    Pushing 40, coping with the break-up of a four-year relationship, Julia Sweeney suddenly had a frightening revelation: "How could I forget to have a family?" Admittedly, her prospects were bleak. She was previously divorced, with no current boyfriend - and no uterus (the result of cervical cancer and a hysterectomy). Undaunted, Sweeney decides to become a single mother, by adopting a girl from China.

    I have really enjoyed all of Julia Sweeney's downloads. This is more of a spoken word piece than an audiobook. She tells the story of deciding to adopt a child.

    Dane and Mandy, a popular magic act for 40 years, are tragically separated by a car wreck that claims Mandy’s life—or so everyone thinks. Even as Dane mourns and tries to rebuild his life without her, Mandy, supposedly dead, awakes in the present as the19-year-old she was in 1970.

    I enjoy Frank's books a lot. They have a good storyline and they are easy to follow along with while listening to the audio version. There are some complicated plot twists at certain points that may be hard to follow if you are not listening well, but I was able to follow along while driving to work everyday.

    It was a good novel. What you would expect from a Christian novel. I wish it was a little more fast paced. It seemed that the plot dragged in places. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

    I'm a guy who just recently became more involved in the church. I wanted to read some Christian literature, and almost passed this book up because it seemed geared towards women. I was a great book about forgiveness. I also really enjoyed Francine Rivers other book Atonement Child.

    Everyone knows the power in having Bible scripture at your fingertips when you need it. Learn a proven process for committing Scripture to memory from this expert in developing memory skills, so you can recall important verses when you need it without the need for looking it up. Scripture tells us that God's word never goes out void, so spend some time developing your memorization skills.

    I don't like just slamming books. I just didn't get a lot out of this one. I really just wanted to memorize a few bible verses and get some direction while doing it. This book spent a long time explaining the same memory system I've heard explained before. If you really want a different approach to scripture memory, try His Word in My Heart, by Janet Pope. This was a great find for me.

    Best-selling author Dee Henderson's acclaimed novels are an irresistible blend of suspense, romance and spirituality. More than a million copies of Henderson's books are in print, and she has won many prizes, including the Christy, the RITA and the National Reader's Choice Award. FBI special agent Dave Richman loves hostage negotiator Kate O'Malley. But keeping her safe is another matter entirely, one that requires deep trust in God.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun listen. This was the first of several Christian fiction books that I listened to while driving to work. I discovered this book, like most book in that genera are geared towards women. This is one of them. It is more action packed than most (gun fights, stand-offs, etc.), but it's still chick lit.

    I really enjoy reading Lee's other books. This book was very easy to listen to and it gave several inspiring stories. Lee's other books left feeling like I had learned something. After listening to this book a while, it became tedious and I had a hard time making it to the end.

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Not as hard core as Dawkins, a nice fun listen for anyone who would enjoy a heartfelt, emotional speech from a woman who decideds to let go of her faith in God.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Darwin8u says: "Read the F--king REVIEW!"
    "Not funny"
    Overall

    I realize that this book was supposed to be a joke, but I was not amused. I realize that getting a child to go to bed can be frustrating at times. I'm sure that most parents have had similar thoughts to the ones expressed in this book. But, the idea is unoriginal, the language is crude, and the only thing that passes as humor in the book is how offensive it is.
