Yes, the story line is well developed and the characters are strong. The family dynamics are like many of ours and show that grace will see us through.
The heroine was strong and funny. Sure of herself and her place in the world, confident of her skills and loyal to her friends.
I really enjoyed listening to it daily on my drive to work. Something to look forward to.
Loved the narrator. The story was packed with drama and humor. Lots of little twists and turns to keep your interest. Best listen in a long time.
How King Hezzikiah grew to be such a man of God. I loved the push and pull between Shebnah and Eliakim. The stories of the women showed such strength and the willingness to serve others.
I would have preferred a male voice or maybe a male and female for the different characters but it was good.
Read all 5 books on this topic for a great overview of this time period.
This is the fictional adaptation of King Ahaz and how his wickedness almost destroyed Judah. It tells of the Prophet Isiah and the young Prince named Hezzikiah who grew up to be a King who loved God. It may sound dry, but it is a great listen.
I think I would have preferred a strong male voice for this story but it was good.
The return of the Israeli girl from her captors.
This is a perfect example of how 4 women can go seperate ways in life and come back together to support each other. It is also about truth between friends and how we sometimes hide the truth even from ourselves. Moving story
Story - 7 of 10.
Narration 1 of 10
The narration really takes away from the beauty of the story..
Sandy stood up for her convictions. She is a strong confident woman.
Yes for the story which was interesting and moved along. The characters were interesting and grew as the story went on. It does take a ferw minutes to really get in to the story. Don't give up!! But I would say No I would not recommend because of the amount of profanity.
The son and how he grew in size and understanding.
The end of the story.
Every Family Has Secrets
Extremely violent and discriptive.
Richard has a good reading voice and reads the horrific details with just the right amout of menace.
I did not "enjoy" this book. It is not a story I would recommend.
Yes it was entertaining and fun to listen to.
Great listen on my ride across the country. Kept me guessing up until the end. I liked it.
I love Kristen Hannah. I have listened to many of her books and will search them out when I have a long trip. This book, however, was rather tedious and predictible. There was so much detail that i found myself drifting and having to back up the recording.
I would say it was way below the norm for her books. The attempt to make the female lead into this gung ho soldier did not work for me.
This book was drawn out and exceedingly dull. There was so much detail that the few moments of interest that did occur were difficult to wait for.
