    Rachel Price’s one happy memory from her childhood is of playing outside with her father, Mitch, on a cold and snowy day. In that moment he took her hands in his and called her his angel. She felt safe, loved, and protected. Rachel’s mother dies in a car crash a few years later - a sudden and unresolved ending to a complicated relationship. Mitch’s reaction to certain realities surrounding the death pushes Rachel away and confirms her fear that Mitch never truly loved her at all. Years later, Rachel’s daughter, Lily, is the only light in her dark life.

    Carolyn says: "Story of a life of abuse."

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story took hold immediately and I didn't want to stop listening until finished (although I had to). Not only did I enjoy the story, but I was very pleased with the two narrators that were chosen. The book was read more like an audio dramatization than the usual "read the book aloud" narration. I was sorry when the book came to an end and will probably "read" it again many times. Kudos to all who were involved in the production of this book. One of the best listens I have had.

    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    "Captivating and Well Read"
    Overall

    This book was a joy to listen to. It is well written, compelling, and informative. Narrator Malcolm Hillgartner is easy to listen to. As I listened, I sensed that the narrator was accurately presenting the material as the author intended and was truly interested in what he was reading. He drew me into the story and it was difficult to "put the book down", in an audio way of course. I will probably listen to this book again someday. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Bonhoeffer or 20th century history.
