The Black Robe is an 1881 novel. The book centers around the misadventures of Lewis Romayne. The church has lost out on a valuable piece of land through wars and transfers. Father Benwell is determined to reclaim that property by the conversion of the owner, Lewis Romayne. Enter beautiful Stella, who captures the heart of Romayne. Should Stella capture the love and devotion of Romayne, Father Benwell's scheme would fail, and that is something that he can not allow. Complicating things is the fact that both Romayne and Stella are hiding their own terrible secrets.

Ran Mattison. A story that pulls you into the characters lives. Some of the narrators are hard to understand, because of their accents.

not Wilkie Collins' best book, but it is a good listen. the story pulls you along and you can't help but stick with it. the narrator at the start and end was really good and I have to say I thought his accent added to the narrative really well (I don't even know if it was deliberate) however the change twice in the middle was a bit disconcerting... but I feel it might be a technical fault with the original reader's recording because otherwise the change in narrator is pointless. overall if like me you are a Wilkie Collins fan then listen you won't be disappointed

I have been listening to Wilkie Collins books a lot recently. This wasn’t one of my favorites by far, but still kept my attention. I feel like some of the narrators should master the English language a bit better before committing to read for an audience who doesn’t have the written word to follow along.
