“Nicola Barber’s narration is well done, she has many different accents in this book from Irish to American to a little Italian, and her male voices are also very good. I enjoyed her narration and I think it added to my enjoyment of this book.” ~ Miss Susie

  • Until the End of the World by Sarah Lyons Fleming; Narrated by Julia Whelan from Podium Publishing

“Julie Whelan’s narration is well done, I enjoyed her many female voices, however at times her male voices muddled together, especially when Nelly and John are talking and Nelly’s accent isn’t as pronounced I wasn’t sure which man was talking. I did enjoy her narration very much as I always do and love her regular talking voice, and the whininess of Anna was good and not overdone to be annoying, well any more annoying the character of Anna is!” ~ Miss Susie

  • Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon; Narrated by Davina Porter from Recorded Books
  • Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim; Narrated by Bahni Turpin from Brilliance Publishing

“I read this book in print back in 2012 and if I remember right I read it in Bahni’s voice so was very happy to listen to the real thing. Bahni Turpin’s narration was amazing; she is such a great narrator. Every character has their own voice and her male voices are great too.  She makes this story come to life and embodies every character and makes them real.” ~ Miss Susie
