I have wanted to read/listen to a Mary Coneally book for a long time. Glad to find this one on audible.com! I had just finished listening to a very dark secular novel that had elements in common with my own writing. I'd also begun listening to another secular best-selling novel with major commonalities with my own manuscripts so I want to listen. Both were pretty depressing. The Christian world view and voice of hope were notably absent. Reasons I listen/read Christian novels and write Christian historical romance. So when I got this download I jumped right in. What a nice break from the yucky feeling I had listening to a voice devoid of faith. A concern I had about this story, that pulled me out of the listen, was that I have a daughter about this age and both the H/H were so lacking in common sense imho. My hubby, when I described the scenario to him commented that so many young people are into extreme sports, etc., these days, that for them this wouldn't be an issue (not about extreme sports but what they are doing in the story with the caves and the psychopath etc.) To me, though, this story was a great wonderful antidote to having just had two bummer listens. The author's voice is uplifting and she had a unique story and interesting characters. I felt like listening to Mary's book reset my bummed out reading experience and got me back on track!
Tell us about yourself
the narrator has spoiled the good read that this book is.buy the book and read it than listening to this narration.
I would recommend you actually read the story rather than listen to it. It's a childishly written and expressed romance of the old west. Way too much repeating of individuals thoughts and feelings. It's good for a 12 year old!
The thing I liked least about this was Julia's attitude. She is supposed to be a Christian but she's not kind to others. Especially those less fortunate. She is just not a nice person. So selfish and full of herself. She's the main character but more like a villain!
Not really. I did not care for the voice and it was not formatted correctly. The narrator would say Chapter 15 but it was reading on my device as chapter 23. Things like that.
I liked the history about the cave.
Baby voice for females who were strong characters.
Beginning was exciting.
Always! I've issues with my sight and reading becomes increasingly difficult.
All the characters meshed together to form this wonderful epic.
When the damsel in distress became the hero.
