Elizabeth Camden's inspirational fiction takes listeners on an unparalleled emotional journey.
In The Rose of Winslow Street, Libby Sawyer and her father return from summer vacation to find another family living in their home. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family all the way from Romania to stake a decades-old claim on their house, and he has no plans to leave. As a contentious legal battle drags on, Libby finds herself drawn to Michael and his mysterious past. But she'll soon have to choose between her family and a man with decidedly unclear intentions.

I don't usually write reviews but this book was so beautiful I had to share. Not only was the story great the narration was wonderful Barbara Rosenblat is one of my fav narrators but she out did herself on this book she made the characters come alive for me. The story made me cry and Barbara made it real. I love romance novels and don't get me wrong I do like a little trashy sex scenes sometimes but this story just didn't need it. I loved it! Buy it! Worth your credit ? Yes!

BRAVO, Elizabeth Camden!
Story very interesting. Feel you are "in the time" , and the dialog and thinking reflect those years and those living them. Enough controversy to peak interest in final resolution and enough curiosity to wonder if the outcome would be satisfying. It is!
"Slow starting but worth it!"
Enjoyed the story but almost quit because of the slow start and being lost. Other reviews kept me going and I'm glad I did! Loved it!
"You will enjoy this book"
Great read. Some places in the book should have been expanded but the book was enjoyable. The main character (Libby) eventually got a backbone to stand up to her father with the help of Michael (the other main character). Romance, intrigue/mystery. Finished the book in a day.
"Heartwarming with Great Narration"
One of the best books I've read. I felt as if I was there feeling all the characters were experiencing. Details were presented so that I could imagine the sights and sounds. Will be reading again!
"Good story but didn't care for narrator's voice"
I love Elizabeth Camden's writing and this story was good. I simply didn't care for the narrator's voice. Had listened to another book she narrated earlier this year. However, Elizabeth Camden is still among my favorite authors of historical fiction.
"A Wonderful Story"
a thousand times. You learn about perfume, nature, immigrants and life in America. And the characters are fascinating.
Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden of course and any of Tamera Alexander's books.
All her Romanian and American accents are very good. Michael and Libby are such interesting characters.
Amusing and tragic.
