Audible Editor Reviews

Readers Sandra Douglas Weir and David Pepper are joined by winners of the Voice of the Year poetry competition. No matter who is reading or what is being read, the delivery is uniformly professional. What's more, it always fits both the overall tone of the collection and the specific focus of the winter-themed poems included here. The pace is often leisurely, and the selections range across several centuries and cultures.
