    He runs his own business and coaches Little League. She drives a minivan, and she'd be lost without her trusty BlackBerry. They go on date nights. Their kids attend public schools, play sports, and take music lessons. They live in a roomy house in the 'burbs. They're about as mainstream as families come. They're also polygamists. The Dargers move the conversation away from child brides, Warren Jeffs, and the FLDS to more mainstream polygamists who willingly enter into plural relationships as adults.

    What did you love best about Love Times Three?

    I so appreciate the fact that they had courage enough to start the turn of the public view of plural marriage! Thank you all! Their lifestyle is a CHOICE that the women were & are open to make! Theirs is a committed family & that's much more than anyone can say for the majority of American society. While I am not LDS of any sort I fully support how they chose to live. How different my life would have been had my parents not divorced & had to deal with all the troubles forced on children of what is so "normal" by today's standards! I do not know them, but is't obvious that the Darger parents are incredibly devoted & capable to emotionally support every member of his family. In addition, anyone ignorant enough to automatically assume that ALL polygamists are child abusing monsters I would ask that you take a look around you. These horrors are all around you. Where are YOU while Millions of "latch key" kids are being abused by "family" & neighbors!?!? I beg you to open your eyes, STAND UP against child abuse! Plural marriage do not equal child abuse! Thank you again, Dargers!

    The president is dead and the military divided, two powerful armies aligned to reignite a bloody, civil war. Millions struggle and starve, waiting for the government to reform and initiate a recovery. Bishop and Terri have a simple plan – they want to retreat to an isolated strip of West Texas desert and prepare for the expansion of their family. It's not meant to be. The vacuum of leadership ignites an internal struggle that pulls the couple into the middle of a fast paced, dangerous adventure as powerful, desperate men fight to control what's left of the United States. Book four of Joe Nobody's popular series, Holding Their Own, takes the reader on an adventure through a world trying to recover and rebuild after a complete collapse of society. The post-apocalyptic landscape is dangerous, unpredictable and often requires creative solutions just to survive. Join Bishop, Terri and their friends as The Ascent begins.

    Would you try another book from Joe Nobody and/or Brandon McKernan?

    The story is great. The reader is HORRIBLE! Bishop sounds like a happy toddler ALL of the time. Even in the middle of a gun fight! He has a sing song tone that sounds like he's skipping through the park with ice cream. And balloons. On a rainbow. With his pet unicorn. Every character has the same annoying sing song voice. UGH! I couldn't even finish & ended up returning it for the Kindle version. I wish Frank Collison would have read all of them. He's the best by far!


    What didn’t you like about Brandon McKernan’s performance?

    EVERYTHING! Horrible.

    In this classic story, first published in 1906, a false accusation places the father in jail, leaving his wife and three children on their own. Circumstances force mother and the children to leave their ideal life in London to live near a train station in a rustic cottage. As the good natured children work to rescue their father, they befriend and help others along the way.

    We love E. Nesbit stories & have read or listened to nearly every one. This one was a huge BORE. The children I I just couldn't get into it. There was no climax, just boring mundane details of which made NO sense at all.


    What didn’t you like about Renee Raudman’s performance?

    Worst I've heard so far. Her British accent was horrible. When she would "turn it on" the accent sounded like an Englishman raised on the border of Texas & Mexico. Brit with a southern twang. Bad. Bad. Bad,
