    Award-winning authors Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller launch an enthralling 1890s trilogy set in the St. Lawrence River's opulent Thousand Islands - summer playground of the privileged. A Daughter's Inheritance explores the ever-changing fortunes of 17-year-old Fanny Broadmoor.

    Would you listen to Daughter's Inheritance again? Why?

    Yes. Although it seemed a bit slow for the first half of book one, I think it was because it had to show all the various characters in order to understand the book. I knew that it was highly rated so I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. Nice series.

    A week after his 11th birthday, Caleb Vincent vanishes with hardly a trace. After a three-year search, he is found living a seemingly normal life under a new name with a man he calls his father. While outwardly stunned with joy at his safe recovery,Caleb's parents and sister are privately scrambling to gather together the pieces of a shattered family. To escape the relentless media attention surrounding her son’s return, Caleb’s mother, Marlene, decides to flee the country and seek refuge in Costa Rica with Caleb and his younger sister, against her estranged husband's wishes.

    Lose ends, storylines that weren't pertinent to the story and it was ultimately very disappointing.

    Love, love, love Therese Plummer which is why I chose this book in the first place.

    Welcome to Grace Valley, California - where blood runs thicker…ties are stronger…and love is all the more sweet. Visitors to the town often remark about the valley's peace and beauty - both of which are plentiful. Unlocked doors, front porches, pies cooling in the windows - this is country life at its finest. But visitors don't always see what lies at the heart of a community. Or just beyond.… June Hudson grew up in Grace Valley, the daughter of the town doctor. Leaving only to get her medical training, she returned home and followed in her father's footsteps.

    In A Surrendered Heart by award-winning authors Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller, 21-year-old Amanda Broadmoor doesn't want to abandon her mentor Dr. Carstead when cholera strikes Rochester, New York, in 1899. But after the Broadmoor fortune is mishandled, Amanda must sacrifice her lofty aspirations to rescue her family from ruin - even if it means marrying a man she can't stand.

    Did Barbara McCulloh do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I don't think she was nearly as good as the reader of the first two books. And it stunted the story to change it 2/3 of the way through the series. I'd become used to the "voices" of the various characters and then it all changed.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the first book that I hated to see end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Every character held my attention throughout the book.


    What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't know which was better... the book or the reader of the book. She was wonderful. She was able to bring each character to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!
