Wild Mountain Thyme - Rosamunde Pilcher I read this as an abridged audiobook and though the writing was very lyrical the heroine started out as a spineless ninny easily wooed with pretty words and heated glances. I found myself screaming at thin air "don't fall for it!" "don't do it" but, darn, she went and gave up her life for a bearded, selfish, thoughtless nincompoop.

This book was read by Kate Burton who does a beautiful job with the Irish brogue and made listening to the story a real pleasure. I continued to have "issues" with the book heroine, Victoria, but I tend to prefer stronger heroines and Victoria was way too passive for my taste. Her innocence and kind-hearted acceptance of Oliver's horrendous behavior and attitude annoyed the heck out of me. It was somewhat understandable considering her need for love and connection but annoying all the same.
