    She Walks in Beauty draws on poetry’s eloquent wisdom to ponder the many joys and challenges of being a woman. Caroline Kennedy has divided the collection into sections that signify to her the most notable milestones, passages, and universal experiences in a woman’s life, and she begins each of these sections with an introduction in which she explores and celebrates the most important elements of life’s journey.

    Story

    I was so happy when I got this from my mom for my 21st birthday. I love poetry (and especially writing ones too). These poems are so relatable of what I am going through and it's nice listening to the audible version too. It's nice and relaxing. The pacing is excellent and all of the voices narrate the poems great. It's a must have for every woman out there (especially for those who love poetry as much as I do).

    Maerad is a slave in a desperate and unforgiving settlement, taken there as a child when her family is destroyed in war. She doesn’t yet know she has inherited a powerful gift, one that marks her as a member of the noble School of Pellinor and enables her to see the world as no other can. It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true identity and extraordinary destiny unfold.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No unless you like a slow and British accent. It was hard to understand some of the words that the narrator was saying.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that this story was original and was very fantasy like.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the enthusiasm of the voice and the slight twang of some of the words. I did not like that there was some words that were changed (for an abridged version of an audiobook).


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the main character relived her mother's life and finding her brother after she thought that he died as an infant.


    Any additional comments?

    This book and audiobook was a random find.
