In 1770, Heather Douglas is desperate to escape a brewing scandal in her native Scotland. Penniless and hoping for a fresh start far away, she signs a seven-year indenture and boards a British merchant vessel headed to Virginia. Widowed planter Matthew Stewart needs someone to help raise his two young children. The tall blond standing on the Alexandria quay doesn't look like much after her harrowing sea voyage, but there's a refinement about her that her filthy clothing cannot hide. Could God be leading him to take this unknown indentured servant as his wife?

This is the first book I've read from this author. It was a pleasure to listen to and I would recommend it to anyone who prefers to read Christian related books but also for anyone as it is a historical romance novel as well. The story is well written and all of the narration was great - except the voice for Heathar, which was jarring compared to the rest of the narration - but that did not change my recommendation. This book was easy to listen to and it kept my attention so that I 'read' it in one day.

Days after barely escaping 1889 with their lives, the Carsons, siblings from the present day, resume their search for their missing parents in 1918. While Adam and his pregnant wife, Bridget, settle in Minnesota, unaware of a wildfire that will kill hundreds, Greg seeks clues in his great-grandparents' Mexico, where he finds love, danger, and enemies. At the same time, Natalie, the ambitious journalist, follows a trail to World War I France, and teen twins Cody and Caitlin rekindle a friendship with an old Pennsylvania friend haunted by her past.

Another excellent time travel story from John Heldt. Part 2 of Carson Chronicles is written well and the narration was excellent. I have 'read' (listened) to all of Heldt's time travel books and they draw you in and am left wanting the next book to continue the story of the Carson family traveling through time. After the Carson parents get stuck in time their 5 children discover what has happened to their parents and they go through a portal to the past to find them. The family story continues with book 3 and it can’t come soon enough. Absolutely recommended.

Frederick Douglass - cliff notes. Short introduction to who Fredrick Douglass was and how he worked to abolish slavery. Born a slave, taught himself how to read, did great things in his life. Very interesting, well written and the narrator did a good job. I would recommend this book if you just want an overview to his life.

Sun Tzu said: The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected. The art of war, then, is governed by five constant factors, to be taken into account in one's deliberations, when seeking to determine the conditions obtaining in the field. These are: (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth; (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline. The Moral Law causes the people to be in complete accord with their ruler, so that they will follow him regardless of their lives, undismayed by any danger.

This book was interesting but not really my thing. The narrator didn't help this book either. I will probably listen to another version of this book using a different narrator to see if that makes any difference. If you're into war and history etc then this book is for you.
