From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war"....

Attention all potty-mouthed, cheap-wine-drinking mothers: Prepare to meet your match. Any bad thought you’ve had about your kids, Nicole Knepper has had worse. Much worse. It’s not that she doesn’t love her kids. It’s that she understands what a mind-f*?% it can be to try to civilize those wild little beasts.

Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared....

What did you love best about Unbroken?

The humility of this man who gave for his country.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Unbroken?

His return to Japan to visit the internment camp.

Have you listened to any of Edward Herrmann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I had to relisten to parts to "catch-up" on details when I listened again. I found it very enjoyable to re-listen to on a roadtrip to Buffalo, NY from Saint Robert, MO last Christmas.

Any additional comments?

In these dark times whereby millions of Americans (actual U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants) who aren’t willing to work, don’t serve in the military or in their communities, think that it is their “right” to be provided with “free” everything (housing, food, healthcare, childcare, mobile phones, etc.), and/or are born with the silver spoon in their mouths (not part of the generation that actually did the hard work to build the business that earned the wealth they enjoy) , part of the Hollywood elite who fail to “give back”, or just spoiled rotten’ children of lifelong hardworking parents who worked to provide their offspring with things to give them a better life than they had themselves … America needs Heroes. America needs to remember who and how this great country was founded and what it takes from a person to maintain the great freedom and lifestyle that we have the potential to enjoy.

Men are not from Mars and women are not from Venus. Individuals have different personal preferences for showing their affection for someone and for receiving in kind. Communication, verbal and non-verbal, definitely a key component in recognizing how to complement a partner.
