The narration is excellent, a fun listen!

I enjoyed this book as a sweet, feel-good book I listened to before bed. The narrator did an excellent job, it was so fun to listen to. I loved the strong and faithful character of the female lead, and the beautiful life she created despite her trials.

I really enjoyed listening to this sweet historical romance from our countries time when people from different backgrounds and countries were coming together to form communities and towns. They needed to rely on each other for their success as a community and survival as a people. These Simple times fostered love and acceptance. Ideally this is how we should strive to live. The narrator did a lovely job of bringing the characters to life through her accents and personalities . It made this an enjoyable listen.

Very nice

I enjoyed this sweet Audible version historical romance very much. This story shows the western spirit of adventure in a young widow who has faced many hardships to come to this point. This is a Christian book and a very engaging and enjoyable read. The narrator was able to present interesting versions of the characters' voices making the book very enjoyable to listen to. It' was very well done.

As a newcomer to town, she finds many men who wish to become her suitor but she is independent and hopes to find her own way. Her special needs child is her first concern and she does all she can to provide and care for her.

You will enjoy this heartwarming story of a strong woman forging a new life.

I received a complimentary copy of this Audible book from the author and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.

Historical Strength

The Light at the End of the Tunnel is Book 1 in the Women of Courage Series by Linda Weaver Clarke. Hannah and her deaf daughter, Sarah, are leaving to begin a new life. Hannah wants to open a hot chocolate shop in 1844 when women seldom owned businesses. I thought the characters were strong and had depth. I felt the romance was tender and sweet. I am looking forward to the next audio book in the series. I received an audio code for free and am leaving my review voluntarily.

Very inspiring and definitely will make you fall in LOVE

The narrator perfectly delivered this piece. Not just for the listeners to understand but to let each one of us BE in the story. I was cleaning my attic while listening to this without interruption and I love how the Ms. Okoren changes her voice to accommodate each character. Thomas was my favorite character. Great work. This story is a must-listen for certain. You won’t be disappointed

A gentle listen

This is a lovely, heartwarming story. Thomas and Hannah's relationship from friendship to love was as sweet as the hot chocolate sold in her shop. I loved the gentle storyline and the soothing voice of the narrator. This was the perfect listen for sitting back and relaxing for a while.
I received a free copy and this is my unbiased opinion.
