Publisher's Summary

It's the early 1700s and sixteen-year-old Julia Farrow, spirited daughter of a shipping company owner, lives and loves on her own terms. With a sharp mind and sharper tongue, she constantly defies family and society expectations with no regard for the consequences.

Branna Kelly, only child of an Irish immigrant sailor, is hopelessly in love with Julia and imagines their life together as captains of their own fate. Left brokenhearted after Julia's rejection, she embarks on a journey to chart a new shipping route to the Caribbean. Before Julia can explain her decision, Branna's ship is overrun by merciless pirates. All hands are presumed lost.

Fifteen years later, Julia is running the Farrow Company and sailing with the crew on her newest ship when an encounter with pirates leaves her the lone survivor to be rescued by the infamous Raven, hard-hearted captain of the mercenary ship, Banshee. Julia is shocked to discover her rescuer wears a familiar face.

The Raven and the Banshee is a passionate tale of vengeance, forgiveness, and second chance love in a swashbuckling adventure on the high seas.

Contains mature themes.

Annoying narration ruined it for me

I’m not usually really picky about narration, but I just could NOT get past this one. She does great voices, but the actual narration was slow and singsong-y in a way definitely not suited for the type of action packed story this is. And she had a habit of adding a “th” sound at the end of every sentence. It was all tragically too distracting for me to enjoy the story which otherwise would have been really great. I’m going to have to read it silently or wait for a new narrator. Moral of the story: great voice acting does not translate to good narration.

Worst narration ever

5 min was all I could handle of the sing-song and compleyely unnatural tonation.

Nice choice

I’ve grown accustomed to a another extraordinary performer being associated with several other Carolyn Elizabeth’s books. I must say Mary Sarah did a phenomenal job with Bran, Julia and all the other side characters. Very enjoyable listen, loved the book when I read it and I’m certain this audio will get several replays.
