    "Fascinating Story"

    This civil war story from the perspective of a former female slave is a joy to listen to.

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "Through the Storm"

    This is a wonderful historic romance. This is the first book I have listened to from this author but I will definitely listen to more. I still find it hard to believe that slavery actually existed at one time. The history was fascinating while intertwined with a steamy romance. I especially liked that all the hot and steamy parts happened in the context of marriage. I enjoy Christian fiction, but often times I wish they would give a few more details. Overall, great book, very entertaining and uplifting. Jennifer

    "A different perspective"

    I found the intermingling if history and romance a little awkward at times. However, it taught me a lot about the era that I did not realize. Additionally, it was well narrated. I came to care a lot about the characters. I may listen again, just to here the history lesson again. I feel very proud of those who sacrificed to make things better for our country.

    "The narrator bored me to tears.."

    Now I will be the first to say that I love Beverly Jenkins books. I own this ebook and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. However the audio book was a complete snore! I literally fell asleep at my desk. Save your money and just read the book to yourself! Glad I got it on sale....
