Chris MacDonnell narrates most of this audiobook version of Blackmore's classic historical romance. MacDonnell takes on the persona of John Ridd, a young man who accidentally falls in love with Lorna, a member of the family responsible for the horrific murder of his father. MacDonnell's English accent lulls the listener as he delivers the novel's long sentences. Narrator Diana Croft portrays the few women who speak. Her occasional appearance as narrator can be jarring, especially when one has been mesmerized by MacDonnell's voice. This audiobook is extremely lengthy, and while the narrators are skilled, it's easy to lose oneself in other thoughts while trying to focus on its nineteenth-century literary style.
