Summary

Best-selling author of Vows and The Gamble and winner of the Golden Medallion for Best Historical Romance awarded by the Romance Writers of America, LaVyrle Spencer now tells the story of a man and a woman drawn together by fortune, kept together by destiny and finally the unlikely winners at a rich, surprising passion.

Elly Dinsmore, widowed mother, considered an eccentric in her sleepy Southern town is shy and fearful, yet oddly beautiful and spirited. Will Parker, a lanky and laconic drifter, has survived a loveless childhood and betrayal by everyone he ever trusted. Together, these two must face the greatest challenge they've ever known to free Will from the shadow of a crime he didn't commit. Together, they learn that to win at love, first you must risk your heart.

Did not realize it was abridged.

Any additional comments?

Love the original story, felt like the abridged version cut out good details and parts of the novel. In order to truly enjoy the novel, I would either just read it or wait for an unabridged version to come out. Not worth the money otherwise.

Why Abridged??? Horrible Male Character Voice

What would have made Morning Glory better?

The unabridged story like the original book. Believable male character voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All the characters are great but the male voice sounds like a woman...doesn't do justice to the male lead who is truly a heroic character with manly attributes but a feminine voice.

Would you be willing to try another one of Deborah Raffin’s performances?

No

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Great story line and great characters

Any additional comments?

Just a poor performance of the male lead voice and the abridged book leaves out a lot of what makes this a great story. Very disappointed. Truly a book to be read many times but listening to this rendition is horrible even once. Sad reading of a great book.

Not the whole story

I read this paperback many years ago and was looking forward to the audiobook. Was greatly disappointed that this seems to be a condensed version of the original story. It's still a decent listen, but the full story is so much better.
