    From the locked archives of the Vatican to the overgrown jungles of Ethiopia, an unlikely trio begins a deadly search for the Holy Grail. Two journalists and a beautiful photographer are traveling together in a broken down Jeep while covering the 1975 Ethiopian civil war. Both men fall in love with the woman and that complicates things. When the trio winds up lost in the jungle, in the no man's land between the fighting factions, they take cover and dig in for the night. In their hiding place, they encounter a dying man who tells them an amazing and quite unbelievable story. But for some reason - one that they grapple with for the rest of their journey - that night they believe.

    Even though the war had thrown a shroud over the outside world, Phineas and Gene remained untouched by it. In the summer of ’42, the Devon school was a lot like Camelot, fairly bursting with adventure and promise. As much as Gene resisted it, there had been something eternal and unforgettable about that summer. And by the time he understood what life without Phineas could be—it was too late.

    Would you try another book from John Knowles and/or Spike McClure?

    I would consider another book by this author but will stay away from anything with Spike McClure.


    What didn’t you like about Spike McClure’s performance?

    This was the absolute worst narration of any of the almost 100 books I've enjoyed. The guy had no sense of what he was reading. The voices were terrible! Did he not know where these characters were supposed to be from? His inflection was unbearable. This story could have been an opportunity for a great performance. He gave no personality to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    My daughter had to read this book for school. Don't know why, it is far from a classic. But the story is decent. She asked if she could download this and listen to it over the weekend. I figured if she had to read it I would also so we could discuss it later as I was not familiar. She could not finish listening as it was ruining the story for her. I did not have the time to read it, thus audiobooks existence, and was barely able to complete the story. If not for discussing with her I would have quit. Save your time and money and read the book.

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    This book had a lot of twists and turns. Overall is was a great book. Scott Brick is the best! I look forward to more of Harlan Cohen's books.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick is the best in the biz!

    Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limitations.

    What made the experience of listening to Boundaries the most enjoyable?

    The content of this book was great. I wish I had read the book, though. The narrator is terrible. If you can suffer through his reading the information is great.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Fredricks’s performances?

    No
