For the Wittgenstein family, the summer of 1915 was a time of both prosperity and unease, as the guns of war sound in the distance. But for eldest daughter Beata, it was also a summer of awakening. By glimmering Lake Geneva, the quiet Jewish beauty met a young French officer and fell in love.

I listened to this book in 2 days. This was a very good book. You get into the mom and then the daughter's lives. It has Jewish history that made me want to go back and read my history books, but the end came suddenly and just fizzled out.

Long and without much action

Overall

Reviewed: 08-23-08

The first 3 books in the series had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I listen while typing at work and most of the time I was so captured by the book that I forgot to type my assignment. Boy, I hope my supervisor didn't notice. I recommend listening to these books although I did feel that Soul Harvest stretched this one without much action. I can't wait to start the next book. Hope it has alot of action in it. With the other books, I was feeling as if these things had already taken place and I had missed the rapture. These guys are great writers and put together with the cast of narrators I am mesmerized.

On the morning of September 11, 2001, two men meet in a smoky stairwell of the World Trade Center. One is Eric Michaels, a driven financial manager from Los Angeles who has been busy climbing the corporate ladder, often at the expense of his wife and young son. The other is Jake Bryan, a New York City fireman devoted to his wife and daughter. In the midst of the crisis, Eric falls on the stairs and Jake stops to help him up. The two men freeze momentarily, stunned by the uncanny resemblance between them.

Carl Weber is the New York Times best-selling author of such fan favorites as So You Call Yourself a Man. The First Lady is the tale of a preacher's wife who learns she's dying and vows to find her husband another woman. There is no shortage of ladies who want her man, but will she be able to find a suitable replacement among the conniving church women?

This book is very well written. For those who like to read about drama in the church, this book is one of the best. However, what I love most of all was there was a different narrator for each character in the book which made it seem like a good play or drama to listen to. It was hard to stop listening. I just wished it could have went on and on. Thanks Carl Webber for another good book.

The phone call came on a hot July day, a day like any other for Marin County mom and freelance writer Tanya Harris. But this call from Tanya's agent was anything but ordinary, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: the chance to write a major Hollywood screenplay, a dream she had put aside long ago to devote her energies to her family. This time, Tanya knows she cannot refuse, even though she's torn about leaving her husband and daughters.

This book was really good. I was able to get into the characters of this book. Some of the characters I loved and some I hated. That's what makes a good book for me. I recommend this book for those who love Danielle Steel's book and for those who are reading Danielle Steel's books for the first time. You never get lost with the characters names and you
will either love them or hate them.
