    "Well Worth the Listen"

    This was an excellent book. You will like this book if you enjoy well developed christian romances with a flair of mystery. I have enjoyed all of Dee Henderson's Uncommon Hero's series books. It is hard to determine which is better but this one is definitely well worth the time and money. The theme of this book is really heart warming.

    "Excellent!"
    What did you love best about True Courage?

    I love that it is a Christian based "action/romance". It held my interest and even my kids enjoyed the parts they heard. I love the twist and turns, which you don't really see coming.


    What other book might you compare True Courage to and why?

    I enjoy listening to action books like The Lincoln Lawyer. I was so thankful when I stumbled upon Dee Wallace's series. I prefer to listen/read books that are Christianed based - as it allows me to let my children over hear parts while in the car. Christian values, with the twist and turns of action/adventure.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Now that would be a spoiler!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was on the edge of my seat - didn't want to turn it off when I needed to.


    Any additional comments?

    A great read! I have recommended to my friends as well!

    "Amazing Story"
    What did you love best about True Courage?

    The way it kept you holding on to the end


    What was one of the most memorable moments of True Courage?

    When the heroine Caroline disappears


    Have you listened to any of Tom Strechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    About the same


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What would you do for family?


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks Dee Henderson for another great story!

    "PERFORMANCE"
    Would you listen to True Courage again? Why?

    ABSOLUTELY! I'd listen to almost anything that Tom Stechhulte reads for audible books. He's my favorite performer. And combine him with Dee Henderson and it's a wonderful gift for the listener. This book is only one of many that join the two and they are all worthwhile one of a member's credits.

    "Light summer listen"

    This is part of a trilogy of romance novels usually involving the military. It was a nice listen and didn't require a lot of concentration. Not serious literature but very entertaining.

    "Great potential, but ..."

    This is one of those books that has a great story yet it's execution is lacking. I'd guess it's an example of the author who doesn't want to keep editing and re-editing - or writing and rewriting ... She stopped too soon. For example, after reading a few other books by this author, I noticed two similarities throughout all - even tho the characters have different names from one book to the other, all the male characters were essentially the same person. I believe this author was trying to model her male characters based on her idea of Jesus, really! Which means they were, well, as perfect as a human being can be in values, actions and emotional responses. That is, no chinks in their emotional makeup, no real signs of anger b/c the author seems to believe that for a man to express anything but a twinge of this or that feeling (shown only by subtle expressions, like clenched teeth or jaw, or whatever) would be a dreadful sign of weakness. Being 'real' isn't exactly valued here, with all the messiness that implies. But they do seem to be an idealized persona; and after all, this is both a mystery and romance with Christian foundations&aspirations. Each subsequent book in the series shows yet another person (of a small group of orphans who weren't chosen by adopting parents, and thus decided instead to form their own family) - who, one by one, find their way to Jesus. Born again. Actually, although I'm not a practicing Christian by any stretch, I still was drawn in by these characters and their story. My only complaint is that a writer with such a great story and characters didn't take the time or effort or get the feedback that might've helped her to truly make this a literary achievement. That is, to not rely on stereotypical characterization but instead to create 3D people, warts and all. Lastly, to not use a word so often that it brings attention to the word choice instead of the story it's trying to convey. Yeah, that one word for this author is ROILED. Great word but not six times b/c it stands out a lot. This roiled and that roiled. Now whenever I hear that word, I can't help but think of this author and smile.
    I do hope she keeps writing and honing her craft b/c she obviously has a talent for the hardest part of writing, for many: coming up with unique story ideas and creating characters that, intermittently at least, touch the heart. But hold the relish when it comes to 'roiled.'

    "SAPPY!"
    What would have made True Courage better?

    not going on and on moralizing about things that have no business in a mystery novel - come on.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the readers took themselves so serious and it came across very saaappppy.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It would be hard to find any. I kept hoping and it was all I could do to finish it. I cannot believe anyone with half an education could listen to this stuff!


    Any additional comments?

    This was so incredibly sappy. I am simply shocked that stuff like this is out there and that people both 1.) read/listen to it and 2.) think it is good (4.4 average, are you kidding!!)
