    Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for. Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer.

    "In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I dont think of myself as a victim. I survived...."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Stolen Life to be better than the print version?

    Yes because in the print version you do not get to hear the raw emotions Jaycee puts into the reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Stolen Life?

    When the ants came into her shed.


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

    Her personal tragedy and triumph. You get to hear the changes in her voice that this tragedy is not all that her life is about. there is so much more to this young women!


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

    No, I work with abused children every day and while this book caught me off guard with the abuse Jaycee suffered prior to the kidnapping, the abuse suffered at the hands of this man and his wife was not jaw dropping for me.


    Any additional comments?

    My sincerest thanks for the author for being so open in her retelling of this awful event in her life. NO ONE should ever have to suffer from the mental abuse when a parent takes a new partner. My heart breaks for the failures Jaycee endured from the legal system and it's inability to properly manage this abuser. That said Congratulations to Jaycee for overcoming the odds and adjusting to a world so different from all that you knew. Stay in counseling as you have issues you are not done with and may God Bless you and your girls. To the public, this book was definitely a part of Jaycee's recovery efforts and will open your eyes to a deviant mind of which there are many in our world.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    If you could sum up American Sniper in three words, what would they be?

    Personal, intense, real!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of American Sniper?

    When KYLE traded places with the Justin and then Justin was shot.


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

    The vocal inflections and the voice of Taya. I would have made her stronger.


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

    Chris Kyles intense acknowledgement of his christianity. With all the F words punctuating the rest of this story he proudly demonstrated how much his life depended on this faith.


    Any additional comments?

    The language is a barrior, I was listening to this while working! However if you can stomache the word, it is a true to life story of a real american hero, husband and father. Thanks Chris for a great book, may your family be sustained here on earth until you meet again in heaven!

But he has an idea that might: he will stage the ultimate reality show. With his true agenda hidden, he auditions followers from all the world's major religions, inviting them to the trial of their lives on a remote island, where they must defend their beliefs against spiritual challenges. Oliver Finney, a feisty old judge with his own secrets, is chosen to defend Christianity. As the program takes a strange twist, he realizes he is trapped in a game of deadly agendas that may cost him his life.

    Yes, I have listened to it twice already and enjoyed the storyline.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No


    Which character – as performed by John McLain – was your favorite?

    The Judge himself. Old, crotchety, reminds me of some local judiciary!
