    Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

    Dave says: "Not a bad choice"
    "Very Interesting Read"
    Overall

    This is the first Presidential Memoir that I've read. George Bush did not disappoint me in keeping it interesting. I do think it was a bit long, but there was a tremendous amount of information covered and he does an excellent job at clarifying his duties, the choices he made, and why he made those choices. He also shows that he's not afraid to admit that he made mistakes, but they were made with the America's Best Interest at Heart!

  • Women of the Bible: Abigail's Story

    Ann Burton's critically acclaimed first novel in this compelling Biblical series tells the fictionalized tale of a young Jewish woman who makes pottery to support her family. But when her brother's huge gambling debt threatens to enslave them, she convinces his creditor to marry her and forgive the debt. After her husband sends her to manage his herds in the hills, Abigail grows fond of the rustic inhabitants - and of an enigmatic shepherd soldier who's on a collision course with her husband.

    Cayce says: "Wordy"
    "Entertaining and well Aligned with the God's Word"
    Overall

    This is the story of David's wife Abigail with whom he wed after her very selfish husband became ill and died. It is fiction because it elaborates on who Abigail was and what her life before, during, and right after the death of Nabal. But, it is a likely story and very well aligned with the story in the Bible. I did not find it wordy at all and once I listened through the first chapter I found the narrators voice to be beautiful and easy to listen to. Ann Burton did a great job with this book and I'm looking forward to reading others by her. I highly reccomend this audio book.

    All that matters for Cadi Forbes is finding the one man who can set her free from the sin that plagues her - the sin that has stolen her mother's love from her and made her wish she could flee life and its terrible injustice. But Cadi doesn't know that the "sin eater" is seeking as well. Before their journeys are over, Cadi and the sin eater must face themselves, each other, and the One who will demand everything from them in exchange for the answers they seek.

    "Another Great Book From a Great Artist"
    Overall

    In true Francine Rivers Style this book keeps you enthralled in the story and she never disappoints her readers. You do not have to be a Christian to enjoy this book because it is THAT GOOD! If you are a Christian then I highly recommend this book because it is thought provoking and beautifully written!

    "The Prophet Does Not Disappoint"
    Overall

    Francine Rivers is the best Christian Fiction Author that I have ever had the pleasure of reading/hearing. Although she embellishes some to make the story a story, which is why she is a fictional writer. But you can trust that she is not leading her readers off on a tangent and away for the original story in the bible! I have never met her but I know from her stories that she is a Godly woman who loves the Lord with all of her being. Be sure and read The Prophet. It is the story of Amos and how he stayed true to God and how he must've felt during the days that he was called to prophesy for a sovereign God during a time when unfaithfullness and idolatory was rampant.

    Fire Study did not disappoint me! Maria V. Snyder has done it again! Fire Study is packed full of Action, Betrayal, Romance, and Good vs Evil, not to mention tons of sci-fi/fantasy! It's all in the book and I recommend it HIGHLY! Although Fire Study can be read without reading the first two; Poison Study and Magic Study, but I think that the first two are as awesome as Fire Study and you wouldn't want to miss them! Happy, Happy Listening To Gabbra Zackman as she carries you through Yelena's biggest fear and her heroic stance against IT!

    After being jilted by her fiancé, Autumn Maguire uses her nonrefundable honeymoon tickets to explore Paris on her own. Eager to experience the true bohemian lifestyle, she answers an ad for an artist's model. But when she exchanges her clothes for the artist's lush red cloak, something strange happens.

    Marilee Peterson says: "Not what I was expecting"
    "Pure Erotica"
    Overall

    If this book had pictures it would be pure pornographic. The problem with this is that it lends very little to the story line, which is what caught my attention, and gears more toward sexual acts. Some folks may find this book to be to their likening, but it needed more character than this. I don't mind a little sexuality in my romance books, but I need romance to be the dominant feature.

    John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

    Reade says: "One of the worst"
    "Fabulous"
    Overall

    I Loved this book. The author knows how to bring his audience right into the book. When he was amused with Marley, so was I, when he was mad at Marley so was I, and when he lost Marley, so did I! Thank you John for sharing your life, your family, and your wonderful worst dog Marley with us!

    Wow, I'm still enthralled by Ms. Rivers writings and how she brings out the main Character in her book. I Love the way that she keeps her writings in line with GOD's word and how it leaves me ready and excited about the next book in this series.

    The Priest begins Francine Rivers' series of the lives of five men who stood behind the great heroes of the faith. Building upon her tremendous success with the Lineage of Grace series, The Priest finds Rivers at her best when we meet Aaron, brother of Moses, and first High Priest of Israel. Listen as Rivers takes a man seen as part of a supporting cast and elevates him to his rightful place, as a key leader who impacts the faith for eternity.

    "Inspiring and thought provoking"
    Overall

    Francine Rivers has the wonderful gift of bringing the bible alive in her writings. I love the fact that she goes beyond the main characters of the bible and elaborates on the lives of those that were equally important in their roles and their service to the almighty GOD of all creation. I've read The Grace Lineage series about the Women in our Saviors heritage and how their roles played out and now this Series about the importance of the supporting men in the Bible has been just as wonderful and enlightening. Although Ms. Rivers books are fiction, I find that she stays completely within the writings of the GOD's word the Bible.

    Overall

    Anna Fitzgerald is caught between her dying sister Kate who has cancer and her love for her parents.
    Anna was genetically conceived in order for her sister to get what she needed to survive from the umbilical chord after Anna's birth. The problem came into play when Anna was called upon to donate bone marrow, blood platelets, etc... over the past 13 years. Now Kate needs a kydney and Anna is isn't so sure that she's ready to give up one of her kydney's. She decides to hire a lawyer and fight for her right to make her own medical dicisions.

    This story has enough of romance, mystery, and social issues to keep you coming back for more. And, the fact that there are several different voices telling the story just adds to it's intrique. It's a good listen and I recommend it.

    The only reason that I don't give it 5 stars is because of the unnecesary language that is used. The story could have been just as good if not better if the language were a bit cleaner.
