    "Life changing and transforming..."

    Loved it! Narrator did a great job! Easy to listen to. couldn't stop listening at times. We're reading this book as apart of a book club at our church and it was just what we all needed right before our retreat!
    I could relate to all main characters in some form and I was right there on that emotional journey with all of them.
    Message that stuck with me was, sticking with what stirs me... that was the first message that has opened the door for the Spirit to do His work... It's been a great journey with these women and the disciplines learned has reawaken my hunger to delve deeper into God's love.

    "Amazing Story!"

    I love this book. Albeit "fiction", the truths & teachings found within are solid and Life-Changing! I couldn't wait to get back to listening to it. The narrator has the most beautiful, peaceful voice. Perfect for conveying the essence of the writer's words! Can't wait to listen to the next one!

    Story
    "Mixed feelings"

    I had a hard time getting through this book,. Even though it had interesting characters with their own interesting story lines, I felt like I was going through a class that was online where I was not involved. I could see some women relating to one character and it could be used by God to change their life. If I had been living the story, taking the class I might have found my own walk expressed. I was not able to do that as a listener (reader) of this book.

    love to read and love audio books!Favorite authors: Marcia Willett,Nevil Shute,Mary Stewart,and Jacqueline Winspear. I could go on and on but wont bore you! I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.
