  • Ride the Wind

    • UNABRIDGED (29 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Lucia St. Clair Robson
    • Narrated By Laurie Klein

    In 1836, when she was nine years old, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanche Indians. This is the story of how she grew up with them, mastered their ways, married one of their leaders, and became, in every way, a Comanche woman. It is also the story of a proud and innocent people whose lives pulsed with the very heartbeat of the land. It is the story of a way of life that is gone forever.

    mamaD says: "nice book but the narrator could be better."
    "Held spellbound!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Couldn't read it fast enough. Each chapter left me wanting more. I felt like I was living alongside each character and felt their pain, joy, and sorrow. I whole heartedly recommend this book, it is a must read. Would love to see it played out on the "big" screen.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ride the Wind?

    When Wanderer and Cynthia finally displayed their love for each other.

    What does Laurie Klein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Laurie is fantastic. Her voice brought the characters to life. She is so good you can actually tell the characters apart when they are having a conversation. One of the best readers I have heard.

    If you could take any character from Ride the Wind out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Wanderer. I would love to hear more about the indian way of life. They did not have it easy. He not only was a warrior but a compasonate caring person when he needed to be.

    Any additional comments?

    Just get the book. You will not be disappointed.

  • Falling into You

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Jasinda Wilder
    • Narrated By Gabriel Vaughan, Piper Goodeve

    Nell Hawthorne is in love with her life-long best friend, Kyle Calloway. Their young love is invincible and life is full of promise; then one night Kyle dies suddenly in a tragic accident and Nell is forever changed. She meets Kyle's older brother, Colton, for the first time at the funeral. They both struggle to move on with life as best they can. Years later, they meet again in New York City, and Colton realizes that Nell has never really gotten over Kyle's death. She seems to be harboring a deeply rooted pain, a heavy weight of guilt, and regret. He knows he shouldn't get involved, but he can't help himself.

    AudioAddict says: "Hard to categorize this one!"
    "Suspense, romance, sadness, joy and LOVE!"
    Where does Falling into You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I wish I could give "Falling into You" more than 5 stars. I truly enjoyed this book and will read it many times. I loved the characters and felt their emotions that spanned the spectrum from desperation to desire. I fell in love with them! I shed many tears along with them. If you are thinking of buying this book don't think twice. "Just do it!" I loved the song at the end of the book. Nice touch! Great song!

    What did you like best about this story?

    The need that Nell and Colt had for each other even before they knew it themselves. Two broken souls finding each other.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the whole book. But, one scene would be when Nell found Colt playing his guitar on the rooftop before sunrise and the discussion they had.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried. However, they felt like cleansing tears more than sadness. The author truly brought the characters into my heart and mind.

    Any additional comments?

    Gabriel Vaughan did a fantastic job. What a voice! I would love to see this novel on Broadway! Someone, please, write the screenplay.
