Publisher's Summary

A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon - from child to determined young adult to loving mother - she shares the turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that molded her, and recalls the enduring love with cavalry officer Captain Jack Elliot that gave her strength and purpose.
Rich in authentic everyday details and alive with truly unforgettable characters, These Is My Words brilliantly brings a vanished world to breathtaking life again.

Amazing Epic Pioneering Woman Story

The kind of book that you miss for days after its concluded. Such adventure and celebration of the good things in life despite circumstances.

Worst Narration I've Encountered in a Long Time

Would you try another book from Nancy E. Turner and/or Amy Rubinate?

I will definitely read another book by Nancy E. Turner. I will never purchase another book narrated by Amy Rubinate.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's voice was quite slow, with a strong nasal sound, combined with a somewhat forced accent at times. It was very distracting from the story, and made it quite difficult to get through the book.

Any additional comments?

I will never purchase another book with this narrator.

beautiful

Would you listen to These Is My Words again? Why?

Yes I would and will, but I was going to read the only other book in the trilogy which idsbook 3. This is terrible and hurts your ears to listen to. No Sale

What other book might you compare These Is My Words to, and why?

It's so difficult to find a well read book, I don't know. Matt Bates reading The Flame Bearer

What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

She read beautifully, whilst keeping the element of a diary. Her vocal interpretation of the prose and dialogue was extremely sympathetic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

no. it was all good for me. She's definitely a keeper

Any additional comments?

More care in choosing books onterpreted with this quality. Nicola Walker is excellent, but you only have her reading one short book
