    When Dr. Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, he’s acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will bring his wife, Chloe, and their newborn baby. And deep inside, he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, but a healer. However, in an ironic turn of events, as Mike operates on a wounded soldier in a war-torn country, Chloe dies at home in the suburbs, in an apparently freak household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Top five out of hundreds.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    As a veteran, I am already familiar with the subject matter. I love the way the author reveal the inner struggles of a soldier in a way where civilians can understand some effects of war.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    I appreciate the fact that the author didn't paint a picture of living happily ever after. Love the details of reality without gore.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Really nothing but if you research any story you'd find exaggerated points.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    An absolute must read. This would be a great assigned reading for high school students.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Moment of Weakness to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The narration pulled you into the story and made you want to find a way to peak into the future.


    What about Barbara Caruso’s performance did you like?

    The fluxing of her voice.


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

    Absolutely. But at other times I wanted to chew on what I had heard to try to figure out what would happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent example of how God's plan comes together. We are the ones who mess up His timing because of our own desires. But, He is so awesome, in that, when He wants to bless us - He does! I love it when He looks beyond my humanity and showers me with His grace and mercy. Amen

    Would you consider the audio edition of October Baby to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the printed version, so I can''t honestly answer that. However, the reading was soothing, but not to theatrical. The narration and music was very fitting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Loved the relationships (parents/daughter, daughter/boyfriend). Also, it was CLEAN. No fornication and the boyfriend was a true friend who not only respected her, but respected her parents.


    What about Rachel Hendrix’s performance did you like?

    She has an excellent voice. She was able to variate it and was on point with each character. Flawless.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me emotional, but not cry. However, I don't cry about a lot of stuff. My heart went out for the young lady, but she had a great support system around her.


    Any additional comments?

    This was not a "perfect" family/love story. It did show how you can live in the midst of your imperfect world. It showedd how the word of God can sustain you no matter what you have to go through. I would easily recommend this as a middle/high school literature read. Easily

    Aaron Miller knows a thing or two about loss. He’s lost love. Dignity. Second, and even third, chances. Once honored for his heroism, he now lives in near obscurity, working as a handyman in a humble trailer park. But God is a master at finding and redeeming the lost things of life. Unbeknownst to Aaron, someone is searching for him. With deep insight into the human heart, consummate storyteller Dan Walsh gently weaves a tale of a life spent in the shadows but meant for the light. Through tense scenes of war and tender moments of romance, The Reunion will make you believe that everyone can get a second chance at life and love.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely. I'd recommend it for someone who appreciates the sacrifices of our men and women serving in the military. Not that it's a "military" novel, it is about a group of men who carefully and proudly exhibited comradery.


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

    The effects and aftermath of serving in the millitary.


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

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    As a veteran, I can really identify to the closeness you develop with fellow military members. There are pieces in your mental and emotional psychy that civilians will never get. There were many parts where it brought me to tears and this is an absolute "must-read". If you want to understand the military member in your life, past or present, PLEASE read this.

    Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to "aging out" out of the foster care system.

As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.

    What would have made Orphan Train better?

    No profanity. This could have been a good novel for teen summer reading.


    Has Orphan Train turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not really


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I don't know why so many good books have to include profanity. Yet, if a student uses it at school, they're reprimanded. Not good.
