I have read everyone of Karen Kingsbury's novels except this one. I love them all, some more than others, this is ranked kinda low for me. The narrator was a little overwhelming in the "emotional" parts of the book. A decent listen, but unless you want to catch up to the amazing sequel A MOMENT OF WEAKNESS, not sure i'd waste a book credit.
Very emotional and touching story. Barbara Caruso does an excellent job narrating. You can feel the empathy in her voice as she does the different characters. Personally, she is one of my favorite narrators.
Christian novel reader
A wonderful story of loss falling away redemption and forgiveness, As with many of Karen Kingsbury's books this is the First in a series of 3, great Christian Novel with Excellent narration,
I've listened to many many books. Barbara Caruso, the one who read this book, is the best I've heard. She has a very comfortable voice, great emotion, varied voices...excellent, just excellent!!!!!
At first I truly struggled to listen to the story because of the grief I felt in my heart for the characters, it was though my life story was being told again. As I continued because I couldn't stop, I am reminded of God's love and His faithfullness. We live in a fallen world and tragedy is going to happen but it is not God's fault.
I've tried several Kingsbury books now and most of them are very depressing. They always have a message, but you are left feeling very down until you get to the message.
I've tried 5. No more.
This narrator is very one dimensional. There is little if any voice difference between characters. The story is read well, but not performed.
THe story line is about as sad as can be.
TOO much emotion! By the end of the book I really couldn't stand to listen to her say "Daddy & Alicia" one more time.
First experience with this author &/or narrator. My first review & I'm a long time Audible listener. It really was THAT bad.
