    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.

    EJD has created a man's man with a heart and feelings. Gideon continues to kick ass and take names. The narrator does a great job as well.

    After being thought dead, Animal resurfaces on the streets of New York to keep true to his promise and make it rain blood over Harlem. All those who had wronged him would feel his wrath, including Shai Clark, boss of the New York underworld. But touching a man like Shai Clark proves easier said than done. Using Animal's soul mate, Gu­cci, as bait, Shai sets a trap for the young killer.

    You find it unbelievable that a killer can be painted as the good guy. But Kwan made it so. I was on the edge of my seat most of this book. The narrator is great. DONT CHANGE the story teller please.

    Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem. Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

    As a child, Hester Wyatt escaped slavery, but now the dark-skinned beauty is a member of Michigan's Underground Railroad, offering other runaways a chance at the freedom she has learned to love. When one of her fellow conductors brings her an injured man to hide, Hester doesn't hesitate...even after she is told about the price on his head. The man in question is known as the "Black Daniel," a vital member of the North's Underground Railroad network.

    Story

    Of all the books I've read Indigo is at the TOP of my lists. It's by far one of the best books I've ever read so when I saw that it now available in audio format I immediately purchased it. Hester and Galen's fight against slavery is one to be admired. The characters are very well developed and the feelings that blossom between the two are truly lifelong. Ms. Jenkins has a way of teaching you about history within the story and you never walk away after reading her books the way you started. She's still no. 1 in my book. And after having said all that I will say this...I hate this narrator! Lord why??? I almost cried when I heard her interpretation of Galen's voice. Her attempt of a french accent did not make it's mark. The rest of the voices were ok but her french accent has got to stop. (I feel awful for this by the way, I wanted it to be good SOOOOOOO bad).

    It's 1876 and Dr. Viveca Lancaster is frustrated by the limits placed upon female physicians of color. When she is offered the chance to set up a practice in the small all-black community of Grayson Grove, Michigan, she leaves her California home and heads east. The very determined Viveca knows all about fighting for her rights. But she may need more than determination to face down the distractingly handsome Nate Grayson, the Grove's bull-headed mayor.

    Vivid is one of my favorite books of all time. So maybe it's due to the fact that I've read the book several times and I have an idea of how I think it should be read, or perhaps it's because I listen to books all the time...but this reader was not the best. She has a great voice but she's "reading the book" and not performing if that makes any sense. Her extra breaths where a breath doesn't fit is just wearing me OUT! I love Beverly Jenkins and Im not sad that I bought the book. Please give it a try and excuse my frustration. #teambeverlyjenkins...

    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.

    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....

    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..

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.
