    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story kept my attention from the start to the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters in the book were wonderful but my favorites would be Marcus and Shari. Marcus trying to keep Shari alive from a hit man was great. The fact that the two fall in love and that Marcus found God made the book exceptional.


    What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

    Tom Stechsculte narrated the book great. The characters were very distinguished.


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

    With the busy life I live, it is hard to sit and relax with a book, but this book I did just that. I would wake at night and listen to it until it was finished.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to everyone I know, but especially those that struggle with Jesus not helping them when they thought he should.

    Aaron Miller knows a thing or two about loss. He’s lost love. Dignity. Second, and even third, chances. Once honored for his heroism, he now lives in near obscurity, working as a handyman in a humble trailer park. But God is a master at finding and redeeming the lost things of life. Unbeknownst to Aaron, someone is searching for him. With deep insight into the human heart, consummate storyteller Dan Walsh gently weaves a tale of a life spent in the shadows but meant for the light. Through tense scenes of war and tender moments of romance, The Reunion will make you believe that everyone can get a second chance at life and love.

    The year is 2016, and America is no more. The United States, Canada, and Mexico now comprise a single, unified front to the world: the North American Union. Implanted ID chips are soon to become mandatory for every citizen of the NAU, and Trez Sleighton, a disgruntled ex-Army officer, takes to the mountains of Colorado to come to terms with the changing world-and his own hand in the whole mess. Then sounds the trumpet. Around the planet, people simply disappear.

More than time and oceans seem to have conspired to keep them apart, but Maggie continues to trust in the Lord and never gives up hope.

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

    I have listened some other books by Davina Porter. I like the way she makes the people come alive when she tells the story.

    If you were given an ancient-looking chair and told Jesus Christ made it, would you believe it? When an elderly lady shows up in Corin Roscoe's antiques store and gives him a chair she claims was built by Christ, he scoffs. But when a young boy is miraculously healed after sitting in the chair, he stops laughing and starts to wonder: Could this chair heal the person whose life I destroyed twelve years ago?

Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.

They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift....
