Catherine and Edgar's loving relationship is warmly described against the mesmerizing sights and sounds of medieval Paris in this engrossing tale of mystery.

"Nadia May's voice truly captures the whirlwind excitement of life in Catherine LeVendeur's household in twelfth-century Paris....May is up to the challenge of Latin chapter introductions and the snarls of the nastiest villains." (AudioFile)
This is the first audiobook I have returned. This has little to do with the book itself - that's would probably be okay. It's the narrator - she literally gallops through the story. Very poor and very irritating! You might be better off to buy the book.
I love this series by Sharan Newman! I wish that the other books in the series were available as audiobooks!
"Wonderful medieval mystery"
Love listening to the foreign words spoken . She does a great job
This was my fourth time listening to this book. Love every minute every time I listen.
Just wish all of Newman's books were available in audio.
I do love the narrator, Nadia May. She does the most delightful French accent! These stories, while enjoyable, deal with the attitude of the "christian" towards the "jew". It is difficult to listen to some of the unbelievable things the christian faith said against the jewish faith. That was tough to listen to but also this mystery seemed to drag. I ended up skipping 3 cds in the middle.
That being said I enjoyed the beginning and the end!
