How does a man pick up the pieces when his world crashes around him? Misplaced priorities shattered his marriage. Problems almost crushed him. Love motivated him to mend the damage, once he found all the pieces. After only a few months of marriage, Lorraine left Dylan on a wintry night after he'd spent one too many nights out with the guys. Unable to cope with the loss, Dylan escapes the painful feelings by drinking them away. This decision costs him a year-and-a-half of his life after he stops in a little mountain town and ends up in the local jail. When he's released, he returns home in search of a job to get his life...and his wife back.
The Missing Piece is not only a love story about a man who loves a woman, but is also a love story about a merciful God who loves mankind, even when he falls. The novel is an emotionally-charged journey of hope and redemption with a touch of spunk, a hint of humor, and a few twists along the way.

Would you listen to The Missing Piece again? Why?
No. The story was good, Got a little to out there in terms of real romance. A bit too fantasized. I did not enjoy the narrator. Had trouble with his adding "a" after some sentences. sounded trite. The narrator's voice inflections were irritating.
Who was your favorite character and why?

I didn't continue listening. I don't like stories about preachers. When this one started talking about him meeting a preacher I had to stop listening. The narrator used "Um" and "a" in the narration that I'm sure were not in the print. It makes the author sound like she doesn't know how to use the English language.
