    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.

    We picked this book for book club and was unsure how much I'd like it. I did enjoy it much more than expected. The narration was good and the story was good, so together I was able to breeze through this book.

    I read the first 2 books and for the sake of time listened to this last one. I couldn't wait to get to the end to decide the final ending, so the audio helped me do that. It was a great and easy listen that I completed in 2 days.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This was a great audio with excellent narration. The book and the movie are different (like usual) and the book is better and full of more details. This is well worth the listen even if you've seen the movie already.

    Kyra and David Winter are happier than they ever expected to be. They have a comfortable home, stable careers, and a young son, Michael, whom they adore. Though everyone who knows the Winters considers them extremely overprotective parents, both Kyra and David believe they have good reasons for fearing that something will happen to their little boy. And then, on a perfectly average summer day, it does, when Michael disappears from his own backyard. The only question is whose past has finally caught up with them: David feels sure that Michael was taken by his troubled ex-wife....

    I "read" this book for book club. I listened to it while everyone else actually read it turning pages. There were parts that they said was hard to tell who was talking and they did a lot of rereading. With great narration I didn't have problems following this book as long as I paid attention. Excellent audio!

    When Joy Came to Stay illustrates the miraculous power of faith to overcome even the most debilitating suffering. Maggie Stovall has a successful career and a happy marriage, but she also bears the crippling weight of a secret from her past. As she slips farther and farther into depression, her only hope lies in God's loving forgiveness.

    In this unabridged audio of Take Four, the final book in the Above the Line Series by New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury, filmmakers Keith Ellison and Dayne Matthews finally ink a deal with the nation's top young actor. But the actor takes a public fall that threatens his reputation. Now the producers must act as missionaries to save the film, their families, and the young movie star.

  • God's Unspeakable Favor: One Woman's Struggle through an Ectopic Pregnancy

    Do you know that God favors you? Is it easy to remember that when trouble strikes? No, but when author Brandy Bullock had to have emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy, she saw God's favor in her physical, spiritual, emotional, and even financial life firsthand. God shows his favor to his children daily by blessing us abundantly and keeping us safe. When we walk by faith, we as believers should expect favor because we are children of the most high God.

    The story was well written. It was nice to hear how she too relied on God to get her through. However, I found the narrator's voice annoying. The way she talked was not the tone or style of most audiobooks. It was a little distracting.
