these said letters, allowing the reader to gain better understanding of the deeper emotions and frame of mind of the characters.

The descendant, the 10th Duchess of the Roxton's, also from the imagination of the author add even more to these letters.  Brant made her so realistic I had to find out if she were real.  Brant also states she may write a book set around the time of this Duchess, living during the 1890s.  Whatever time period this author writes in, her eloquent style, and descriptive scenes captivate and enthrall the reader or listener.

Once book six is written, she will write volume II of another set of letters.  I have just finished listening to Proud Mary, book four of the saga. I continue to be mesmerized with the saga.

The Letters

I listened to this audio book after I had finished the series. I'm not sure when it's truly suggested to read it, but for me, after all the others suited me best. Wonderful narration as with the others... Alex Wyndham is truly gifted as a story teller. To me, this book pulls the others all together, or I guess it could be a brief overview. Lucinda Brant never disappoints!

Good but wanted more

Alex Wyndham does one fine job of it like always. Fun listening, refreshes the memory of the books. It's kind of a resumé. But...
I was hoping to learn more on the family and it did not.
