    Struggling in his role as a newly single father, former army medic Kevin O’Brien moves home to Chesapeake Shores. He wants a haven for himself and his toddler son, surrounded by the family he knows he can count on, and a future that’s nothing like his past. But Kevin is suddenly facing a risk he hadn’t anticipated, in the form of Main Street bookseller Shanna Carlyle. Shanna immediately recognizes Kevin as a wounded soul - she’s had way too much experience with the type....

    Would you listen to Harbor Lights again? Why?

    I would listen to Harbor lights again. It was so enjoyable and kept my attention. I didn't want to put it down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Mic and the way he always seems to put himself into the picture. He cares so much for his family and it distresses him when they aren't happy. He is proving to be such a good father and husband.


    Have you listened to any of Christina Traister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have listened to the whole series with her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did my best to listen to this all in one setting, but it was longer than even I could sit. It would be great on a road trip.


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series has been so enjoyable. I will be so dissappointed when it ends.

    Although Sylvia Fisher recognizes that most Old Order Amish women her age spend their hours managing a household and raising babies, she has just one focus—tending and nurturing the herd on her family’s dairy farm. But when a dangerous connection with an old beau forces her to move far from home, she decides to concentrate on a new start and pour her energy into reviving another family’s debt-ridden farm.

    If you could sum up An Amish Gathering in three words, what would they be?

    Loving, gentle and believable


    What other book might you compare An Amish Gathering to and why?

    I listented to The Promise and was grabbed into the Amish world. THey are such kind and peaceful people, calling themselves plain. All their decisions are made with God in mind. I think the world would be so much better if God were always consulted.


    What does Debra Solberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The heartache of Josiah from being abused as a child and feeling of not being worthy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Man returns to Amish FLock and finds acceptance.


    Any additional comments?

    I was sorry to have this story end. I wanted to find that the wedding had taken place and that Katherine had her baby. Hope there is a followup.

    I would recommend this audiobook to all my friends. It keeps moving and is enjoyable to listen too. It is a believable story and easy to follow.

    As with all of Carol Higgins Clark's books, this was short and to the point. It doesn't go on and on and get boring. I love the style with which she writes and always enjoy the happy endings. Love it with Jack coming to the rescue, even tho she doesn't really have to have him there.
