    When terrorists seized a secret time travel project and sent agents back to change the past, Ron Moosic was sent downtime in pursuit - and found he was only a pawn in a war in the far future!

    Would you listen to Downtiming the Nightside again? Why?

    I love the work of Jack Chalker, and Downtiming the Nightside is one of my favorite. Like most of his works, the twists and turns of plot and characters will keep you fascinated and guessing from one chapter to the next all the way to the end. I have reread most of his works more than once. Now I can listen to them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Downtiming the Nightside?

    It is hard to write a memorable moment of Chalker's work without spoiling it for a new reader. The premise of most of his writings seems to be "reality is not necessarily fixed and may change at any moment."


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a hard book to turn off and a joy to come back to.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the audio publication of more of Jack L Chalker's. work.

    Story

    This story was long enough to actually develop the characters and therefore to develop the story.The characters honestly struggled with everyday sorts of issues of right and wrong and gray. I gave it only 4 stars because I wanted more closure on some of the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it, so much so that I wish there were a sequel, but maybe there is but just not in audio form. Liked it well enough that I may look that up!

    In this tale of 1886 Texas, a caring young woman can heal the physical and emotional wounds of others but can’t mend her own hurting heart. As Deborah Vandermark pursues medicine under the tutelage of her beau Dr. Christopher Clayton, she soon realizes her West Texas lumber town isn’t ready for a woman doctor. Yet she has reason to hope - until Christopher abruptly breaks off their blossoming relationship and rushes back home to his family. When truth emerges and Deborah’s dream fades, she fears she must turn back....

    Overall

    I was glad I had listened to the previous book in this series or I wouldn't have understood much of what was happening. I was very frustrated when it came to the end, though, as very little had been resolved and much was left hanging for another book. I'd wait until the next one is published and then read all three in a row, as the story itself is decent.

  • Lights of Lowell: Book 1, Tapestry of Hope

    Story

    Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller are both best-selling authors whose faith shines through in their best-selling works of historical fiction. A Tapestry of Hope begins their promising new Lights of Lowell series. Jasmine Wainwright never expected her father to include her in a deal to sell off the plantation. Moving to Massachusetts as a new wife, she must look to God's grace for help to withstand an unloving husband.

    Overall

    I've liked all the others, but I finally gave up on this one as the heroine was too gullable and clueless, which drove me crazy.

  • A Good Woman

    Filled with breathtaking images and historical detail, Danielle Steel's novel introduces one of her most unique and fascinating characters: Annabelle Worthington, a remarkable woman - a good woman - who triumphs against overwhelming odds. More than compelling fiction, her story is a powerful celebration of life, dignity, and courage - and a testament to the human will to survive.

    "A good read I thoroughly enjoyed"
    Overall

    Too frequently stories are romance novels, or mysteries, or some other "type" of novel, but "A Good Woman" was just what I was looking for, ie. just a really good, well-developed story. I enjoyed it thoroughly and had an easy time following along, even through the stop and start of listening that inevitably occurs in the course of only listening while traveling back and forth to work. The story had good character development and was believable. I've even recommended it to my husband, because it isn't just a "chick" story either, even though it comes from a female's viewpoint.
