Publisher's Summary

Robert Whitlow’s gripping legal thrillers have won him a Christy Award and favorable comparisons to John Grisham. Higher Hope, the second novel in his Tides of Truth series, follows Savannah law clerk Tami Taylor as she assists on a case against a preacher who has been defaming a businessman with so-called prophecies from God. Though her firm wants to prove these prophecies are nothing more than slander, Tami can’t help but wonder if the preacher is, in fact, telling the truth.

Great Story ... stretch your faith

Would you consider the audio edition of Higher Hope to be better than the print version?

Hey, if you are a believer, this is a great story to raise your faith and belief that God is still at work and speaks to his people

Good read. Good reader. Inspiring.

Great story about a young lady who is trying to do the right thing and does not judge people too soon. I loved it and want my daughter to read it.

very misleading

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

a true review from the beginning - this is not a legal thriller this is all about the gospel and a strict way to live like as if you were a NUN! seriously disappointed in the misleading review which led me to purchase this in the first place - the publisher is not truthful with the story's content

Any additional comments?

this was a theft of my money plain and simple by the publisher - they know what type of book this is but did not inform readers

A clash between Gospel truths and legal career.

A Christian book worth reading.... The story faces the extremes of a fundamentalist law student's background and the requirements of representing a questionable client. Multiple weaving story lines keep you going to the end.

Not as strong as Deeper Water

Would you try another book from Robert Whitlow and/or Suzy Jackson?

Yes. I enjoyed the promise of both the writer and the narrator, but I found this book was much preachier than its predecessor. I could not understand why Tami was so drawn to this woman minister... in fact, I found the minister VERY presumptuous... but the character developemtn of Tami, Zach, Vince and the other was believable and well-drawn. A high-stakes courtroom drama this is not... but a decent follow-up to Deeper Water.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The relationship betwen Tami and her friends, the love of Tami's family were both most interesting. The legal aspects were anti-climactic at best.

Any additional comments?

I think that this whole series is more a character-drive one than a legal one. The characters happen to be lawyers and law students, but they are much more rounded. This both adds to and detracts from the appeal of the story.

Very slow

Would you try another book from Robert Whitlow and/or Suzy Jackson?

The narrator wasn't bad, but the, story read like a school-aged child wrote it.

What was most disappointing about Robert Whitlow’s story?

I was anticipating a court drama that circled around religious issues. The story started off ok, but then dragged through boring descriptions of this conservative family.

How could the performance have been better?

After a while her voice became annoying. Maybe it has to do with the flat read.
