    In this joyous and whimsical holiday novel, Debbie Macomber rings in the season with the return of Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy, delivering laughs, love, and a charming dose of angelic intervention. Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy know that an angel's work is never done, especially during a time as wondrous as New Year's Eve. With an apprentice angel, Will, under their wings, they descend upon Times Square in New York City eager to join in the festivities.

    What did you like best about Angels at the Table? What did you like least?

    Fond of the author as a public figure and businessperson, but this story didn't hold my interest. Also, I felt like the performer was reading to a kindergarten class, so the repetitive bickering of the story became very slow and tiresome. I think I'll postpone finishing it for another day.


    If you’ve listened to books by Debbie Macomber before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to one other book section which was far more engaging.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kimberly Farr?

    Probably once more, to see if the experience improved. Can't tell if it was the reader or story that put me off.

    In 1918, after four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia to take a job as the lighthouse keeper on remote Janus Rock. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes only four times a year and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel.

    Sandra says: "Wonderful story.....terrible narrator."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Light Between Oceans in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, thought-provoking.


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

    Good performance, although difficult to hear the changes in volume to emphasize the drama. Still, a good reader, appropriate to the story.
