Songbird is a quirky, vibrant work that will move listeners from all walks of life. This emotionally touching story features a warm narration from Cynthia Darlow.
The story was "ok" but certainly not the best Lisa Samson novel. However, the worse part was either the recording or the narrator. Her accent was great but it sounded like she had lots of saliva in her mouth for the entire recording. She was either smacking her lips/tongue or something else weird. It was very difficult to listen to. Perhaps it could just be the quality of the recording.
It was a good novel. What you would expect from a Christian novel. I wish it was a little more fast paced. It seemed that the plot dragged in places. Overall, I really enjoyed it.
