Dreadful

Apart from the narrator, whose accent got nowhere near Scotland but drifted to New York Irish and back, the storyline was weak with the women inadequately drawn and the male characters unbelievable. I would suggest that the writer do some research and she will discover that Gaelic was the spoken and written language in the Highlands at that time and that no one would have understood a word her American characters were speaking.

Child Like Storytelling

Very immature writing and no depth to the actual story, very basic . Could also do with a load more research into historical Scotland and what things were like in that error, not bringing things from the 20th century into the 17th century. The narration was also not great, there was no consistency with the accents.
This could be so much better if even a bit more elaboration went into the story.
Very disappointed I wasted a credit on this.

Not what I expected

I guess after being a fan of the Outlander series, my expectations were a little high. The quality of the dialogue, the predictability of each happy ending, it was just like a fairy tale written for teenagers.

Don't bother

Narrator can't do the Scottish ascent. It sounded more Irish. Story line is juvenile with poor characters.

More Please

Such an enjoyable set of stories and endearing cast of characters. Most enjoyably being able to seamlessly travel from one escapade to another without encumbrance. Knowing the rest of the series is available as a boxset only heightens my desire to experience the remaining trists of Morna's Legacy in the same manner as I did the first, only the audible companion does not yet exist, so I must reiterate my above sentiment: MORE PLEASE...

Hard to finish.

Predictably written and terribly performance by the narrator. the accents were not authentic. I'd give it .5 stars if I could.

Not a fan.

There is absolutely no character development. The writing is bland and predictable. The love scenes seem like they've been written by a teenager. I feel like I wasted my credit this month.

Ehhhh, just okay...

This story borderlines on being a "trashy romance novel." Didn't need the graphic descriptions of romantic interludes. The storyline is predictable. The narrator wasn't very good. Not enough distinction between characters, and her "Scottish" accent frequently sounded more Irish than Scottish. I will not be purchasing the rest of the series.

Looking for an Outlander

Maybe it is my fault but the story was very predictable. Maybe because it is a love story. I won't say anything more in order not to insult anyone.

Entertaining

I enjoyed the books with the time travel and I liked how the author weaved in the three main characters throughout the three novels. I didn't think that there was enough story development and felt that part lacking. My favorites were the occasional phrase dropping of modern times and the reactions. I also wish the narrator did not make Adele sound like Marilyn Monroe.

Great Listen--Don't question it, buy it

I love the job of narrating Lily Collingwood has done for the stories in the box set of Morna's Legacy. I greatly enjoyed the stories for the presentation and the fun of it all. I hope there will be more to you Scottish Time Travel Romance series
