Publisher's Summary

Exasperated by her husband Nick's sudden new obsession with Jesus, Mattie Cominsky views an out-of-town business trip as a welcome opportunity to reflect on their marriage: and to decide if it's time to put an end to this painfully unrewarding relationship. Aboard the plane, Mattie is relieved to find herself seated next to a passenger who shares her scorn for religion. After she confides her husband's unexpected turn, their conversation soon leads to a fascinating exploration of spirituality, God, and the quest for meaningful connection.
Mattie's skepticism soon warms to the perceptive insights of this stranger, and she finds herself confronting the unspoken longings of her soul for true intimacy and lasting fulfillment. As his comments touch on personal issues he couldn't possibly know about, she begins to wonder if she's misjudged not only Nick but also the God he now claims to believe in.

Could have been a lovely listen . . .

. . . but unfortunately the narrator was so whiney that I nearly ejected the disc from my player. I loved the premise, but the author didn't need to tell us every time one of the characters 'sipped their juice' or 'ate a bite of scone' - I didn't need a play by play of the food and drink consumed. There were some inspirational moments but they were overshadowed on the whole by the sappiness.

The voice..

I agree with the other reviewer - the voice was so incredibly whiny I could barely stand it. Nails on the chalkboard. It's a good story but the voice ruined it. It would have been better had they replaced the female voice completely and add a male voice for the Jesus dialog. Pass on the audio version but do pick up the book. The DVD is also very good.
