    "A great story an inconsistent narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Come the Spring the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the characters and as the last of a series it was an impressive finale.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The beauty of this book is that all the characters major and minor stand out. I enjoyed both the good guys and the bad guys. I can visualize the villains and the heroes as well as all the supporting players (why I think it is a 5 star story).


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mikael Naramore?

    Richard Ferrone who gave an excellent performance in the Recorded books release in 1998. I think a male narrator is a good choice but Naramore characters and emotional passages were very inconsistent. He over did female emotions and southern black dialect.

    "Best Clayborne book of all!"

    This is the story of Cole Clayborne, the toughest of the brothers. Drafted to help capture a group of murdering thieves, Cole makes friends and finds love. It is a novel from 1997 filled with adventure and romance. Worth the effort!

    "Love the story"

    Love the way all 4 books came together with Cole at the end and how it ties in with her contemporary novels I hope she writes more of these that tied with other novels and characters and for other readers who have not read the other novels that tie into them she is brilliant that any of her stories can be pick up and read. The narrator is good with the men voices but as good with the females, but overall it was great.

    "Great end to this series"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this last book in the series. Had all the details I appreciated from the first one. Cole was one of my favorites in this family from the start. The plot was interesting and had some good twists. Would definitely recommend listening to the previous two in the series first. The narrator was pretty good. I know other reviewers didn't like him much, and I agree I didn't like his voice for Daniel. But overall it did not ruin the series for me.
