    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow of Time to be better than the print version?

    As I haven't read the print book I can't answer this. But I loved the audio version

    How much of history of the Navajo's was used in the story. There was a spin on it but it was so neat to see so much in there.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Josh and Hannah did the ceremony to join them together and she got to see so many of his memories


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

    the whole book actually it was such an inspiring story


    Any additional comments?

    I must give a thumbs up to the narrator. Must better job from the last book.
    This book was so alive that I wanted to listen to it again when I was done
    Keep up what you did in this book you brought it to life

    Freshly divorced at 40 yrs old, Chloe Zanders has few illusions left about her ability to make her dreams come true. She is never going to be thin, never going to be a famous singer, and never going to be sexy enough to keep a man like her handsome ex-football player husband from cheating. While the first two dreams might continue to flicker hopefully inside her, Chloe now accepts the last one had been doomed from the start.

    I am always recommending Sharon's books for two reasons. One she writes such great stories that I am drawn into and two her narrator JD Hart does an amazing job bringing these already wonderful books to life


    What does J. D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way he does the different characters is just amazing. His talent for making each person have their own voice is just brilliant and he brings them from book to book

    Leia lives on the Island, a world in which children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they are 10 years old. Across this Island runs a wall that no one has ever crossed. The Fools living behind it are not amenable to reason - they believe in illusions. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors. But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same. Is what she and her friends believe about the Island really true? Or is everyone in their world, in fact, a Fool?

Vowing he will save her from the bad environment she has placed herself in, he is blindsided by his sister's hotter-than-hot best friend, Gina. Gina Mancuso is working her first undercover detail, trying to prove herself on a male-dominated police force, even if it means she has to work side by side with the SDPD officer with whom she had a brief, abusive relationship.

    One hundred years ago, people were forced to retreat to the seas...Chey's ocean home seems lovely on the outside, with its rainbow-hued reefs and soul-tingling Whale-song, but the beauty hides secrets and despair. One thousand blues can be too many…Some people cannot live amid them all. After losing her parents and best friend, Chey would do anything to fight off the apathy that threatens her: swim in a brood of jellies, break her sector's rules, and even breach the Surface. A forbidden encounter sets Chey on a desperate search for a way to save her people... and herself.

    After her father's death, the last thing Ava Windsor wants is to leave Earth and move to an Elite colony on the moon for the next 10 months. Nicolas, a half-uncle she doesn't even remember meeting, is to be her custodian until she reaches the age of 21. Until then, she is not allowed to touch the money her dad has left her. Being the only child of a disowned Elite father and a common mother just got a lot more complicated. But surviving among the Luna Six Elitists who treat commoners as servants should have been the least of Ava's worries.
