As soon as I heard Nick Sarandon's voice narrating this book, it brought me right back to the end of Yellowstone Redemption, and all the adventures of Chase's journey so far! I loved this story, and it filled in things I'd been wondering about when Chase returned from his spirit journey in his other book. Well done, Peggy L Henderson and Nick Sarandon! Another fantastic story!!

Another great story that was told by the fantastic Meghan Kelly, who knows how to get into the characters and make them come to life! I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one in the series. It's a nice story, but not too 'tame' for my liking. Enjoyed it!

I thought this was a nice story, but a bit predictable. Even though I guessed what was going to happen, it was still a pretty good story to listen to. The narrator did a good job telling the story.

This was a good book, but a tough subject, showing how easy someone can get trapped into starting drugs and some of the dangers of them. The narrator was okay, but some of the characters sounded too much alike.

This book had a lot of layers to it, that were slowly unraveled and I enjoyed it all the way through. I loved the characters, and how they interacted with each other. This was my first book by Barbara Davis and I'll be looking for my next one soon. The narrator did a great job telling the story and made me feel like she was the main character.

Reverend Johnson is in the business of granting second chances to those deserving a new start, even if it means bending the rules of time travel on occasion. In Gabe McFarlain’s case, he may have gone too far... Abandoned by his father, and raised in a whorehouse, Gabe has grown bitter to the world. Fueled by revenge and hatred, his actions leave him facing the hangman’s noose. Accepting certain death, he wakes up in a time and place that is as foreign as the tender touch of the woman who rescues him.

This was my 2nd time listening to this book, and I must say, I enjoyed it even more the 2nd time through. Cody Roberts tells this fantastic story in a way that makes you feel like you are living it. His characters have their own personality and sound, so you always know who is talking. Great story, Peggy L Henderson!
