    Story
    (144)

    In her small early-19th-century Welsh town, there is no one quite like Morgana. She is small and quick and pretty enough to attract a suitor, but there are things that set her apart from other girls. Though her mind is sharp she has not spoken since she was a young girl. Her silence is a mystery, as well as her magic - the household objects that seem to move at her command, the bad luck that visits those who do her ill. Concerned for her safety, her mother is anxious to see Morgana married....

    L.W. says: "Took me back in time...."
    "Very good listen!"

    Any additional comments?

    Recording was spot-on and the story was wonderful. It has almost an Avalon feel, if you are into Marion Zimmern Bradley.

    Story
    (524)

    Genteel society ladies who compare notes on their husbands' suicides. A hilariously foul-mouthed black drag queen. A voodoo priestess who works her roots in the graveyard at midnight. A prominent antiques dealer who hangs a Nazi flag from his window to disrupt the shooting of a movie. And a redneck gigolo whose conquests describe him as a "walking streak of sex".

    Joey says: "A little slow, but entertaining"
    "Great Listen!"

    Story
    If you could sum up Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil in three words, what would they be?

    Really great listen


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes - I knew a litttle of the history from a previous trip to Savannah and was told to read this book. I was on edge the whole time trying to piece together what I already knew and how it would fit with the story.


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

    Woodman was a great narrator. The voices were distinct and the plot never became muttled.


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

    I laught out loud several times.
