    It is the middle of the 20th century, and in a home economics program at a prominent university, real babies are being used to teach mothering skills to young women. For a young man raised in these unlikely circumstances, finding real love and learning to trust will prove to be the work of a lifetime. In this captivating novel, bestselling author Lisa Grunwald gives us the sweeping tale of an irresistible hero and the many women who love him.

    A User says: "Well worth your time and credit"
    "Could have been a good book"
    Overall

    This book had an interesting beginning. The idea of orphans being used as subjects for home economics classes at a university for a year or two before being sent out for adoption, conjurs up all sorts of possibilities. The character of Henry House who remained at at he university and suffered emotional problems could have been carried over to explore the effect of this program on other "house babies." Instead,the second half of the book, was devoted to Henry's sexual escapades. Enough Already! You can stop listening after the first half of the book as the second half consists of weak and boring sexual exploits.

    The Grey sisters had only each other when their mother died years ago. Their father provided for them physically on Water's Edge, the ranch that had been in their family for three generations, each of them however, longed for their father's love.

    Brenda says: "Well written, POORLY narrated... :("
    "Bad romance novel"
    Overall

    This is nothing more than a poor excuse for a romance novel and it is also boring. It is a waste of time and money. The plot? There is none.

    FBI Special agent Brad Raines is facing his toughest case yet. A Denver serial killer has killed four beautiful young women, leaving a bridal veil at each crime scene, and he's picking up his pace. Unable to crack the case, Raines appeals for help from a most unusual source: residents of the Center for Wellbeing and Intelligence, a private psychiatric institution for mentally ill individuals whose are extraordinarily gifted.

    Holly Helscher says: "Everyone is the Favorite"
    "Terrible Book and Gruesome"
    Overall

    I agree with Betty & Kerry. It is poorly written and poorly read. Don't waste you money unless you like gruesome scenes.

    Seven-year-old Autumn Backman has a gift: she can communicate telepathically with others. Not everyone, mind you, but with a select few with whom she shares a special kinship. When Autumn and her mother, Joanna, take her father's ashes to be buried in the family plot in Brickers Bowl, Georgia, she witnesses a horrifying sight: her grandmother and two uncles, burying a pile of dead bodies in the middle of the night.

    Lehua says: "Predictable all the way"
    "Really Bad"
    Overall

    Maybe the book was good, but the narration was awful. The voices were exceptionally irritating. This was the first audible book I could not finish.
