'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.
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.
It was wonderful that Harriet Stanton was able to find love. My heart broke for her over her unrequited love of Nick Sanders, which was common knowledge of the whole town. This story allowed readers to see her true character and her love for children. The town really is lucky to have her.
This book take's you right from the first one into the second series, and as usual keep you interested. much compassion and love in all the series. you won't be disappointed, it is well worth the credit or money...
I found this story to be very a mix of action, family and community dynamics and romance. I loved the interaction between Harriet and David and between Daniel and David. I really enjoy how Debra writes her children in her books as central characters that have a lot of depth.
Harriet! I have been discovering this feisty schoolmarm in the previous books. I found that Harriet is a strong, able woman but still vulnerable and in need of protection. I though the author did a great job of balancing the different facets of her personality.
I found her ready absolutely fantastic. I am able to recognize the different character voices extremely easily. In addition, she brought so much emotion to each character. She really made the sadness and despair in David's voice make the entire situation more real.
Well since everyone is being married off, I would like a lunch with Samatha, Pamela and Elizabeth just to have news about their families and talk a little town gossip.
I found this story left me wanting more from the characters! I felt there could have been more chemistry between Ant and Harriet as well as more development of their personalities. I am looking forward to seeing how their family grows in future books!
Would appreciate if the books would let you know it they have sexual insinuations or curse words. Won't get any more of Debra Holland books.
