The sing song cadence of the reader drives me to distraction. I can't take it

The reader sounds like she is from the midwest. I like her.

One Commonplace Day


(5 stars)

Probably one of the best of Pansy’s books which I’ve listened to so far. Thankfully, any romance is very brief and not at all distracting. I love the scene of the wife and her lost husband in prayer together.

God is Faithful

We are God's epistle known and read of all men. In whatsoever we do; do it as unto the Lord.

I like both the reader & the story. Pansy is one of my favorite authors.

maddening inflection


(3 stars)

I cannot speak for the text, because the inflection of the reader drove me crazy after five minutes. Does anyone else want to rerecord it?
