What did you like most about Written in My Own Heart's Blood?
I have loved this series since book 1 and have both read and listened to it multiple times. Once again, Diana pulls us into the past drawing the listener into a time of romance and danger engaging us with her fabulous characters until we can't wait to hear what happens next.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Written in My Own Heart's Blood?
I loved every bit of this book. There are dramatic scenes, romantic senses, tearjerkers and belly laughs. I loved the weddings and cried at the funerals.
What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?
I think Davina Porter reads this book very well. She imbues each character with their own voice, so you know who is talking without the annoying habit some actors have of using funny voices to differentiate each one
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I half wanted to read this book in one go - simply not possible- and half didn't want it to end.
