It made me really realize that just reading it for myself doesn't give the same depth to the characters, and storyline. I really enjoy being able to hear the different "Voices" of the characters. For me, I don't get that so clearly when I do the reading. I am finding that I enjoy being read to. It is a completely different experience, and it is GOOD.
I don't think it is necessarily better than the print version, because it is essentially the same. I did LOVE Nick Sarando's interpretation of the st..Show More »ory, and he kept me captivated with his emotional performance. The story is absolutely amazing the way you are drawn into the Yellowstone Wilderness with the characters and feel like you are right there with them experiencing every bit of danger, fear, anticipation and desire.
I enjoyed this book but not as much as others in the series. It just didn't have the same level of engagement, suspense or plot development that the f..Show More »irst three did. Perhaps it is just me, since I'm now half way through the next book in the series and am finding it even bit as entertaining as the first three. Nick Sarando does an okay job of narrating but I prefer Alexandra Haag who narrated the first book.
Yes I would. I have recommended both the book and audiobook, since I have enjoyed them so much and still do. The whole series just takes you away into..Show More » another time period and allows you to experience what it would be like to have lived in those days.
Aimee is a modern day nurse who has settled two hundred years in the past. She chose to remain with mountain man, Daniel, in the Yellowstone wildernes..Show More »s. They are raising their three young sons in a secluded cabin. Aimee has insisted on her modern day tradition of selecting a fresh tree and decorating their Christmas tree with homemade decorations.
The little family enjoys a fun tracking adventure on the way to pick their tree. However, when they return home they are alarmed to find a newborn infant on their doorstep. Aimee and the boys take the babe inside while Daniel heads out to track the mother. After he returns Daniel and Aimee try to uncover the story from the reluctant mother. She appears to be of one tribe but wearing clothes from another.
Danger comes to their home while Daniel and his tribe brother are out. Now Daniel must do more tracking to protect his family. Two other tribes are involved in the conflict to be resolved. Meanwhile the family members hope they will be able to decorate their tree and share in Christmas blessings.
This is a warm Christmas novella, with love, action, mystery and danger. I enjoyed the easy style of the story and I loved the historic details which are a distinct and wonderful element. I enjoyed meeting the characters in this quick listen and look forward to reading/listening to more from this series.
Audio Notes: Alexandra Haag does a nice job narrating. The voices of the characters flows easily and the overall presentation is direct and engaging.
