This book is a treasure . It is a stirring account of several people's lives, and how their lives were intertwined with a Vietnam veteran's life. I very rarely cry or laugh out loud from a book's presentation. This, however, stirred me to both. What a wonderful story! Yes! Please enjoy!

Young history professor Jack Turner takes a retreat at a lakeside cabin just outside of Culpepper, Georgia, to work on his doctoral dissertation. The cabin is owned by an ambitious state senator, an inheritance from his father. Inside, everything is exactly the way it was when the old man died 10 years ago. While taking a break from his research, Jack snoops through the father's books and finds an old photo album filled with black-and-white pictures of orphaned children.

Dan Walsh never disappoints! He is a master at weaving together suspense. The characters are believable; true to the plot. The reader is drawn in immediately and then hooked. I had a hard time putting this book down to get other things done....I believe any reader will enjoy this author and his writings. He writes in a manner that is free of blood, gore and sex ...a talent I greatly admire and appreciate . The audible version is wonderful. The narrator does an excellent and talented reading...great job Mr. Heyborne !

Billionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants - except a happy ending. Or at least that's what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island. Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian. When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard.

I've yet to read a book by Colleen Coble that I didn't enjoy. This one didn't disappoint. It was hard to put it down. The only thing that was a distraction, was the break between chapters. They were excessively long, leaving one wondering if the story had come to an end for some reason. If there was a way to shorten up that pause, it would be a great Improvement to the audio version. Other than that, the narrator did an excellent job, and the story was great!

This story was so well written. Each character was well developed and I felt like I was really in tune with each person. Then a twist would happen! A clear word picture was consistantly in place, and I would feel as though I was there. Great story development. The narrator was superior! She would have me holding my breath in some scenes. She captured moments superbly! Well done!

Colleen Coble is one of my favorite authors. Her books never disappoint, are unpredictable, and I never want to stop reading until the last page is turned. I think her writing is brilliant! Consequently, her books are brilliant!
