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.

The weight of the emotional pain felt from start to finish.

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

No I needed time to process the emotion.

Any additional comments?

This book is not for the light of heart, however, its for a heart that needs understnding and insight into someone who knows pain and healing love of God.

Today we see our life after 9/11 and forget the history of the United States (US). In All the Way Home the view of a child is the most powerful story to me. My parents and grandparents shared how they felt during WW II. What they failed to share was the side of US that was well written and shared with me during the reading of this book. My husband has taught me we still fight the small minds of today in our daily lives. This book allowed me time to see back just a few years to what others endured. I am delighted to have shared the moments in time that open ones mind to the world of action and not hide our past or suger coat how we as a nation seperated and unjustly treated our fellow Americans.

Jenny Blake has a theory about life: big decisions often don't amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform everything. Her theory proves true the summer she's 14, when she makes the decision to pick up a penny embedded in asphalt and consequently ends up stopping a robbery, getting a job, and meeting someone who changes her life forever: Miss Shaw.

The Penny brought joy and sadness. As the story provided insight to the world as we each see it. The excellent wording of each chapter provided many hours of delightful listening and self evaluation. I always enjoy how the Lord brings a book into my path at just the right time. The Penny is a book for all ages and a learning experance for us all.

Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

I work many hours under very stress filled conditions. This book allowed me the time to think about life in a new and respectful manner. Each day I would go to and from work thinking about Mr. Hunter and the current world events. A well-written book in one the reader is able to identify and enjoy. The plot continues in Red and I have been enjoying this type of trilogy. Well written and well read. Thanks for a great story.
