    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.

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

    As a child growing up in the south during these turbulent times this book fairly shows both sides. I thank God with each passing generation, the racial lines become even more blurred. My hat's of the the author .... bravo, bravo bravo!


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

    I had to listen to it a second time and I enjoyed just as much as the first time I listened to it. I cannot wait to see what the author writes next.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book was descrbed to be something it wasn't and I was very shocked, I didn't realize this was a romance book between two men and it was very graphic in the details. Maybe it was just me, but I thought I was going to listen to a book about a fanasty quest, not two men having sex. I was very disappointed and I wish I could exchange it for something else.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Terry Brooks - Bearer of the Black Staff


    What three words best describe Charles Carr’s voice?

    Very well read


    Was The Stolen Luck worth the listening time?

    God no


    Any additional comments?

    If you like gay romance then I guess this is your type of a book, it's just not mine.

    Jessica Layton left her Oregon hometown - and her longtime love - for medical school with one thing on her mind: saving lives. Her frontier dreams were filled with more than rural domestic life, even if that life was with the man she was supposed to marry.… Now, years later, Cole Braddock is not pleased to see Dr. Jessica Layton back in Powell Springs. He’s never forgiven her for choosing her career over him. Cole knows that Jess can save their town, but will he let her heal his heart?

    I love a good love story and this story did promise the sweetest tale of two people in love, but trying to hard to do the right thing.

    The narrator was awesome in bring the story to life I have actually listened to it twice now.

    This story made me cry and it also made me research the history of that time era.
