    The Mill on the Floss, first published in 1860, tells the story of Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom as they grow from children to young adults in the small rural town of St. Ogg's, England. Intelligent and passionate, Maggie yearns to develop her mind and break free of the constraints of her provincial village. Though she loves her brother above anyone else, Tom's rigid, pragmatic personality often conflicts with Maggie's headstrong nature, with increasingly tragic consequences.

    Christian college professor Demitria Costanas had vowed to end her affair with a colleague. But she gives into temptation one last time...and a lurking photographer captures her weakness for all to see. Quite literally, she's the woman caught in adultery. And almost everyone - herself included - has a stone to throw.

    What did you love best about Healing Stones?

    Real life emotions and situations, greed, envy,adultry, power struggles. Yet compassion and forgiveness reigned true in the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dr. Sullivan's personality and therapy techniques were entertaining and inconventional, yet he wad right on track most of the time.


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

    N/A


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

    I thought that the title of the book was just perfect


    Any additional comments?

    There were so very many instances in the book that hit close to home for me. Forgiveness is so very hard for us to give, to ourselves as well as others. It just can't happen without the acceptance of God's grace and guidance and compassion from Godly companions. We can't do it all by ourselves. We must let others into our lives and let them in on all of the garbage that we'd carry inside. Take the risk. We'd were made to help each other and what better witness to give to the unsaved.Bless you. ALL things can work for the good of those in Christ Jesus! Praise be to Good!

    Candy is blazing her way through Paris, New York, and Tokyo as fashion's latest supermodel. Her sister Tammy has a job producing a hit show on TV. In New York, oldest sister Sabrina is an ambitious young lawyer. And Annie is an American artist in Florence, living for her art. On one Fourth of July weekend, as they do every year, the four sisters come home to Connecticut for their family's annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes, and their world is utterly changed.

    Stephanie says: "Sisters"
    "First Negative Review"
    Overall

    This is the first negative review that I have ever written, but this book is well worthy of it. This author is losing her appeal to me. She is repetative in her descriptions and takes hours to say what should take only a few minutes. The characters are interesting but the story is BORING and PREDICTABLE. I barely made it half way through before finally giving up the fight. Don't bother with this one.
