    Therese Plummer is absolutely my favorite narrator. Instead of looking for a book by author, I look for a book by narrator, Therese Plummer, of course. She is awesome. When I listen to her narrate I feel like she’s a friend. I wish she would consider reading the KJV Bible. Would you??? I read it every year and they have some awful narrators, no comparison to Therese Plummer !!!!
