    Six-time Christy Award winner Lynn Austin has won a loyal following for her inspiring historical fiction. In Wonderland Creek, young Chicago-area librarian Alice Grace Ripley is left heartbroken when her fiancé breaks up with her just as the Great Depression forces her out of a job. To escape the local gossip, Alice volunteers to deliver donated books to a library in rural Kentucky. There she discovers that God still has a plan for her after all.

  • Seven Days That Divide the World: The Beginning According to Genesis and Science

    What did the writer of Genesis mean by "the first day"? Is it a literal week or a series of time periods? If I believe that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, am I denying the authority of Scripture?In response to the continuing controversy over the interpretation of the creation narrative in Genesis, John Lennox proposes a succinct method of reading and interpreting the first chapters of Genesis without discounting either science or Scripture.

    Would you listen to Seven Days That Divide the World again? Why?

    Love this book. John Lennox is very informative and I appreciate his insights and overview of the issue. It's making me think through what I've believed and how to critically analyze scientific discovery in conjunction with Biblical revelation.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick Lawlor?

    Frank Muller. I had to turn this book off the first time I tried to listen as I found Patrick Lawlor so difficult to listen to. It was so off-putting that I couldn't proceed. After awhile, my fascination with hearing the content superseded my frustration with the narrator's voice, and I am enjoying the content immensely. However, I do not care for his style of narrating.

    After years of watching his children and grandchildren wander from their faith, Iddo's prayers are answered: King Cyrus is allowing God's chosen people to return to Jerusalem. Jubilant, he joyfully prepares for their departure, only to learn that his family, grown comfortable in the pagan culture of Babylon, wants to remain. Zechariah, Iddo's oldest grandson, feels torn between his grandfather's ancient beliefs and the comfort and success his father enjoys in Babylon. But he soon begins to hear the voice of God, encouraging him to return to the land given to his forefathers.

    What made the experience of listening to Return to Me the most enjoyable?

    Lynn Austin's historical Biblical fiction has a way of bringing the Biblical history and prophecy narratives to life. So many things I've read and just passed by are contextualized in a way that makes me want to re-read and get a more full bodied grasp of the story lines. This narrator is one of my all-time favorites. Just an absolute pleasure on all levels.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zechariah. Just understanding the process of a young boy being called to become a priest and prophet and following this progression, imagining what that would have been like, makes it so much more tangible and accessible to my spirit.


    What about Suzanne Toren’s performance did you like?

    The incredible inflection and tone of her voice, excellent ability to sound like various characters and so lovely to the ear. She enhances the reading of the book.


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

    Almost weeping with joy and amazement over the victories God brings after such harrowing challenges.

    Discover Hudson Taylor, a pioneer missionary to China, who suffered tribulation, hardship, poverty, and misunderstanding. But at his heart, he loved the Chinese people and learned through his misfortunes to trust God completely. Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret is a stirring biography that challenges you to live a life of faith.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret the most enjoyable?

    The story of Hudson's spiritual journey is life changing and profound. It is spiritually stimulating, inspiring, and deeply instructive and challenging. His secret of total surrender to God is one I have found similar expressions of in the biographies of Oswald Chambers, Henrietta Mears, & Eric Liddell. Very worth listening to and one I will return to over and over again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret?

    the moment when he decided to give up his way of life and dress and to completely immerse into Chinese (uncomfortable) dress and way of life. Also, the realization that he could never handle life without complete surrender to God and by faith, living in the power of His Spirit.


    Which character – as performed by Raymond Todd – was your favorite?

    Hudson

    Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on local homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief…until her brother is caught in the middle of a murder investigation - the victim is his ex-wife. As her brother is tried and convicted in the media, and bloggers have a field day, Cathy wonders if she should have taken the threat more seriously.

    If you could sum up Truth-Stained Lies in three words, what would they be?

    easy listening intrigue


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gabrielle de Cuir’s performances?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Perfect for a vacation, easy listening, intriguing story to listen to and let your mind rest. The narrator was really hard for me to listen to though. Her accents were so bad as to be distracting and especially her rendition of Jackson, the little boy - really really bad. Loved the storyline and plot was engaging. Wish they screened the narrators better.
