Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of A Woman of Substance.

The story of two brilliant women and the men to whom they ransomed their hearts.

With her beauty, talent and allure, Katherine Tempest has the world at her feet. Her rise from unknown actress to Hollywood legend is one marked by dazzling performances and a carefully concealed yet undeniably ruthless determination to succeed.

But Katherine irrevocably changes the lives of her closest friends: two men who love her and the woman who trusts her implicitly. She never looks back until she needs the one thing they alone can give her - forgiveness.

Disappointing

What disappointed you about Voice of the Heart?

The story was not the page-turner I was expecting; it was boring and despite persisting, I still gave up half way through. I couldn't care about the characters and the narrator's voice was not easy to listen to. Not a great combination if the story doesn't grip you either.

lasted ten minutes

I can't comment on this book overall because I could only manage two chapters. Far too much detailed description of the main character's luxurious appartment and the narrator's voice was far too sickly-sweet for me.

Very disappointed with nararrator

I really enjoy Johanna Lyndsay books normally as it's very easy listening. However the person reading this book was very disappointing. The tone and lack of difference in the various characters was shocking. Compared to previous lyndsay books it was dire.
