One good story and one awesome narration..

A FRIEND INDEED
Kind of boring, with George being in love with Caroline and Caroline’s brother having to tell her she was in love with George. She was under the impression you can’t be married and be friends, too.

A HAPPY BEGINNING
Cute story. About Sophia and Dermot becoming friends and a home where she was a governess and he was a stable master. She was almost attacked by her employer and Dermot took her to his home, to his mother, and she found out he was more than a stable master.

ROAD TO CAVAN TOWN
This was about a woman and a really, really dense man.

A CHRISTMAS PROMISE
Another cute story about Sean and Maeve. They fell in love in-between his time at the stables and the 15-minute walk too her farm.

DREAM OF A GLORIOUS SEASON
This was my favorite so far. But I think that’s because of the narrator. Mary Jane Wells is just phenomenal. Her reading emotions are awesome, and all her characters have their own distinct voice. It was a very cute story, about Elizabeth who’d loved Julian since she was eight years old, and Julian who didn’t realize he loved his best friend Elizabeth. And the narrator made the sister, Mary and the parents sound as horrible as the were supposed. She put the other narrators to shame because all the did was read the book, no emotions whatsoever.

A LESSON IN LOVE
Another rather silly story. Lucy wanted to go to all the balls and musicales and soirees that London had to offer but her husband, Reed, didn’t want to go to any. Lucy leaves him and goes home to her parents’ to teach him a lesson and he decided to teach her a lesson. It was too silly to enjoy.

So, no sex and no swearing and only one really good story.

As to the narration: Only one exceptional narrator, Mary Jane Wells. The other narrators were simply MEH..

Enjoyed most of these

I enjoyed most of these. I skipped the one with the male narrator, as I couldn’t get into it or the narration style. The story after that, I enjoyed but found it frustrating to have to rewind in several places because the narrator sometimes dropped her voice at the end of sentences for effect. Not to mention that at other times she acted out whispering as well. However, I wish producers and/or self-recording narrators would remember that we are listening, not reading. And we don’t always have an ear bud in. We might be driving, cooking, etc. and be unable to stop what we’re doing to hit replay.

Pleasant

Sought out escape titles by Mary Jane Wells, but this was a mix of performers. The last’s effort at British accents created characters that were not at all sympathetic.

Each is Delightful!


Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!
The British Isles Collection by Sara M. Eden is perfect for times of stress when it’s difficult to keep your mind on a long involved plot. It’s especially handy for those with short bursts of reading/listening time.

Story after story Sarah M. Eden creates characters and plots in this Anthology of Romantic stories that the modern reader will relate to. Each one brings a chuckle or full-blown laughter. Several touched my romantic heart so much that I longed for the story to continue. Each story is PG-13 and full of delight.

LOVE Mary Jane Wells... others....

I could listen to MJW all day. She makes even the most tedious stories come to life with her narration.

Not that these were tedious. All were very sweet. Maybe if it ended with a story narrated by MJW I would have given a higher rating.
