    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Where does The Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the very top. Loved the story, Abigaile, Brooks, Bert and all the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main characters. Made for each other. She who did not believe in fate met her match in him who lived his life believing in fate.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Fantastic. Her narrative brought the characters to life with all the nuances of sorrow, happiness, vulnerability, hope and desire for love. She gave life to each of the characters in this book, especially Abigaile and Brooks!


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

    When Abigaile realizes that she can have the life she had only thought was possible!


    Any additional comments?

    One of Ms. Robert's best books. I am in awe of her and have great admiration for her prodigious talent!!!! Keep them coming, please!

    hnny Harris is home again, his too-tight jeans and damn-your-eyes belligerence honed to perfection by a ten-year stretch in federal prison for murder. Now he’s out on parole and ready for the job Rachel Grant has promised him to help him begin a new life. Unlike the rest of the town, Rachel has always believed in her former student’s innocence. But one thing has changed. The sullenly handsome boy she remembers is still sullen, still handsome - but no longer a boy.

    Would you listen to One Summer again? Why?

    Yes, without hesitation! I loved this book when it just came out in print. I was a little reluctant to buy the audio because I was afraid it would disappoint. It did not! Kate Fleming is a great reader and made the characters come to live.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Summer?

    Not one specific moment. More the theme, which is of faith and total trust. Rachel's belief in Johnny's innocence is touching.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Fleming’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not but plant to looks for other books where she is the reader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When I first read it, yes. Some tears were shed. Although poignant, I think the way Ms. Fleming read the book had an even keel tone.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this book. Well worth the credit!!!

    Ripped from her dying mother's arms, Morgana Fowler was cast into a life of desperate thievery. With a tongue even sharper than the blade she deftly wields, she has all but mastered her devious trade - until she picks the pocket of a dashing American who wrests her from the sordid streets of London. In the arms of her gallant protector, she is helpless against the longing he elicits within her.

    Would you try another book from Shirlee Busbee and/or Caroline Kinsolving?

    Not if it is like this one. I listened to this book thinking that it was going to get better, but it did not.


    What was most disappointing about Shirlee Busbee’s story?

    The main characters - both immature and really silly. He is mean, petty, judgemental and a jerk. She is ridiculous, indecisive, a "victim". The second part of this book is a total waste. If the book had stuck with only the first and third parts, I think I would rate it as tolerable.


    What about Caroline Kinsolving’s performance did you like?

    Her narration is what kept me wanting to continue to listen to this book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, frustration and annoyance.


    Any additional comments?

    Total waste of a credit!!!!!

    One of the best books I've read. Interesting twist to the story. Unexpected!

    The surprising twist to the story. I don't want to spoil the story by providing specific information. The twist redirected the storyline and added good drama.

    Nothing. Narrator was excellent.
