    Two unknown producers struggle to fulfill their dreams to change lives through the power of film. With millions of investors' dollars on the line, everything starts to fall apart and they realize they may be in over their heads. Is it possible to beat the odds and make a movie unlike anything ever done before? Or will they lose everything in the process?

    What made the experience of listening to Take One the most enjoyable?

    I liked that the characters were deeply developed and believable. I had forgotten the fears and dreams through a young girls eyes.


    What other book might you compare Take One to and why?

    This was the first book that I had read (listened to) by Karen Kingsbury and enjoyed her writing very much. She has a style similar to another one of my favorite authors, Francine Rivers.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    I liked having 5 narrators. I would have liked to have the their voices a little more distictive or recognizable. A few times this caused confusion. One of the female narrators was not good, but I couldn't say which one, because I didn't know her name. The male voices were awesome!


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

    I cried when someone else was chosen for the leads girlfriend. That must have been very hard for the producer/dad.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. I love that Kingsbury was able to conviegh a beautiful Christian message in a sweet believeable story.....Just PUSH.....Pray Until Something Happens!

    The compelling story of Bathsheba and David as told by award-winning author Francine Rivers. Listeners will see the familiar biblical account unfold in a whole new light through the eyes of Bathsheba. This timeless story has contemporary meaning for today's listeners. A study on the biblical text is included for personal or group study.

    Would you listen to Unspoken: Bathsheba again? Why?

    Francine Rivers fills in the gaps of the Biblical story while stiring in an imaginative never told love story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I appreciated the depths of honesty that Rivers expresses in the human flaw of not being able to forgive oneself.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    The narration was good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Heart of Bathsheba

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Prisoners may enjoy this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Piper Kerman again?

    No


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The only redeeming quality is that writter found some remorse from her actions. She never fully expressed the damage and turmoil her actions caused others, let alone the cost to American taxpayers.


    Any additional comments?

    It was difficult to warm up to this book. With 25+ characters lacking adequate personality or background, the only person one could relate to was Piper Kerman. Although she testifies of her miserable experiences in prison, it sounds more like CLUBFED to me.

    Garnering three RITAs and a Christy Award, Francine Rivers is acclaimed for classics like Atonement Child. Set in the 1850s Smoky Mountains, this Gold Medallion-winner tells the gripping tale of a girl who's desperate to remove the guilt of her sister's death and anxious to absolve her departed grandmother of sins. While seeking the elusive Sin Eater, she uncovers a hideous secret and finds the truth.

    Where does The Last Sin Eater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Francinse Rivers stories always tug at my heart. Hearing of a time gone by and looking at our current pagan world, makes me feel that there is hope for us yet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed hearing the boldness of the man sent by God. He was so bold and brave.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    History, customs, suspense, excitement are just a few of the emotions Francine Rivers takes you though on this journey. Real to life emotions and actions keep the story believable and interesting. I enjoyed all three books of the series and "As Sure as the Dawn" brought closure to the story. Thank you Francine. You are excellent at "feeding the flock!"
