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.

It is a wonderful saga of conquering life's struggles by depending on the love of God to bring you through.

the reader sounds like she has a mouthful of spit.

The reader sounds like she has a mouthful of spit. And the characters voices sound horrible.

Nor for completion of series on audio.

I've heard there are more of this series but not on audible as of yet. I'm going they will continue. Theses are loving, peaceful family stories set in the pioneer days. They have s Christian theme but just in the right places. Enjoy them. I'm sure you will. Jeri Ann: boll lover regardless of forum.
