Ellie Brown thought she'd finally escaped her stifling hometown of Broadlands, Illinois; med school was supposed to be her ticket out. But when her father has a stroke, she must return home to share his care with her older sister, Amelia, who's busy with her own family. Working as a paramedic, Ellie's days are monotonous, driving an ambulance through streets she'd hoped never to see again.

Befuddled by depiction of character fickleness.

I struggled to finish this story.

Both sisters were amazingly naive and fickle, even when someone was pointing a gun at them, (they just couldn't decide how they should respond).

The author seemed more concerned with filling the page with irrelevant character-thoughts than providing coherent subject matter.

I wanted to like this story, I expected a great "aha" moment from both sisters as they became aware that Caleb was a trustworthy, albeit troubled friend. And even if the ending were intended to offer a twist, how could self righteous Ellie maintain a secret correspondence with the man responsible for destroying her sister's life?

I just couldn't keep my excitement when I saw that the "Voice in the Wind" has a sequel. "An Echo in the Darkness" had been more than very satisfying and awesome. Once again Francine Rivers had done a great job captivating a reader and a listener.

I believe this is the best book that I've listened so far from audible.It has substance and well-written, the story would take you right to where all the characters and the settings are and you don't want to leave. Very impressive writing.
