Sharon Washington’s autobiographical one-woman play, Feeding the Dragon, delighted audiences off-Broadway and is now available exclusively on Audible. The one-act play invites listeners into Sharon’s unorthodox childhood, growing up in an apartment on the top floor of the St. Agnes Branch of the New York Public Library, where her father served as the building’s custodian. A love of literature and boundless imagination helped the playwright as a young woman persevere over dragons of all forms.

On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can't believe it when he's forced off the train by an outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the preacher she requested for her birthday. He's determined to escape - which would be much easier if he could stop thinking about Joanna Robbins and her unexpected request. For months, Joanna had prayed for a minister. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. But just when it seems her prayers have been answered, it turns out the parson is there against his will....

I had a hard time listening to it. The voice of the reader was not a pleasant one to listen to and the male voice was not good at all. I was not happy with this book simply because of the reader. I don't mean to be rude about the persons voice, just not one to be reading books.

I enjoyed parts of this book but I felt it was slow to start then it got pretty good but then just came to an ending that left some of the ending out. what I mean is I feel some of the ending of some of the characters was dropped.

I wasn't real happy with this book.

The narrator was fantastic. voices we're the best I've heard.
However, I did not like the flow of the storyline. I found it hard to keep my attention. I found I was liking some parts of the story or characters more than others and would often lack attention.

For the amount of money we have to pay for these books I expect the sound effects and characters to sound like this narrator.
there was also one part I had trouble keeping it playing. I'm not sure if it was my connection or the book but it only lasted for about 3 to 5 sentences but when you can't keep it playing that's a long, annoying, time.

I still love Sherryl and continue to read her library of books.
