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.

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 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.

YOWZA! WALKER'S!<br />BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN & NARRATED !!

This was truly a BRILLIANT LIFESONG of two young kids finding each other and being together for over 50 years !

Nicole Ewards will open your hearts with these delicious character's STORYLINE soooo fast! I love that Curtis and Lorrie knew of each other when they were kids . This couple had me tied up in knots !!. They had so many obstacles in their way early on in their relationship. But by far I loved the story that went back and forth between the past and present.....yeah, yeah..I know a lot of people don't like the back and forth....but I was blown away how I could delve into these words of friendship, heartache, tragedy, distance,
laughter and ultimate Love of Curtis and Lorrie LifeSong !!
Desperately needed to know about these Strong Loving WALKER'S!!! Time for the children of Curtis and Lorrie to tell their Lifesong !
The Narration of the Walker's Lifesong is song by the Dashing , extraordinary Tor Thom ! His voice ..... (wow) really brought Curtis to life! I could feel all of Curtis's joy, tenderness, strength, pain, torment, adulation and Deep Love for Lorrie!!! I always love his narrations !!
And Tor's co-singer is the marvelous Charley Ongel ! She was perfect and amazing as Lorrie . Charley made me feel sooooo much sadness for Lorrie's life with her parents . I was never more Thankful than for Curtis to come to Lorrie's rescue. I could emotionally explore all of Lorrie's sorrow, fear, happiness, loneliness, courage and her Deep Love of Curtis!!
Please don't miss out on this Beautiful Loving Family and The fascinating LifeSong of "The Walker's" !!!
I highly recommend this AUDIOBOOK!!

BROVO !!
BRILLIANT !!
FIVE STARS !!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

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.

The Walker family saga - The beginning

Nicole Edwards know how to push my buttons with this story that's for sure!
I took a few trips down memory lane while listening to this story. It was very emotional at times.

Curtis is Lorri and Curtis Walker's story. The heads of the Walker family in Coyote Ridge.

Before this book I listened to the books about their sons and while doing so I wanted to know more about Lorri and Curtis.

In this book you get to know them both from the time they were teenagers. Follow them on their journey to adulthood, their ups and downs, their sorrows and their happiness.

I'm left of wanting more of this Walker family saga

A wonderful listen!

Curtis is the epic love story of Curtis and Lorrie Walker, the parents to the Walker boys. I loved the aspect of being set back in time to the present the day and learning about this couple through the years.

The narrators did a wonderful job portraying these two characters plus the additional ones that make an appearance throughout the story.
