From the author of One Pink Line comes a story about letting go of the past and finding bravery in the depths of fear. Set on the sun-soaked beaches of Thailand and the rough waters of the Indian Ocean, The Unimaginable paints a vivid portrait of a young woman on a journey to find herself—and her harrowing fight for survival.
After twenty-eight years of playing by the rules, Jessica Gregory moves from her small Indiana town to Phuket, Thailand. But her newfound routine is upended with the arrival of Grant Flynn, a captivating, elusive man who is sailing around the world while trying to move on from a past tragedy. Jessica volunteers to help crew Grant's boat, Imagine, on a passage across the Indian Ocean and finds herself falling in love with him as the voyage gets underway. But when disaster strikes, Jessica must summon her courage as the crew is confronted by unspeakable terrors - and, aboard a boat named for such promise, comes the unimaginable.

This is an excellently written tale with interesting characters. By the middle of the book the unimaginable happens and I couldn't stop listening.
An enjoyable listen that held my interest. The ending is a bit predictable and rushed, but it ultimately delivered. The inspirations for the story were the most interesting, though. The narrator is very good, which makes listening a lot better.
Yes, an enjoyable story..
This narrator is very one dimensional with all the many books I've listened to her read. She always sounds the same and always gushes. It's the GUSHING that I'm getting tired of. I'm thinking she gets so many gigs because she must not charge as much as others in her field.
Yes because of the gorgeous places in the story. Josh Duhamel or Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence
One of my favorite books. Dina Silver did an amazing job of incorporating a romance, adventure, suspense, and tragedy all into one novel. I fell in love with each character and laughed and cried with them.
It was based on true events. Make sure to listen/ read the author's notes at the end of the book!!
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Jessica Gregory is a teacher that is looking to take control of her life. She has always lived in a small town in Indiana and decides after the death of her mother to move to Phuket, Thailand. She teaches English at one of the local schools. While she is there, she takes on a second job as a waitress at a marina. Jessica is enjoying being in Thailand but she begins to feel like she is in the same rut that she was in while living in Indiana. So, Jessica decides to put a flyer up that she would be willing to help work on a boat. She is contacted to help out on a boat and during her interview she realises the owner of the boat is someone she has met during her time in Thailand. His name is Grant Flynn and she begins to develop a crush on him. However, there are times that she can't get a good read on him, but he seems to be getting over something from his past. Jessica is finally hired to work on their boat. She thinks she is in for a great adventure but along the way something terrible happens. I can't give anymore past this point or the twist would be completely given away!
I enjoyed this book. It was entertaining and kept me interested the whole time. The second half of the book was so compelling that I couldn't put it down. The story was so intense and heartbreaking at times. I can't imagine going through any of the events that happen. Grant and Jessica both have to face things that they go through. This story ultimately is about letting go and going after what you really want in life. This story shows that people should do that before it's too late. Now, everyone listen to this book so that we can discuss what happens, because I'm dying over here!!!
Amy McFadden was really good with the delivery of the story
Dreams, Love, Life
I loved that they both were catching their dreams, she out of love for herself and he out of love for his dead wife.
Yes. I listened her in Aftershock and Afterburn by Sylvia Day and I loved her voice in that audiobook and I loved her voice now. These books are very different from each other and she made it flawlessly.
Love and Lost
This book is really different from every other I've ever read. I really have to start reading the synopsis of the books to at least be prepared to what I'd read. I totally loved it. I had me on edge half of the book. I cryed like a baby, my heart was hurting so badly when the unimaginable happend. I was so happy with the ending of the book. It was perfect.
This is like one of those truly awful made for TV American films. No cliche is excluded and no character leaves their eyeballs unrolled. A hammy cheesy effort. In fact a complete Croque.
