In his second book in the Perfecting the Saints series, Jonathan Hollis expounds powerful biblical revelation and commentary from the book of James, designed to edify and build the believer's faith and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and thereby supplement and strengthen their walk with the savior.

I couldn't listen to this book. Something that should have been encouraging and uplifting was not worth listening to. The narrator can't read and has difficulty pronouncing words. His start and stop - stunted method of reading is sad. I won't get another book with him narrating.

In the compelling conclusion to the New York Times best-seller Her Mother’s Hope, Christy Award-winning author Francine Rivers explores the sorrow that can tear families apart and the grace that can heal the deepest wounds. Just as Carolyn had formed a stronger bond with her Oma Marta than with her mother, so Carolyn’s daughter is drawn to her grandma more than to a mom who’s caught up in the 1960s counterculture....

This is the story of women; women in one maternal line and how they lived, survived, had faith, worked hard and raised their daughters/families. From one generation to the next, this story continues down through the daughters. Through WWI, WWII, Vietnam and other strife such as the great depression.
The Author is so talented, she keeps the reader engaged and feeling part of the story, experiencing emotions of the characters.
It's a sad tale with so much hardship, so many things to overcome...it's a story of woman passing their faith in the Lord Jesus from one generation to the next and of passing their love.
Excellent! Well worth the time and listen! It' is a faith-inspiring novel(s) that is sure to stir desires of your own life!

We have listened to all the of the series but this story isn't as well written as the others. Still worth listening to just a bit disappointing. Maybe the author has too many projects under her various pen names.

Evan Evans is a young police constable who has traded in the violence of city life for idyllic Llanfair, a Welsh village tucked far away from trouble. Nestled among the Snowdonia mountain range, Llanfair looks to Constable Evans like a town forgotten by time, but he quickly learns that even the bucolic countryside has its share of eccentric - and deadly - characters.

Long before Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly made most listeners’ acquaintance in Patrick Taylor's best-selling novel An Irish Country Doctor, he appeared in a series of humorous columns originally published in Stitches: The Journal of Medical Humour. These warm and wryly amusing vignettes provide an early glimpse at the redoubtable Dr. O’Reilly as he tends to the colourful and eccentric residents of Ballybucklebo, a cozy Ulster village nestled in the bygone years of the early '60s.

Snow is a rarity in Maura Donovan's small village in County Cork, Ireland, so she wasn't sure what to expect when a major snowstorm rolled in around Sullivan's pub. But now she's stranded in a bar full of patrons - and a suspected killer in a long-ago murder. Maura's been in Ireland less than a year and hasn't heard about the decades-old unsolved crime that took place nearby, let alone the infamous suspect, Diane Caldwell.

Phillip Keller's unique perspective on the beloved psalm is a genuine classic about how a real-life shepherd views the love Jesus the Shepherd has for his flock. His inspirational insights come from his firsthand experiences in developing and managing sheep ranches.

I love teachings on the 23 Psalm, but this is the best I have heard yet. I would highly recommend this to any one wanting to understand the 23 Psalm more. This Psalm isn't really intended for funerals, it is a way of understanding life with the Lord as our shepherd.
