During the toilsome era of the 1920's, few dreamed of frivolous fortunes. But Gregory Allen, despite his humble upbringing, did more than dream. He achieved wealth, power, and a large estate in his early twenties. Still, Gregory saw no life in living without love and married his dreamgirl, Emily Allen. With a child on the way and his fragrance company on the rise, Gregory's dreams finally seemed to be coming true. But when a fiercely sought after and rare flower causes a close friend's daughter to disappear, Gregory has no choice but to leave his growing family behind and hunt for her in the harsh jungle of Africa.
The nightmare begins when Gregory passes out in the mysterious jungle and wakes up in the captivity of a strange group, twenty-five years later. The family and the company he thought he left for only a few months has vanished, and without proof of who he is, Gregory struggles to break free. When Gregory finally returns home, everything he loved and cared about has been destroyed—or more accurately, stolen. A childhood foe has stripped Gregory of his life. Getting even becomes Gregory's only purpose. But if he is not careful, he will lose more than he ever thought possible. With his life, love, and family on the line, Gregory needs allies, but quickly learns his greatest weapon is his own forgiveness.

Yes, I hope my family gets a chance to listen also.
I loved the emotion and the forgiveness. Also the adventure. I was always wondering what would happen next.
Yes, very good reader and voice.
Gregory was most memorable to me because the story was told mostly from his view point, and I could relate with how he felt. Also, Eleanor was a very interesting character.
I loved the authors word usage (vocabulary) and her ability to weave an intriguing story.
