She and her son were finally able to move out of her mother's home to Manhattan, where no one knew about her tragic past.

For some reason I just can't get into this book. The narrator just does not do it for me. It just drags on and I find myself not even listening. May work for someone else but not for me.

No one could believe the handsome young doctor might be a serial killer. Wherever he was hired - in Ohio, Illinois, New York, South Dakota - Michael Swango at first seemed the model physician. Then his patients began dying under suspicious circumstances.

I am one of those listeners that just has to know how it ended no matter what. The story drug out a bit in certain places but overall it was another easy listen and time filler. Not my favorite of Karen Kingsbury but it was good. Still had a hard time with this narrator but managed to get through.

This had an interesting story but I just thought it was a little far fetched. Overall it ended up being a great story of love and triumph. The narrator is definitely not my favorite but I like Karen's book so I stuck with it! A nice easy listen that kept my interest.
