    Story

    I enjoyed this book. The problems these ladies faced are as common today as during the war. This was my first book by Robin Hatcher, and I will definitely seek out her books again. I love reading Christian fiction. You can still have the great stories but without all the foul language that does not add anything to the message. The narrator has the perfect voice for this type book. I encourage others to read this and enjoy!

    Acclaimed inspirational author W. Dale Cramer pens the tale of an Amish prodigal's struggle for faith and forgiveness. As Will returns to bury his dad, his mind flashes back 42 years to when he fled his Amish heritage, abandoning his unborn child's mother and inflicting pain only a parent can fathom. Now he understands that pain. And he thinks of all those years of silence, all those words never spoken. But as his father lies cold and still, is all hope for healing gone?

    Story

    This was a good story, but the author got caught up in too many details and wandering around a bit. She could have left out a couple of hours of listening time and it would have been better. I love long books, but get bored when the story rambles.

    After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he's lost his passion. His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion - for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet.

    Story

    My husband and I love the Mitford books! It is our "hands down" favorite! I never thought this would happen, but we are only giving it 4 stars (4-1/2 if we could). While it doesn't contain actual "cuss" words, Jan Karon slipped in several off-color slang words that are just not necessary. There are other ways to get your point across. It may not be a big deal to others, but we hold Mitford to the highest standard. The story line is great, and we can hardly wait until the next book comes out. John McDonough does his usual outstanding job of narrating. He IS the voice of Mitford!

    Story

    This is easily one of our all-time favorite audio books! The story is delightful. Dale Cramer's sense of humor is the best. Somehow he manages to show the differences in a woman's opinion vs. a man's ... without making it look like husband bashing! Ed Sala's narration couldn't have been better. He is perfect for this story. We wish there was a sequel! We highly recommend this book and will definitely listen to it again.

Though Emily has committed herself to a year-long treatment program and has been sober for almost a year beyond that, even her mother walks on eggshells around her, fearing she’ll relapse. After her behavior during her drug years, Emily realizes she has a lot to prove. When police discover a homemade bomb under Emily’s car, and she then learns the wife of one of her friends was murdered that same morning, she knows things are deadly serious.

    The last in the Intevention series, this book is great. I did get a bit tired of Emily trying to do things her own way, especially after all the mistakes she has made. But, it's still a thriller. The ending was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend this series!

She has friends, a faux "family" who lives in her house, and a loving boyfriend who may soon ask her to marry him. Her aching dream of a husband and future children are about to come true. But protecting this life of promise means keeping a low profile and guarding the truth of her past - from everyone. The town's peace is shattered when Delanie's friend Clara is murdered, and Delanie finds her body.

    I love Brandilyn Collins' books, and this one is a favorite. Delaney Miller's life just keeps getting more and more complicated. And then the twists and turns kick in! Just when you think things cannot get any worse, guess what ... they do! Brandilyn will keep you guessing until the very end. I highly recommend this book. (A note about the narrator ~ she does an excellent job with the voices of the characters. I only gave her 4 stars because her "reading" voice was a bit too soft for a suspense book.)

    Author of Sutter's Cross, a Booklist Top Pick, W. Dale Cramer evokes the ambiance of a small Southern town in this inspiring novel. Jeremy's mother has passed away, leaving him with an odd request. He is to find his Uncle Aiden, a hardrock miner, and stay with him, regardless of Aiden's wishes. Jeremy's faith in God gives him the courage to find the humanity behind this tough-as-steel man.

    Story

    Even though this book deals with crusty miners, this is not just a guy book. My husband and I both loved it! Seventeen year old Jeremy must grow up quick when he signs on with the miners and takes up residence with his uncle. This story has suspense, drama, humor and a touch of romance. We highly recommend it! (We gave the narrator 3 stars. He starts out making too many "noises" with his mouth. Over the course of the book, he gets better and could get 4 stars.)

    At the trial of Christ, Theophilus, brilliant young assessore raised in the Roman aristocracy, stands behind Pontius Pilate and whispers, "Offer to release Barabbas." The strategy backfires, and Theophilus never forgets the sight of an innocent man unjustly suffering the worst of all possible deaths - Roman crucifixion. Three decades later, Theophilus has proven himself in the legal ranks of the Roman Empire. He has survived the insane rule of Caligula and has weathered the cruel tyrant’s quest to control the woman he loves.
