    "Good Story. Okay narration."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to a friend, as I would with all BJ novels. However, I would suggest that you read the book before listening to the audio book. I think you could get the wrong impression of how great a writer Ms BJ is if you only listen to this performance.


    What didn’t you like about Shari Peele’s performance?

    I usually love Shari Peele's narrations. In fact, I was excited to see that she was narrating this story. However, this was not one of her best performances. The meter was off, and it was very slow. It felt like it was dragging. Also her voices sounded pretty similar, especially the male characters. Her accents were also off. I have heard her do a really good Spanish inflected English accent in other audio books, but in this one it was just off at times. I love her narration of modern stories, but I didn't really care for her performance of this historical romance.

    I'm a huge fan of Audible. As a school librarian, I've found that it passes my days and nights.

    Story
    "Enjoyed it immensely"

    When I looked at the time period of the story, I was a bit hesitant to purchase this title. Boy, am I glad I did. From the first chapter until the last, I was captivated by the story of the eastern woman who left the sufferings she received by the hands of her domineering abusive mother and treaded to an unknown territory. Jenkins did a marvelous job in the telling of this story. A story filled with humor, a bit of sadness, over comings, and love.

    "This was a very good read."
    If you could sum up Destiny's Embrace in three words, what would they be?

    Great, read it!


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little hesitant at first when I read the summary because of the setting era of the book, but the authors descriptive details and ability to be a great storyteller kept me fully engaged!
