I don't agree with you, but you have the right to opinions. We have a "choice of voice" policy so you could join and read it the way you prefer so that other similar thinkers could listen, or you could check the reader before downloading, and look for something else to entertain youself. Anne

great story for today

Love RK reading. He's one of my favorites. Regarding this story -- Strong manly men, strong capable women...just the tonic I needed after watching the preview of Frozen 2, in which the message is, apparently, that men are useless and possibly unnecessary. Pretty sick of those lies.

Interesting

We try so hard to hide our sins. But when they are found they are found.

Romantic mystery, altogether a pleasant way to spend time. Richard Kilmer (Librivox) narrated well and clearly. Recommended
