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.
Very entertaining an enjoyable stories. This is really 2 separate intertwined stories in one book. Spirit Journey and Gossamer Threads. There are so many characters that if you don’t start with the Montana Mail Order Bride series, you need to at least start with Book 1 of the Dawson Chronicles. Although it is definitely worth listening to both series. They are all very enjoyable stories that just keep getting better.
Love that she has continued with the children of all our favorite characters from the Montana Mail Order Bride series. The first story Spirit Journey is the story of Justin(Skip) Keller and Peanut Lennox. While on a journey to find Runner, they come across Jaylyn her sister Peanut her infant daughter Annie. After rescuing them Skip falls for Peanut and her baby.
Love that the author Linda Bridey is not afraid to tackle some of the more "taboo" subjects of the time.
There are glimpses into so many different relationships Art & Hailey, Jaylyn & Eric, Rory & Kyle it's kind of a mini soap opera. As always I love seeing all the characters from both series.
The second story Gossamer Threads - Joey and Snow Song - I wasn't prepared - Can't believe you did that- heartbreaking- be ready to have your heart ripped out. Great story, but very emotional.
Mary Ann Weathers does the narration for this book. Once again she does a great job. Great character voices. Pleasant voice. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. She was able to convey every single emotion of the characters and bring the story to life. Very enjoyable. There some changes in the audio sound quality once or twice.

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.

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.

Skip and Peanut were perfect for each other.
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.

I listened to audiobooks before they were cool! I read for LibriVox and I adore Stephen Briggs, T.G. Reynolds and Richard Armitage.
I would say that the authoress of Spirit Journey needs a few more books under her belt. This is a good story, but still a bit lost under writing that takes a picky reader like me out of the flow.
If you forget that the story is supposed to be set in a historical era, it will improve significantly. The characters are drawn quite well, but they say a lot of things that could have been beautifully shown instead. That's a shame, because the writing loses subtlety.
Sometimes I don't believe the character's actions - if you send a random woman and her baby to your parents and want them to house her, because you intend to marry her, I suppose they may have some serious objections, even if they love you :) I would at least come with her, however much the author needs me to be somewhere else in the plot :)
Also, please beware of preaching about the Native American question. I sympathize, but subtlety in this is definitely better than outright monologues. Say less, show more. It will come through louder and clearer that way instead of irritating. I promise.
Otherwise, very nice work with characters, and the love Peanut and Skip feel for each other is painted beautifully.
Keep writing, Linda!
