I would actually rate this book 3½ stars, because the narration ruined it for me. Another good author who hasn't done his homework right, when it comes to audiobooks. Please, choose a good narrator - a proffesional one. Joseph Durika sounded like a cozy grandpa, which I enjoyed, but his female voices are terrible and his pacing inconsistent.
This story is captivating if I'd read the book instead of listening to it. It's very well-written and has a great plot. It has a high level of historical elements from the time of the civil war and I loved the characters. I'll give the author 4 stars, because of the quality of the story, that's only fair.

The Law of Moses: Sam and Laura's Story, Book 1
: Kwen Griffeth
This is a terrific historical/ western fiction. As I listened I felt as if I was reading Sam's memoir rather than fiction. The listener follows the Marshall as he protects his town to his utmost ability. We are treated to the beginnings of a romance, a murder, cattle drovers , and anything else that fits the story. I came away feeling like I knew the characters, and cared what happened to them. I will be looking for more in this series.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Joseph Durika's voice and inflection fit the story well.
