I had heard about the movie, but wanted to read the original story before seeing the movie. I am disappointed that the "Hollywood" version of the movie doesn't tell the TRUTH about how important Kim and Krickitt's faith and belief in God helped them to get thru this incredible, yet miraculous 7 year period following Krickitt's severe head injury. This story is ALL about FAITH, BELIEF, promise, comittment, etc...how can Hollywood leave that out?
The way the extended families helped out and supported this newly married couple.
John McLain is an excellent reader. He doesn't put too much drama into his voice in the annoying way that some readers do. The volume stays constant, so this is a wonderful for listening to in a car while driving.
Until DEATH do we part!
When people VOW at a marriage ceremony to LOVE, in sickness and in health, until death do we part - they really don't know what they are comitting to and what those VOWS might really mean. This couple stayed together, thru sickness and health after just a few weeks of marriage. The MOVIE doesn't lend justice to the part this couple's faith and trust in GOD played in their struggle. Hopefully, the Movie will lead people to reading the true story or listening to it on this audio book.
This is the third book that I've listened to and I enjoyed this one the most. The story continues with a very postive Christian message with a historical narrative that is biblically based and accurate. I enjoyed the performance.
Very professional reader
the continued Christian message that faith in Jesus can overcome all obstacles.
The Character of Hadassa is my favorite
Wish the author woud quit using the word "SARDONIC" ...way overused.
the "Christian LIGHT" philosophy....very predictable and not much spiritual depth.
Good narrator, just didn't have much of a story to work with.
The message of Father's taking responsibility, MEN BEING MEN and guiding their families to spiritual truth is good, but it's all about what GOD can do for ME, no deep Christian teaching. Very "protestant" - in theology.
Nice hopeful story - shallow theology, without substance. This is a "JESUS LOVES ME" kind of book for beginners. Prayer gets the characters thru some tough times. Church is all about fellowship and friends, but not about giving back to GOD. The men are there to guide and help the younger men and that's a good message. The action of publicly taking responsibility in an oath type of ceremony is fine and full of emotion if your faith is based on emotions and social peer group.
I love listening to this kind of story. The author is excellent at discribing the landscape, charactors and animals of Africa.
This is a story about Beryl Markham, the author.
Excellent Narrator - one of my favorite voices on Audible.
No - best if absorbed in small chunks.
Very enjoyable story. If you are a PETA person, you won't appreciate the fact that the author was a pilot for Elephant hunters when it was legal in Africa. The story jumps around a bit, so you don't get a feel for the author's age and I lost track of dates, so a bit hard to follow.
I didn't know what to expect when listening to this
The author uses the word
I enjoy listening to books on my iphone more than reading because of the convenience. I usually listen while traveling in my car.
Personal experience of the Bi-polar author and her struggles with depression during her husband's illness and death.
She is an excellent reader - not too emotional or dramatic, pleasant to listen to.
I can rarely listen to a book in one sitting - I usually
This book is a sequel to Dr. Jamison's book -
