    In this stirring prequel, New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe returns to the “cold-blooded yet fascinating” (Publishers Weekly) character from her acclaimed novel The Upper Room. Ruby is a wild youth, with a thirst for boys and booze by the age of 15. When she discovers she’s pregnant, the only person she can confide in is her best friend Othella. But Othella talks Ruby into giving up the child, leaving Ruby emotionally shattered and adamant that Othella is to blame for her loss.

    Where does Mama Ruby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank "Moma Ruby" among the best top rated audiobooks in my library.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Ruby because she was so unpredictible and outspoken. She was some kind of "sassy"!


    What does Kevin R. Free bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I ABSOLUTELY loved listening to this audiobook and it is because of the great narration performed by Kevin R. Free. Kevin's voice transitioned perfectly to fit each character so vividly and precise that you feel like you are instantly taken back into the era and time setting of the book. I have listened to other books that Kevin has narrated and really enjoyed them but I have to say that this is his BEST performance (that I have encountered so far). He definitely gets an academy award for this!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A sin and a shame...


    Any additional comments?

    Mary Monroe is among one of my favorite authors. i wish someone would have told me about how good a book Moma Ruby was before now but I am telling you. Besides Moma Ruby's violent side, she is a likable character and brings much excitement to this story. Mary made an excellent decision in choosing Kevin Free as the narrator.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber is a master at portraying unforgettable characters and complex, passionate relationships. Voluptuous Loraine Farrow is as successful as she is curvy, but life is never easy when you want to have your cake and eat it too. With her husband Leon confronting issues from his past, trouble arises on the homefront - and more drama is on the way in the form of Michael, an ex-lover desperate to rekindle his and Loraine’s once torrid flame.

    If you could sum up Torn Between Two Lovers in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, Betrayal, Surprising


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lorraine had the makings of a true hero because she is a strong woman, but like all hero's, there is a hidden weakness.


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

    Yes. This one had more intense drama


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Friends and Lovers


    Any additional comments?

    I gave this story five stars because I found it hard to stop listening to the story. Weber did a great job of pulling the listener into the story line and characters - I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. The story is an instant transition into another world of lust, drama, and deceit - all the makings of a great story. Relax in your favorite bubble bath, close your eyes, relax and get ready to have your mind transported to another world.

    What did you like best about Sittin' in the Front Pew? What did you like least?

    I liked how the story was able to embed and draw you in to the story as though you were actually there. The characters are life-like The author did a good job of capturing the essence of grief and its aftermath on the family while bringing a sense of humor into the plot. Any family that has experienced the lost of a loved one will be able to relate to the story and how grief effects each family member differently creating complications. Overall, I enjoyed listening to the story line even though I thought the plot was somewhat predictable at times ( I was able to guess what was going to happen next).


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
