    Amaryllis, Mississippi, is a scrappy little town of strong backbone and Southern hospitality. A brick-paved Main Street, a park, and a legendary ghost in the local cemetery are all part of its heritage. Everybody knows everybody in Amaryllis, and gossip wafts on the breeze. Its people are friendly, its families tight. On the surface, Amaryllis seems much like the flower for which it’s named - bright and fragrant. But the Amaryllis flower is poison. In the past three years, five unsolved murders have occurred in the town.

    I loved Book 2 in the Singing River Series. I like it when the books in a series follow the same people. All the characters are wonderful and the narrator brings everyone of them to life with her voice. She has a different voice for each character and it is so good. Can't wait to start Book #3. Gilbert Morris is a great author.

    At the beginning of this story I really thought it was going to be to depressing to listen to. So much tragedy. But I am so glad I stayed with it. Wonderful story and I loved the language used. Fantastic narrator. I am now enjoying the second book in this series.

    In this enthralling tale, schoolmarm Edythe Amsel arrives in 1882 Nebraska with lofty goals. Soon her teaching methods—and her views on women’s rights—ruffle feathers. Only Joel Townsend speaks in support of the teacher who’s won the affection of his nephews. But when Miss Amsel reveals her deepest beliefs, he can no longer defend her—even if she’s stolen his heart.

    Courting Miss Amsel was a delightful story and the narrator was fantastic. She had a different voice for each character and I love it when a narrator does this. I could picture each character in my mind just by the way the narrator changed her voice. Looking for more audio books with Laurie Birmingham as narrator.

    Story

    I normally don't listen to stories that have a western theme, but I am so glad I listened to this one. The story was so very, very good. The narrator was one of the best I have ever heard. Her expression and change of voices for each character brought the story to life as if I could see it all. Stories with an underdog always tear at my heartstrings. The only thing I did not like was the word Whore, repeated many times. Even though the word fit, I felt like it was crude for a Christian book.

    Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn't all that upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they've ever done is work her to the bone. She prayed for a chance to get away, and then came the raging flood. Alive but disoriented, she's rescued by Luke Stone...so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future. Luke is heading home to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family.

    On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can't believe it when he's forced off the train by an outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the preacher she requested for her birthday. He's determined to escape - which would be much easier if he could stop thinking about Joanna Robbins and her unexpected request. For months, Joanna had prayed for a minister. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. But just when it seems her prayers have been answered, it turns out the parson is there against his will....

    With the stunning prose and engaging characters of The Silent Governess, Christy Award finalist Julie Klassen whisks listeners away to Regency England for a compelling tale of romance and intrigue. Thinking she’s guilty of a crime, Olivia Keene flees her home and stumbles upon a grand estate—and a damaging secret. To ensure her silence, Lord Bradley insists she serve in his opulent manor.

    What a great story. It takes a while to figure out who everyone is and put it together but that is ok because it is so interesting with so many different people and just when you think the story is going one way it takes a sharp turn to somewhere else. The narrator did an excellent job with the right expression and voice change. Plan on listening to all Julie Klassen books.
