    Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 - when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate - and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister", a brutal man who terrorizes her.

    Enjoyed the book, enjoyed the movie, and enjoyed this narrative version. The author is as wonderful a narrator as she is a writer!

    Couldn't finish it... I'm pretty hardy when it comes to murder and mayhem, but this guy's imagination was too, too ... much for me!

    One foggy evening, the most famous crime specialists in the world meet in an exclusive club, their minds on murder. On the agenda: two tantalizing, unsolved cases of ghostly terror. New York Times best-selling author and unsurpassed master of suspense Barbara Michaels delivers a fireside story in the grand tradition with Other Worlds.

    Overall

    The story just stopped ... The narratives were good, and the stories were interesting, but it all just sort of stopped and left me with the idea that the writer got bored with the story.

    Story

    Shy, charming, peculiar, and web-toed, Alice Riley has suffered for years at the hands of her dead mother's self-righteous family, while she hides a bevy of secret abilities. When Alice rescues a drowning child, her amazing talents are exposed. Alice can remain underwater for extraordinary periods of time, and she can locate submerged objects through some type of natural sonar ability.

    "Bummed"
    Overall

    The story description sounded so charming, I was really looking forward to this read. However, the author's narration is so lackluster and one-dimensional, I gave up on it after a couple of chapters. I typically enjoy Deborah Smith's books, so I bought the hard copy to read instead. Big Disappointment.
