Read this book and loved it. Kevin Free did a fair job as narrator but I must admit I love Thomas Penny as the narrator of Ms Jenkins books. As I have read every book Ms Jenkins has written and then listen to them as they become available on Audible I know the women to be strong independent minded women. Mr Free's narration in female voices sound weak and meek. Great job Ms Jenkins well written!
If you like listening to stories on the radio, you will like this.
I love the role the main characters play. The way they love and their will power. How their love made them strong.
I love the main characters.
I love Beverly Jenkins books. I have read all her books. I love the characters and the history story line.
This is first I have heard of this book, however I enjoy the authors work so much.
The Preacher of course!
He was the worst narrator I have ever heard. The book would have been much better with different narrator, he made the women all sound the same.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Not predictable. Strong characters and ensemble cast. While I am not necessarily a western reader, I loved this story and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good book. The narration was superb.
I'm a huge fan of Audible. As a school librarian, I've found that it passes my days and nights.
I have not read the print version. However, I would think that the print version is great. I loved the storyline.
The most memorable was when the Marshall came in the saloon on Smoke. Loved it.
It was sickening. His voice is fine as long as it was his natural voice. I didn't not like his attempts at speaking as a female. At times I cringed. I kept listening because I really enjoyed the overall feel and plot of the story.
Jenkins does a great job of using worlds to paint a picture of each seen and the characters. Throughout, I felt as if I was watching a movie.
I downloaded this book because of its high rating, and because a "western" romance is not my usual area of interest. But I decided to try something different, and it sounded interesting, so I bought it.
Big mistake. I should have stuck to what I KNOW I like. This story could have been written by someone in junior high, it was so simplistic. The language was not at all engaging, not very descriptive, and overall pretty dull.
The narration was awful, particularly for that of the female lead. She was either clipped in her speech, or just so darned perky it was ridiculous. Nether tone fit the situations she found herself in. I had a hard time listening to the end.
The few historical tidbits are the only reason I gave the story two stars instead of one.
I will not download another book by this author or this narrator. There are better books out there. NOT recommended.
