Publisher's Summary

Megan thought she had it all - a good job, a caring family and a fiancé whom everyone agreed would make her a wonderful husband.

But then her perfectly constructed world fell apart, and she found that her one hope was Professor Jake van Belfeld. He seemed determined to rebuild her life - but why was he taking such a personal interest in her? He couldn't think that her heart needed his attention, too, could he?

    "Hope after heartache"

    Narrator's voice was cozy and her depiction of the characters was warm, however I couldn't seem to shake of the sense of the hero being elderly. I've read the book in print and didn't have that problem. Also, there's an incident in the book right near the end that is just too far-fetched for me, but oh, well. I'm a Betty Neels fan and will listen to this book again anyway. This is the first Neels book I've found on Audible, and I hope there will be more, especially if they vary the narrators.

    "Enjoyable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Quiet Professor to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio edition adds to my enjoyment of the story because I can hear accents of the various characters which I just cannot add in my mind as I read it. It's not better than the print version, but it adds another dimension. I would love to find more Betty Neels stories in audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, I think it would have to be the Quiet Professor, Jake van Belfield. He is just so solid, reliable, large and good looking and determined to have his own way. He doesn't force Megan to do to anything she doesn't want to do, but he just manages to convince her that his quietly suggested ideas really would be for the best. The reader believes that if she decided not to go along with him, and he thought she wouldn't budge, he would accept her decision. She just seems to know that he is right about how to get over her "cracked" heart.


    What about Anne Cater’s performance did you like?

    I love her voice, her pacing of the narration, her manner of acting each character so you know who is talking by the way she changes accent, pitch, pronunciation and so on. She's a wonderful reader and actress.


    If you could rename The Quiet Professor, what would you call it?

    I cannot imagine.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to more of Betty Neels novels in audio edition. I hope I don't have long to wait.
