    Story

    This was a good overview but I think I would have liked reading the book because I could have gone back over some of the investment strategies and terms. However, it did give me some background information that was helpful.

  • By Faith, Not By Sight: The Inspirational Story of a Blind Prodigy, a Life-Threatening Illness, and an Unexpected Gift

    Story

    A piano prodigy, a nineteen-year-old college grad, a Marshall scholar, and an American Idol finalist: This guy had it made. What couldn’t he do? Even if you saw him in concert, you might not believe that Scott MacIntyre was blind, and you’d never guess that at 19, he faced a diagnosis that rocked his family and nearly took his life. So how did he do it? This is the story of how God used a dedicated family, a selfless acquaintance, hardship, and a host of characters to give him life, faith, determination, and experiences most can only imagine.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed Scott MacIntyre's story and was touched by his devotion to God and his faith in God's overall plan for each person's life. The only complaint I would have about the Audible version of the book would be that the reading was a little overly dramatic at times. However, the story is well worth the listen.

  • An Irish Country Village

    Story
    (150)

    Welcome back to the village of Ballybucklebo. Come and say hello again to Dr. O'Reilly's odd-as-two-left-feet patients; his housekeeper, Mrs. "Kinky" Kinkaid; and O'Reilly's pets: Arthur Guinness, the beer-swilling black Lab, and Lady MacBeth, the demonically possessed white cat. And of course, to young Dr. Barry Laverty. After Barry's first month as an assistant to crusty Dr. O'Reilly, he has been offered a permanent spot. But Laverty's excitement is dashed when one of his patients unexpectedly dies.

    Story

    Much like the James Harriott series, Patrick Taylor brings life and laughter to the Irish countryside and small town doctoring. John Keating's narration is superb and makes this an overall good choice if you'd like to travel to Ireland without leaving your own home town.
