    In the first sequel to Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Montgomery's feisty red-headed heroine is now 16 and a school teacher in the small village of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Although older, she isn't necessarily wiser, and she hasn't outgrown her mischievous antics.

    Where does Anne of Avonlea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rate this in my top 10 audio books

    Mirella. Her overall strength and ability to work and change to events of her life keep both Ann(e) and the reader grounded.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are several. I love the misadventure scenes with Davy. Perhaps my favorite is the one in which Anne and Gilbert come understand themselves as a unit

    Enjoy the despairs and triumphs along with Ann(e) and friends as they face their lives out of the school room

    When a black boy named Paris saves Trudy from being crushed by a runaway Sunbeam Bread truck, they become friends. Navigating a multi-racial friendship in 1964 is no easy thing, however. The racism they encounter inspires them to go on an audacious adventure: to take down the Confederate flag that flies atop the South Carolina State House. And they can't do it without the help of Trudy's grandmother, Ida.

    Story

    I loved the premise of this book, the way the characters were written and depth of the Grandmother's love. I probably related must closely with the Grandmother but there were times I remember those feelings of the granddaughter.

    I sincerely appreciate that Holly Adams was chosen to narrate this book as she once again took me into the magic of the story as the characters gained life in my mind. She has done this for me in many of the other books she has narrated. She seems to have a special understanding of families and the relationships that come through her narration.

    I'm exceptionally glad this book entered my life this particular summer. It was my first time with this author but I know there will be more.

    Some books I choose specifically because I know the narrator will always find the path that will open up the story for me. Holly Adams is one of those narrators for me.

    I highly recommend this book in audible form and any format that is your favorite

    Welcome to Perky's Books & Gifts where gardening books blossom into bouquets, cookbooks sizzle with succulent juices, and military history books can be lethal. Don't mind the mutilated body behind the werewolf display, or the fact that the cafe manager is an egregore; Frankenstein was one, too. The story of Perky's Books & Gifts begins with murder and ends with true love. It is told by Madison, Perky's night manager. She must band with her quirky (maybe just plain crazy) staff to figure out just what is making the books spring to life and terrorize the store.

    Story

    I would indeed recommend both the writer and the narrator who brings it alive and dances through our minds.

    It took a couple of minutes to really figure out the story's direction but that was okay and enjoyable.

    Certainly the genre may affect ones choice of the book but once you've suspended your own sense of reality and fallen down the rabbit hole it is so marvelous.

    For me it provided just enough focus and diversion to enhance pain relief. Thank you.

    And, thank you, Holly for being the narrator who brought it alive

    Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband...someday.

    As I didn't have any of my print books with me I could quite place the relationship within the family
    The best I could figure is that the young Bridgerton still at school will be the father that dies of the bee sting

    This story was great fun and I enjoyed it from start to finish . My daughter and I got talking and really want to meet the young Lady Danbury

    Alex Rider's life changed forever with the silent pull of a trigger. When Ian Rider died at the hands of the assassin Yassen Gregorovich, Alex, ready or not, was thrust into the world of international espionage - the world's only teenage spy. Alex vowed revenge against Yassen and the two have battled ever since. Yet, years ago, it was none other than Alex's own father who trained and mentored Yassen, turning him into the killer he would eventually become. What makes us choose evil?

    Story

    As I didn't know author or narrator I didn't have any expectations and as it is slightly out of my usual genre I may even have been sceptical, this book now rates with my listen to again and group

    I enjoyed the humour, the tension, and the twists that wove together a story of love, family, and mystery. I highly recommend this book.

    The narrator, Holly is so very versatile and talented. She drew me into the story and the characters.

    Many thanks for a great book with great narration
