  • Hit by a Farm: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Barn

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Catherine Friend
    • Narrated By Catherine Friend

    Catherine Friend was happy being an author and writing instructor. She always wore clean clothes. She never had anything disagreeable stuck to the bottom of her shoes. That all changed the day she agreed to help her partner Melissa fulfill Melissa’s lifelong ambition to farm in Minnesota. Catherine and Melissa embark on a rural odyssey filled with sheep, goats, chicken, llamas, and a host of other natural disasters. As it turns out, farming isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    John S. says: "A strong interest in animals helps here a lot!"
    "Awesome Read"
    If you could sum up Hit by a Farm in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Eye Opening, Educational(with humour)

    Which character – as performed by Catherine Friend – was your favorite?

    The farm animals

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

    To be honest it sucked me in from the beginning, i loved the stories and personalities of all the farm animals those that stayed short periods and those that stayed for as long as they could.

    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the most enjoyable books i have read in a long time. It was very funny, incredibly well written and very honest. I felt the sadness and the joy that the writer was portraying in her life story or should i say her menage a` trios. I definitely received an eye opening education on farming and the struggles that quite frankly us city folk just don't get...nor appreciate. I giggled throughout the entire book as the writer took me on a journey of her struggles, awareness and joys with her new found life on the farm. I was very happy to read the epilogue at the end, i am well aware of the struggles of living and working with my partner of 17years and what it take to find that special balance. "A must read"

  • Curious Wine

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Katherine Forrest
    • Narrated By Jane Merrow

    Curious Wine is a love story set in Lake Tahoe between Diane Holland and Lane Christianson. Beautifully written and intensely romantic, it has been described a masterpiece of lesbian love and set a very high standard for the genre. Award winning author Katherine V Forrest offers a candid portrait of first discovery which is evocatively delivered by actress Jane Merrow.

    Mary says: "Coming Out"
    "Wonderful Story"

    I would absolutley recommend this audiobook to anyone that wants to listen to me. It is a wonderful story a true love story and narrated by the most beautiful eliquient voice in Jane Merrow

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Curious Wine?

    I love the flow of the book, it was incredibly well written, kept me interested the entire time the love scene was tasteful not sharp and crass as lesbian books can be. Just a wonderful story that should be read by all lesbians at one point in their lives.

    What about Jane Merrow’s performance did you like?

    Fabulous, what a wonderful reading voice

    Who was the most memorable character of Curious Wine and why?

    Lane for sure. I love the softness of her character and the full realisations of where and whom she wanted to be in her life.
