If I had more hours in my life I would. But there are too many books I want to listen to, to go back to one even a good one like this.
Probably one of Nora Roberts early romance books. There was a lot of development of characters and story. So even though it was actually two stories in one it was well written.
When the hero was trying to talk himself out of taking a drink. And when the little girl ran up to her Daddy.
All of them were done very well. You could definitely distinguish between characters but I believe either the little girl or the oldest teen.
I got this book via audiobook boom. I loved it. The author told two love stories without explicit sex and language. A very well written book.
Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. - Plato
I enjoyed the first book in the "Rose Island" series and this second book does not disappoint! This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone as well.
The narrator did an outstanding job bringing the story to life and differentiating between characters voices! I loved her voices.
This book is written by a Christian author so there are dialogues about God and prayer. It is very uplifting and inspirational. The story deals with PTSD, divorce, amnesia, loss, and love. The story has depth and caught my attention from the beginning. There are two separate stories going on at once and they intertwine at the end.
I'm looking forward to the next book by this talented author & narrator.

Keith and Jillian were happily married with two small children and one on the way. He was going on his next tour over seas. When he awoke, he was in the hospital asking for his wife. His ex wife came with their two teenagers they now share custody of. With his memories gone, the past seven years gone too.
Keith tries to remember what happened to his happy life, as he tries to recover memories, while his ex wife has moved on, and is now dating someone else.
The story was very enjoyable. I didn't want it to end. The beginning was very shocking to me, and I loved it right from the beginning. I recommend this book to everyone looking for a good romantic story.
Kristin Noel Fischer writes a beautiful story that is heart wrenching with a happy ending. She writes so well, I
I was so involved in the story, I didn't want to put it down.
Rebecca Rush's narration was very clear and very soothing. I especially loved the voice of Avery. Great energy and great narration.
Because tales should be told.
Audio books are always better because you can do chores, clean out the garage or drive while listening. This was an excellent Christian fictional story about second chances and God's loving care. The characters are likable and realistic. The story is grounded in real details and struggle that keep it from becoming corny or trite. It is a well-written hopeful story. Definitely worth listening to especially if you are struggling in your marriage or struggling with addiction.
Lily, the six year old Down's syndrome child, is my favorite character. She is kind, loving, and has an enthusiasm for life. She is completely devoted to her father.Both Lilia and Jillian are strong yet vulnerable main characters. Lilian is willing to give up her career to care for her Down's Syndrome daughter. Jillian is willing to allow her husband to homeschool their son while keeping her nursing job. Both display different pictures of feminine strength and faith.
No, but she did an excellent job. The personality of each character came out in her voice. She created unique characters and maintained their voice flawlessly throughout the book.
It is too long to listen to in one setting. It took me four days and I looked forward to every installment.
I received this book for free from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest review. Great book.
This book is by an author whom was new to me and performed by an extremely talented narrator. Parts of this book I absolutely loved and other things not so much. This book is written by a christian author who did a fantastic job with conveying realistic issues as PTSD and alcoholism. The story and characters had depth and were flawed like real people are. My favorite character was a small one named Avery whom the narrator did the most wonderful job portraying. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it and my likes and dislikes. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. This book is part of a series and it is a standalone book.
I received this audio book for an honest review, so here goes.
Anyone who is thinking of ending their marriage should listen to or read this story! It is so faith strengthening and touching. It dealt with some very sensitive material but was very well written and the reader did a beautiful job trying to sound like different people.
A book very well worth reading or listening to.
My name is Anna and I am from Greece. I am mostly a super crazy Editor, a completely crazy mum of two and of course I LOVE AUDIOBOOKS!!!
The story deals with PTSD, divorce, amnesia, loss, love, redemption and forgiveness. It is written by a Christian author so in its dialogues/monologues the true power of God frequently is mentioned. A great love story, also a great multi character plot with their everyday problems and how difficult is dealing with them until true love and hope conquers all.Excellent narration and a really wonderful book.
I received this book for free from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much for this book
Love this story about memory loss, returned love and a second chance!! Narrator Rebecca Rush did a great job with all of the characters!! Now I have to find the first book in this series!
Faith, Love, and Commitment
I loved the rebuilding of a marriage while dealing with the past, hurt, and confusions.
The least interesting was the beginning part, when we learn he is in the hospital and the lack of hospital procedures. I was also sick of hearing 'seven years'.
She brought sincere emotions to each of the characters.
I'm more of a conservative person when it comes to religion, but faith and prayers were very tangible characters in this book.

Jillian is the love of Keith's life. When he wakes up after being shot, he has amnesia and has forgotten the last seven years of his life. He doesn't remember that they are divorced, that Jillian is now with another man or that his sons are teenagers. As Jillian helps him to regain his memory, he remembers the terrible secret that drove him into his downward spiral. If they are to have a life together again, he must reveal the secret and hope for her forgiveness. I loved this story and the narration was well done. I would highly recommend Jillian's Promise.
