Publisher's Summary

In the rural Deep South, there are stories about people who, upon the approach of their death, have been greeted by dead loved ones who return as ghosts to lead them into the next world.

This is one of those stories.

Touching and sad

This is a touching story of true love and the incredible pain and emptiness of loss. I could almost feel their pain. By the end of this story I felt like I had lost someone myself. It was well written and the narrator did a fine job but this is definitely not one I wouldn't care to listen to again.

Another good short story!

This is another great short story from Mr. Jones. Although a great story, it’s quite sad....yet, sweet and happy, maybe tragically happy? As always, Jones’ storytelling makes you feel as if you are there with his characters, you know them as well as he does.
The narration was just okay; it could’ve been better but, it doesn’t detract from the story.

Vivid Short Story

When a young boy and his mother nurse a woman on her deathbed, the boy forms an unlikely friendship with the woman's husband. It's there that he has his first glimpse of death and what comes after.

This is a rustic story set in the late 40s about loss and the afterlife. I felt for Boone, a man who owned so much yet had so little. For a short story, it's really vivid and detailed and I felt like I knew the characters well. The ending will make you stop and think. The narrator's voice was perfect for the tone of the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Boone

John Isaac Jones has done it again. His descriptions are so vivid, I feel like I'm watching the story happen. I felt so connected to the characters even though it is a short story.

Michael T Downey was the perfect choice as the narrator. His southern drawl really added to the performance.

Anther short good book, from JIJ

this story is set in the 40s. when life was simple. its about a little boy growing up on a farm, who's mother is a caretaker.
This is not a horror book, but about the afterlife, and sweet little boy and older man that took him under his wing.
though it may not be a horror book, its a sweet book, and a easy listen.

Micheal Downey did seem to breath deeply at the start of a sentence in some parts. but not enough to take away from the story.

Another Fantastic Short Story by John Isaac Jones!

Once again Mr. Jones has provided his listener with a short story with a deep message. For those who just looked at the artwork and quickly glanced at the published notes and expected a horror story will be sadly disappointed. Like most of Mr. Jones writing this story involves morals, rules, hope, and love(both earthly and in the afterlife). Values that are in step decline in our current society. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Mr. Downey does a splendid job with the narration in this short audiobook. He gives each character a strong distinct voice and is really a pleasant narrator. I look forward to a future performance from him.

An Interesting Story On Life and the After

Boone was an interesting listen. It was about life and death. It was one to make you think. It definitely had the sound of being in the deep south. Life was slow and when the time came it was fast. A very interesting listen indeed.

This was a thought-provoking book written by John Isaac Jones and narrated by Michael T. Downey whose voice was perfect for the story. I think he nailed the characterization of Boone.

Not a horror story, as such...

If you get this book hoping for a terrifying horror story, you may be disappointed. There is some good-old-boy optimism about the afterlife, but a horrific miscalculation about eternity is not what the typical horror fan is hungry for.

This was a short enjoyable character study of elderly love and loss. The narrator did a great job telling the story. This is the kind of story that just begs to be told more than being read.

I loved it!

All of John's visually detailed stories have a message for the listener. Whether it's good morals, family bonds, or love that exceeds the test of time. The way this very talented author is able to tell a complete story with enough details to make you feel as if you are there in such a short amount of time is amazing to me. This story about a husband's love for his wife was heartbreakingly beautiful. Even death couldn't break their strong bond with one another. I requested this book in exchange for my honest review. I highly recommend this book to anyone limited on time that loves a good story.
