Natalie Ross does an outstanding job of narration with wonderful character voices. She puts emotion in her read giving you a very entertaining listen. There are no background noises there are a few places where he tone changes a little. My guess is this is when she took a break in no way does it takes away from the listen. Her male voices are as delightful as her female ones. Ms. Ross’s performance is always outstanding giving you a highly entertaining read filled with passion, emotions, and energy as she gives you a compelling listen.
I loved these characters their story will break your heart and pull you into their tale as the author spins a compelling story of loss, love, kindness, cruel, pain and sorrow. Ms. Holland is one of my go to authors she always gives you a highly entertaining read putting twist and turns that will make you cry or laugh. Her audios are always a must have she picks wonderful narrators who give more than a story as they both touch your heart. If you haven’t read one of stories you should it won’t be long before she is your favorite author to.

I picked this book up on Kindle Unlimited (KU) and listened to it in the audio format via WhisperSync. As always I loved this book. Every book I have read by this author, I have loved! I love old time westerns as it is. This author has a way of making me feel emotions as I read on. I also feel blessed and grateful that technology has helped us so much over the years. The amount of illnesses and diseases that went around back then was overwhelming. I also felt the compassion of the characters in the story. While so many had next to nothing, they were always willing to share. After reading these stories, I always feel grateful and humble.
The author, Debra Holland has such a way of telling stories from the Western days. It was an amazing era in our history and stories like this need to be told and never forgotten. Let us never take life for granted. The narrator, Natalie Ross did an awesome delivery of this story, with her multiple voice and accents! She enhanced the emotions and her narration was very easy on the ears too. Great job ladies!
