While at times slow, this story was interesting and tells the true story of a family who lived during such an interesting time. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
Yes. I am a big fan of Immaculee Ilibagiza's books. They are honest and sobering. This book is inspiring and makes you grateful for everything you have.
Interesting, inspiring and entertaining.
Regardless of your political affiliation, this is a story about family, love, dedication and triumph over pain. It is beautifully written and I love that Ms. Rice read it herself.
Yes. It was a well told story that kept me wanting more.
Vivian- what incredible strength despite the sorrow.
I wasn't sure how I would like the narrator but I ended up really enjoying her voice. Love this book. Highly recommended.
Important, harrowing story
I put off listening to this book for years, thinking, "Oh! It is just so long and what if it's boring?" It was anything but boring. This is an amazing book, written so well. I could taste, see, feel what it was like for the men who were captured.
Important historical insight
Red River, Cane River and The Help because they all provide insight into the time in America where there were slaves. In my opinion, these books show, with brutal honesty the thoughts and feelings of both the slave and the master and how much difference one person can make.
Sarah Grimke- she seemed very real to me.
When Sarah Grimke comes home to find Hetty in her bathtub and the two find a way to keep the secret from the rest of the family. It was very poignant for me, the push and pull of emotions and the ability of a young woman to be amazingly brave.
This is a fantastic book for anyone who wants to know more about the resources available to them, if they just tune in and ask. It is practical, straight forward advice on calling your spirit guides and connecting with the highest energy possible.
The examples of what to say to call your angels and guides.
Sonia Choquette is a great author but also has a good voice. She is talking to me, not at me.
How to ask my guides to help me daily, to expect their help and it was a great reminder to pray throughout the day.
Get this book!
Helps me sleep.
He has a soothing voice.
This is a great audiobook for people, like me, who enjoy guided meditations. The music and his voice combine to create a wonderful, peaceful meditation.
This is a great book. I approach some subjects like I did in school and when it comes to intuition and listening for your guides, Sonia Choquette is an amazing teacher.
The meditations at the end.
She is very real. She is talking to you, not reading. It makes a BIG difference.
Her personal experiences with trusting her intuition and where it led her in life.
This is a great book and I highly recommend it for anyone who grew up in a home that didn't foster this inner knowing.
It was a mother's perspective of what happened. It gives you a totally different viewpoint of what happened to Jesus.
The part where she is in the crowd at the crucifixtion of Jesus and must decide whether to stay or go for her own personal safety.
Her voice has such depth and she played the part of a grieving mother so well.
A Mother's Love
This is a wonderful, quick book well read by Merryl Streep. I loved it.
Powerful, important and insightful.
When Melba has a Sweet 16 party, something she has looked forward to for years and it does not turn out how she dreamed. Heartbreaking.
No, but I did like the narrator.
A story of survival against the cruelty of others.
I hope everyone reads this. It is an important part of US history. I have seen the photos of the Little Rock 9, but this brings the whole thing to life in painstaking detail.
