    This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

    "Wonderful book..."
    Overall

    This book depicts the Roman era and it showed how depraved the people were without Christ in their lives. There is hope and Haddassah's character shows how we should serve one another with a servant's heart. This book does not hide the violence at all. Francine Rivers is so detailed in her writing, that I could smell the foul air, where the slaves were held in the ships. I could feel their desperation. I could feel the eternal hope in Haddassah. It was a long book, but I didn't want it to end. Be sure to read all three books in the series. I believe my husband would enjoy this book too, it isn't all about romance.
    I only gave it 4 stars, because I would have liked another narrator, possibly two narrators. One for the males and one for Haddassah. He wasn't terrible though and it didn't keep me from listening.

    Rising romance novelist Jamie Carie's second book tells the epic story of two unlikely soulmates who live worlds apart but soon meet and turn each other's world upside down. Drake Weston, Duke of Northumberland, is accustomed to a life of royalty until a tragic mistake followed by murderous rage results in his sudden flee from England. With a hoarde of money on which to survive, Drake hops a ship of indentured servants to America only to be robbed and taken ill by the merciless sea voyage.

    Overall

    I think I enjoyed the narrator as much as the story line in this book. I didn't realize that this was a Christian Historical Romance and was plesantly surprised. I like how Drake the main character completely changed his view on humanity. I read a lot of Christian fiction and I will add this author to my list. I wish I knew who narrated this book.

    The Mill House is a tender story of lives shattered by secrets but mended by forgiveness. Spanning over 50 years in England and America, it is a riveting story of lost dreams and newfound hope that will entertain and inspire.

    Debbie says: "Good story, but took too long."

    I thought it had a good story line, although I guessed how it would end.I think I would have been happy with an abridged version of this book. I purchased it, because of the glowing reviews on Amazon.com.

    He's an assassin. The most effective killer in the world. And yet...Carl Strople struggles to retain fleeting memories that betray an even more ominous reality. He's been told part of the truth - but not all of it.

    Jim says: "Fun Read"
    "Fist Audio book and not impressed."
    Overall

    I wanted try one of Ted Dekker's books. My son really likes some of his books and I thought this would be a way of having something we could discuss and I really wanted to enjoy it. I had to push myself to stick with part I and then wanted part II to hurry up so I could get back to my life...
    Like I said it was my first audio book and I didn't know what to expect. It took me a couple of times to not be distracted and get use to one person taking on the role (voices) of many characters. I suppose, I'll get use to it, but I wish this hadn't been my introduction to audio books. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
