  • The Song of Bernadette

    Considered one of the greatest novels of simple and triumphant religious faith to be published in the 20th century, how the The Song of Bernadette came to be written is an inspirational - even miraculous - story in its own right. In June 1940, famed Austrian author Franz Werfel and his beautiful wife, Alma Mahler, were on a desperate flight across France, seeking to escape certain death at the hands of the Nazi invaders. Franz had written many articles and given many radio speeches denouncing their tyranny.

    From one coast to the other, to the far side of the globe, three diverse characters follow paths that will mysteriously connect: Tina Lopez, endowed with a special gift from God; Ethan Kelly, a young Irish-American priest-in-training; and K.C. Littleton, who will prove that old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." All will discover a new appreciation for faith, forgiveness, and family.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    If a brief epilogue could have preceded the story, so the listener knows that all these characters & their stories are related, it would have been much more enjoyable for me. It seemed to take a very long time to understand the relationships in the book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No Dark Valley


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    The performance needs to be audited immediately. There are 2 places where the performance of the chapters are repeated. One of those is the very end of the book and another is about 2/3 through the book.

    What did you love best about Heart of Lies?

    This series (all 3 books) is awesome. Although you think you know what will happen, there are always twists and turns to keep you guessing. The stories reflect past events, without dwelling of retelling every detail in each book - much appreciated. Each book brings the family closer to reunion without having them forget the life they have lived and the names they were given. Can't wait for Sarah's story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    See above comment.


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was easy to visualize the people and the situation by the way it was presented.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely.
