    Valentino's travels, truly Biblical in scope, bring him in contact with government soldiers, janjaweed-like militias, liberation rebels, hyenas and lions, disease and starvation, and a string of unexpected romances. Ultimately, Valentino finds safety in Kenya and, just after the millennium, is finally resettled in the United States, from where this novel is narrated.

    Overall

    I think this book is one of those books that everyone should read. Sometimes we forget that in our spoiled American lives there is another reality out there. This book was well written. I also really enjoyed the narration-great voice and personality!

    Set in 1640s Puritan Massachusetts, this "flawlessly crafted" (Booklist) historical novel by Christy Award finalist Siri Mitchell delivers a heart-wrenching tale of true love and triumphant grace. While Susannah awaits an overdue marriage proposal, a powerful villager takes a fancy to her. But after a dashing military captain comes to town, she's unprepared for the sinister turn her life soon takes.

    "excellent read"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed Love's Pursuit. It has a well defined plot and great character development. Historical fiction is a favorite of mine and Siri Mitchell does a fantastic job with this one. I did not want the story to end. In fact if I was to have a negative comment about this book it would be that the book could have used a couple more chapters :)!

    In this enthralling sequel to A Sister's Secret by New York Times best-selling author Wanda E. Brunstetter, Ruth struggles to see beyond a crushing tragedy. Married to a kind, hardworking man, Ruth longs to fill their Amish home with children. But after a speeding truck sends their buggy over an embankment, Ruth awakens to learn her husband is dead - and she's forever barren.

    As always Wanda Brunstetter puts together a very well written story. This one was not one of my favorites. Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed it, but the beginning was really slow. I found myself wishing she would just get on to the climax of the story. I might have liked it more if I had read book 1 of the series and had a little more back ground into the characters. I will still continue to listen to her books.

    Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.

    avid reader says: "Hours of enjoyable, fun listening"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    "The Forgotten Garden" is an extremely well written book. The narration by Caroline Lee is also very well done. Although her male interpretations are not the best, you can still get lost in her beautiful voice. The characters are well formed and the story, although long, keeps you engaged and wanting more. Beware though, because I had a very hard time putting my ipod away and getting anything else done:). I would highly recommend this audio book and it will go on my personal list of favorites.
