    "Lynn Austin strikes again!"

    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!

    "Though Waters Roar"

    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.

    "An Enjoyable Read. Big Fan."

    A great story blessed with Lynn Austin's gift for historical fiction. I very much appreciate her reliance on scripture as the basis for her stories.
