When Persephone Lancaster receives a marriage proposal from the ill-tempered Duke of Kielder, she refuses - and then reconsiders. The obscene sum of money he's offering Persephone would save her family from ruin. With her characteristic optimism, she travels to the far reaches of Northumberland to wed a greatly feared stranger. Lodged deep in a thick forest infested with wild dogs, the Duke's castle is as cold and forbidding as the Duke himself, a man with terrible scars on his body and his soul.
If you could sum up Seeking Persephone in three words, what would they be?
I loved the story, had a bit of humor and suspense. I do prefer books with a stronger faith development. If I am going to use precious time listening to something I want to feel more inspired to draw closer to Christ.
What did you like best about this story?
Adam! He is my favorite character. I like that the sequel includes him. I love how he has this dangerous reputation that he has projected because of his physical tragedy, yet he is a gentle soul on the inside. His actions helped me understand how peoples actions are sometimes a result of insecurity
What about Aubrey Warner’s performance did you like?
Does the voices well!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Adams roughness made me laugh once I realized his motive.
They call her the Queen of the Outcasts. Maviah, a woman whose fate was sealed on her birth by this world - unwanted, illegitimate, female, a slave - subject to the whims of all. But then she met a man named Yeshua who opened her eyes. She found strength in his words, peace from the brutal word around her. Because of what he taught her, she has gathered her own traveling kingdom of outcasts deep in the desert, wielding an authority few have seen.
Suspense and romance!! Danger...I love the story and how he used Mavias story to bring the gospel to new light. One of the best books I've ever read. I understand better about Jesus and the father, what that means to me in my life.

Summer Abernathy wakes up one morning to find her husband missing, three men in her home intent on finding him, and the life she's been living based on a lie. Which Kyle Abernathy did she marry? The computer programmer she met in line at the bank? Or the one who was apparently using that image as a cover story? The search for her husband - and answers - takes Summer ever deeper into a world of organized crime, where people are used one moment and discarded the next.
I loved to finally hear a good Christian suspense mystery that has faith ,forgiveness and trust in God woven into the story. I do not spend enough time in the word as it is so I always look for stories that tell of hardship and how they overcome them with Gods help and guidance
Winner of the 2001 Christy Award, Lynn Austin captures the turmoil of the Civil War in this stirring novel. From vast plantations to the cramped closets of the Underground Railroad, it follows one young woman's inspiring journey of risk and sacrifice.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would definitely recommend this book! I would encourage my friends that are struggling to understand God's master plan for their lives to read it.
What did you like best about this story?
The love and care Caroline showed her slaves and the love and loyalty they returned to her. It was good to hear a story about caring slave owners. And it helps paint a picture of how each race is special in God's eyes and should be in ours too. I also loved the natural and spiritual encouragement Eli and the other slaves gave each other.
Which scene was your favorite?
My favorite scene was when Caroline bowed her will to God and prayed, "Not my will but thine" and the ensuing peace that followed.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Oh, I couldn't stop listening. This story gave great historical detail about the horrors of war.
Any additional comments?
i am encouraged... I know I shall go through the refiners fire and come out like gold!
