    "Echoes of a Distant Summer"

    Marvelos, absolutely marvelous. It's a gripping soulful captivating sequel to his previous book, Standing at the Scratchline. I would highly recommend reading that book first. I couldn't wait to get in my car to listen to the next part... He writes so well. The detail he gives to the characters as well as the events is all consuming. Read it. It's good. (But I still recommend reading Standing at the Scratchline first.) Congratulations Mr. Johnson. Well done.

    "Loved it!"

    Loved it! Action packed, exciting and very well
    written. If you can, read "Standing at the Scratch Line" first. I hope to read more from this author!

    Story
    "I Won't Say Joe, 'Cause Now I Know!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! Especially after reading the first book, Standing at the Scratch Line. Guy Johnson sure does know how to put together a story. Well written plot and spending much time on character development allows the reader to truly understand the actions the characters choose to take. Well done Mr. Johnson, Well done!


    What other book might you compare Echoes of a Distant Summer to and why?

    None. (Except for the first book Standing at the Scratch Line).


    What about Peter Jay Fernandez’s performance did you like?

    One of my favorite narrators, he has yet to prove me wrong, I love his pace, delivery, and how he draws you into the story.


    If you could rename Echoes of a Distant Summer, what would you call it?

    I would not. It fits.

    "Echoes of a Distaant Summer"

    Thanks for the sequeal, the first book Standing at the Scratch Line left you wondering what happened to Tramaine and Serena. I hope that there will be a third book.
