Not sure why I'm giving it 2 stars

This book is not good. No way, shape or form. I thought the description sounded great. The story line and idea had true potential.The reviews given were wonderful. I thought I was walking on pretty good ground. Ugh. It started off ok. And when I say that, i mean OK in the purest form. The characters, the narrator ( which cuts me deeply because I am a huge fan of Kirsten Potter as D. D. Warren) geez, the story.. was drawn out, boring, unbelievable and an all around frustrating..'OH COME ON!'... coming out more than once. I actually thought I had bought the abridged version because there was so much that didn't come together. No matter what review you read, don't fall for it, don't buy it, like I did, because of the narrator ( I'm still trying to pull the knife out of my chest on that one..oh Kirsten.. what did you do!) and definately don't buy it because you think the description sounds interesting. It's not. I'm trying to save you here. Money as well as & 7 hrs and 2 minutes ( those 2 minutes..ugh).

Wow! Great allegory with a captivating story.

My wife talked me into listening to this book. She is a huge Terri Blackstock fan and I'll admit I listened to it for her but I was very impressed. Basically, this is an allegorical story of twin girls who are separated from their home and forced to live in squalor until they choose to return to their adoptive parent that loves them very much and has virtually unlimited resources to care for them. It was a beautiful way to illustrate how we live in the squalor of this world and choose to believe its lies even though Christ offers us a far better alternative. I thought the plot was believable with few exceptions though I did think it may have stretched a bit at the climax. I also found the main characters to be believable and I was able to identify with them. This is by far my favorite Terri Blackstock book.
