Description

In the heyday of the British Raj, Anahita becomes Princess Indira’s official companion, and accompanies her to England just before the outbreak of the Great War. There, she meets the young Donald Astbury – reluctant heir to a magnificent, estate – and his scheming mother. Eighty years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet. Her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, takes her to the now-crumbling Astbury Hall…

Historical romance at It's BEST !!!!

What did you love best about The Midnight Rose?

I love the format of "then" (1918) and now and how gracefully Lucinda Riley's words dance between the two separate time periods. Midnight Rose provides a perfect balance of historical facts mixed in with a heavy dose of romance !!!!!!!!!!

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

She has a wide range of charater voices and does of perfect job bouncing between the tight repressed voices of the Brits and the emotionally abadoned voices of the indian characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any additional comments?

How long to we have to wait for the next Lucinda Riley book ???

She is on my list of FAV's !!!!!!!!!!!

A Great Story with a Superb Performance!

Loved this story for the obvious reasons...romance, history, past vs. present...it's all there. In my humble opinion, this is the perfect recipe for a great AUDIObook: lots of great stories out there, but the narrator makes this awesome! (So many narrators today are annoying and just plain bad! They over-enunciate and are flat and boring.) Ms. Srinivasan really brings this to life.

Really loved this one

One of those long and winding story lines that you can't wait to get back to. I recently read a few books where at halfway I figured out the end and was just annoyed it took the characters so long to figure it out This one kept you guessing up to the end. I totally loved the very end, so much so I am writing this review. Narration was wonderful. Anjana. Srinivasan had it all, between the accents and inflections I always knew who was speaking.

Brilliant Narration + Excellent Story = Deeply Satisfying

Great audiobook. Terrific story. Lucinda Riley never disappoints. Her multi-layered stories are rife with characters that you can't help but forge a bond with as you traverse two time settings. The Midnight Rose is an excellent tale that's compelling-it pulls you in never lets go. Twists and turns will make your heart both ache and soar. The true star in this audiobook is the narrator Anjana Srinvasan. She is the single best audiobook narrator I've come across after years of listening. The ability to not only act the book out like a fine actress, she gives each character a true voice and can flip from an Indian accent, British accent, and American accent with the greatest of ease. Bravo Ms. Srinvasan, I'll be looking out for books you narrate, you truly offer an 'experience'. Highly recommend.

A little hoaky, But I Stayed Up listening!

At times the story reminded me of a Lifetime movie. However, I found myself staying up to listen. Not quite as good as a Kate Morton's book, but I would still recommend it for light reading.

Horrible American accents

What did you love best about The Midnight Rose?

The story is excellent.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anjana Srinivasan?

I have no idea but the way she did an American accent was absolutely maddening. Americans do say "t." It doesn't disappear completely from words. We wouldn't say AN-dnee for Antony ffs. The rest of the narration was ok. Some of the British accent was sorta messed up, especially the housekeeper, but it wasn't nearly as grating as Rebecca's accent. It almost ruined the book for me.
