    Rachel Price’s one happy memory from her childhood is of playing outside with her father, Mitch, on a cold and snowy day. In that moment he took her hands in his and called her his angel. She felt safe, loved, and protected. Rachel’s mother dies in a car crash a few years later - a sudden and unresolved ending to a complicated relationship. Mitch’s reaction to certain realities surrounding the death pushes Rachel away and confirms her fear that Mitch never truly loved her at all. Years later, Rachel’s daughter, Lily, is the only light in her dark life.

    Traveling west aboard a wagon train with her late husband's family, young widow Marybeth MacKender wishes only to leave behind the memories of her loveless marriage, and to protect her infant son. But the dangers of the train are endless, as are the advances of her brutish brother-in-law who is resolute in claiming Marybeth as his own. It isn't until Marybeth meets Joshua Rivers, a frontiersman both tough and tender, that her hope for the future ignites as brightly as the desire in her heart.

    New York Times best-selling author Linda Lael Miller has earned a large and growing following for her wildly popular novels starring the Creeds and the McKettricks. As her many fans will attest, no one brings cowboys - and their affairs of the heart - to life in quite the way she does. With the author’s signature style, Big Sky Country delivers a scintillating tale that you will not want to miss.

    Stepping off the train in Sweetwater Springs, Montana, Elizabeth Hamilton is filled with relief, nerves, and the thrill of hope. Life on her dear friend’s ranch will be very different than Gilded Age Boston’s high society. But at least here, Elizabeth is far from her spiteful sister-in-law and the bittersweet memories of her late fiancé.

    Nick Sanders has loved Elizabeth since he first glimpsed her portrait - not that he dare admit it. A ranch hand has no call to woo a well-born lady, especially when she’s being courted by the town’s finest gentleman. Yet there’s something in her mix of courage and compassion that won’t let Nick quit.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    What three words best describe David LeDoux and John Randolph Jones ’s performance?


    they were fine


    Could you see Water for Elephants being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    i listened to this book all the way through waiting for something diffrent to happen but found the end very predictable , but as i said other readers will enjoy this book,

But that’s before he meets the stunningly beautiful—and stubbornly headstrong—Ellie Baldwin. She may not be exactly what Noah wants in an assistant, but she may be exactly what he needs.

    this is a really a beautiful story from start to finish ,the church restoration and the friendships in this town are really moving stories, loved the end result and what a diffrence these people will make to this beautiful town ,what a great comunity this town has got and there will be more ,when i got to the end of this story i didn't want it to end so scramled for the next book in the series of virgin river love the writers work and the narration is unreal,


    What did you like best about this story?

    loved it when the church was opened and the beautiful wedding took place ,love the work of Noah and his assistant Ellie what a beautiful couple ,

    I thought it was great when all the treasures were found packed away under the old church and they were able to set them up in the church when it was complete , and how the towns people all helped get things finished for the opening ,makes you feel like you want to also help,


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

    oh yes i hate to press my stop button on this book and all the virgin river series , i will be sorry when i read the last book , I take my audio book everywhere i go and listen to these books ,even plug into my car when driving on a trip .
