While at times slow, this story was interesting and tells the true story of a family who lived during such an interesting time. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
Probably not. I can't remember ever reading or listening to a book more than once, except for when I was a kid.
It brought the bible story to life. It was incredibly interesting and the narration is excellent.
Yes! love the narration.
The end, the twisted plot, the complicated relationships.
She made it easy to listen to. She was animated and her accents were great.
I loved her cadence. She has a great voice.
This book had some interesting parts, but it seemed to drag on and on. I was disappointed. I really wanted to love it.
Yes. The narrator was amazing! She brought this book to life.
How real it was. Family dysfunction, secrets, pain- it is there and this shined a light on it.
Her wonderful voice. She carried this book. I looked forward to listening to it daily.
I have recommended this already to my friends. It is a great story that brings home to cold hard truth about the decisions we all made.
When Wes's mom told him she was not going to take him out of military school. It was a painful decision for her as a mom I am sure, but one that needed to be made for the sake of her child.
Every choice has a consequence.
I could really feel, hear, taste and smell what was happening hour by hour. It gave me a deeper understanding of the sacrifices made by Jesus and his disciples, the difficult decisions that had to be made and the incredible grief Mary suffered watching her son go through all of this.
Jesus. Enough said.
The sermon on the Mount. Good advice even today.
Yes. I am a big fan of Immaculee Ilibagiza's books. They are honest and sobering. This book is inspiring and makes you grateful for everything you have.
Interesting, inspiring and entertaining.
Regardless of your political affiliation, this is a story about family, love, dedication and triumph over pain. It is beautifully written and I love that Ms. Rice read it herself.
Yes. It was a well told story that kept me wanting more.
Vivian- what incredible strength despite the sorrow.
I wasn't sure how I would like the narrator but I ended up really enjoying her voice. Love this book. Highly recommended.
Important, harrowing story
I put off listening to this book for years, thinking, "Oh! It is just so long and what if it's boring?" It was anything but boring. This is an amazing book, written so well. I could taste, see, feel what it was like for the men who were captured.
