I love listening to audio books while traveling, walking my puppy, working in the yard, or anywhere really. :)

    Story
    (40)

    In the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS), girls can become valuable property as plural wives, but boys are expendable, even a liability. In this powerful and heartbreaking account, former FLDS member Brent Jeffs reveals both the terror and the love he experienced growing up on his prophet's compound and the harsh exile existence that so many boys face once they have been expelled by the sect.

    Story

    I give this an overall five star because I believe the writer really put himself out there to bring home the truth to those of us who would struggle to believe that this even happened in this day and age. The performance was clear, and the story is true, and must continue to be told in order to help the rest of the Lost Boys.

    On Christmas Eve in 1985, a hunter found a young boy's body along an icy corn field in Nebraska. The residents of Chester, Nebraska, buried him as "Little Boy Blue", unclaimed and unidentified-- until a phone call from Ohio two years later led authorities to Eli Stutzman, the boy's father.Eli Stutzman, the son of an Amish bishop, was by all appearances a dedicated farmer and family man in the country's strictest religious sect.

    Somebody did their homework, and that makes this story a great listen. Its also incredible that someone actually lived this way.

Now she’s confronted with her grandmother’s ghost, a manor full of dependents, a pack of hell-hounds and a gardener who might just be the man of her dreams.Meanwhile, Angela’s convinced her brand of love could turn life around for the seedy man living down the street, if only she could get him away from the floozy living next door.

    Story

    I love that this book was not at all predictable. I was listening to it while working on painting projects in my house. I shook my head in disbelief and laughed out loud by myself. I love it when that happens. I wasn't crazy about its ending, but eh, I would listen to it again and I can't say that for all of them.
