    I really can't answer this question.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11 year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life.

    If you could sum up Anne of Green Gables in three words, what would they be?

    Still a favorite


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a story I have read many times over the years from childhood to "great grandmotherhood". Being the only girl with four big brothers, I was always being put to a challenge and would seldom back down regardless of the outcome. Thus, it is easy to relate to Anne. Shelly Frasier is a marvelous reader and adapting her voice to each character.


    Which character – as performed by Shelly Frasier – was your favorite?

    I think it was Anne although the couple who took her in were true heroines.


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

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep these old classics alive and in print so all generations may enjoy them for years to come.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Witness?

    The characters were very real and the story is something that could or does happen. It combined suspense, a love story and reality. Kept me on my "toes" until the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were three characters I especially liked. Elizabeth Fitch aka Abigail, her dog Bert and Chief of Police Brooke. They made the story believable. One could feel Elizabeth's fear, the reaction of her excellently trained dog and the way Brooke sucessfully carried out his job in resolving to break this case. You could also feel the humanity of the story.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    I am an avid reader and this lady is one the the best adapting her voice to each character. I think she would be excellent in narrating any book.


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

    I neither laughed or cried but waited in suspense as each chapter was read to see the murderers captured. Seeing that Elizabeth could regain her real identity and live a true life was absolute relief but I hated to see the book end as it was so well written.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt this book was one of the best written by Nora Roberts.

    Lilly Yazhi knows all she needs to know about Clay Tahoma. Sure, he’s got a certain appeal befitting his Navajo roots, but she’s not falling for Clay’s silent, “earthy” attractiveness. She certainly won’t make the same mistake as Clay’s ex-wife. Only trouble is, her heart and mind have committed to different resolves.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Promise Canyon the most enjoyable?

    I grew up in Shasta County, met my hubby in Chico and often go to many of the areas where these stories include.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It related to the small communities that my husband and I lived in when he was an elementary teacher. Now we go to Shelter Cove below Garberville often where daughter and hubby have second home. Right in the middle of grower country that often makes the news. The characters in the series are similar to ones I grew up with and it is exciting to read about them as they come to life for me. Great series and well written. Hope more are in the offing.


    What about Therese Plummer???s performance did you like?

    How her voice took on the character of each person. One of my favorite readers.


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

    YES! I couldn't get to the next chapter fast enough yet hated to see story end.


    Any additional comments?

    Please add more to this wonderful series.

    I would never recommend this. Not really a plot. It was the poorest choice of all the many audible books I have downloaded.
