This is a wonderful story that helps bring previously boring biblical characters to adventurous life. This book had me dusting off my Bible to check up on the validity of Lynn's biblical/historical accounts - I was able to verify the key events in her capitivating story. I learned a great deal of Biblical history and was blessed by her presentation of Godly truth. It is a delight having entertainment provide valuable education. A true treasure!!
Just doesn't capture my attention. I love Christian literature, but I guess this one just isn't for me.
Kind of a Schindler's list. This book haunts me. I hope it is not really that bad anywhere. Maybe it is. Maybe I'm naive, probably. We really have a wonderful life here in the USA.
I gave it a 5 because of how it demanded my attention and has kept my thoughts for many months. It is truly a story to ponder.
Connect with the Lord; as an Audible customer, I am not the world’s greatest reader. I have always wanted to read the Bible, but it just didn’t happen….. until now. The Message is a real blessing. I keep at least one part on my player at all times. I can read/listen to a little of the Word any time I want……in modern ‘story’ format. A perfect format for me. ENJOY!!
If you want to deal effectively with people, this book should be in your library. I will listen to it several times. I have reviewed and studied the principles many times already.
If you want to win big - employ these principles. They will/do work.
I must read every year. This book will make you and keep you wealthy.
Read it and find out.
My middle school children were assigned this book and I decided to listen along. Boy am I glad I did. My children (12 & 14) are connoisseurs of excellent literature - "Mom, this is boring and stupid." We ceased the reading/listening mid way.
I/we were offended not only by the lame writing, but by the content. A very remedial "he said, she said” book with drunken characters wandering aimlessly through the book. This is NOT Montana and I hope you will reconsider before purchasing this waste of time.
Not my favorite, good for a few laughs and ended warm and fuzzy. I listened to this while in Mexico "Skipping Christmas" otherwise I may not have finished it. Something to do on the beach while drinking margaritas.
This did have a nice wrap up, but I felt I was wasting my time on a citcom book, but I guess that is why I was on the beach.
I don't watch much TV. If you like citcom TV you may really enjoy this one.
Lynn Austin is quite the historian as well as story teller. This is my favorite way to study history. Austin teaches as she entertains the Civil War story. I will listen to this audio over and over.
This was a wonderful story that mixed civil war history with integrity, kindness and love. The author bound these attributes together with strong Christian values. I will listen to it many times. It not only entertained me with an uplifting love story, it furthered my knowledge of the difficult and painful Civil War times.
