Love Marguerite Gavin's readings, she brings the characters to life. However, living in Boulder, some of her local mispronunciations of local landmarks make me crazy. For example, it's not El-Itches, it's E-Litches. When creating local flavor, it would be a good idea to check these details...
Any of the Dead Wiitch Walking series.
Her presentation of the different characters.
If you like historical fiction, especially with a religious twist, this is an interesting story. If not, might not be the best for you--I happen to really like historical and religious stories so I found this fascinating. The downside was that there are some very strange things in the recording quality--spliced in bits that almost sound like a different reader.
I have to admit, I couldn't get through the end of this book. I had the thought that it would improve, but the story just seemed so endlessly discouraging and bleak. There were mildly humorous bits, just not enough to sustain my interest. The narrator is great, and I think the book may seem funnier to other people than it did to me. It seemed like all the bad parts of being a working mother and none of the good things.
