This audiobook is narrated by Cassandra Campbell.
The Pennsylvania Dutch…or rather, the Mennonites and the Amish. Two family groups, similar in nature, separated by angst. Much like the story of the Montagues and Capulets (Romeo & Juliet), these two are pitted against each other, until love enters the picture. Can love be enough, or will families stand against each other?
The narration is read well, the pace good and vocal presentation solid. Compared to the book content, the narration receives a fair score, but overall straining to listen to for more than a few minutes at a time. Campbell’s voice almost sounds like a whining at times, which makes the listening difficult and unenjoyable. The dragging or slow movement between words doesn’t help, but rather causes a loss of interest.
I would give the narration a three – there is effort but it just isn’t it. As far as book content, it’s better not to ask me. After all, in my guy manner, I’m not one for women Christian fiction. But hey, plenty of people are, which makes this book a worthy read for them.
