What made the experience of listening to A Gift of Grace the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed listening to the characters. You became so involved with each character and how they were feeling while listening to the audio version it made you feel as if you were there. I worked in my office I found myself being helped by the advice being given in the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Gift of Grace?

When Rebecca realizes it's in giving up what was most precious to her in order to hear God clearly she was trying to hold onto what she wanted and after obeying God she was receiving the blessings and peace in her life. The book was exciting and had me captivated and looking for the next book. I loved this book.

What about Devon O' Day’s performance did you like?

The reader had so much expression and did so well with discovering a voice for each of the characters that you could tell who was speaking while listening. I listen to a lot of audio books and this was one of the best.

Any additional comments?

A lesson in love and giving up of yourself and your needs for others and learning how to find your way back in your marriage when you have both been very hurt. Love and forgiveness is the key to restoring broken relationships.

Great Amish reading

What did you like about this audiobook?

I love the humbleness of the Amish. I know this is fiction, but I really desire to be more humble and rely on God more and more. I love the scripture that is constantly quoted.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

A whole lot. I want to read more and more about the Amish.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Yes, to a large degree. I got just a little tired of the relationships going back and forth, but it certainly did not keep me from going on with the book.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

I did not like the narration at all. Emphasis was almost nil. When someone would be in a tramatic situation, as when the girls godmother would speak, the narration just didn't meet the situation at all. I was "oh really"....I felt there should have been more dramatics in her voice/output. Was not happy at all with the narration of just this one book.

Do you have any additional comments?

Just a great series.
