The Rosary

(4.5 stars; 30 reviews)

"The Rosary" is a beautiful love story. Gareth Dalmain falls in love with the Honorable Jane Champion. She loves him back, but does not trust his love, as is known to be a great lover of beauty, and she - alas - is very plain. Just as she decides to trust him, she receives news that he has been blinded in a hunting accident. She wants to go visit him, but he will not receive her, as he wants only her love - not her pity. With the help of their mutual friend and doctor, she gets the position as his nurse under a presumed name, and thereby gets to know the 'new' Gareth. (Summary by Maria Elmvang) (10 hr 50 min)

A wonderful read!

(4.5 stars)

This book is very interesting & has good lessons for life. There are a few volunteer voices that take away from the beauty of the reading tho. Please use volunteers that know English well & know how to pronounce words. That was my only complaint.

Beautiful Romance

(5 stars)

A beautiful love story that is well written and captivating. It makes your heart break, rejoice and palpitate throughout the course of the story. Some of the readers did a wonderful job but the heavily accented ones were hard to understand, so I had to reread it in my copy of the book. That defeats the purpose of an audio book. That's my only complaint.

A love story

(5 stars)

A love story for the time it was written. It is simple and the characters are not to complex, but I still enjoyed it. This is also read by real people and not a computer, so I am grateful for all the readers for their time. Thank you to all of them.

(5 stars)

Oh how I enjoyed this story! A new favorite author to add to my collection. Thank you to every wonderful reader who spent their time reading this for others to enjoy, I’m so grateful to every single one of you!


(3 stars)

Didn't really enjoy or finish the story. Am a Christian but not more appealing for that. Maria's accent is not conducive to easy listening unfortunately.

Wonderful Sweet Story

(5 stars)

This was a wonderful story and well read by all who contributed. Highly recommend this one.

Christian Readers

(5 stars)

Christian Readers will especially enjoy the recitation of beautiful hymns and the faith of the characters.

why would anyone try to read a book when they don't know the lan
