Machelle Williams skillfully narrates this sprawling story of generational secrets in antebellum Louisiana. Williams weaves a hypnotic spell, pulling the listener along to meet the huge cast of characters and hear their tangled stories. Williams makes clear the intricate language switching common to Creole Louisiana among both enslavers and the enslaved”

Machelle Williams did a fantastic job narrating my new book Pajama Paydays, How To Make The Internet Work For You. She was able to bring a very technical subject to life with her warm and friendly voice and clear pronunciation. Her voice is a joy to listen to. I highly recommend Machelle for audio books and other audio projects and look forward to working with her again in the near future.”

Amazing Book Perfect Performance. This book touched me in every way possible. I loved this book. It really will have you on an emotional roller coaster but you won’t wanna get off. I listened to this book from beginning to end! Couldn’t stop. The narrator did an amazing job. She gave the book life.  Then when she sang at the end that was the icing on the cake. She did excellent!”
