    Story
    "Proverbs"
    If you could sum up Proverbs for the People in three words, what would they be?

    Learning the moral.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Proverbs for the People?

    I don't remember one that stands out, but all of the stories give a moral. It's experience the trials and triumphs of others.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good narrator.

    "A must listen!"

    Wonderful stories! The lessons contained are priceless! Will listen again and again . Each narrator brought a different depth to the story, sometimes I would drop a tear other times I would literally laugh out loud.

    "Stories For The Soul"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories. I loved how each story was creatively weaved from an African Proverbs. These stories were well written with characters that came to life.
    Absolutely worth the time to experience this masterful collection.

    I love books of all kinds; but have a preference for Afr0-American authors. However, I'll read books by anyone. I HATE romance novels!
