    Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever. It’s a long way from Fort Worth, Texas, to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn Dixon realize she’s found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was Evelyn’s wake-up call to get busy chasing her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a storefront is easy enough; starting a new life isn’t....

    Story

    It took a minute for me to realize why I couldn't get into this book...it was primarily the "elderly" narrator (there were two: one read in a younger voice-sometimes too young for the character; while the other read for the older women characters in a very old, matronly voice). Her voice didn't help the book at all. It kind of grated on my nerves and I wasn't sure why she felt characterizing 40-50-60 year old women as if they were 100! Her pitch and tone when changing characters was confusing. Also, I wish the author hadn't waited so long to flesh out the characters. I may listen to another book, but I will steer clear of the reader.

    Zack Dylan has a dream. He wants to sing on the biggest stages, for the biggest crowds, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make it come true. But Zack also made a promise to his college sweetheart when he left Kentucky to compete on the popular TV show Fifteen Minutes: If he made it, nothing would change him or his faith in God. Overnight, Zack becomes the nation’s most popular contestant. As his star rises, Zack is often asked to compromise his beliefs. Just as he’s on the verge of winning it all, his choices lead him to the brink of personal disaster.

    When Joy Came to Stay illustrates the miraculous power of faith to overcome even the most debilitating suffering. Maggie Stovall has a successful career and a happy marriage, but she also bears the crippling weight of a secret from her past. As she slips farther and farther into depression, her only hope lies in God's loving forgiveness.

    Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt.

    I love everything this man writes. I'm hoping and praying he's got more books either written or in the works. If you haven't heard THE SHACK, go get it. This book is on the same lines as THE SHACK, but this one is a little lighter. Caution -- you have to be a true believer in what can possibly happen when God gets involved, or you won't get the story or like this book! This one is a true KEEPER!!

    As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson was pining for the day he could afford the fast cars and sprawling homes of the partners in his Charlotte firm. And with news of his father's death and an ancient, secret inheritance, Renny's life was sure to change forever. But the inheritance and membership in the clandestine society which provided it soon threatens to change him in more ways than one.

    I love Robert Whitlow's books. I hope he's writing more, because in a minute, I'm not going to have anymore of his to listen to; I'm just praying there's another author who writes along the same lines. Mr. Whitlow's books are more than a story, they are a lesson in life and the goodness and grace of God.

    In Holt Douglas' line of work, there's nothing sweeter than a confession of guilt. Assistant D.A. Holt Douglas makes his living exposing lies and sending criminals to jail in Ashley County, Georgia. His job is always easier when defendants, instead of remaining silent, blame someone else or try to excuse their actions. With a confession in his hand, Holt knows a guilty plea will soon follow. But lurking in Holt's past is a dark secret that could end his successful career and possibly his relationship with Angelina, his hoped-for fiancé.

    Robert Whitlow's writings are too important from a Christian standpoint to be tainted by a poor narrator. I liked the story, loved the message, just didn't care for the narrator. I hope the rest of his books (although I've listened to just about all of them) don't have the same story teller.

    For years, Amy has traveled to a holy place in her dreams - a sublime place she calls the Living Room. When she awakes, her faith and energy are supernaturally restored. And when she dreams, she receives vibrant inspiration for her novels. As she begins to write her third book, the nature of her dreams shifts. Gone are the literary signposts. Instead, her dreams are studded with scenes that foreshadow real life. Before long, the scenes begin to spill over into her waking hours too.

    Story

    I absolutely LOVE Robert Whitlow! I love his books, his thoughts, his words, his wisdom. What I don't like, especially in this book, is the storyteller. This is a book with a female as a main character. It should have been read by a female. The narrator reads as if he's reading a book, not as if he's trying to make characters come alive through his narration. Sometimes a good book can be weakened by the person relating it to the public, such as this one.

    It's summer on Nantucket, and as the season begins, three women arrive at the local airport, observed by Josh, a local boy, home from college. Burdened with small children, unwieldy straw hats, and some obvious emotional issues, the women - two sisters and one friend - make their way to the sisters' tiny cottage, inherited from an aunt. They're all trying to escape from something, and soon Josh is part of the chaotic household, acting as babysitter, confidant, and, eventually, something more....

    Jack Reacher. The ultimate loner. An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he's moved from place to place...without family...without possessions...without commitments.

    This is the third book I've listened to by this author and narrator and I love each and every one! I know Reacher's character may be over the top, but I still get excited and sometimes find myself holding my breath to hear what will happen next. I listen to these books in my car and there have been times that I've just sat in the car (after I've arrived at my destination), because I can't find a good stopping point! I just have to hear what comes next!
