    "Enjoyed it"

    I would actually give it a 4.5. Even though you already know where the plot is going, it's fun getting there.

    Story
    "Excellent listen! not as Jesus-y as it sounds"

    I enjoyed this book even more than the first. I purchased Ruby not realizing that these were "inspirational." But, because of the historical context, the references to religion fit well with the story, which is sweet and interesting and wonderfully narrated.

    Story
    "Moved slow and not real exciting. Ended badly."
    What did you like best about Pearl? What did you like least?

    I liked the way the characters evolved. I liked the fact that she writes like a Christian with none of the worldly influence.I didn't like the ending.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lauraine Snelling? Why or why not?

    Yes, I want to finish the series because they are clean.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice is irritating and slow and her inflections are wrong.


    Could you see Pearl being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I would like to see the whole series being made into a series. Don't know stars well enough to have input.

    Story
    "Sweet series."

    I listened to this book on a looonnnggg road trip which may have been a mistake. The narrator is a bit montone, but it may have been the monotone highway I was on. The story is sweet. The series is a good one.

    "Good listen"

    I enjoyed this book. The narrator has a unique voice, but I liked her. Listen to the sample before buying.
