    As manager of an elementary school cafeteria, middle-aged Margaret Tuttle is objective and self-contained. She has no interest in emotions or attachments to those around her. But when Birdie Freeman begins to work for Margaret, things begin to change. With her childlike, unselfish, Christian love, Birdie touches everyone she meets. Soon, Margaret's heart opens in spite of her resolve to remain aloof.

    Jamie Langston Turner is one of the best authors I've ever "read." I'm still in the process of "reading" this book, but I can hardly wait to get back to it. I will tell you that this book is connected with the other 2 books. I hope Ms. Turner writes another book soon!

    When Ellen Wakefield O'Connor is confronted by a young man armed with a birth certificate that mistakenly names her as his mother, she quickly sorts out the truth: His birth mother listed Ellen on the certificate to cover up her own identity, but also because Ellen is, in a way, related to the child. The birth father is Ellen's troubled husband, Tom. The secrets of the past soon engulf Ellen, Tom, and everyone they love. This drama of love, loss, family and betrayal will capture listeners with its unforgettable power.

    This book should NOT be included in the Religious section of Audible. There was bad language, (using God's name in vain) in the very first chapter. I never got any further than that. I'm hoping I can get my Credit back to use for a better book.

    Very, very disappointing! If you're a true Christian, don't waste your time and money on this book. You won't like it.

    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.

    Lynn Austin has done it again. She has to be one of the greatest Christian author of our time. She makes her stories seem true and this book is no exception. I truly did not want this book to end. I hope there will be a sequel to Wonderland Creek. The characters are amazing!

    Can you tell? I loved this book!

    If I could, I would give this book 10 stars. I have to say this is one of the most well-written books I have ever "read". This is the first book I've "read" by Linda Nichols, but it won't be the last. I love the longer audio books and can usually make them last quite a while. Not so with this book. I listened to it every chance I could. More than 16 hours and it didn't take me long to finish it. This will be one I listen to again! If you get this book, you won't be disappointed.

    In A Table by the Window, best-selling Christian author Lawana Blackwell combines inspiration and intrigue. Carley Reed didn't have an easy childhood, but now, as a settled adult living in San Francisco, she has managed to make a peaceful life for herself. Everything turns upside down, though, one morning when a private investigator finds her and informs her that she has inherited her grandmother's house in a small town in Mississippi.

    This is one of the best books I have ever "Read". I can hardly wait until Audible has more books by Lawana Blackwell. You won't be disappointed in the story. The narrator is not the best, but you soon get over that as you get into the story. It is so good!!! I wish there were sequels to this one. I would love this story to go on and on.

    Overall

    I read this book about 17 or 18 years ago and was amazed at how wonderful and exciting it was. It opened my eyes to what is going on around us at all times. If you've ever experienced something in your life that seems to have happened supernaturally, this book will help you see that it probably was.

    I am so thankful "This Present Darkness" is now available on Audible. And, I can hardly wait for "Piercing the Darkness" to follow.

    I promise you will not be disappointed! This is one of the most exciting books I have ever read. I am a Christian and this book is a blessing to me. But, even if you aren't a Believer, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat with anticipation and excitement.

    Christy Award-winner Jamie Langston Turner pens another inspiring tale of forgiveness and redemption in this well developed novel. This emotional story delves into the complexities of family relations and religious devotion. Her grandmother�s funeral brings Celia Coleman back to that small Georgia town that she swore never to step in again.

    "Another Great Book by this Author"
    Overall

    This book is also an incredible book. Jamie Langston Turner has a wonderful way of capturing your interest almost immediately and even though you can hardly wait to find out what is going to happen, you hate for the book to end. You won't be disappointed in this book.
