Impossible to part from! Heartwarming! :)

What made the experience of listening to To Win Her Heart the most enjoyable?

It is a precious thing in a world full of so much compromise, to find a novel that is so true to the heart of God. The struggles of life, redemption, growth, forgiveness, and unconditional love are some of the things you will find in this novel. It is heartwarming to see love blossom in the order it was meant by God; in the midst of facing the hardships of life and learning to make the right choices without compromising no matter how difficult they may be.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Levi was my favorite character in this story because he is a shining example that a persons past does not have to define who they are. "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17

Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

Eden was my favorite performed character! I love the inflections and sweet southern bell accent Therese gave to Eden's voice. Although I live in Texas and have a southern draw myself, there is no way that my mind would have created such a perfect voice for Eden!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! I found it absolutely painful to part from. Though I wasn't able to finish it all in one sitting (as I a mother of five children and finding time is a difficult thing), I finished it in two days time and now I am listening to it again!

Any additional comments?

I will be purchasing all of Karen Witemeyer's books, and audiobooks. She has made it to my favorite author's shelf! :)

Great Romance, Strong Characters

If you could sum up To Win Her Heart in three words, what would they be?

Inspiration, Strength, Love

Who was your favorite character and why?

I fell in love with Levi right along with the main character, and I can't explain why without giving away too much of the book!

What about Therese Plummer???s performance did you like?

She did very well... but as a Texan, I heard more of the eastern southern belle accent in her characters than a southern Texas accent. Other than that, I enjoyed her pace of reading and her representation of the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud at certain moments, and yes, I got teary eyed towards the end.

Any additional comments?

I like how this book incorporated so many things! Romance, of course, but also forgiveness, prejudice, class distinction, violence... and so much more. As I read/listen to more of Karen Witemeyer's books, I can see her growth and her passion for the Lord. The characters are in real relationships, they deal with real issues, but they work through things, talk to each other, and get through things together. Issues in this book as well as her other's could have been taken in a petty, silly, or superficial way, but she manages to circumvent such literary traps and creates a very enjoyable, intriguing and romantic stories that can be enjoyed without having to roll my eyes at certain parts. I highly recommend her, and can't wait until her new book comes out.

Well read and deeply satisfying

Would you consider the audio edition of To Win Her Heart to be better than the print version?

Yes, thanks to the remarkably well read audible book, but the book is also excellent.

What did you like best about this story?

The romance being so unexpected for both Levi and Eden, neither expect to find love. Eden has been disappointed in love in the past and Levi is more focused on hiding his speech impediment and criminal record than finding romance. Also, Levi's gorgeous.

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

She makes a great job of all the voices even Levi's.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You'll fall in love...

Any additional comments?

It's a lovely story, not just a romance but a heart warming tale of redemption.

Took a while to get started but otherwise great

This book took a while to get started but I ended up loving it! I got so involved with the characters' lives and trials and tribulations and was grinning my head off by the end of the story. If it hadn't been so slow for the story to get going and for the characters to start to overcome their struggles I'd say this book was perfect, but since I did have a few qualms with it I'll give it 4.5 stars.

A note on the narrator: Excellent! The best narrator I've ever had in an audiobook. She gave all of the characters brilliant Southern accents that made the Texas setting truly come alive. Only a couple of the minor characters seemed to have voices that overlapped so overall it was easy to distinguish between who was speaking. The only downside to her reading of the book was that the Scottish character sounded Irish for the entire book, except for one scene where he's injured and not talking properly! But the narrator is American so I'll let her off with the Scottish/Irish accent confusion. If you enjoy Karen Witemyer's novels and are looking to get into audiobooks, definitely try this one. I can't recommend it enough.
