    As foreclosure fragments her family, five-year-old Mildred and her three siblings find refuge with her grandparents enjoying a modest retirement. When the "little heathens" flush the seniors and their child-rearing skills out of retirement, the grandparents deploy tough but loving bedtime schedules, Bible and prayer routines, and plenty of character-building chores. Having no electricity or indoor plumbing and with little heat or money on the farm, Mildred learns to find joy in the priceless blessings of life.

    Love this story! Only reason I didn't give a 5 star is because some parts are better in the written forum. Recipes are hard to write down while I'm driving!! If people had grown up in this way of living, I believe the world would be a better place.

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Overall

    I laughed and cried listening to this story. It's so well written and told by the narrator. I loved this story. It re-inforces by belief in the "Southern Hospitality" and kindness of others. More please, Beth!

    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.

    "So accurate!"
    Overall

    I grew up in the 50's/60's, in what was considered middle class. I remember having a black woman helping out at home. Her name was Ethel. Loved her so much! She made us snow milk. Would like to find that recipe. Never remember her being "different". I swear she could see through the walls when she would call from the kitchen, telling us to stop doing something we weren't suppose to be doing. She was part of our family. Loved the book, even though, I wasn't aware of how divided the races were. A real eye-opener.

  • Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog

    Story
    (184)

    Ted Kerasote met and adopted Merle, a Labrador mix, while he was on a camping trip. Merle had been living in the wild, and after taking the dog home with him to Wyoming, Kerasote soon realized that Merle could not adjust to inhabiting exclusively the human world. So he put a door in his house to let Merle live both outside and in. A deeply touching portrait of a remarkable animal, Merle's Door explores the issues that all animals and their human companions face.

    John says: "The Best Audio Book I've ever listened to"
    "Like a science class"
    Overall

    While the interactions between author and Merle were funny and interesting, most of the story was about research of animal behavior. It was so boring, I couldn't finish the book. I was very disappointed.

    Story

    In Hold Me Tight, Dr. Johnson shares her groundbreaking and remarkably successful program for creating stronger, more secure relationships. The message of Hold Me Tight is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, making grand romantic gestures, or experimenting with new sexual positions. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship.

    Anne Marie says: "Unique book for couples and therapists"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    Unless you like test results in a statistical format, this book has got to be one of the most boring books I have ever heard or read. Tried to get past the first hour or so but couldn't follow what writer was trying to portray.
