Chessa's husband, Darren Richards, is a behind-the-scenes narcissistic abusive alcoholic. None of that changes when he becomes the leading candidate for president of the United States. Chessa's worries about her husband reach a fevered pitch as he closes in on winning the nation's highest office. How can she support his candidacy, even if it will mean becoming first lady? Meanwhile Darren's opponent, Leif Mitchell, is selected from his humble life as a stable hand and country rock singer to run for political office.

If you could sum up The Peace Maker in three words, what would they be?

Excitement, Real, Relevant

Who was your favorite character and why?

That is difficult. Both Leif and Chessa are my favorite characters equally. Leif has a strong and easy character that has integrity and someone you know will do the right thing. The kind of person we want to be. Chessa is similar in that she has to become strong to overcome the control of her husband and his family by doing the right thing and trust God. Both are peacemakers.

What about Elli Raven’s performance did you like?

Easy listening voice and excitement.

If you could take any character from The Peace Maker out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Again, both Leif and Chessa. Both are interwoven. I can relate to both characters. I know people that are just like Leif and Chessa. They "get" life, don't take themselves seriously and are fun to hang out with.

Any additional comments?

A perfect example of how God is always working behind the scenes on our behalf.

After I listened to the audio format I purchased the paperback for my library. A must have!!!

Seth Jacobs has it all - a successful business, a mansion in greater Boston, a beautiful wife and three loving children. Yet, in a series of events beyond his control Seth loses everything, including his health. Struggling to find some understanding amidst his pain, Seth's faith is challenged further by his wife Maria, who betrays him, and even his friends, who suggest that perhaps God has his reasons for inflicting so much suffering upon him.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the characters came alive and I wanted to see (hear) what happened next.

What did you like best about this story?

A bible story that we often take for granted or think doesn't fit today that is set in current times became relevant to me that I instantly related to. I could feel the pain, dispair and then joy. I felt like I had gone through the journey with Seth.

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

No

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

YES!!
