One of my favorites by Ms. Jenkins. I've read Indigo several times and when I found it on Audible I had to get it right away. Felt the same after seeing Vivid another of my favorites. Story is exceptional and told with elegance and intrigue. Falling in love along with learning a bit of history makes this book a phenonimal good read. HOWEVER, I cringe at this narrators French accent for Galen. So disappointing! He speaks French but is not French so why oh why did she feel Galen needed to have a French accent???? It's HORRIBLE. I imagined his voice to be strong deep and controlled but what we got was a weak terrible sound squeaky voice with a terrible French like accent. I love the story and will finish the listen at the same time I'll imagine Galen's voice as it should be not what I'm hearing. Love Beverly Jenkins my ALLTIME favorite authors

Of all the books I've read Indigo is at the TOP of my lists. It's by far one of the best books I've ever read so when I saw that it now available in audio format I immediately purchased it. Hester and Galen's fight against slavery is one to be admired. The characters are very well developed and the feelings that blossom between the two are truly lifelong. Ms. Jenkins has a way of teaching you about history within the story and you never walk away after reading her books the way you started. She's still no. 1 in my book. And after having said all that I will say this...I hate this narrator! Lord why??? I almost cried when I heard her interpretation of Galen's voice. Her attempt of a french accent did not make it's mark. The rest of the voices were ok but her french accent has got to stop. (I feel awful for this by the way, I wanted it to be good SOOOOOOO bad).

This narrator was not the best, most of B.J audio books have been narrated by men which i think is more appropriate because her tales always have a strong male character. I have read Indigo and this narrator emasculated Galen. Also, her halting speech and monotone voice took alot to get use to. I am sad to see she is also narrorating Vivid another great B.J novel. Fortunately Ms Jenkins weaves such a great storyline that one can get over the narrators performance. In the future I think Thomas Penny or Kevin Free should stick with narrating Ms Jenkins historical romances!
