    Story

    Don't let the animal mutations throw you. They are morbid, it's true, but this book is more of a tale of recovery from human suffering than anything else. It's a love story, of two souls kept apart by a betrayal, recovering from abuses, both mental and physical, that will forever haunt them unless they give in to the only one who can ever heal them - our Savior, Jesus Christ. The characters in this tale are multi-layered and engaging. The suspense and intrigue continues all the way through. You may figure out "who dunnit" before the end but you won't want to stop listening until the last "page" has been turned. An excellent read by both the author and narrator. Enough action and drama to keep any listener engaged.

    Story

    Award-winning, best-selling crossover author Lisa Wingate pens inspirational Southern fiction that tugs at the heartstrings. Blue Moon Bay takes Seattle architect Heather Hampton to quiet Moses Lake, Texas, where a promotion at her firm hinges on the sale of family farmland for a proposed industrial plant. Her plans hit a few snags thanks to her quirky family and a handsome banker opposing the land deal. It soon becomes clear that providence has other ideas for her future, and maybe this small town is the place where all her dreams could come true.

    Amazon Customer says: "Blue Moon Bay by Lisa Wingate"
    "Another winner for Lisa Wingate."
    Overall

    As the Moses Lake saga continues, new characters are caught in a web of intrigue that keeps the listener craving more. A secret past kept the authentic Heather hidden behind her hectic, fast paced big-city lifestyle. A trip back to her small Texas hometown of Moses Lake is more of an annoyance to this workaholic young architect than even she wants to admit. A series of misadventures, surprising encounters, and deep mysteries along the way may change Heather's life, forever, as a result.

    Listeners won't be disappointed with this beautiful and exciting story read by a gifted narrator.

    Story

    I had high hopes for this novel after reading it compared to Francine Rivers, "Redeeming Love." It was NOTHING like that. I struggled to stay interested the whole first 15 chapters (that's saying a lot). The story seemed shallow. Too much detail with not enough plot to maintain interest. Didn't flow well.

    The second half was much better and made the purchase worthwhile but not sure I'd recommend this book by any means.

    Story

    Peretti has a way of making one think. You will never look at your life and the world around you the same way again after reading "This Present Darkness."

    With a storyline ripped from today's headlines, Frank weaves a tale within a tale. One story tells us of a newsman & his chief reporter's pursuit to uncover the deadly secrets beneath the surface of their seemingly idyllic town while another much deeper story is occurring unbeknownst to these same main characters. While plodding through the muck of political corruption, cultism, and world take-over, the main characters never realize the battles that spiritual forces are undertaking at all times around them.

    The idea that angels and demons are locked in mortal combat around us - sparring for our minds, souls, and welfare is incredible yet Biblically accurate. After listening to this story, you're sure to think of the world in a new way as you listen for the rustling of angels' wings and appreciate the power that protects you through every whispered word, thought, and action that you take.

    This book will change your life. Powerfully suspenseful and masterfully written.
