Publisher's Summary

Although they had always dreamed of having a family, tall, horse-faced Frances and stubby, one-eyed Jack had reconciled themselves to a lifetime of abject loneliness. Then one day, out of nowhere, an infant is dropped into their midst. A fairy tale for adults!

Short and sweet!

This novella was a quick listen. The story line could have been longer but it was not necessary for this tale. Remarkable cast. Definitely worth a 5 star rating!

For Love of Daniel

Such a heartfelt and touching story.

Frances and Jack are friends and have each resigned themselves to being alone in life. Their lives are drastically changed when an infant is left with them. Will they come together as a family or are they fated to be alone...

John Isaac Jones is a master storyteller. His descriptions are so detailed and his characters are so vibrant. It’s like I’m right there in the story.

Tom Zainea’s narration was fantastic. His timing was impeccable and he really brought out the emotions.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Bound by a child.

This is a 79 page novella, just one minute short of 3 hours of audio. It kept me entertained on a long-haul flight, but for some reason I wasn't totally invested in it. It has a great premise: two social misfits come together and discover happiness when they find themselves sharing the care of a baby.
There are several hiccups; questions are going to be asked when you suddenly appear with a child, out of the blue. These were the parts that kept my interest, while the remainder of the narrative rolled along uneventfully.

Maybe it was the fact that this was short, maybe I just didn't have time to get into the lives of the characters. Perhaps I needed a bit more body to the story.
Quite a surprise ending, raised my rating to 4 stars.

I loved the narration by Tom Zainea, who has read several of John Isaac Jones's novellas.
