Must Read

I absolutely LOVED the dual narration and Nicole Edwards is one of my favorite authors. I was hesitant because I loved the Walker boys so so much and already had ideas about the parents, but this was amazing. The narrators were fantastic, I especially loved the accent and the deep tone of Curtis. Highly recommend the author and Tor Thom.

How it all began!

I am a huge Nicole Edwards fan, but I think of all her stories, this is my favorite book. A look at the Walker family as it started. We take a walk down memory lane learning how Curtis and Lorrie got together, the trials of a young marriage, being separated by war and how they kept their love alive. I loved it from start to finish. Lorrie is a strong woman, but seeing her grow from the young teenager she was into the mother of 7 was a journey. Not always easy, Lorrie grew from each experience, learning and using the lessons learned. Curtis is a protective man, full of pride and though he made mistakes, he is not one not to own up to them. He is sweet, caring and can't help but fall for him just like Lorrie. As the boys and Curtis wait and worry as Lorrie is now sick, we get to fall in love with their lives. I especially loved the idea of the journals kept and how beautifully it documented their lives. I enjoyed the narration of this book, it's one of my top listens of the year. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel gave such an incredible performance. With a slight twang to their voices, we are exported back into their lives. The two create a world for us to delve into, feel the emotions of their 50 year marriage and experience every heartache and every joy. To say they brought the story to life is an understatement as they truly became Curtis and Lorrie for me.

5 LEGENDARY STARS!

“You’re my love that lasts a lifetime.” Nicole Edwards steals hearts in CURTIS: The Walkers of Coyote Ridge! I first fell in love with Curtis and Lorrie after listening to BEAU on Audible, and when I found out that the author was bringing the beloved matriarch and patriarch’s story to audio, I was over the moon excited! I was COMPLETELY ENRAPTURED by Curtis and Lorrie’s rich, tumultuous love saga which traverses 5 decades! Chronicled via Lorrie’s vibrantly detailed diary entries which takes the reader on a nostalgic walk down memory lane, I found myself falling even deeper in love with the matriarch and patriarch of the Curtis clan with each ensuing year! I truly cannot rave enough about this BRILLIANTLY CRAFTED, heart rendering tale that Nicole Edwards gifted her fans with. Curtis—in all his strong, stalwart, sweetly protective glory—just melted my heart and the stars were truly aligned when he found the beautiful, blonde haired, blue-eyed love of his life! Lorrie was as feisty as he was formidable and together they were a match made in Coyote Ridge heaven! I felt all the heart tumbling swoony feels, the gut-wrenching angst and the sweet blessings that transpired between these two from start to finish! This couple shared a legendary love but…HOLY MOLY…the beginning years of their marriage were rocky indeed! And even though an honorable Curtis made some KNUCKLE-HEADED decisions along the way, breaking poor Lorrie’s vulnerable heart in the process, while he waited for his pretty young bride to mature a bit before returning home from war, his all-consuming love for her was NEVER in question. And oh how I REJOICED when this beleaguered duo finally regained their footing. The sexual tension and emotional tug of war was torturous at times but when Curtis and Lorrie finally consummated their marriage it was well worth the wait! The love scenes were combustible, deliciously arousing and plentiful, and their time between the sheets paid off in spades! Because despite some heartbreaking stumbling blocks in their attempts to start a family, they came to not only be the proud parents of 7 rambunctious boys but a brood of darling grandchildren! Of course, it goes without saying that the duet narration by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel was OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING! In fact, it’s my favorite narration by this dynamite duo to date! Mr. Thom once again brought Curtis Walker to flesh and blood life with his good ol’ boy country twang, whiskey rough voice, and gruffly tender line deliveries. Via his robust depiction of this proud family patriarch, you could practically see the devilish twinkle in Curtis’s eyes, envision the stubborn set of his granite jaw, and picture his big, brawny arms gathering his beloved bride close during times of joy and sorrow. And every time he crooned “darlin” or “baaaaaby,” I GUSHED LIKE A SCHOOLGIRL! And Ms. Ongel knocked it out of the park as Curtis's long-suffering wife Lorrie—an endearing heroine with a gentle, kind disposition but also a plucky spirit and a backbone of steel. In these narrators oh so capable hands, Lorrie and Curtis oozed chemistry and sparks –their banter was witty and charming yet also achingly emotional and utterly heartbreaking at times --and the warmth, familiarity, passion and pathos that flowed between Mr. and Mrs. Walker over the course of their 50 plus years of marriage was so organic and true it burrowed itself deep inside my heart. Mr. Thom and Ms. Ongel also did a bang-up job with the supporting characters, once again proving their diverse vocal talents! A STELLAR AUDIO LISTEN WHICH I MOST HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

