A Pleasurable Listen

I enjoyed all three audiobooks in this series (Love Comes Softly, Love's Enduring Promise and Love's Long Journey) and hope the same narrator will continue in this series. I found her voice quite easy to listen to and especially appreciated her differnt voices for different characters.
The best way I can describe this book (and the whole series for that matter) would be the feminine and Christian equivalent of many Louis L'Amour novels. With vivid descriptions of life on the frontier - I came away with a deep appreciation for women's contribution to frontier life survival and for the value of faith in each character's lives.

performance terrible

The reader pauses and gulps and smacks her lips throughout the whole performance. If I didn't love this book so much I would send it back.

Best of the series!

Christian fiction is my favorite genre and Janette Oke my favorite author. The narrator did a lovely job. The characters are so real to life and she does a lovely job of bringing you along throughout their lives.

The reader sounds like she has a mouthful of spit.

The reader sounds like she has a mouthful of spit. The voices all sound horrible as well.

skip this, book's wonderful, but horrible voice

she sounds like a kindergarten teacher teaching to a bunch of 5 year olds.
and the different voices sound like 3 and 4 year olds, instead of adults.

This story keeps getting better and better!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because the story line is good, and the characters are interesting.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Love's Enduring Promise?

For me, one of the most memorable moments was when Marti shared her faith with her dying neighbor.

What does Ruth Ann Phimister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I liked Ruth Ann Phimister’s performance. She narrated the first book and when this book started I was able to just pick up where the first book ended. She seemed like an old friend.

Who was the most memorable character of Love's Enduring Promise and why?

My favorite character is Marti (the main character). She is constantly growing and learning, and she doesn’t even know it.

Any additional comments?

This book was as wonderful as the first one. It gives you the expanded details on the characters, so you are not left with questions about what they were thinking, or wondering why they would act a certain way.

Any additional comments?

I've read all of Love Comes Softly; I've watched the whole series on DVD. Now that I am visually impaired, Audio Books are truly a blessing.

A Very Enjoyable Reading

I had the pleasure of ordering both "Love Comes Softly" and Love's Enduring Promise" at the same time, and was able to listen to each book consecutively. Such enjoyable books, I hated to come to the end of them.
