How it all began!

I am a huge Nicole Edwards fan, but I think of all her stories, this is my favorite book. A look at the Walker family as it started. We take a walk down memory lane learning how Curtis and Lorrie got together, the trials of a young marriage, being separated by war and how they kept their love alive. I loved it from start to finish. Lorrie is a strong woman, but seeing her grow from the young teenager she was into the mother of 7 was a journey. Not always easy, Lorrie grew from each experience, learning and using the lessons learned. Curtis is a protective man, full of pride and though he made mistakes, he is not one not to own up to them. He is sweet, caring and can't help but fall for him just like Lorrie. As the boys and Curtis wait and worry as Lorrie is now sick, we get to fall in love with their lives. I especially loved the idea of the journals kept and how beautifully it documented their lives.

I enjoyed the narration of this book, it's one of my top listens of the year. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel gave such an incredible performance. With a slight twang to their voices, we are exported back into their lives. The two create a world for us to delve into, feel the emotions of their 50 year marriage and experience every heartache and every joy. To say they brought the story to life is an understatement as they truly became Curtis and Lorrie for me.

A great story of how it all began

Curtis is amazing. He has been through so much, from war, to years of separation from his new bride, to loss after loss and also happiness. His life was hard, but it did not harden him. His love for Lorrie is intense and unshakeable. Lorrie is such a strong woman. The trials she has lived through are just as difficult as Curtis'. Their love makes this story real. It gives depth to the family, characters and entire series. There is so much emotion in this book that it is a very intense story. I could not stop listening. There were times I held my breath. There were times I cried. There were times I laughed. But through the whole story, I never wanted it to end.

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel truly make the perfect narrating team for this story. Tor Thom's deep voice brings Curtis to life. Every emotion, action and reaction from Curtis was perfectly narrated by Tor Thom. Mr. Thom's different tones makes it very easy to follow the story and characters. Charley Ongel's voice is always a great contrast to Tor Thom's. Ms Ongel brings Lorrie to life. She narrates Lorrie exactly as I imagined Lorrie to be, sweet yet strong. The chemistry between Tor Thom and Charley Ongel helps bring out the intense love between Curtis and Lorrie. This book is a must listen!

The Walker family saga - The beginning

Nicole Edwards know how to push my buttons with this story that's for sure!
I took a few trips down memory lane while listening to this story. It was very emotional at times.

Curtis is Lorri and Curtis Walker's story. The heads of the Walker family in Coyote Ridge.

Before this book I listened to the books about their sons and while doing so I wanted to know more about Lorri and Curtis.

In this book you get to know them both from the time they were teenagers. Follow them on their journey to adulthood, their ups and downs, their sorrows and their happiness.

I'm left of wanting more of this Walker family saga

A wonderful listen!

Curtis is the epic love story of Curtis and Lorrie Walker, the parents to the Walker boys. I loved the aspect of being set back in time to the present the day and learning about this couple through the years.

The narrators did a wonderful job portraying these two characters plus the additional ones that make an appearance throughout the story.

Family saga

I loved it, it has heart, romance and a realistic feel to it. The start of the Walkers is sweet and so intriguing I couldn’t leave it.
The characters is developed in to realistic humans I can relate to. There’s so much feelings so keep your Kleenex near.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and great dialogues.

Narrators:
This couple is one of my favourites. Their voices is nice to listen to and they have clear pronunciation. Feelings comes through in their reading.

5 stars all around

Where it all Started

Nicole Edwards finest book to date. I love how she has interwoven so many characters that lead back to Lorrie and Curtis. This is an epic love story full of many emotions. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are brilliant bringing the characters to life. They give distinctive voices for the various characters. They make it easy to hear who is speaking. I loved how realistic their emotions were and the chemistry was sizzling. Definitely a great listen!

Love, heartache and hope...it's got it all!

I have to give this one a thumbs up! There are lots of series out there about younger generations of family (brothers, sisters, cousins, etc.), but I have never heard a story about the parents of these characters. This one follows the life of Curtis and Lorrie, from their meeting as innocent teens, to them late in life. An outstanding story by Nicole Edwards. Charley Ongel is light and breathy as ever and Tor Thom broke out his low growly drawl. Give it a try. Oh, and plan for a shower after. It gets a bit dirty.

Magnificent story!

This is one of the best stories I’ve ever listen to. This story tells how it all began for the Walker family. A 50 year love story that makes you want to find that kind of love in your life.
This is a heartwarming and amazingly wonderful story that will have you laughing, crying and even thinking about throttling some of the characters.
It’s a fabulous must read book.
The narrator’s are an amazing duo that will drag into the story and hanging on for the ride. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are an awesome pair of narrators. I have enjoyed listening to this book and definitely recommend it as a five star listen.

It all starts here....

I've enjoyed the series so much and I was excited to hear this, the origin story. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! This couple have LIVED, damn it!
Narration was excellent, the insane number of characters that had their own cadences and tones was pretty astounding. Kept me invested, interested and utterly captivated.