A great story of how it all began

Curtis is amazing. He has been through so much, from war, to years of separation from his new bride, to loss after loss and also happiness. His life was hard, but it did not harden him. His love for Lorrie is intense and unshakeable. Lorrie is such a strong woman. The trials she has lived through are just as difficult as Curtis'. Their love makes this story real. It gives depth to the family, characters and entire series. There is so much emotion in this book that it is a very intense story. I could not stop listening. There were times I held my breath. There were times I cried. There were times I laughed. But through the whole story, I never wanted it to end. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel truly make the perfect narrating team for this story. Tor Thom's deep voice brings Curtis to life. Every emotion, action and reaction from Curtis was perfectly narrated by Tor Thom. Mr. Thom's different tones makes it very easy to follow the story and characters. Charley Ongel's voice is always a great contrast to Tor Thom's. Ms Ongel brings Lorrie to life. She narrates Lorrie exactly as I imagined Lorrie to be, sweet yet strong. The chemistry between Tor Thom and Charley Ongel helps bring out the intense love between Curtis and Lorrie. This book is a must listen!

A love story spann over 50 years

I am so glad I listened to this audio. This is my first from Nicole Edwards and I loved it so I will be seeking out more books from her. This is the amazing love story of Lorrie and Curtis Walker. It takes us back to the beginning where Lorrie and Curtis meet and first fall in love and the journey the travel to have an epic love that spans decades. We get to watch them both grow into adults and have children and grandchildren. Tor Thom and Charlie Ongel did a great job telling Curtis and Lorrie's story. Tor's deep voice brings Curtis to life and Charlie is a perfect Lorrie from a young 15 year old to an older adult. I loved how they did this duet style so they are both talking during the chapters so it's like listening to this couple tell their story. I received a code to listen and give a review if I choose to. I loved this audio and I highly recommend it.

So beautiful and PERFECT narration!!!

I loved this story. Nicole Edwards truly knows how to write a story that stirs up emotions. At times heartwarming and at times heart aching, but always fantastic. Once I began I didn’t want to stop listening. It was such a beautiful story of two people and their lifelong love. Plus, so many characters in the story only made for more characters for me to fall in love with. My audio tbr now increased significantly and I’m not even mad about it. Narration was performed by the fantastic duo of Tor Thom and Charley Ongel and it truly is my favorite audiobook of theirs to date! They bring the characters to life in such a beautiful way. The Texas twang that Tor does is spot on and Charley is perfect as Lorrie. You could feel the chemistry and love in their performance as they brought the story to life just perfectly. Definitely credit worthy and definitely a must listen. 5 stars.

A Love Story 50 Years In The Making!

Curtis (The Walkers of Coyote Ridge, Book 1) goes back to where it all began. A epic love story that spans across 50 years in the making. Curtis and Lorrie Walker's love saga is a unstoppable listen. I absolutely love how each chapter begins and the composition of the narrative. I absolutely loved the character's and supporting ones also. The writing style is captivating and the narrative is exhilarating. A beautiful love story brimming with love, heart-rending moments, and sweetness. One of the best audiobooks I ever listened to & deserves 5+*'s. Narators Tor Thom and Charley Ongel were the perfect choice to narate this novel. This is the best naration performance of Charley Ongel and Tor Thom that I ever listened too. Tor Thom did a award winning performance with his performance of Curtis. His Texas drawl was flawless. I absolutely loved Charley Ongel's performance of mama Walker. I hope to get to listen to the other books in this series when available. I absolutely loved everything about this naration. Definitely worth a relisten.
