    Story
    "Delightful Character"

    I really enjoyed Hope, who was true to her name. This was quite an uplifting story with lots of information making me want to research German immigrants to that region. I wasn't sure of what religious group they might have been affiliated with (i.e. Mennonite, Lutheran,...?). They probably said and I just missed it. The narrator was quite good too.

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "Forevermore"

    This was an encouraging and delightful story. I want to be more like Hope, the main character. She was so full of energy and always looked at the glass as half -full. She could find a blessing in any situation. Everyone could benefit from her example. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and finished it in 2 days. Jennifer

    "Great pick for listening"

    Good book with exciting twist and turns. Good option for a chirstian fiction author and that's why I am going to try another one of her books.

    Story
    "Unexpected fun"
    Where does Forevermore rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    "Forevermore" is one of my favourite audiobooks in this genre. The narrator is pleasant to listen to, the characters are engaging, and the story has moments of humour and hearbreak. I would say that it's one of the top ten books I've listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favourite aspect of this story is how the main character, Hope, constantly mixes up cliches. The things she says are funny enough to make me laugh out loud, but there's always a nugget of wisdom in what she says.


    What does Stina Nielsen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Stina Nielson has a very pleasant voice. She paces the story well- not too fast or slow- and does a good job conveying emotion. She doesn't differentiate between the characters' voices as clearly as some narrators, but as a result, all of the voices sound realistic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    One of the characters in the book has left her abusive husband and is being sheltered by her brother. I found her storyline and her brother's dedication to her safety and recovery very moving. In fact, the support that all of the characters showed her was touching.


    Any additional comments?

    "Forevermore" was the first book I read by Cathy Marie Hake, and is my favourite that she's written. There is one that preceeds it in the series, "Fancy Pants" and two that come after. I don't like the third and fourth books in the series as much, but I would also recommend her books "Letter Perfect" and "Bittersweet" to anyone who enjoyed this book.

    Story
    "Wonderfully funny and entertaining!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story line is well developed and the characters are strong. The family dynamics are like many of ours and show that grace will see us through.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The heroine was strong and funny. Sure of herself and her place in the world, confident of her skills and loyal to her friends.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The harvest.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I really enjoyed listening to it daily on my drive to work. Something to look forward to.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the narrator. The story was packed with drama and humor. Lots of little twists and turns to keep your interest. Best listen in a long time.

    "Way too religious for me"

    I wish that I'd seen that this was an "inspirational" book before I purchased it. The concept of the story is nice, but the bible passages every other paragraph were too much for me.
