I enjoyed all three audiobooks in this series (Love Comes Softly, Love's Enduring Promise and Love's Long Journey) and hope the same narrator will continue in this series. I found her voice quite easy to listen to and especially appreciated her differnt voices for different characters.
The best way I can describe this book (and the whole series for that matter) would be the feminine and Christian equivalent of many Louis L'Amour novels. With vivid descriptions of life on the frontier - I came away with a deep appreciation for women's contribution to frontier life survival and for the value of faith in each character's lives.
The reader sounds like she has a mouthful of spit. The voices all sound horrible as well.
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because the story line is good, and the characters are interesting.
For me, one of the most memorable moments was when Marti shared her faith with her dying neighbor.
I liked Ruth Ann Phimister’s performance. She narrated the first book and when this book started I was able to just pick up where the first book ended. She seemed like an old friend.
My favorite character is Marti (the main character). She is constantly growing and learning, and she doesn’t even know it.
This book was as wonderful as the first one. It gives you the expanded details on the characters, so you are not left with questions about what they were thinking, or wondering why they would act a certain way.
Typical Janette Oke
The underlying lessons on love
They are all good
I've read all of Love Comes Softly; I've watched the whole series on DVD. Now that I am visually impaired, Audio Books are truly a blessing.
I had the pleasure of ordering both "Love Comes Softly" and Love's Enduring Promise" at the same time, and was able to listen to each book consecutively. Such enjoyable books, I hated to come to the end of them.
