Publisher's Summary

Some things are so wide and deep they can only be told in a story. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a story is worth a thousand pictures. Birth, death, resurrection, loss, and love cannot be described or explained. We know them by touch. Stories invite touch. Most of these have been read aloud by the author to friends and strangers at his own table, on mountaintops, in neighborhood pubs, even in church. They are collected here in the hope listeners might want to share them as well. It can get dark on the mountain, but....
There is no night that is so dark
That it can quell the slightest spark;
The faintest light, as dim and far
As from a solitary star,
Will shore the heart and stay the mind
And show the way the soul must find.

An Enjoyable Collection of Short Stories

Dark on the Mountain was a nice collection of interesting stories. The stories were a combination of human interest and oddness and all were good. All were meaningful in some way and sometimes reminscent of when times were slower like days gone by. I think many even seemed somewhat Twilight Zone-ish. Henry Mitchell reminds me of a classical author.

Wayne Page's performance was very good. He spoke clearly and his pace was fitting for the stories. He was enjoyable to listen to making this a pleasant and relaxing listen.

12 Short stories with interesting characters

What did you love best about Dark on the Mountain?

The variety of the stories. Some of these stories are set in modern times, mentioning cell-phones, sport cars,and modern conveniences, while others seem to be in the 1800s, riding horses, traveling long distances without being able to communicate with their family for weeks.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that some of the characters from one story come back in a later story. Henry Mitchell’s writing transported me to towns in North Carolina that I’ve visited before. I could almost see the mountains!

What about Wayne Paige’s performance did you like?

Wayne Paige did a nice job narrating this book. He has an interesting voice that grows on you!

Any additional comments?

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

Get your cocoa, dim the lights, and settle down.

This was an interesting collection of twelve short stories that reminded me of a series that was on TV in my childhood - Tales of the Unexpected - every story had a twist in its tail. Admittedly, most of these twists were a bit dark and a lot of characters met a sorry end, but I could just imagine them being told around a campfire on a dark night, they would be perfect.

My audio version was narrated by Wayne Paige, who had a slow, sultry voice that I took a bit of getting used to, but once I'd settled into it, the voice suited the stories well. My one issue was knowing where one tale ended and the next began - so I downloaded the free sample of the e book, just to get my head around the set-up. After that I had no problem and was able to pick up the breaks.

The script on the cover of the book has a bit of an Indie feel and would normally have put me off, which just goes to show that you can't judge a book by its cover.
If you enjoy short stories, this is well worth picking up.

Thanks to Audiobook Boom, through whom I was given this free review copy audiobook in return for an unbiased review.
