Nicely done

Listened to Mary Sarah's renditions of books one and two, Coleen Winton for the third and then Karen Savage for this one. If I had had the choice I would have stuck with one of the previous narrators, but Karen Savages is good, but for one point. At the end of every chapter she says '...end of chapter 4. Chapter 5...' And for some reason I found this deeply irritating. If someone clever at audible could remove these it would be much improved.

A pleasant Read

I became an admirer of Lugy Maud Montgomery's stories about Anne of Green Gables when I realized they were written to describe the same years that my beloved Mother was of the same age. The very descriptive words sent me back in time to understand the romance of her era. Now I am nearing the age of when she fell asleep in death, and listening to this book "Anne"s. House of Dreams" giave me such comfort and distracted me from the turmoil of the world now.
