I barley made it through this book!

The narrator's voice was borderline monotone, I kept loosing focus. I regret not purchasing the book to read. They should check the narrator's work before publishing the audible! Sigh

Ms Michelle?!

I recommend this book for anyone who is developing their relationship with Christ. The narrator was impeccable...took some getting use to the first 15 minutes or so and then infused with familiarity and comfort(great touch)! The plot is upbeat and heartfelt. I cried tears of joy, empathy, and sympathy. The culminating resolution, a must get to! Thank you Michelle for letting the Lord use you.

Loved it,

I really enjoyed this book. It was good and easy to read. It had awesome Christian values and I loved how it turned someone who didn't find them self to be nurturing into a good alternate mother.
