    Story
    "The temple is rebuilt."
    What did you love best about Song of Redemption?

    How King Hezzikiah grew to be such a man of God. I loved the push and pull between Shebnah and Eliakim. The stories of the women showed such strength and the willingness to serve others.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I would have preferred a male voice or maybe a male and female for the different characters but it was good.

    "If You Liked Gods and Kings, Keep Going With This"

    As I said in my review of Gods and Kings, this book is also a good read for guys as well as for the ladies. I have read the first 3 books in this series, and I have found all three to be well written and very engaging. You won't get bored by these books; that is for sure!

    Story
    "Fascinating and Inspirational"

    I won't write a long review since I wrote a long one on the whole series for the first book. This covers Hezekiah's Tunnel and I found it fascinating. Especially to think that something so ancient is still in use today. Amazing. I really enjoyed this book and the ones before and after it. I did find them uplifting and inspirational. I have liked books, two this one, and book three in this series best. Don't think you can go wrong if you are looking for something inspirational to read when you choose this book. I have to admit I'm going to have to go back and read Kings and Chronicles again. I particularly like the bits with the prophet Isaiah in them.

    "Another Excellent Book by Lynn Austin"

    Once again I truly enjoyed this book. Once I started it, I could not put it down. It really makes the Bible come alive for you. Mrs. Austin did a fantastic job on the development of the story from Biblical and historical facts.

    "Wonderful account of Hezekiah's tunnel."

    Having walked through the tunnel in the Holy Land, I was fascinated with this story of its construction. Historically and religiously accurate of the times, with interesting characters. I highly recommend this series.

    I love to be totally immersed in a good story. I love the thrill of the middle of a great book. Thinking about it all day... wondering what will happen and then enjoying the conclusion. Nothing frustrates me more than an author who weaves an intense story line, builds interesting characters and then dumps me into despair by ending it all abruptly. Just hate that. I relish the "ahhhhh" at the end of a great story.

    Story
    "For once it is making sense!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely... Not only will I recommend it... I am buying this whole series for my mom.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the vast amount of research that Ms Austin has done. She has made it all come to life for me. It has been so great to be able to understand the prophets roles, the reason for all the idolatry and even the landscaping of Judah. I have just loved it.


    Which character – as performed by Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

    I really liked them all. I was not crazy over Ahaz though. Glad he is done.


    If you could rename Song of Redemption, what would you call it?

    Freedom from Fear


    Any additional comments?

    This series has been thrilling. I listen with my Bible open... looking at maps and loving how it makes it seem so real. AWESOME
