The fair Lady Julitta has a problem. She is not wealthy. She prizes her virginity. And her liege, whom she despises, is intent on rape. Red Adam is the lord of Brentborough castle - young, impetuous, scandalous, a 12th-century hell raiser. On one of his night of drunken revelry, he abducts Julitta. Though she fends him off, keeping her virginity, he has sullied her honor. Then to the astonishment of all, he marries her. Red Adam's Lady is a boisterous, bawdy tale of wild adventure, set against the constant dangers of medieval England.

This reading is beyond awful. An American who has no idea how to pronounce much, let alone anything in English. Especially colloquial / regional English. And she’s made zero effort to learn the historical terms - for a historical novel. She mostly seems to use some horrible fake American-cockney (which is inappropriate given it’s not set in London!). I have loved this story since I was a kid, and I’m not going to be able to finish listening to this. What a waste of money. Do Not Buy !! Get the kindle or paperback instead.
