Honor, patience and faith
I thought I was pretty well versed on this case before I read this book but I was still surprised by a few facts in this memoir.
Giulia Bongiorno maybe my new personal hero. Judge Hellman is up there also.
This was my first audiobook read by Seth Numrich and I enjoyed his pace and voice, I would listen to him again.
I think the title of the book says it all - Honor bound.
Fast paced and straight forward. It was compelling to see Raphaelle's point of view, largely viewed as merely pawn in this tragic series of events; he is brutally honest and doesn't always paint himself in the best light but is unwavering in his pursuit to do the right thing. All for a girl he had known for barely more than a week.
This book also details the immense cost this trial took on his family which was touching, I particularly felt for his sister. Their father should be proud of having raised such upstanding children.
I was always amazed at how easily he could have chosen to save or at least help himself but stuck to the truth. He possesses qualities that are increasingly rare in this day and age.
Quite high, though it was only one chapter it was very entertaining. Having the actual actor doing the reading is fantastic.
Hmm, I can't really think of anything this compares to. I'm not usually a big reader of this type of story but I love this one.
When Brody resolves himself to his fate was the most compelling scene though nothing of this chapter could be called 'favorite', it's just a small look at a small part of a big picture.
Homeland: The Hiding
Worth the download - wish there was more - hope there will be more very soon!
