The versatile narrator brought the story to life. I laughed, I cried And I felt the love for God and each other woven through the lines. I look forward to hearing it again one day.
This is a great story of love and heartache. I don't normally like stories that have sad things that happen and there were several times where I teared up a bit but overall the story was upbeat and full of hope. Near the beginning you are sure you've figured what will happen; but you didn't! I love how the author jumped around to each person's story. So during each story you got a better glimpse of what was happening. And the lessons of God's true love really touched me. I will be recommending this book to my book club!
I don't usually listen to books more than once, but this one had so many turns and twists that I might consider reading it again!
I couldn't....but I wanted to. It was hard to put down.
The narrator made the story live. With each change of voice-believable !
It is Christian fiction and I liked the way the beliefs were woven into the story. It would be nice to at least try to take some of the "try to think of it this way".
We(my husband and I) enjoyed it very much.
Daughter of the One true King, Wife, mother, jewelry designer and addicted to audiobooks. The Bible and historical fiction are my favorites.
Another amazing book by Lynn Austin! A masterpiece! A must read and I can see myself reading it all over again
While listening to the first few chapters I thought this was another sweet, uncomplicated story. Boy, was I wrong! Such a beautifully written book-I had to stop more than once because I was about to cry. For me, there are some stories that are better when everything doesn't turn out perfectly for everyone. I guess because at my age I know that isn't how life is. When an author can weave a tale of loss and sacrifice and love and turn it into a thing of beauty I am humbled. I think Ms Austin's story is a work of Christian fiction at its best, with characters who are flawed,very human and a reflection of people we may know in our own lives.
When Aunt Batty was young and her true love was describing heaven and death. We are loosing my mom to Alzhiemers and I started sobbing as I was cleaning my stairs-it was so beautiful and hopeful! (They were good tears, mostly, not sad ones)
Aunt Batty because your first impression of her is that she is the eccentric old aunt but she isn't!!
I will definitely listen to this again and again-narration was VERY well done and I loved listening to every minute.
I just listened to it for the third time and I am sure I will listen to it again!
Aunt Batty. She was utterly delightful and so full of love.
She brings their personalities to life.
All of them.
This is a beautiful uplifting book.
