    Description

    From shipwreck and heartbreak to treachery and war: can their love survive?

    Abandoned as a baby and raised in a remote lighthouse off the wild Northumberland coast, Alice Fairchild has always dreamed of adventure. When a fierce storm wrecks a ship nearby, she risks everything in an act of bravery that alters the course of her life.

    Aboard the doomed vessel is the handsome John Sinclair, a Scottish soldier on his way to India. The connection between them is instant, but soon fate intervenes and leaves Alice heartbroken and alone. Determined to take charge of her destiny but secretly hoping her path will cross again with John’s, she too makes a new start in colonial India.

    Life there is colorful and exotic, but beneath the bright facade is an undercurrent of violence, and when the British invade Afghanistan, Alice is caught up in the dangerous campaign. When at last she hears news of John, she is torn between two very different lives. But will she follow her head or her heart?

    Might be more enjoyable with a different narrator.

    The story was ok but I couldn't get past the narrator ready each sentence like she was checking off a grocery list. There was no fluidity to the narration. She made each sentence feel like it was standing alone from the rest.

    Excellent story but

    was it narrated by a person or a robot? While the speaking parts were natural, the narration inflection was highly repetitive…very annoying.
    The story itself was very engaging!

    Narrator ruined it for me

    I absolutely loved the narrator for the first two books in this series. But this narrator was so horrible that I couldn’t stand to listen and actually had to return the book. The narrator voiced the characters very well but the rest of the narration was read like she was reading from a shopping list and with zero emotion. I will have to read it on my Kindle instead. I’m surprised they allowed this recording to pass muster.

    How did the narrator get hired?

    I tried. I really did. The narrator is terrible. Horrible. Has no grasp on how people talk. Cannot read aloud. She treats every punctuation mark like a period and speaks in a song song. It’s so so bad.

    I like this author, but I can’t listen to this any longer. It’s actually sometimes hard to understand sometimes, based on her lack of understanding of punctuation functions. Otherwise, it’s just too annoying.

    Review of Dar Pashmina Mountains

    Great story but the narrator’s song song-y voice drove me crazy. She was very good with the accents, however.

    Good story, irritating narration

    The story was a good one, overly steeped in gory detail of the war in Afghanistan during the age of Akbar. The narrator had a flat tone except for a few of the characters, making it difficult to continue listening at times. The happy times were truncated and the sad times painfully protracted.

    I love this author

    All 8 books that I have listened to by her are amazing. I am SO sad that there are no more for me to listen to by her.

    Wonderful story of lost, found, lost again, found again love

    The story was captivating. Fictional story set against historical facts. The narration was good, however I did not like the way the narrative bits of the story were read like a check list with the same pattern throughout the book. Kinda sounded like it was the direction given to the narrator. The dialogue was more animated. Overall, it did not deter me from listening to the entire book.

    Frustrating Indian/uk historical fiction

    Although much of this novel was based on real characters, the two main ones were fictional. The British/Indian/ historical era of the late 19th century was interesting,. However, the main characters’ chances for happiness were thwarted so many times it made the novel rather ponderous. Good narration, just a bit sluggish and complicated as a novel.
