Being someone of heightened sensibility, classic literature is intimately connected to my spiritual walk. As a consequence, I’m never quite satisfied with just any storyline. When I listen to an audiobook (or read a novel), I inevitably tune my ear to the nurturing mentor who is perspicacious, intelligent, caring and who kindly extends a safe haven of unconditional love.

As an adult in midlife, I now comprehend how soothing it can be when caring parents read to their children. It involves more than matching voice tone to content. It is about love.
