    Story
    (130)

    The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence – unless, somehow, they can learn a new life. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher.

    P. Giorgio says: "Anything Pat Conroy writes is wonderful to me."
    "LOVE IT!!"

  • New Day, New You: Devotions for Enjoying Everyday Life

    Joyce Meyer stresses that spending just a few minutes each day with God can help you. Beginning each day this way is an opportunity to get off on the right foot and to set the tone for the day. This devotional draws from 19 of her most popular books providing listeners with a fresh word from God. Each devotion is an excerpt from one of Joyce's books selected for the encouraging and strengthening message it offers.

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

    The narrator was so bad I could not listen to this book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything with a different narrator!


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator!!


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator of this book is the worse I have ever heard. She speaks in a slow monotone and grotesquely over pronunciates.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Absolutely.
