    A terrifying secret. A shocking discovery has been made deep within Rome's ancient catacombs. One that the Vatican is determined must never be made public - for the sake of all mankind. A deadly conspiracy. But there are others who want to keep the truth hidden for far more sinister reasons, others who believe that not only are the church and the faith of a billion at threat, but life as we know it is about to be destroyed - forever. And only one woman - a young Italian nun - can save us.... The nightmare is about to begin.

    Would you listen to The Devil Will Come again? Why?

    I don't think so


    What other book might you compare The Devil Will Come to and why?

    I can't


    What didn’t you like about Maria Elena Infantino’s performance?

    There are changes of action in the book (one senario to another) and the narrator never took a pause to indicate the change. It became very conveluted at times.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! The Outlander series are the best books I've ever read.


    What other book might you compare Written in My Own Heart's Blood to and why?

    There truly are none to compare to this but I can only recommend a series I've followed by Daniel Silva of "Gabriel Allon".


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Davina's voice is beyond praise - there are no words to accurately describe her ability to create the perfect voice for each character.


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

    Yes, but I don't want to spoil the story for someone else. It takes place at the print shop in Philadelphia.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep writing Diana.

    It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her 17-year-old sister, Penryn, will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel. Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival.

    In Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker, novelist Jennifer Chiaverini presents a stunning account of the friendship that blossomed between Mary Todd Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Keckley, a former slave who gained her professional reputation in Washington, D.C. by outfitting the city’s elite. Keckley made history by sewing for First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln within the White House, a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and his wife, two of the most compelling figures in American history.

    It was my introduction to the Jack Reacher series ,recommended to me by a friend, and the descriptions of what Reacher is seeing and analyzing made for great reading.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Pretty much - always trying to figure out who the bad guys were.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Reacher finds out his brother is dead.

    Since this book I purchased the rest of the series to date and am up to #10. I certainly will be following Lee Child from now on.

    An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators - Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist - are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl. But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand....

    This was my first listen to the narrator.
