Publisher's Summary

As a child, Hester Wyatt escaped slavery, but now the dark-skinned beauty is a member of Michigan's Underground Railroad, offering other runaways a chance at the freedom she has learned to love.

When one of her fellow conductors brings her an injured man to hide, Hester doesn't hesitate...even after she is told about the price on his head. The man in question is known as the "Black Daniel", a vital member of the North's Underground Railroad network. But Hester finds him so rude and arrogant, she begins to question her vow to hide him.

Galen Vachon is a member of one of the wealthiest free black families in New Orleans. He has turned his back on the lavish living he is accustomed to in order to provide freedom to those who are enslaved in the South. However, as he heals, he cannot turn his back on Hester Wyatt; he is determined to make this gorgeous and intelligent woman his own. Yet there are traitors to be discovered and slave catchers to be evaded before Hester and Galen can find the freedom that only true love can bring.

Contains mature themes.

    "So excited to see Indigo on Audible"

    One of my favorites by Ms. Jenkins. I've read Indigo several times and when I found it on Audible I had to get it right away. Felt the same after seeing Vivid another of my favorites. Story is exceptional and told with elegance and intrigue. Falling in love along with learning a bit of history makes this book a phenonimal good read. HOWEVER, I cringe at this narrators French accent for Galen. So disappointing! He speaks French but is not French so why oh why did she feel Galen needed to have a French accent???? It's HORRIBLE. I imagined his voice to be strong deep and controlled but what we got was a weak terrible sound squeaky voice with a terrible French like accent. I love the story and will finish the listen at the same time I'll imagine Galen's voice as it should be not what I'm hearing. Love Beverly Jenkins my ALLTIME favorite authors

    "Still my favorite book!"

    Of all the books I've read Indigo is at the TOP of my lists. It's by far one of the best books I've ever read so when I saw that it now available in audio format I immediately purchased it. Hester and Galen's fight against slavery is one to be admired. The characters are very well developed and the feelings that blossom between the two are truly lifelong. Ms. Jenkins has a way of teaching you about history within the story and you never walk away after reading her books the way you started. She's still no. 1 in my book. And after having said all that I will say this...I hate this narrator! Lord why??? I almost cried when I heard her interpretation of Galen's voice. Her attempt of a french accent did not make it's mark. The rest of the voices were ok but her french accent has got to stop. (I feel awful for this by the way, I wanted it to be good SOOOOOOO bad).

    "Good enough to read it and ditch the narrator!"
    Where does Indigo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its a great book with well fleshed out characters and storylines.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robin Eller’s performances?

    I really am not trying to be mean but this reading is a disservice to the book. Its just awful. Flat, dull, monotone, annoying...really horrible. The text-to-speech on my Kindle was better and less distracting than this narration. I wound up just reading it with no sound. If they re-record it with a more lively narration I would purchase it. How does, Thomas Penny or the other guy sound better, for male and female voices, than a women reading a romance novel? Thanks but no thanks.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful story. As always, full of history and romance. Please don't use Ms. Eller as a narrator anymore. I want to return the book but I wont just to support the author and the ability of getting this specific niche on audiobooks, there is nothing out there like Ms. Jenkins writings.

    "SCHOOL DAYS"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes because of the writer; no because of the narrator. I fell asleep on it several times.


    What other book might you compare Indigo to and why?

    Vivid - same author. Same narrator too. (Although, her narrations were better with Vivid).


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robin Eller’s performances?

    I did - Vivid.


    Was Indigo worth the listening time?

    Because I read the book first, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if the narrator was just not interested in the book or had no concept of the time period in which she was reading but I thought she was reading a textbook. I think a little prior knowledge would have made this a more pleasurable listen.

    "Wonderful Indigo"

    Loved the story. Suspenseful. A lot of history interwoven in the story. You will love Hester and Galen's story. Struggled with the voice of Galen. The voice of Galen was awful. The narrator made him sound like such a wimp, instead of the deep sultry voice that the author intended. Would have preferred more creole French. However, I still loved the story.

    Galen was the type of man made of dreams. This was a true romance. I listened to it twice.

    "I enjoyed this story immensely."

    It exceeded my expectations for romantic literature. There was mystery, romance and tastefully done erotic interludes. The performance kept me listening for more.
