    In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to the age before electricity, Deni Branning's career ambitions have vanished. She's not about to let her dream of marriage go as well. But keeping it alive will require extraordinary measures. Yesterday's world is gone. All Deni and her family have left is each other and their neighbors. Their little community will either stand or fall together. But they're only beginning to realize that, and trust doesn't come easily.

    Story

    Books like that make me feel good about being an actual Christian!

    It's not so simple for most of us to be Christians especially in hard times. the characters reflect what happens when the Bible has to be applied in real life situations especially when your own survival is at stake.

    Christians also experience shame, pride, and fear. We're trying to live our lives as Christ would. The Branning family in this book struggled with this and it made me glad to know I'm not alone.

    The author is a true novelist and makes the book humorous, amorous and a blessing to those who read it.

    I love the series!

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    I hate history, and i hate long books. This book is long and is about historic events, but it's SO good! it intertwines these families and their love lives and romance, and attitudes, that only Ken Follet could write! he makes me want to go back to the 1940s even just for a moment!

    John lee's Narration was superb, the voices, the accents, the attitude! i love this book~!

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Gayle Saunders and Patricia Reid have been lifelong friends, as close as sisters. When they were teens, their dreams led them down separate paths and away from each other. But they have reunited as adults, drawn back together by a bond of friendship that stood the test of time.

    Story

    I chose this book because i fell in love with the characters from "tryin to sleep in the bed you made" and the narrator.
    this narration was awful all the characters sounded the same. high pitched distinctions for the kid characters in the book seemed a bit forced.

    I really just wanted to find out what happened to Gayle and Pat, but couldn't even get through it :( sorry ladies.

    The beloved #1 Essence best-selling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters yet. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they're pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards.

    Jenny Blake has a theory about life: big decisions often don't amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform everything. Her theory proves true the summer she's 14, when she makes the decision to pick up a penny embedded in asphalt and consequently ends up stopping a robbery, getting a job, and meeting someone who changes her life forever: Miss Shaw.

    Ths Book spoke to my inner child and made me love God again. Knowing that someone else could've have survived that life and move forward made me hopeful. Jesus must love me. This book reminded me of that.
