This book was much more than a heart warming story, it was a story filled with truth and wisdom. It's about an old man writing both his memoirs and a diary to his only son before he dies about his extraordinary life as a pastor who genuinely loved, not only his "flock" but people in general. Although his father and grandfather were clergy, in the end, he was left with conflicting, confusing examples of right and wrong. Wanting to do the right thing at the end of his life, he wasn't sure what was always right. How does one really love? What does love really mean? In his struggle to find the way, he leads us as well. This book has insight and meaning into life and love. It's a most worthwhile and fun listen.
This story was totally predicitable and just plain dumb. The narrator had a terrible impression of a females voice. It was painful to listen to!
Easy to listen to while doing something else that doesn't take a lot of concentration. Holds your interest with a good story and character development
I like romance novels, but this one is just plain bad. I tried really hard to finish it, but just couldn't. I was listening to it on
Susan Mallery's stories are always interesting, funny and have a good plot. I don't like real sappy stories or ones that have long sex scenes every other chapter. Susan's stories are touching and enjoyable!
Good story without the usual bad language. Interesting characters and easy to listen to & follow even when doing something else at the same time. The only negative was the narrator. Although she reads with many different voices, her natural voice was distracting for me.
This story was good and funny, at least in the beginning. But as the story went on I good really tired of hearing about the torture and horrible things people were going through. It was anything but funny or happy. There was too much suffering and, in some cases, unbelievable to think someone could live through it.
The story was okay, but made me sad as I listened. The main character is this guilt ridden women who hasn't done anything worthy of all this guilt. Then the guy, who supposedly loves her, treats her rotten because of what she supposedly did. Her terrible sin was that, while she was driving, her sister died when she had an accident. This theme carried too much weight for me. Guilt permeated the story plus there was so much repetiton; the same facts given over and over. The story didn't make me happy or excited to hear more of it. It made me mad and disgusted at how guilty she felt all the time and how her boyfriend was so heartless. I just wanted it over.
This was a stupid story. It was poorly developed and uninteresting.
One of Michael Connelly's best. You won't be disappointed
I love listening to audible books and have listened to over 100. I rate most of the books I listen to 4 or 5 stars, but this book is poorly written and read. The story line is anti-american and just plain boaring. There are so many good books out there, don't waste your money on this one.
