This book made me cry through the last 30 minutes. It is a well told story that I couldn't put down. The narrator, on the other hand, was annoying. He tried much too hard on the southern accents and most of them came out sounding like those comedians that make fun of rednecks. It was pretty bad and I'm not that hard to impress as far as narration goes. Just read the book.
Seemed realistic and very interesting. Good character development and I liked how the two subplots wove together to the benefit each character and mutually provide what they were needing.
Jerry Jenkins is such a gifted author/writer. This book is so exceptional in the character development and subilties that line its pages. I'm enjoying the narrator and have no problem with his reading at all. After awhile his voice is that of any other southern personality. I'm in the first book with two more sections yet to go and already don't want to see it end because the issues the characters are involved with could be me or someone in my family and I know Jerry Jenkins is using this book to answer spiritual needs with God's Word. I recommend this as a gift to those you love who enjoy a good book on the road. I'm walking more so I can listen to it more.
could have done without the singing, but what a story. the ending made me sob.
never have I read detail in a persons death that made you feel the pain.
so well done.what an amazing story line.
I love really really good suspense...historical fiction... "slice of life"...coming of age books...ok, anything! :)
Wonderful story of sin and forgiveness and God's love and pursuit of us. What i liked least is that the narrator's voice was so wrong for this book that i couldn't even finish it. I wanted to love this book so bad! If you were to get a different narrator, i would gladly buy it again.
Jerry Jenkins is a wonderful writer, i love all his books.
A different narrator! Narrator used the same manly cranky voice for the preacher's wife AND the children. I never knew who was speaking, it was terrible. I could only finish half of the book; his voice was so grating on my nerves.
Absolutely! This story is truly great. I usually like a good storyline and if the narrator does a good job in telling it, I am impressed. The book has an interesting plot and the narrator does an excellent job! I stayed up late listening to this one... It's amazing how I couldn't stop!
The end. I had tears streaming down my face and my heart was full. What a great spiritual uplift!
