I really like the story, but...

I was really enjoying the story but the language is so bad, I just couldn't get through it.
I'll never understand WHY a talented author would put so much (useless) profanity in a novel. It's one thing to use it for the "shock factor" but to use the "F bomb" over and over and over is senseless.
I've never, EVER heard anyone say "I would have enjoyed that book much more if it had more vulgar profanity in it".
There is never anything classy about vulgar profanity.

When I first started listening, I thought this was going to be the typical, predictable love story. It was anything but... I laughed out loud many times and even got teary eyed once. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, another twist or turn comes along.

Great story!

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns to keep you listening. There are times when you can literally picture what is talking place.

It's a very sweet story with good Christian values. It's mostly predictable but has a few twists to keep it interesting enough to stay engaged.

Painfully slow

I listened and listened then I listened some more and just couldn't wrap my head around it. Could never grasp the stay line.

Great story but rough language

This is another one I will listen to again, even in spite of the language. (I wish you would offer a PG version of all the books) The ending completely caught me off guard!

I'll be listening to this one again.

I got as far as chapter 13 and just could not get into it. It never grabbed me and made me want to get absorbed in it. Too many characters. One minute they're talking about a war way back when and the next minute they're taking selfies on cellphones.
I wish I could a refund...
