'Stormy Montana Sky' ranks in my top 20 in audiobooks! Natalie Ross has a beautiful narrating voice and gives very realistic emotion to the characters she's reading.
In this story, my favorite character was Harriet. She is vulnerable, with challenges to overcome, but she's also quite strong and not afraid to speak out for herself and for others. As the town's schoolteacher, much of her focus and efforts are on the children of Sweetwater Springs, and she does all she can to ensure they have what they need and are well educated. At times she puts herself in dangerous situations because she is thinking of the needs of children and not of her own safety. She is a very admirable character.
I have listened to Natalie Ross in the first two Montana Sky books. This performance was just as good as the other two. Somehow, her German accent ended up sounding more Russian, but that is a small point considering her Spanish accent is perfect! I'm amazed that she is able to keep her characters' voices the same from book to book.
Yes, when Harriet accidentally overheard the conversation between Nick and Elizabeth Sanders at their old house, during their move. It was heart-wrenching for Harriet as she thought she was in love with Nick and had hoped he would marry her.
Even more moving was the first dream scene where 'Ant' discovered his wife was trapped under the beam and he was trying to rescue her...so sad. He fought to get to her and save her only to find her in her final moments.
I didn't think 'Stormy Montana Sky' could be better than the first two books in the series, but it is. There is more action and drama, and several of the characters encounter very real danger! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
**I was given a code for the audiobook of 'Stormy Montana Sky' by the author for honest review.
The narration was outstanding, the story was so heartwarming that you do not want to put it down.
It is so hard to just pick one, David had such a hard life, seeing his mother killed. Trying to live with an abusive father than having to learn to get over his fear and lean to grow with no fear, learning to talk. My heart breaks for him.
Again so hard to pick, Natalie does so many wonderful characters. I could listen to her read all day and never get tired of it. I just do not have a favorite..because they all are my favorite....sorry...
Yes it was very hard to put down, as all of Debra's are. She is an outstanding author that writes wonderful stories that are very believable. I truly love all the books she has wrote and look forward to reading many more from her. She is one of my all time favorite authors.
It was truly heartbreaking to watch Harriet in the last story as well as this one watch the man she love fall for another and marry. I really adored her in both stories and was so glad to see her get a story of her own. It was wonderful watching her find the true man of her dreams.
Ant is a wonderful man who has spent so many years looking for his nephew and the killer of his sister. He has had a very hard life, first his wife dies and then he walks in to find his sister dead. It was a pleasure watching him find them and put an end to his brother-in-law.
It was a pleasure to watch him and Harriet fall in love and watch the trying time they had. The town is a wonderful place that I have grown to love over the last few books in this series. Some of the town people you will love but as in most towns there are the few you can't stand. As in all small towns everyone knows everyone's business it is just a great town all the way around. Debra puts so much thought into her stories as she gives you many twists and turns to make it a not only a wonderful read but and outstanding plot.
David he broke my heart so much pain, sorrow and love there. To watch him come out of his shell was wonderful. I hope to see more of this family in Debra's books, it will be a pleasure to watch him grown and learn. I can only imagine what it must have been like for him to watch and see so much in his young life. The author paints a wonderful compelling story around him as she brings wonderful characters together to build a family with David.
As always Natalie Ross does an outstanding job narrating. her many different voices she brings to her stories are wonderful. She is one of my favorite narrators, you know when you see her name it is going to be a wonderful listen. She paints a wonderful colorful story that the author writes. Making it one of the best audio's you will listen to.
I have read or listen to many of Debra's books and each one is better than the last. She is truly a wonderful outstanding author and one of my favorites. I know when I pick up one of her books it is going to be a wonderful outstanding read or listen. She picks the best narrators and I know she will never let me down. I truly adore Debra Holland stories and can't wait for the next one.
Yes I would
I could listen to Natalie Ross read all the audible books, she has such a nice soft voice.
Yes it was
Great Story and characters. I loved this book and looking forward to the next one I highly recommend Debra Hollands books. Great Author her books draws you right into the story!
A mysterious character shows up in Sweetwater Springs who carries a hard burden. Can the town's people help with his quest? He soon realizes there's much more to this little town than meets the eye. And there's one woman who won't stop at anything when it comes to helping and protecting the children of this budding community.
