ALL the stories were entertaining. If you like westerns, there's no better story-teller ever lived than Louis L'Amour. Lance Axt narrated all the stories and gave a stellar performance.
I read these stories years ago, but enjoyed listening to them even more. I'm sure I will listen to them again. A book has to be exceptional for me to listen to it twice. The really good ones I may listen to several times. Sadly, most books I buy are not worthy of listening to more than once.
I never tire of Louis L'Amour westerns. I was happy to get it on the $4.95 special.
At first I wondered if a book less than 4 hours long would be worth a credit, but I was unfamiliar with the author and wanted to judge for myself....and I can tell you, with a resounding YES, it was well worth the credit.
Be sure to have a box of tissue handy when listening to Abby: Mail Order Bride, you'll need it.
Verna Clay is a very talented author, and I hope Audible will be adding her next book in this series, as well as other books by Ms. Clay.
Although Amy Gramour's voice is rather monotone, it is pleasant and did not distract from this touching, true to life story about a Mail Order Bride from the East traveling to Texas to care for a family of four who had lost their wife and mother the year before.
I recommend it all soft-hearted romantics.
A taste of L'Amour's versatility:
RED BUTTE SHOWDOWN - About the old west!
A FRIEND OF A HERO = Modern-day crime story!
WINGS OVER BRAZIL - Captian Pango Jim Mayo, during WWll
THE GHOST FIGHT - Story about a ghost boxer!
Well performed by John Bedford Lloyd:
