I will also get the print version and share with friends and family members.

Scarlet has perfectly expressed so many things I personally identify with (and many others do also I suspect). The small, the in-between and the big things...ALL the things. They are covered. Jesus. The one WORD. He has covered them all. As a long-time believer, I know this. As an all-the-time weak sinner, I forget this. (#struggling).

Thank you, Jesus, for Scarlet. For the talent, intellect, humor and relatability You have given her, for the wisdom beyond her young years, for her sweet, humble spirit, and her willingness to be used by You in this way to remind readers and listeners of Your strength, power and love in the midst of inevitable scary things. Thank You for all the Scriptures she shared in this work, beautifully applying Your words to ease fears with Your love and banish lies with Your Truth.

I personally have scary things in front of me right now and I feel more hopeful and encouraged and less anxious and worried. Scarlet has, in a way, cleared away clouds that blurred my ability to look to Jesus. Thank you, Scarlet, for this work.

To those who are thinking about reading or listening I say, the sooner the better. Drop whatever you are doing and consume this book now.

Do you believe in magic? Wecker’s ability to weave the threads of this tapestry through hundreds of years and Guidall’s beautiful narration casts a spell and brings the listener along for a magic carpet ride through the streets of turn of the century New York City with a cast of ordinary, hard-working characters whose lives are forever impacted by magical beings from opposite ends of the spectrum. One ancient, one brand new. One fire, one clay. Even their cultures of origin are forever at war. A masterful, mysterious tale.

Joss Ackland’s production of Lewis’ clever classic is believable and beautifully read. Though Screwtape admits his specific niche to be England, his admonishments to the hapless Wormwood are universal to all humanity thanks to the wit and wisdom of CS Lewis. This production hit home with me, a 21st century American female, thanks to Mr. Ackland’s keen inhabitation of the diabolically “affectionate” Uncle Screwtape. Many thanks for a wonderful listening experience!

Simon Vance’s production of this classic tale is perfectly wonderful. His rich voice is easy to listen to and his characterizations are as distinct as the individuals themselves from English nobles to downstairs servants and dwellers in houses of ill repute. I’m a fan!

"Trust is all you need." And some blindly follow, while others trust no one. Worlds apart literally describes groups of people thrust together by life-and-death circumstances and are forced to survive either by learning to trust and lean on each other or by defending their own lives by any means available. The suspense and action continues in Book 2 of this series. John Thornton mixes in humor and pathos in this very human story set in an automated and mechanical environment. Alexander Doddy's beautiful British voice compliments the story and is a joy to listen to!

Book 1 of 10 in the Colony Ship Eschaton series is brought to life on audible.com! John Thornton's good guy / gal duo Michael and Jamie are fun to get acquainted with and their encounters near and very far bring surprises, laughs, tears and suspense. Be prepared to binge-listen to the cool British voice of Alexander Doddy who narrates with heart, soul and who even does such a great (and perfectly American!) voice for Roxanne, a main character who is not quite human, that it made me want to do a happy dance!
