"Overall, Alexander achieves a wonderfully balanced mix of romance, adventure, and humor. She guides the reader on an unforgettable journey from Colorado to Idaho, from brokenness to healing, from ashes to beauty. Revealed is a charming, compelling story with a strong message of restoration through Christ. It will easily sweep an adult female audience off [their] feet." (ChristianBookPreviews.com)
This sequel to Rekindled was wonderful. The narrator did an excellent job. This was my second time to hear a book by Tamera Alexander and I am hooked on her writing. The only thing I did not like in both books was the use of the word Whore over and over. I really don't feel words like that should be used in books that are labeled Christian fiction. The reason I read and listen only to Christian Fiction is for that very reason. I know they are safe from profanity, vulgarity and crude language. Other than that it was perfect in every way.
Overall, I enjoyed Revealed and found it easy to listen to. Concepts of God's grace, forgiveness, friendship and love weave into a feel good story that I believe most will enjoy. My only critique is some points seemed to be drawn out (Matthew's initial hate for Anna Belle...Anna Belles own diminshed self love). These ideas slowed down the book. However, if you like romance and redemption stories you'll enjoy this one.
I enjoy books by Tamera Alexander very much. I've read several and find them difficult to put down. This particular book was more predictable than some, but still held my attention very well. Stories of forgiveness, redemption, and love are always encouraging. I am looking forward to reading much more by this author.
Wife, Mother, multitasker. Love "reading" books while gardening, refinishing furniture, doing mundane chores.
This book had much richness to it with the period writing, and narration aspect. Good story line with many twists and turns. The author did a fabulous job of fleshing out the characters and their feelings.
Yes, I always find omething new when I listen a second time.
Despite anger and hostility, love will prevail.
I like Ms. McCulloh's performance, always easy to understand.
Can't wait to continue the series.
Homemaker and retired homeschool mom. I love reading historical fiction with an inspirational message.
Probably wouldn't recommend it unless someone was going on a long trip. It was a good story, but for my taste it was long on details that didn't add that much to the story. Nice theme, good ending, but should have been more like 10 hrs. than 14.
The story flowed.
Well written, good story however I feel the author try to use every opportunity to put across the usual religious messages, being a non-church goer myself, I'd found it a bit bored and unrealistic at parts. Overall, I enjoy the reading, the author was able to captivate me to read on till the end regardless.
