Publisher's Summary

Abandoned pregnant and penniless on the teeming streets of London, 16-year-old Amber St. Clare manages, by using her wits, beauty, and courage, to climb to the highest position a woman could achieve in Restoration England - that of favorite mistress of the Merry Monarch, Charles II. From whores and highwaymen to courtiers and noblemen, from events such as the Great Plague and the Fire of London to the intimate passions of ordinary - and extraordinary - men and women, Amber experiences it all. But throughout her trials and escapades, she remains, in her heart, true to the one man she really loves, the one man she can never have. Frequently compared to Gone with the Wind, Forever Amber is the other great historical romance, outselling every other American novel of the 1940s - despite being banned in Boston for its sheer sexiness. A book to listen to again and again, this edition brings back to print an unforgettable romance and a timeless masterpiece.

Wonderful memories from the 60s

Read this book in high school and enjoyed it so much. Pretty tame today lol. Enjoyed it again in audio after 50 years! Not my type of book anymore as a historical romance but the story and feeling of that era still fascinating. So happy publisher released this! Reader very good as well.

So excited to FINALLY have this as an audiobook!

I love this story (great characters and the real history events during Amber's life are well told with detail) and the narrator does a great job! I have been checking for about 2 years now in hopes of seeing this so when I checked this month and saw that it was here it was an immediate purchase!

42 Hours I’ll Never Get Back

The main female character whines endlessly throughout the whole 42 hours of the narration and has no self esteem or worth. The main male character takes advantage of her lack of self worth at every turn leading her on.

There are several story lines that never conclude and as the book ends, 42 hours later, you are left feeling empty and frustrated.