A villain and backstory that's darker than anything we've come across in both Wild and Starry Montana Sky, but don't let that give you hesitation. The people of Sweetwater Springs that you've come to know and love, have grown closer in their friendships and bonds and are a formidable force. Author Debra Holland deftly takes you into their thoughts and you become as close and part of the community yourself.
So come along for another adventure of action, romance, friendship and hope.
This book is another wonderful wild ride in the Montana wilderness set back in the late 1800s. It is comforting to pick up a new book in a series and find some characters you already know and like. I enjoy these westerns immensely. This book had me in so many different emotions. I laughed and cried (poor David). I lived the characters Harriet and Anthony. I wish David's dad would fall off the end's of the Earth too. The kindness and thoughtfulness people felt back then is inspiring.
The author, Debra Holland did an awesome job on this book, as she always does. I love her style of writing. She has a way of making me feel all the words! The narrator, Natalie Ross delivered a flawless read with emotions, multiple voices and accents. I felt like I was there watching everything unfold. Great job ladies!
*** I picked this book up on Kindle Unlimited and listened to the audio version via WhisperSync. ***
I liked listening to the female narrator. Her version of the different voices are well done and soothing to listen to.
As you move through each book in the series, the town becomes alive and with the characters from the prior books taking key roles, it's like visiting with old friends.I enjoyed listening to this book and look forward to the next in the series.
In the audible version, the young boys fascinated me. They are articulate and mature even though still fairly young. The following is a short passage from David's pov"Daniel elbowed him. Not hard, but friendly like. "I'm going to take you to see the Falabellas before we eat. I want you to meet Chico."David had heard all about the miniatures horses the night of the dance, when the two had sat on the straw bail and talked. Or rather Daniel had talked out loud and David had talked in his mind. Seemed to work just fine. Daniel sure could pack a lot of words into a conversation. His new friend chattered all the way. He rattled off all the names and descriptions of each horse..."Excerpt from Stormy Night by Debra Holland"I enjoyed listening to this book and look forward to the next in the series.
This is Ant and David's and Harriet's story.
Anthony Gordon has been searching for his sister's abducted son for two years. David's father murdered his wife and is on the run with David. Ant finally tracks them down in Clearwater Springs. On the advice of the town doctor, Ant decides to stay in the friendly town and raise David there. After all, the school teacher has helped David recover from the abusive father and Ant is rather fond of her himself.
Harriet felt safe in Ant's arms. He's a big man and reminds her of her father.
Exciting, nail-bitting, awesome!
When Harriet accidentally overheard a very intimate moment between Nick and Elizabeth. It was heartbreaking for Harriet but she had to face the reality that Nick and Elizabeth were truly in love and happy.
There were several. When David was rescued from his awful father. When Samantha got married and the conversation between Samantha and Harriet before the wedding. When Harriet and Ant finally their feelings out in the open to each other and then when they got married. So many in this book.
I alway think which ever book of Debra Holland's I'm reading at the time was the best one of all and it is true with this book. Wasn't sure I was going to like the story about the teacher having feelings for Nick and loving him from afar but this was a great story and one of my favorites out of the series.
I have been enjoying the residents of Sweetwater Springs. I wasn't a big fan of Harriet in the prior books, but I started liking her in this book. You find out about her background. She is rescued by "Ant" and then starts helping him look for his missing nephew. I liked how their relationship grew. Added bonus of the book, you get updates on the main characters from the previous books.
I hope the next book talks about how Ant, Harriet and David are getting along. This one is my favorite so far in this series. I was sad where it ended. I truly feel in love with this story.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
Debra has written another fabulous story. After listening to the first two Montana Sky stories I believe Stormy is my favorite thus far. Once again I felt like I was home as I've come to discover each time I listen to one of Debra's Montana Sky stories. I really do feel as if I'm there and breathing in the fresh unpolluted air. Her stories are so refreshing to set back and listen to. It really doesn't matter your age or the genre you love because I guarantee once you listen to one of Debra Holland's stories you'll fall in love with it and enjoy it immensely.
Narrator Natalie Ross leaves me breathless with her performances of her take on the Montana Sky series. Everything she says is clear, easy to follow, and you're able to understand everything she says. You don't have any problems distinguishing accents and what character is speaking throughout the story. Natalie seems to be right in sync with Debra and she understands exactly what Debra wants and brings it. The work extremely well together. Natalie is talented and it shows in every story you hear her narrate. I highly recommend listening to all of Debra Holland's audiobooks and more of Natalie's work as well.
