Summary
It is the early days of The Great War. As the curtain rises, Sara Lee is sitting by the fire in her aunt and uncle’s home, knitting a baby afghan. Her beau’s name is Harvey. He has his eye on a little house that is just perfect for two and he will soon propose to Sara Lee. But in this play, the mise en scène is about to change. A fairyland transformation will take place and Sara Lee will step into a new and different story, where she is the princess in a forest of adventure. There is a prince, too, whose name is Henri. He is as strange as the forest itself. And then just as suddenly, the scene changes back and Sara Lee is once again sitting alone by the fire, knitting socks for the soldiers this time, and with a memory and a new stirring in her heart. This is the story of Sara Lee’s amazing interlude.

I don’t know French, so the mispronouncing of French words didn’t bother me. I loved the soft voice of the narrator.

Excellent story and great characters. Very Austin-esque in the strong female lead. Wishing for an amazing interlude myself

I kept waiting for this book to start. It was very slow paced and not a lot of action. Very simple plot- no surprises. The narrator has a very calm voice that is relaxing to listen to but she should have done her research on how to pronounce Calais, salle-a-manger, quay and other worlds.

I enjoyed the book . It was well written, with a few mistakes.It was very descriptive, I could immerse myself in it. However, I was disappointed that the Narrator had not taken the trouble to find out correct pronunciation of some well known English and French landmarks Foe example, The Mersey River is Not Mercy River, Calais is not Callis. Ypres is not Yprès (ee-pray) ( the e is soft and the s is silent). What could have been a very interesting listen, became quite grating with the mis- pronunciations. Mary Ann has a good flow with her reading, able to portray different characters well, most of the time. It’s such a shame that the narration was spoiled by the mispronunciations. This should have been picked up in the proof reading and editing.

I really enjoyed this book. The only thing that slightly annoyed me was the narrator’s over-pronunciation of T’s. Silly, I know, but overall I enjoyed her reading, and the story itself was a wonderful historical romance.
