"A gripping, emotional tale you'll want to read in one sitting." (New York Times best-selling author, Julia London)
I had trouble with the start of this book as it hit a little to close, having had a very seriously ill grandchild. But I stuck with it and loved how things were revealed.
I kept forgetting this was a novel. If you want to get lost in a good book, this one is perfect. It'll have you in tears, laughing and appreciating the beauty of life, love and family.
Couldn't put it down! Bittersweet with sad & happy tears.. I will read her other books too! Loved the Narrator's enthusiastic reading, easy to listen to & follow along with, kudos! :)
New to audible - enjoy a variety of authors from Chick Lit/Romance to Biographies and interesting personal stories! Nice to meet you .. :)
Pain that turned into healing, redemption, forgiveness ..all told by the most awesome story teller.
The healing power of forgiveness theme ...
It was as if she was there and related the events to me with voice inflection and expressive tones ... she was definitely a value add!

SOME OF NICHOLAS SPARKS BOOKS, BECAUSE OF THE EMOTIONAL HIGHS AND LOWS
PETER, THE EVER FAITHFUL
CHAPTER ONE THRU THE LAST CHAPTER
THIS BOOK HAS IT ALL
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” ― Dr. Seuss
Yes, I would recommend it as a light story, perfect for a summer read.
Sophie's mother: until she appeared in the book, the story had no life.
No extreme reaction except to enjoy it.
I was taken by this story of hardship and by the lives of so many beautiful characters. This is a story of true love and unbreakable friendship. It was captivating and as the chapters went by, the story bloomed into an account of perseverance, hope and joy.
The only difference between the print and audible edition is the tone of the reader. I would recommend that there are different people reading instead of tones in one person's voice. The person reading these books tries to differentiate between the characters but I think her capability was a little short. I think it would not make a difference to the listener if this was not a series.
The interconnection between the characters.
I would but I would prefer if they use another voice for other characters instead of her voice trying to change from female to male and character to character.
The Color of Heaven
I would love to see this series as a movie, a series of movies, or vignettes of a movie.
Not having paid for it.
Read maybe but listen, definately NOT.
I didn't get far enough to decide.
This one is in the refund pile.
The book was wonderful! I listened at a faster speed as the narrator was speaking just so slow.
Overall, I did enjoy the story and found it interesting. I felt a little drained after reading it. My favorite type of book is usually a little more light and funny and this wasn't that at all.
The narration didn't bother me as it did some of the others that reviewed this book, I thought she did a nice job portraying the various characters.
I will read another by this author because I like the quality of her writing.
