Publisher's Summary

Mysteriously banished to live with demanding Aunt Augusta on Florida's remote, untamed Merritt island of 1904, young Emma-Lee Palmer discovers a dark family secret. Befriended by a kindly sea captain, Emma-Lee and Aunt Augusta discover courage, renewed hope, and the importance of family in this transcendent story of healing and redemption through God's unconditional love.

Inspired by a true story, The Distant Shore is a powerful blend of action, adventure, romance, and the quest within each of us to find our heart's home. Love, after all, is never too lost or too late.

    "A Gift to A Dark World"

    I was given this audiobook in exchange for a honest reviews. My heart is right this moment so swelled with emotion and joy of the bueaty of the storyline. I am in awe of it true love of God and family ties. The narrator is Lee Ann Howlett who has so much talent and voice scale I am amazing and overjoyed to listen to everything she does.

    Story
    "Great for kids!"
    Would you listen to The Distant Shore again? Why?

    I'll probably let my children listen to it next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the story teller reminds me of a dear aunt or sweet grandmother lively reading a bedtime story to her children, with voices and a good tone.


    What about Lee Ann Howlett’s performance did you like?

    This is an old timey story and she gave it a good old timey feel. Reminded me of Anne of Green Gables.

    "Enjoyable and inspirational story"

    I really liked this book. It really pulls at your heartstrings, seeing how a family handles its joys and sorrows with their faith in God. It was really rather inspirational to see a little girl's faith acted out, penetrating every aspect of her life, from how she shows love to those around her, to those she forgives. The characters were really well-developed and are easy to form an emotional connection to. This book had action, romance, tragedy, and other difficult situations, but all were written in a "clean" manner - not too much graphic detail. It is easily something that could be shared with the whole family, or that you can read or listen to without worry about young children seeing or hearing too much. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book, and I enjoyed the narration. The narrator has a pleasant voice and her reading felt effortless and comfortable. This is the first book I have read by Debora Coty, but I would gladly try some more of her books, and I highly recommend this one.
