    I couldn't keep track of who was whom. So many names of men. I never could remember who they were speaking of. I lost interest after 5 chapters.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Story

    I really liked the first one of this series. I don't remember them using the Lord's name along with the F bomb. This one uses it more as the story goes on. So unnecessary and in very poor taste. Since they spoke Gaelic I doubt it would translate like that!

    Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    Maybe it's not offensive to you but it is to me. This book uses the Lord's name and "God" and GD. A lot!

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....

    This book uses the F Bomb. So unnecessary! It seems like it could be a cute story but I couldn't listen to it because of the language. It makes them sound like trailer trash.

    Jessie is a big believer in love, but although she's spent her whole life fantasizing about what her marriage proposal would be like, reality has yet to match her dreams. Until one day God shows up and offers to write Jessie's love story for her. There's just one catch: she must surrender all control. When she does, Jessie discovers that divine things can happen when we let go.

    I put up with this book until the 4th chapter when God showed up in the form of a man. I just couldn't stomach this supernatural excuse for a tale. I would have given it minus 4 stars but it wasn't an option.

    I have always enjoyed this story. It was a wonderful read aloud when our children were young teens. Such a wonderful story of family pulling together when the chips are down. And making the most of the family you have. For how bad things get it has a triumphant finish.
