    I love to be totally immersed in a good story. I love the thrill of the middle of a great book. Thinking about it all day... wondering what will happen and then enjoying the conclusion. Nothing frustrates me more than an author who weaves an intense story line, builds interesting characters and then dumps me into despair by ending it all abruptly. Just hate that. I relish the "ahhhhh" at the end of a great story.

    Story
    "Very Inspirational"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed reading this biography of Gracia Burnham. I remember when that took place and so it was great to read the details of the story and her responses to what happened. She did an excellent job of retelling her tale of difficult and painful circumstances and it encouraged me to "walk joyfully" to what is going on at any given time.

    Story
    "Inspirational"
    Would you listen to In the Presence of My Enemies again? Why?

    Yes, to better aquaint myself with the captives and to be inspired by their strength and courage to keep going.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gracia, she reminded me of myself. One minute she's strong & standing up to the captors and the next she's crying wishing it was all over with. You can be strong only so long then you hit your breaking point & emotions just boil over. But I think she handled herself very well.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    This is my 1st audio book, but it seemed to, yes.


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

    Follow these missionaries through hell and back.
