I've watched the television series based on the Walt Longmire character so decided to listen to the books. I'm glad I did. It took me a bit to adjust to the differences of the Longmire character between the book and the TV series, but I believe I'm going to enjoy the books more than the TV series. Not surprisingly the characters of Walt Longmire, Vic and Henry all have more depth in the book. I'm anxious to listen to the next installment in the series.

I look for Kristen Hannah's books

I've listened to several Kristen Hannah's books. I always enjoy them. They offer both realism and hope.

Informative and interesting account of the rescue of two businessmen from Iran at the time of the revolution. A story of commitment, loyalty and integrity. A story if true heroes on every level.

This is my second book in the series. I have found the relationship (or lack of relationship) between the heroine and hero a bit tiresome. Perhaps I'm too much of a romantic , but it was never clear to me why Serenity was so resistent to Daniel.

Also, I am not an expert on the Amish, but I question the negative portrayal of their community. Though I have no doubt that it's an imperfect group, mI think there are more positives than the author has described thus far in the series.

Enjoyed the book. I always enjoy a good mystery. I also liked the length of the book. It was my first venture with this author. I will seek out more work by this writer.

I have listened to several Kristin Hannah books. She is a gifted writer. There were things I liked about the book. I enjoyed learning more about the challenges of life in Alaska - especially at the time the story took place. I appreciated the way Lenora and her mother came to love the wildness of the beauty and adapted to life and the challenge of survival in the environment.

I did get a bit tired of the repetition of the father's issues although it may have needed to be repeated over and over for the reader to understand the hopelessness of the situation.

I also found the ending a bit predictable. That may come because of my familiarity with the author's work.

A good mystery. Perhaps my favorite Tracy Crosswhite mystery so far. Listening to them in order.

I enjoyed this first book in the Liz Talbot series despite the fact that it involved a "guardian spirit". I usually don't like stories that involve communication with spirits from the dead. I will at least try the next book in the series.

I have enjoyed listening to several of Kristen Hannah's books. The Nightingale is my absolute favorite. I liked this one particularly when it moved into "the story" told by the mother. I thought it was informative about the the siege of Leningrad. I gave the book four stars because I got a bit tired of all the descriptions in the early parts of the book and I felt the characters were a bit one dimensional in the first half.

Too Painful! Too Sad!!! To Frightening!!!!!
