    "Wonderul!"

    Another really wonderful book by W. Dale Cramer. Calling it a Mister Mom type of book is really not accurate. It has a lot more layers and depth to it than that, but is also a thoroughly enjoyable read. And this is the best work to date that I have heard from Ed Sala, the narrator. He really takes you into the center of the story, and you hate to leave this family when the book is done.

    "Picture Perfect"

    A most enjoyable read. The characters come to life and speak to all ages. The book had me smiling all the way. The message is simple and true.

    "A marvelous story well-told."

    Superbly done! Summer of Light evoked the right combination of laughter and the light of revelation. It has become one of my favorites.

    "Wonderfully inspiring"

    This is one of my favorite books from my nearly nine years as an audible member. I love Nick Brannigan. This story takes some hilarious turns and pulls you in. The narrator is great, and you'll love it. I highly recommend it.

    "Summer of Light"

    This book mentions God a lot. It is the running theme of the book. I would have liked to have known that ahead of time.

    "We would give it 10 stars if we could!!!"

    This is easily one of our all-time favorite audio books! The story is delightful. Dale Cramer's sense of humor is the best. Somehow he manages to show the differences in a woman's opinion vs. a man's ... without making it look like husband bashing! Ed Sala's narration couldn't have been better. He is perfect for this story. We wish there was a sequel! We highly recommend this book and will definitely listen to it again.

    "Maryland listener"

    I truly enjoyed this book and had a good laugh too! I am glad that Mick was able to connect with his son and all the adventures he had with his 3 children whiles staying at home with them. Good read!

    "Fantastic!"

    First I was laughing - then I was crying and I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. I could barely stop listening to do anything else.
