LOVED the narration - Like listening to my Pappaw!
Absolutely! I have recommended it to all of my friends and family.
This was a great story - so many good moments! Without giving any of the story away, I will share one of the memories I really identified with, which was the group of men who always gathered together. It gave the whole story such a good southern feeling
I loved how he sounded like my Pappaw, down to the whistling when he spoke. It was a super narration. I found myself immersed in the story, like I was right there living it! It would be great if all narrations provided this same kind of good sense of actually being in the story.
I was brought to tears when the house caught on fire, and the family was thrown into poverty.
Can't wait to hear how the next one in the series is narrated!
