    Would you listen to Speaks the Nightbird again? Why?

    This book was really good, with excellent characters. I loved the way the author didn't leave any detail hanging. My only problem with the book is it got a little long in parts. I had no idea how this book was going to end and was satisfied with the ending. Overall very good book.

    After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he's lost his passion. His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion - for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet.

    Thank you Jan Karon for bringing back the characters we love. The only problem was when the narrator finished the book, I had to leave Mitford. The narrator was wonderful & I cannot wait for the next Mitford book.

    The youngest of three daughters, Angela DeSaria Malone was always "the princess" of the family, a girl who thought she knew how her life would unfold. High School. College. Marriage. Motherhood. That was how it had gone for her sisters, her cousins, her friends. But it didn't work out that way for Angie. She and her husband tried desperately to have a child; year after year, their perfectly decorated nursery remained empty. Finally, their marriage collapsed under the weight of lost dreams.

    Hallmark movie in book form. The story line was predictable, with a few twists. Definitely need tissues at the end.

    Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

    What made the experience of listening to Drums of Autumn the most enjoyable?

    Continuing to follow the characters of Claire & Jamie.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspense in not knowing how the story would end. Did Brennia go home, did Roger find her, what happens to Jamie & Claire.....


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Her portrayals of all the voices. When I think of a character I can hear Davina's voice and how she portrays them. She is excellent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The only drawback to this book is the length. At points I felt like saying "just get on with it". But it was well worth the wait.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
