    "Sticking to what you believe"
    Would you listen to The Sleeping Night again? Why?

    Yes, I read the story first and knew the audiobook would be more intense then the book. The storyline is about a subject matter this country and all people are still dealing with, the right for all beings to love who we choose.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that the female character didn't back down from her belief that she could love whomever she wanted to no matter what others say.


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Gray – was your favorite?

    Angel was my favorite because she stood up for what she believed in and didn't care that others turned their backs on her. She was a leader for others to follow, not someone to follow.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene that moves me the most is when the men attach Angel and destroy her store, and she fights back. She also stays with Isiah and they leave for England to start a new life.


    Any additional comments?

    Barbara Samuel is one of my favorite authors, her words paint a picture in details and the plot will let you live inside the story and make you sigh, laugh, cry and never want to stop listening.
