Please re-record this incredible book.

I really want to listen to this audio book, but I find the cadence of the speaker almost intolerable. It feels cold and disengaged, as if she is reading off a checklist. It is not the voice we need.
I rarely leave a negative review, but because I feel this content is of such immense importance, I feel compelled to leave a review, imploring the author to re-record the audible version of this book.

Beautiful book! Narrator rushes the story...

This is a gorgeous book!! The words and messages are to be savored. Unfortunately, the narrator rushes the delivery of the narrative; thus, she doesn't match the needed pace for dwelling and lingering as the story unfolds. Just a bit slower delivery would have made all the difference! I would still recommend the book in that it holds such an important message for women as we find ourselves coming back into and tending what matters most to us.

Please Record Again!!

I would love to listen to this but the narrator is just awful! This is one of my favorite books and it’s a shame ... I tried to listen but could only make it through the first hour before I gave up. Please re-record!

Boring narrator

I find the content and story in this book to be powerful and interesting. However the narrator ends every sentence in the exact same sing song voice throughout the entire book. It is tiresome and was very irritating to me. This book deserves a new redo with another reader, one who interesting and not monotonous. Not sure if I can complete this book with this narrator.

Awful narration

I literally could listen to this. The most repetitive narrative intonation—I almost cant believe it. It’s almost a caricature of narration. Bad bad bad

Life affirming and altering!

Brilliant, inspiring, and motivating...THIS is what I've needed for so many years! THIS is what I will share with my teenage daughter now so that her children can start hearing, seeing, and learning it at birth. Deeply grateful to have stumbled across this book!!

This book changed my life.

I first read this book a year ago. It was unlike anything I had come across. It is a powerful shift in the way a book is made. This is an inspirational way to be on the planet, to move through the world and a powerful story to accompany you on your own journey. Sharon Blackie quickly became a heroine of mine. A particular and different kind of book. but WOW it blew me away... can carried me away on the wind, on the river and into the magical world. READ THIS.

Tired so hard to like this book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you like folklore you will like this book, but it is far from a self-help book that the title suggests. The author talks and talks going on and on an saying nothing of relevance just describing every detail of nature. I like descriptions but not when the story line gets lost

What do you think your next listen will be?

A Book about Buddhism

Did Heather Wilds do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

only in the Celtic folk stories but not the ones which the author met in real life.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness- bc I identified with how the author felt, disappointment the story was going nowhere, and annoyance that instead of just stating her feminist anti-piratical opinions she tried to ram then down your throat

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Would be a great book to read as a book club, or with a friend or two and talk through it and explore our own self discoveries. Beautiful book! I just finished it for the first time and am excited to read it cover to cover once more!
