    Robert Whitlow’s gripping legal thrillers have won him a Christy Award and favorable comparisons to John Grisham. Higher Hope, the second novel in his Tides of Truth series, follows Savannah law clerk Tami Taylor as she assists on a case against a preacher who has been defaming a businessman with so-called prophecies from God. Though her firm wants to prove these prophecies are nothing more than slander, Tami can’t help but wonder if the preacher is, in fact, telling the truth.

    In the sequel to his best-selling World Made by Hand, James Howard Kunstler expands on his vision of a post-oil society with a new novel about an America in which the electricity has flickered off, the Internet is a distant memory, and the government is little more than a rumor. In the tiny hamlet of Union Grove, New York, travel is horse-drawn and farming is back at the center of life. But it’s no pastoral haven.

    What did you like best about The Witch of Hebron? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed book one in this series. The parts I enjoyed updated what was happening to the characters featured in the first book minus the frequent sexual alliances.


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Howard Kunstler? Why or why not?

    Maybe if the sexual contact is lessened.


    Did The Witch of Hebron inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the author will return to the kind of interesting writing the first book in this series contained.

    The electricity has flickered out. The automobile age is over. In Union Grove, a little town in upstate New York, the future is nothing like people thought it would be. Life is hard and close to the bone. Transportation is slow and dangerous, so food is grown locally at great expense of time and energy, and the outside world is largely unknown. There may be a president, and he may be in Minneapolis now, but people aren’t sure.

    What did you like best about this story?

    That the characters showed a world where the main characters were basically moral and Christians.

    This book will cause you to be thankful to God for the small things we take for granted.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Meskimen – was your favorite?

    Robert ,although I was confused about his relationship with his friend's wife.


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

    Yes ,the way the community supported the widow of the man that was killed at the General.

    On the trip to Albany I was touched by the compassion the men showed by taking time to bury the poor suicide victim and her husband.

    Looking forward to book two.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Floor?

    There were too many to name. This story takes place in a very small town where everyone knows everyone else.The bad guys were ruthless and would do ANYTHING to reach their goal which was to keep their illegal activities in full operation .Business as usual.While the good guys Jack Reacher and company were just as relentless in their search for truth, justice and revenge.Not a dull moment in the entire story!


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Excellent interpretation of each character. His voice made each scene come alive in your mind's eye.


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

    Yes,yes,yes!

There he found a small community eager to welcome him - with one exception. Glaring at him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church. Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have ever imagined.

    As Margaret Truman knows from firsthand experience, living in the White House can be exhilarating and maddening, alarming and exhausting, but it is certainly never dull. Part private residence, part goldfish bowl, and part national shrine, the White House is both the most important address in America and the most intensely scrutinized.
