Laura Holland Oates ,

Elizabeth’s voice is *chef’s kiss*!!!

Obsessed with this podcast since I found it. Elizabeth has such a soothing voice I wish all audiobooks were read by her. The only problem is I’m finding Jane Eyre riveting and I’m listening to it in the daytime and not night time 😂 love the little wind-down before the stories and the music it’s so comforting. Never write reviews but Elizabeth deserves 5 stars 🥰

Clíona Lou ,

Obsessed!

This is a new find for me and I am obsessed! Elizabeth’s voice is so wonderful and comforting, always helps me forget my worries and fall asleep soundly, and the recaps are so helpful because I always nod off before the end! So glad I came across this, can’t go without it now
