    This emotional debut by Randy Susan Meyers tells of two sisters torn apart by domestic tragedy. When her mother throws her father out, young Lulu is told never to let him in again. But Lulu disobeys, and the consequences are heartbreaking. Lulu’s mother ends up killed, and Lulu and her sister Merry are orphaned. Now, as the sisters grow into adulthood, they find the ghosts of their past are difficult to outrun.

    Compelling drama that instantly captures the reader's attention. Meyer's artfully crafts the lives of two young sisters as they experience the ultimate tragedy related to domestic violence and betrayal. The author takes us through their life experiences after the tragedy and their individual coping and healing processes into adulthood. A wonderful testament to the power of love.

    You're alone. You're vulnerable. And you have something that someone else wants. At any cost. Claudia Morgan-Brown finally has it all. Pregnant with a much-wanted first baby of her own, she has a happily established family of two small step-sons and a loving husband with a great career. But she is also committed to her full-time job as a social worker, and her husband travels often. So when Claudia hires Zoe to help her around the house in anticipation of the baby’s arrival, it seems like the answer to her prayers.

    Where does Until You're Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Surprised because it was difficult to follow the clues to this ending. It was almost as if the last chapters were thought of suddenly and then the author tried to fit it in the story line.


    What about Clare Corbett’s performance did you like?

    Very good narrator


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

    No there are no dramatic climaxes

    This astonishing novel was chosen as a Best Book of the Year by the Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, Publisher's Weekly and Newsweek. Contained within is the story of Edgar Mint, the half-Apache, mostly orphaned child who overcomes a serious childhood injury to embark on a life of tragedies, including a boarding school for Native Americans and a dysfunctional Mormon foster family.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint to be better than the print version?

    The story stands on its own completely the medium of presentation doesn't really matter. I would however recommend this book for highschool students.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The resilience of Edgar although he doesn't seem to believe he is really able to create his own path. Although I found this heart wrenching, love did in the end come to Edgar.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The sections with the Morman family where Edgar first is able to glimpse what family and love can hold.


    If you could take any character from The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Edgar because his path is so intense and real, it would be interesting to discuss his revelations as he reviews his life.
