Davina Porter is known for the sheer beauty of her voice and her always-intelligent renditions of both classic and popular literature. A founding narrator with Recorded Books, Davina has an impressive list of classics in her audiography, including Anna Karenina and Madame Bovary. Few female narrators have the fluid capacity to capture grand historical figures and the more subtle, introspective portraits.Talking with AudioFile, Davina admires authors who do their homework, like Diana Gabaldon. Davina's celebrated readings of Gabaldon's Outlander series have many fans. She won the 2006 Audie Award for Best Female Narrator with A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
Davina's success with a range of mysteries is a testament to her perceptive approach to seeking the author's intent. The Victorian setting of Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries are delightfully presented, including recent titles Bluegate Fields and Highgate Rise. Davina introduced listeners to Cynthia Riggs's series with The Cemetery Yew and Deadly Nightshade, both set on Martha's Vineyard.
Davina brings each voice off the page and at the same time maintain a natural sense. She attends to every detail--word, phrase, and emotion come alive with her narrative style.

Without a doubt Davina is one my favorite narrators. She absolutely captured my heart and the hearts of countless listeners with her impeccable performance of my favorite Historical Fiction (Romance) series, OUTLANDER. Her performance propels this series to epic status. Her understanding and knowledge of the character is more than evident in the perfect portrayal of Claire, Jaime and Jack - just name a few. Her immense talent to deliver the novels in a flawless pace and tone captures the listener's attention dragging him/her to the era without a backwards glance, and allows you to experience these novels with all their magnificent glory.
Diana Gabaldon's world is beautifully and expertly brought to life by Davina Porter, and if for some reason the length of these novels intimidates you, try the audiobook; I guaranteed you won’t be disappointed.
In celebration of audiobook month I like you to get to know her a little better.
