    Four men, one calling: to serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark. They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift....

    This book is a wonderful call to serve Christ and to take our places as Christian men and women (yes, women) in the world today. If you listen to this book I promise you will be touched and changed by it.

    Even as a pregnant, unwed teen in 1974, Sandy Lincoln wanted to do the right thing. But when an ageless woman approached her in a convenience store with a mysterious prophecy and a warning, doing the right thing became even more unclear. She made the best choice she could... and has lived with the consequences. More than 30 years later, a pregnant teen has come into her life, and Sandy’s long-ago decision has come back to haunt her. The stakes rise quickly, leaving Sandy with split seconds to choose once more. But will her choice decision bring life... or death?

    I like the story's topic and found myself wiping a few tears. The narrator doesn't try to do characterization but has great expression and is easy to listen to..

    This is the compelling story of U.S. Air Force Major Joe Mack, a man born out of time. When his experimental aircraft is forced down in Russia and he escapes a Soviet prison camp, he must call upon the ancient skills of his Indian forebears to survive the vast Siberian wilderness. Only one route lies open to Mack: the path of his ancestors, overland to the Bering Strait and across the sea to America. But in pursuit is a legendary tracker....

    Story

    I've read this book many times, considering it to be the best of Loius L'amour however the narrator did a poor job. His pronounciation is right for people who are speaking English with a Russian accent but his expression is very poorly done. The reading doesn't flow. I am very dissappointed.

    Penniless Elinor is rather surprised at the carriage that meets her from the stage, and more so at the decayed grandeur of the house to which she's transported. Realising that there has been a case of mistaken identity she agrees to an audacious plan.

    I enjoyed the book and the narration a lot. I am a fan of Georgette Heyer, loving the details she puts into her novels and I felt like the narration brought the book alive. I would reccommend this book to any of her fans.

    A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Dickens' famous novel, starring Pam Ferris, Adjoa Andoh and Tim McInnerny with Edward Long as Oliver. Born and brought up in the appalling deprivation of the workhouse, the orphaned Oliver escapes and heads for London, only to fall into the hands of the notorious Fagin and his gang of child thieves. But Oliver is an innocent at heart, and the attempts by Fagin and the impudently witty Artful Dodger to teach him the tricks of the pick-pocket's trade.

    Story

    Although the readers/actors do a great job of the characters I found it really difficult to follow the story line. In fact I was sorry that I didn't have the book in front of me to tell me who was talking and what else was happening. The characters sounded realistic enough so, if you know the story really well, by all means buy this dramatization, but if it is new to you, you will be lost.

    It is England in the time of Henry VII. Two boys meet. They were born on the same day; they look identical but they are not from the same family. Tom Canty is a pauper living in a hovel in the back streets of London, surviving as a beggar. Edward is Prince of Wales and about to become Edward VI. By a sudden twist of fate, they find themselves in each other's circumstances, the pauper raised to royalty and the prince - to the state of a pauper.

    Although I had read this book several times since I was a child, and enjoyed it, I loved the way the narrator brought it alive. He does the different characters with skill, making you think that there is, for sure, several people doing the narration. Listen to this one for pure enjoyment and to get the kids hooked on the classics.
