    At 31, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At 29, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle.

    Overall

    I continue to enjoy Nicholas Sparks, whether listening or reading. This was such a lovely and moving story.

    Overall

    I have throroughly enjoyed this series, but this reader spoiled it for me. Hoping the next books go back to Davinia, or I'm going to be sorry I didn't buy them to read myself.

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "A Wonderful Book"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only problem I had was that the reader has such a sing song cadence that I often got side tracked listening to her and had to go back to catch the story line.

    Oscar-winning writer-director Max, whose star is clearly beginning to dim, wakes up the morning after the 2003 Academy Awards lying next to his lover and feeling understandably groggy from the previous evening's festivities. But this is no time for Max to lounge about and chat his way idly through a hangover. There's a houseful of guests to worry about, and they all need attention.

    A User says: "Smiley strikes out"
    "Terrible!"
    Overall

    What a worthless book! I'm sorry I wasted a credit on it. It has absolutely no redeeming value.

    Best-selling author and inspirational speaker Tommy Tenney teams with Mark Andrew Olsen to deliver a mesmerizing tale of historical fiction. Favorably compared to Anita Diamant's The Red Tent for its unexpected plot twists, Hadassah is the fictional account of the Bible's Esther, the Jewish peasant girl who became queen of Persia.

    Anita says: "Suprisingly good"
    "Absolutely riviting"
    Overall

    What a wonderful read! Once I finished, I immediately began again. The reader was marvelous and the author brings the times and people to life in a way that you seldom find.

    It was the publicity stunt from hell as far as Kirsten Rumm was concerned. She may have been writing the book about her late husband, aeronautical daredevil Demon Rumm, but she didn't see the need to play host to the arrogant bad-boy actor starring in the film version's title role. Still, for the good of the project, Kirsten agreed to share her beachfront home with the impossibly sexy screen idol.

    Helen says: "Demon Rumm"
    "A good beach read"
    Overall

    I would have preferred to read this book. The reader brought nothing to the book and many times detracted from the story.

    In the late 1800s, the residents of a small village in the Bari region of Italy, on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, made a mass migration to the promised land of America. They settled in Roseto, Pennsylvania, and re-created their former lives in their new home, down to the very last detail of who lived next door to whom.

    Lucia becomes an apprentice to a designer at B. Altman's department store on Fifth Avenue. Engaged to her childhood sweetheart, she is torn when she meets a handsome stranger who promises a life of uptown luxury that girls like her only read about in the society pages. Forced to choose between duty to her family and her own dreams, Lucia finds herself in the midst of a sizzling scandal, her beloved career is jeopardized, and the Sartoris' honor is tested.

    Federica says: "The black sheep's review"
    "A wonderful slice of life!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. The author made Commerce Street and 1950 New York come to life. I look forward to more from this author.
