    Ann Redfield is destined to follow her brother Jesse through life - two years behind him - all the way. Jesse is a conductor on the Underground Railroad, and Ann follows him there as well. Quakers filled with a conviction as hard as Pennsylvania limestone that slavery is an abomination to be resisted with any means available, the Redfield brother and sister lie, sneak, masquerade, and defy their way past would-be enforcers of the hated Fugitive Slave Law.

    Story

    I had to read this story for my monthly book club meeting. And I immediately disliked the monotoned narrator. The deep timber of her voice just doesn't seem to be flexible enough to differentiate the characters. It was only because of my book club members raving about the story itself that I braved the story again. I eventually got caught up in the plot of slavery, love, right and wrong and even found myself on the edge of my seat. The book is great. Tells a tale from a side of slavery not told often. I won't say don't buy this book because I liked it in the end...BUT...I will tell you to hear the sample first.

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

    I've officially been taught a lesson about buying a book with a narrator Im not familiar with. I am a huge Nora Roberts fan and this book doesn't disappoint but for me this reader was a whispery, breathy, sultry mess!!! Lord I had a hard time trying to get past her voice. Please listen to the sample to make sure the readers voice doesn't irk you.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Story

    Im only writing this to give another opinion of the narrator in this story. I enjoyed her immensely. Im African American and I can't say that I am strong in the do's and dont's of Irish accents but I enjoyed this story and Katherine's narration. I was caught up during the magical excitement and her rise in voice was timely. She has a strong voice and I could tell which character was which. Keep doing what your doing Nora. I can't wait for the next two episodes and I hope you keep the same narrator. There is nothing worse than having to switch narrators during the middle of a series.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Story

    I will admit that I was a bit leery about this book as its not exactly my typical read. But I trusted all of the great reviews I read. I feel like I am the one reading the letters and that I am watching the book unfold. The author has mastered describing Guernsey and its inhabitants. This book was light in part and heavy in others and overall it was a great read. I read while at work!

    Enjoy..

    Now that the series is over what will I do? I have enjoyed the series very much. Not every book was perfect in every way but I am not sorry that I bought every episode and listened to them all. Johanna Parker, you are amazing. You had a lot of characters to bring to life and you did an amazing job. I will move on to your other readings next.

    Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee - and into her new life at Harper House and In the Garden nursery. She isn't intimidated by the house - nor its mistress, local legend Roz Harper.

    This book is a hoot! The home sounds comfortable, open and inviting...even with a ghost. The characters are real aren't they? The narrator brings each one of them to life and I'm almost jealous that I don't have that southern drawl...it sounds so cool.

    I chose this because of the good reviews by others. They were not wrong. Try it...

    Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn't slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco's most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department's evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer - even her closest friends. Lindsay is called next to the most bizarre crime scene she's ever seen: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor....

    Story

    I hate it when audio books change narrators in the middle of a series. Now you have to meet strangers trying to take the place of your old friends. The story was very good but the story teller just didn't fit. Or maybe I just didn't want her too. (Shrugs). Good book though...

    Eloise Foley, known to her friends as Weezie, has been through the divorce from hell. Her ex-husband Tal (aka Talmadge Evans III) was awarded their house in Savannah's historic district, the house that Weezie had spent years painstakingly restoring to its original splendor. Weezie was awarded the two-bedroom carriage house on the same property. Each was sure the other would sell. But Tal has taken up residence in the main house with his new girlfriend Caroline DeSantos.

    Genuine phrases that only Susan Ericksen can deliver. Very interesting and vivid details about everything. I could see the antique china patterns and smell the Four Roses that her mom drank like iced tea.

    Just a wonderful read and very entertaining. I want to visit Savannah now and also look for Antiques. After reading this book I know that I don't know enough about either one. This was my first Mary K. Andrews book but it won't be my last.
