    Barbara Holloway is a low-key attorney in Eugene, Oregon, who left her father’s high-powered firm to handle small legal problems for local residents and ponder her next move. But while trying to sort out her own future, two people, desperate for help, show up on her doorstep: former pro football player Martin Owens and his wife, Binnie. Binnie, who is mute, met her husband when she sneaked aboard his boat while it was docked in Haiti and smuggled herself into the US.

    Story

    This book is actually book 2 of the Barbara Holloway series (published/released out of order). I love this series and I loved getting to hear Martin & Binnie's story finally being hinted at through every book after book one. I agree with one listener that the narrator's voice doesn't quite capture Barbara's personality as I imagine her to be. The narrator's voice for Barbara is too high and too flighty but I got over it. Barbara just doesn't come off as the super intelligent,intense investigator/attorney she is. Even though this book takes place during the Reagan years, it's so well written I only missed the presence of Frank (Barbara's father) and Shelly. The whole series is well written (even if I didn't like some of the books the first time I went through them). I've come to appreciate and enjoy the whole series.

    Forged in the crucible of a Nazi concentration camp, here are the words and wisdom, the faith and spiritual insight, of Corrie ten Boom. First emerging in print in the past decade, these 50 lost sermonettes now come to you in one inspirational volume, sharing with you messages of faith, hope, and forgiveness from a veteran saint.

    Overall

    This devotional audiobook compilation of Corrie Ten Boom's radio messages is absolutely wonderful. She is one of my very favorite heroes of the Christian faith. Her faith and her relationship with God are so genuine and inspirational. In this book, she answers the question one man asked her "What makes Jesus Christ more a reality for you than for me?" That's what I love about listening to Ms. Ten Boom speak-in her day to day life, Jesus is real to her. Susie Sandager does a great job with her narration. I can imagine Corrie Ten Boom speaking directly to me, encouraging me, correcting me...
