"This is an entertaining and engaging faith-based tale sure to hit best-seller lists and the awards circuit.” (Publishers Weekly)
I am a huge Lynn Austin fan and found this audio book to be just as good as reading it myself. I downloaded the book before a long solo car trip and couldn't help wanting to take another car trip to finish the book. The Narrator did a great job and I felt as though her pitch and delivery depicted the era in time as well. I would highly recommend this book and loved that I could clean the house and listen at the same time!
This was a touching story to me. I enjoyed each part. The story tells the story of 4 generations of women who made a difference for what they wanted to see change in their era. Great listen. As always, I have enjoyed this book by Lynn Austin.
Excellent! This volume can be compared to I Cor 13. It's very hard not to find yourself in one of these situations.
I enjoy reading Lynn Austin's historical fiction. Her books oh the Civil are awesome as well.
This book was extremely well written and narrated in a typical Lynn Austin style. It kept me on the edge of my chair eagerly awaiting more! You won't be disappointed!! I was go a way with something special after listening to her books, feeling like I personally know each character and disappointed for it to end. Which book shall I order next? Lynn's stories are more than entertaining, they are also educational and spiritually uplifting!
Because this booked flipped through time a lot, listening to it was challenging at first. The talented reader helped in this regard. The story was riveting, a well spun historical novel. I enjoyed spending several days, including a road trip, with these characters.
