Lovely Story of Heritage and Faith

This is definitely a good one for those of us that enjoy clean historical inspirational romances with good narration. Although I wish I would have read the first book in this series before this one, I didn't need to as it is a complete story. This is a wonderful story of culture, family, romance and Christian faith. It is respectful of the American Indian heritage while showing diversity of cultures and beliefs. My only complaint is that it was too short. I wanted to know more, especially in the epilogue. But I shouldn't complain because it had an HEA.....I just wanted more details. 💓

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audio book boom.

Recommend the Book over the audio

What aspect of J. Grace Pennington’s performance would you have changed?

Ms. Pennington has a very soft and innocent narration. I can imagine her narrating a children's book. Stark articulation made it more of a reading versus storytelling. It just didn't fit with this story. Pauses a little too long. Poor editing. Distracting lip smacking, swallowing, wind bursts on the "k' sound, dog barking, chair squeaks and a slamming of a door. At one point the narrator sounded like she had a cold. (I did not listen with earbuds, but with a player). Ms. Pennington has a nice male and female voice. Playing with the tempo would have made the narration more interesting.

Any additional comments?

I liked the story. It was very sweet. I didn't like the narration. I enjoyed the historical references about the Comanche and soldiers/white man (general interaction, prejudices, traditions). I could picture this on the hallmark channel. I received a copy via audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review.
