This book had a different slant on other prepper books I have read. I liked that in this book it is about people helping people. Of course there are always the bad and greedy people of the world. I did not like the short blurb in it about politics. Glad they did not go on any longer about that. It is amazing what Allison does. Cannot wait or hoping for a book 2.

Cute time travel story set in medival times. When Marion feels the pull of a tree at the beach she suddenly is in the 1100's. Some believe that people time travel for a reason. Do you? Read this story and see. Jessie Hart did a good job of narrating this book.

I liked this cute story. It shows a strong woman who knows what she wants in a man. Tabitha goes to the big city and returns home to her small town. She feels it has not changed but has she? Meghan Kelly does a fine job with her performance. This is a nice relaxing read.

I thought this book was done very well. It was a great listen. Mystery, intrigue, and drama. This book reminded me very much of Divergent. Well worth the credit even though it is shorter than some books. It will keep you listening until the very end. I am hoping for a sequel to this book. I need to know what happens to all these characters. Well written and well narrated. Courtney Parker gave a great performance.

All of the brooch books have been good. I especially enjoyed this one as they time travel back to the 19th century. It has a little mystery in it and does get resolved by the end. I love the love stories in this series and the personalities of the characters. Great book made even better by the performance of the narrator, Teri Schnaubelt. Wow to do all the accents and sound like a man to boot. I am impressed.

This classic story of adventure during the Scottish war for independence follows the exploits of young Archie Forbes as he fights in defense of his family and his nation. Archie crosses paths with such iconic figures of Scottish history as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce in Henty's beloved historical fiction title. This edition includes the full, unabridged text of In Freedom's Cause.

I usually like historical novels. This novel seemed more like a text book. The narrator just read the text. I liked the story but did not like the questions right in the middle of the novel. Missed someone giving a performance as other book are performed.
