    Would you consider the audio edition of The Miner's Lady to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print


    What other book might you compare The Miner's Lady to and why?

    Quarryman's Bride


    Have you listened to any of Stina Nielsen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she is one of my favorite narrators! This performance was her best so far!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No ,in two sittings! Had I started it earlier in the day I would have fiished it the same day. It was hard to put down!


    Any additional comments?

    To me this was Tracie's award winning book, and I have read several. It makes me eager to read another one of her truly exciting , romantic and good Christian creations. Tracie, you are a truly gifted author!

    Would you try another book from Lauraine Snelling and/or Alexandra O'Karma?

    I usually like Lauraine Snelling's stories but this one did not keep me waiting for more.
    Alexandra O'Karma was very low keyed, melancholy, total lack of excitement in her voice. and spoke extremely slow so that I had to increase the speed on my kindle.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lauraine Snelling? Why or why not?

    Yes I already bought several books and am hoping the rest may be more exciting.

    Where does To Whisper Her Name rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    To Whisper Her Name has earned my Favorite's List. The book was exciting, romantic and held me captivated; albeit it was long , and I'm not complaining, I had to read it in segments!


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    Tavia Gilbert is by far the best narrator I have ever listened to. Her voice changes completely with each character.It's hard to believe this young lady can change her voice from a sweet young girl to a gruff General as quick as a blink of the eye.. She is absolutely unbelieveable!!


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very exciting and even funny at times.I try to read Tamera Alexander's novels because she has many delightful parts. I was somewhat disapointed with the ending, as it was just flat. I would have liked to see it prolonged a little farther rather than a quick cut off!

    Determined to tame her younger brother's rebellious streak, McKenna Ashford accepts her cousin's invitation to move west and to begin again. But she quickly discovers that life in Copper Creek, Colorado is far from what she expected. Shouldering burdens beyond her years, McKenna tries to be the parent Robert needs, instead of the older sister he resents. But an "untimely inheritance" challenges her resolve at every turn, while also offering a second chance to restore her trust--and perhaps even her heart.

    Tamera Alexander - RITA and Christy Award winner - interweaves threads of hope and second chances into a life tangled by half-truths and lies. Stepping off the train in 1876 Colorado Territory, Professor Molly Whitcomb, Ph.D, makes a distasteful choice she sees as her only chance to recover a fraction of what she's lost.

    Robin Miles is also #1 in narrators. She speaks every word clearly and distinctly. She has a wonderful gift of making each character their own,. when each one speaks you know right away who it is. I love her performance and will look for her other books she narrates.

    He's different from any man she's ever known. However, she's sworn never to risk her heart again. Brooke Baker, sold as a mail-order bride, looks to her future with dread but firm resolve. If she survived Uncle Jackson, she can survive anyone. When Sky Jordan hears that his nefarious cousin has sent for a mail-order bride, he knows he has to prevent the marriage. No woman deserves to be left to that fate. Still, he's as surprised as anyone to find himself standing next to her before the minister.

    What other book might you compare Rocky Mountain Oasis to and why?

    Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Johnston Brown’s performances?

    She kept over emphasized words that were not the correct pronunciation, i.e. didn't into did-dent. At first I believed she must be British, but after researching I found she was not. I continued to be distracted by this and couldn't keep my mind on the story. Most people do not talk like this, especially mountain people!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    British Mountaineers
