I never know what combination of good luck and synchronicity brings a batch of nice comments and reviews to one book and not to another. Bottom line, whenever a reader leaves a review on Amazon or on Audible, I’m thankful they took the time to say what they thought (especially when they liked the book).
Emily’s Stories has some great reviews on Audible, for the story and for the audiobook’s narration. Seeing this makes my day.
Here’s what people are saying:
- I recommend this audiobook more than any other
- What a beautiful, beautiful story
- A sweet YA paranormal fantasy story
- An excellent book for young adults and others
- Touching, great fantasy/paranormal stories
And those are just the titles for the reviews. At present, Emily’s Stories has a 4.5 average rating.
Here’s the review from AudioFile Magazine:
Kelley Hazen’s spirited delivery enhances Campbell’s descriptive writing in these three stories about 14-year-old Emily Walters. “High Country Painter” present a talkative Emily and a realistic-sounding bird that directs Emily to magically draw obstacles to divert a grizzly bear. In “Map Maker,” Emily meets an eerie-sounding ghost who helps her save a sacred forest from developers. In “Sweetbay Magnolia,” Hazen captures Grandma Walters’s elderly voice as well as her persistence and wit to perfection. Young listeners will enjoy hearing Emily explain about TMI–too much information. Hazen’s skill at creating believable bird and ghost voices adds to the listening pleasure.

Perhaps the young adults in your family will enjoy the stories as well.
