Cathy does it again!. Being Welsh with Irish ancestors,as we all claim to have,brings you in again to the laughter and love of ordinary family life.Carolin Lennon translates Cathy's books with outstanding feeling for what the author wants to portray.Well done to both.cant wait for my next credit from audible.

The narrator in these Nora Roberts trilogy is one of the best.The cousins O"Dwyer Dark Witch,would have been much better to listen to had she narrated all of Them. I suggest that if you have any more Irish stories she should narrate or search for eloquent people who can annunciation and do different accents,.D.Wallace

I have the trilogy in my ebooks. I was delighted to find them in audible . However the narrator in this book was better than the first,why does Audible have American narrators trying to do Irish accents.this I have found so unprofessional. I am Welsh my son and myself consider ourselves of far better Irish Accents than the people you employ. This is not the first time That I have been disappointed.Only the first time I have submitted a Review. However the narrators doing Welsh Accents are Perfect for the areas that the stories come from. So Well done on those books.D.Wallace Great fan of Audible.
