I don't usually read reviews of my narration. But I happened to look at a comment from a listener, and here is what I saw: "I would listen to Nicola Barber read the label off a soup can, that is how much I like her voice."
I don't think I've ever been more delighted :-)

CALL THE MIDWIFE: SHADOWS OF THE WORKHOUSE
Jennifer Worth, Read by Nicola Barber • Unabridged • MAY 2014
Nicola Barber's rich English accent captivates from the opening lines of Worth's second memoir of life in London's slums just after WWII. Listeners familiar with the popular PBS series of the same name will recognize people and events--and with plenty of extra detail, this audiobook offers wide appeal to newcomers as well. Barber delivers all the author's compassion, frustration, and humor in a genuine, convincing manner. She effectively differentiates characters through shifts in diction and tone, a highlight being her delivery of the Cockney speech unique to this area. There's less about midwifery here than in the televised version,but this is still a moving and memorable account of a special time and place.
Great news! Audible Studio’s multi-cast production of "Rip-Off" is a finalist for a 2014 Audie Award in the Original Work category! I am delighted to have been nominated along with such a talented group of narrators!
I know you all need help to install your child car seat properly. So I thought I would offer the assistance you require ;-)
