No. I did not enjoy this book at all. I found that it was very boring. I so enjoyed the first series. It was a lively and entertaining read. Not so much with this one.
The Orphan Train. Unless I decide to listen to the original Midford stories again, I doubt I will pick up another Jan Karon.
Yes. I thought he did a nice job.
I didn't think it was. I didn't finish it.
I love these people and their lives. They share life changing stories while still sharing God's love in their lives.
I liked the way she weaved the story together, keeping the reader in suspense but so delightfully written you wouldn't want to skip ahead for fear of missing something.
I liked the age Pastor Tim is and the reflections he has on his life. I thought it is nice to think that we are never too old to learn something about our past that will explain things that we have never quite understood.
Love his voice, he just seems perfect for this book.
Yes, it made me smile most of the time, laughing out loud at other times.
I think this would make a wonderful movie!
Lady who cannot get enough reading sci-fi mysteries autobiographies good history stories such as city of dreams about NYC keep them coming
One of my favorites as is the Mitford series. It continues to hold my interest after 7 books & fills in lots of answers
When Fr tim saved Peggy from being raped and tim telling his bro. He was a match 4 a kidney transplant both heart wrenching.
Peggy for all she endured and how she handled it
The entire series from "at home in Milford" through "In the company of strangers" will be my "go to" "feel good" books. Thisvis my 3rd time through and I still love them as much as the first time.
I am a mother of two adult children and married to a wonderful man. I am a full time Realtor who enjoys historical fiction.
I can't get past the story teller. This is nothing like the other books when John Mcdonnough told the story.
He doesn't continue the same characters from the other Jan Karon books.
The narration was excellent; voice interpretations were spot on.
The flashback moments into Father Tim's history were noticibly darker than anything found in the Mitford series. The change was necessary.
Scott Sowers was so brilliant a narrator I forgot he was one voice. I was especially impressed with his speech for a character described as having no teeth. It was so believable I hit rewind half a dozen times just to hear that character's first line again and again. He did an incredible job of selling Audible. I doubt my reading experience of this title, which I own in hard copy, would have had the same impact.
I gave a 3 x 5 Star rating even though it was strange getting used to a new reader, BUT I believe for this series he was grand, and made the first two books in this series come alive. Read it!
At first the narrator's voice was so slllloooowww and labourious, and inappropritate pauses in the syntax of the sentence, but I kept going ... in the end he was able to differentiate the characters appropriately and it was quite enjoyable to listen to,
the story was, of course, very good, very pleasant as these books are always!
Why did they change narrators!!??!! I have listened to all the series and I couldn't even get past the first couple of chapters in this book - the narrator is not horrible but he is completely wrong for this book - Can't really tell you if I liked the book because I couldn't listen to it - too dry and not engaging.
