Narrator's Voice

Not able to get past chapter 3, narrator Jennifer Kidwell's voice ruined it for me. Will purchase the actual book and read the old fashion way.

AWESOME!

I truly enjoyed this book! The storyline had me talking aloud when some of the events occured. The narrator did her thing and made the book come to life.

GREAT!!!!!!

I really liked this book and would recommend it. It had a great storyline and I wish it was a movie or TV show.

I liked the clean reading and the great love shared between Tori and Jacob. The relationship between the cousins and Aunt Dottie. When the Judge said they weren't 1st cousins was wrong her father (step or real) made two brothers or sister and brother two children 1st cousins. She told the Judge K that her mother married DeAndra's uncle which made them 1st cousins.

The narrator was great and I wish the story gave more details about their lives. This was a great book! I also loved the Bible references.

Inspirational Listen

I enjoyed almost everything about this book. The beginning was a tad slow for me with all the description of pain, but it rolled out alright the rest of the way. I liked how the messages were incorporated into real life scenarios and did not come off as preachy. Great Listen. Good Message. Themes: Second chance romance, small town, single-mom, and of course the religious journey.
