Audiobook Review: For The Love of Ireland

by admin on March 13, 2014

  For The Love of Ireland by Judy Leslie  (Women’s Historical Fiction/Romance) Narration: Susanna Burney does a good job narrating the story. Her female voices are varied and easily enjoyable.

Daphne: The Six Sisters, Book 4 by M.C. Beaton Charlotte Anne Dore narrates this book. Her voice is fitting for the Regency period in which the story takes place. As I listened to her, I wanted to stop the mp3 and go watch Sense and Sensibility.  But while her performance with the narrative portion is […]
