Riveting

This book made me cry. Read in one sitting. Loved that street named rivers etc. were familiar as I live in the triangle area.
Shari Peele is an excellent narrator and I will look for other books read by her.

Loved it!

I loved everything about this book. I'm a romantic type and could see the romance building with them with their bickering back and forth based on their individual heart. Becoming friends was great and then moving to something more was so exciting. I will reread certain parts of this book. Over and over. Will look to read more from this author.

WOW

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Loved this book! Gwen is 40 and he is 26 but such an old soul. It was instant attraction between them.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ransom! Handsome, sexy, mature, totally alpha male at such a young age.

Which character – as performed by Myra Lucretia Taylor – was your favorite?

I liked Chante. She was so amusing and a really good friend to the naive Gwen.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked the fact that Ransom would not consummate their relationship until after her divorce as Gwen requested, although she wanted to change her mind. He showed strength and honor to her by sticking to her request, even when she weakened.

Any additional comments?

Listen to this twice. And I never do that.

AWESOME AND INSPIRATIONAL

What did you love best about When Joy Came to Stay?

It showed how one wrong decision can spiral into life changing situations that go on and on but God's hand was there all the time. They just had to believe.

What did you like best about this story?

When the child prayed for her real father, unbeknownst to her. A believing child! Who would have thought...

What about Barbara Caruso’s performance did you like?

She was good. I liked her

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Listen to God

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this book. Made me question my decisions. Stay in prayer and read the bible so you can be aware when situations arise.

Loved it!

What did you like best about this story?

The faith aspect. The male character sounded a lot like Joel Olsteen and was just as humble too.

What does Anne Johnston Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Helps you think about how you live your life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

23rd Psalm
