Highland Spring

Awesome fast paced story with unexpected possibilities involving future and past events. I like that the strong well developed characters were an extension of the previous trilogy. Brian J. Gill gives an excellent, 5 star performance as the audible narrator. His talent gave life to all the characters with his accurate and believable pronunciations and regional accents and voices for the varied characters. I have really enjoyed all of the boo k s in these connected series very much. Not only has Elizabeth Rose given us another amazing adventure, but Brian J. Gill gives an amazing audible performance. They really seem to make a excellent, coordinated team, to bring us an enjoyable listening experience.

Awesome Story

I was cheering for the good guys and could not wait for someone to give it to the bad guys! Lol. The only problem I did have was the detailed intimate parts. They were more than necessary. But the story and plot was so good.

A Woman of Strength, a Man of Understanding

Any additional comments?

A man who wishes to love again, to provide a woman’s love to his children. A woman, trained as a warrior, not knowing how to love. Brought together to wed -- an alliance of two clans. Both clans has issues of acceptance. Will peace take hold?

Spring has always been calmed by rubbing her talisman, a small wooden piece, knawed on as a child, and had since forever. Her father, part of the Gunn clan hardened her soul, making her one of his best warriors. She is an expert with a bow and arrow she found on a dead man, when only ten years old. Her life has been harsh, but she loves her two brothers. Her father has always said she and they were triplets, but his statement has always been speculative.

Now Spring is a pawn to capture her father’s enemy, the Gordon clan, to allow him access to take the keep. She’s been married to this man, a man who has three children. Changes occur. Spring softens. Love claims her. How can she betray her new family? How can she betray the family she’s had for 18 years? Is it possible she can keep them both safe?

I enjoyed the story with a definite edginess to it. Spring is put into a perilous situation. Her emotions and understanding of who she is develop the story and propel the plot forward. Love is a powerful force both Spring and Shaw Gordon yearn to experience.

A secondary character I gravitated to was the old woman who is a seer and has been with Shaw for as long as he remembers. She sees the present with several visions. She sees Summer is to go through several years of turmoil at the end of this story. She wishes to be with her and so Shaw gives his blessing to have her join Summer. (Secretly, he's happy to see her go. She sees more than he’s comfortable with.)

I enjoyed the way Spring finds herself, her inner strength even in times of uncertainty. She desire to be accepted by Shaw's children, for she's never truly felt she belonged anywhere.
Narrator Brian J. Gill is an excellent narrator, particularly when it comes to a Highland story. His deep voice and accented dialog make the story even more enjoyable.

great story with a strong women character

If you could sum up Highland Spring in three words, what would they be?

I won a copy of thisy. As soon as i got it downloaded i started listening to it and I couldn't stop until I was done. Spring is a women that is a true warrior and she learns that love can come when we are not looking for it and that true family excepts us for who we are. I loved this story and think that it had everything in it that made the story great. Love, hate, betrayal, family, hope and of course fighting for honor of family. If anyone is looking for a great book to get this one is a must read. Great Job Elizabeth Rose - Author I look forward to reading more

Highland Spring

I won this audiobook from Elizabeth Rose. I loved this audiobook. Brian J Gill really brought the characters to life. This is the story about Spring and Shaw. Spring was raised as a boy and the man who she thought was her father wanted her to marry Shaw so he could take over his castle. It was well written and had a great cast of characters, action packed suspense, secrets, lies, betrayal and love. I love all of Elizabeth Rose's books and audiobooks. I highly recommend her books.

Really Enjoyed!

I thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook! The plot was focused and very entertaining. You were drawn into the lives of the characters and Elizabeth Rose made you feel like you were back in the medieval times. I liked how she included the telling of the clans and battles along with the romance. It definitely was a romantic suspense audiobook. You had to cheer for Spring and her outcome! This can be listened to as a stand alone but I cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series! I really didn’t want to stop listening at night. I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. The narrator was great too! I will definitely be listening to her other audiobooks in this series and all her other series too. Enjoy!

Spring

This well-constructed complicated story follows Spring and those around her as she learns who she is, what she wants, and where she belongs. It is a tale of deceit and betrayal, of secrets and lies, and of discovery and love. The characters in this story are well developed, some new, and some already familiar. Spring and Shaw are great together. Gunn and his crew are strong, but that strength is evil, not honorable. The secondary characters flesh out the story. The children are instrumental in the changes we see in Spring as the story unfolds. Nairnie’s part in the story is essential and adds a little humor. There are twists, turns, and surprises all through the story, but the biggest and best is at the end. A superb job of narration by Brian J. Gill. Another great story from Elizabeth Rose.

Highland Spring

This is the first book of The Season’s of Fortitude book series. It was very good. The narration was excellent and he told the story with a sense of truth, as if it was real. Baby Spring was kidnapped with two other boy babies to make up the clan of an opposing clan. The leader of this clan stole the babies as his wife could not produce a child. The wife died when Spring was a small child so she had no remembrance of a Mother. The so say Father brought her up as a lad and they taught her to be a warrior. It was a perfect beginning of a series and her husband’s children learned to love her very quickly. I did not want to put it down. Thank You Miss Rose for writing this book. I am now looking forward to reading the next in the Season’s of Fortitude.
