This audio download is actually two books: Spirit Journey and Gossamer Threads. If you've read the previous books you will enjoy these additions to the series.
The first book focuses on the romance of Skip & Peanut and we get more information about The tribe, Runner, and the Spirit Journey. The second book focuses on the relationship of Joey & Snow Song and gives glimpses into the lives of Rory & Kyle, Eric & Jaylin and members of the tribe.
I know each book in this series is supposed to be considered a "stand alone" book but I would recommend reading these books in order. These stories connect beautifully and each book builds the character and story development.
The narration is very good for most voices. Each voice is unique but my only negative is that some of the male voices tend to be on the whiney side.
(Note: These books may not appeal to everyone because the story does delve into Tribal customs and practices. This story shows that homosexuality within their tribe is honored and not frowned upon. As a Christian, I have different views than the Tribe but I did appreciate that the author was true to the tribe's beliefs. We all have different opinions regarding this subject but we need to be less judgemental and more compassionate. None of us are perfect, we all sin and struggle in life. We need to let God handle the judging! And......I'm sure to get many negative votes for saying this.)
I enjoyed these books and I am grateful that the author, narrator, or publisher provided me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

If you have been following the families of Dawson, you will definitely want to listen to/read this book. Linda Bridey has outdone herself in telling the story of Skip Keller and Penelope Lennox, along with the beginnings and endings of several other ongoing relationships in and around the town of Dawson.
Skip and Peanut meet under very unusual circumstances, as Skip travels through the Black Hills with several members of the Dawson community, in search of Runner, who has been missing for two years.
Runner’s family and friends want him to come back to them.
As they are searching they hear voices coming from the canyon they are traveling alongside. On investigating they find Peanut, her baby girl, Annie, and Peanut’s sister, Jaylyn. After rescuing the three from the canyon, the travelers begin to become acquainted with, and learn to trust each other. Relationships begin tentatively budding, Runner is found, truths are revealed, and disaster strikes. Through it all, the characters that we have come to know and love in earlier books, along with the newly introduced characters, remain steadfast and strong, supporting each other as they learn the true meaning of their journey.
Along with Spirit Journey, the author has gifted us with her novella, Gossamer Threads. All I can say about this story is, grab a box of Kleenex and tighten your reins for the ride of your life. I laughed and cried, was stunned, then overjoyed. Dawson will never be the same, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the town and all of it’s residents, who now are family to me.
Spirit Journey: Historical Western Cowboy Romance Novel (Dawson Chronicles Book 3)
by Linda Bridey
This book picks up on the journey to find the missing son, Runner who left about two years earlier. We meet new characters and romance develops. There is self discovery, coming of age, mystery , and suspense.
The cutesy nick names got a little old. Some of the language was too modern for the 1920's, but if you can over look those things there is a good story underneath.
The bonus novella continued the story.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
“I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, in exchange for an unbiased review”
This audiobook had two interlinked books in it, both about members of the Lakota tribe. In these stories the author never shies away from life or living. She tells it "like it is" and at the same time makes it interesting and un-put-down able. Both are emotion evoking in that one seems to personally go through the exact emotion that is appropriate for the character at that moment. That is brilliant writing!
The first story, Spirit Journey, told about the tribe's spiritual journey which was amazingly captivating and also tells of the blossoming love between Skippy and Peanut and her daughter, Annie. He is shy and she is cute but strong and she knows a good man when she finally finds him.
The second story, Gossamer Threads, is about Joey and his deep and all-consuming love for his wife, Snow Song. It also tells about Runner and his relationship with the tribe and the community and touches on the budding relationship between Jaylin and Eric and of the relationship between Rory and Kyle.
There are a few surprises in this story and they teach us that although we can't control what other people do, we can take responsibility for our own actions.
I found both tales interesting and quite educational while being wonderfully entertained.
The narration was good with interesting voice-acting by Mary Ann Weathers.
This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

This book covered just about everything including, friends, family, and traditions.
Overall, an entertaining read and a Welcome addition to the series.
And again, Mary Ann Weathers did well with the narration.
