    Christy Award-winner Jamie Langston Turner pens another inspiring tale of forgiveness and redemption in this well developed novel. This emotional story delves into the complexities of family relations and religious devotion. Her grandmother´┐Żs funeral brings Celia Coleman back to that small Georgia town that she swore never to step in again.

    Story

    Jamie has a certain style of writing; and you either like it or you don't. This is not my favorite book by her; but it was nice. Jamie is very "wordy" and not a lot of action. I enjoy her a lot, because I like the various twists and turns the character's thought processes take. It has quite a cute "fairy tale" ending. Of course, it's considered an "inspirational novel" in that it is guided by the teachings of Jesus and how they can shape your life. If you're ok with that, and enjoy wordy thought processes; give it a listen.

    This was a good book, IMHO, though not great. The story was interesting the way all the characters' lives dovetailed into each other. It flowed along nicely, and was an interesting listen. Well written.

    As manager of an elementary school cafeteria, middle-aged Margaret Tuttle is objective and self-contained. She has no interest in emotions or attachments to those around her. But when Birdie Freeman begins to work for Margaret, things begin to change. With her childlike, unselfish, Christian love, Birdie touches everyone she meets. Soon, Margaret's heart opens in spite of her resolve to remain aloof.

    Story

    I love this book; I've listened to it a couple of times now; and will again sometime. It is in the typical style of Jamie Langston Turner in being quite wordy, and a Christian novel....so you have to be ok with that. But! the narration is great! I was rolling in my seat laughing half the time!. Then, watching the unfolding of "Margaret Tuttle," usually from right within her own thought processes, was amazing. I adore the sweet way Jamie allows the unfolding of Margaret's heart opening after an extremely painful early life. Beautifully done. I heartily recommend this book.

    CBA best-selling author Deeanne Gist, Christy Award winner for The Measure of a Lady, skillfully blends humor and romance in authentic historical settings. Courting Trouble, set in 1894, features a feisty, fun-loving heroine who tires of waiting for a match made in heaven and decides to settle for one made in Texas. So, on her 30th birthday, Essie launches her own secret mission to find a husband.

    Story

    I just loved this book. The narrator, Danielle Ferland, was absolutely perfect. To enjoy this book; you have to let go of judgment of the times; and just appreciate the wonderful Essie, the heroine, and her path to her own liberation. And, liberation does come in the end; as she learns to trust in her inner knowing (call it what you will). Though it is written in the spirit of Christianity, you can use your own spiritual path to rejoice in Essie's finding and trusting her inner voice. The ending is awesome!

When she discovers her husband has been unfaithful, the Lord's strength becomes more valuable than ever.

    Story

    Jamie (the author) definately has her own unique style of writing! If you like fast-paced stories that move along...don't order this.
    This tells of a woman who is writing a journal about the unfolding of a major event in her life, and how God orchestrated this to teach her to love. The woman's journaling jumps around a LOT. But it all comes together in the end.
    I really enjoyed it....the creativity and uniqueness of the telling was refreshing. I just flowed along with it. I especially loved the ending, because it involved the movie "Babette's Feast," one of my favorite flicks.
    So, only you can decide if it is right for you. Good luck..

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. I'm just chuckling, thinking about it. The story is very creative....not fast-paced, but fasinating. It has an incredible plot to it, skips around a lot, but it all comes together. It has such interesting information about animals in it....and human nature....and religion. I highly recommend it. I must warn you, it has a bunch of gross parts in it. This is definately a well-rounded book.

    Kent Anthony is a brilliant software engineer who is cashing in on a brilliant career. He's finally living the idyllic life, far from thoughts of theft and murder and other kinds of horrible criminal behavior. He's left his past far behind.... or so he thinks. This story will bring you face to face with a hidden world more real than most people ever realize; a world where the unseen is more powerful than anything seen.

    I'm still not sure how I ever chose this book. I must not have looked carefully at the reviews. For me, it was awful. Crude, ridiculous, no sensitivity at all. I see others have said that, and I wish I had listened. Please think carefully before you download this one...like I didn't. For some folks, it might be good, but for me...yuck..

Friends and family rally around the Olczaks in their time of grief, but with Sister Regina, things are different.

    I would say this story is my favorite love story of all times. LaVeryle is such a brilliant writer. The characters are so real and warm and loving...(all but one!) The recording is very old and hard to hear....so, if you let that get in the way, you won't like it. But if you can get past that....it's a wonderful love story.

    I love LaVyrle Spencer; no on I know can write of love as she can. Though this story had very sad parts in it; I adore the presentation of the "unsuitable age difference", the couple involved realizing the attraction and caring themselves, then facing their world with it. It's a difficult subject; and LaVyrle does her usual great job with it. Very "identifiable".....each character is so real. A great, heartfelt read. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the recorded quality is so poor because it is so old.
