Audible Editor Reviews

Readers Sandra Douglas Weir and David Pepper are joined by winners of the Voice of the Year poetry competition. No matter who is reading or what is being read, the delivery is uniformly professional. What's more, it always fits both the overall tone of the collection and the specific focus of the winter-themed poems included here. The pace is often leisurely, and the selections range across several centuries and cultures.

    "Outstanding! An Inspiring Collection!"

    I love Audible's books on Longfellow, Keats, and the Classic 100. But this one stands alone to me. Winters are long here, and this work is wonderful to listen to anywhere. The narrating is done very well, and you will come back to this recording again and again.

    I write poetry myself, and I enjoy the well known authors and even the seldom heard works like "The Way of Wood" will appeal to any one who burns firewood, as it tells of the different uses and characteristics of different wood.

    It is August, and I confess I've been listening to this one already...again.
