    Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw.

    What made the experience of listening to The Sins of the Father the most enjoyable?

    After listening to "Time will tell" and "The Sins of our Fathers", I was a solid fan of Archer.
    This was a "cannot put it down" book and; therfore, I am very sad to say that I will not be listening to future books by Archer as I just can't stand the fact that each book ends with a "cliff hanger" so that you will feel obliged to purchase the next book in order to see what happens.
    Enjoyable books do not need such tricks to sway me to buy the next one. I follow the same authors over and over and can't wait for the next book to ocme out.

  • Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    "Narration Cheapens Banner's message"
    Overall

    I would be inclined to believe the author's assertion that he had no agenda behind writing about religion fueled violent behavior if it weren't for the over-zealous narration of Scott Brick. After stumbling on to works narrated by Brick, I now avoid purchasing anything narrated by him. Brick's affectations and eggaterated emphasis drive me to distraction and rob the book of any useful meaning.
