I finished this audio book a couple of days ago, and I'm still thinking about it. This book was a simple one,really, a story that I would have written totally differently . . . but it wasn't mine to write . . . when Nathan found the tiny baby abandoned in the woods, and wanted to adopt him, my heart ached for the grandmother to allow the boy to be adopted by Nathan and his wife. I was secretly angered at every incident when Nat's grandma refused to tell him the truth, when she failed to "hear" him, to really share her life with him. When she told him that every kid has a man that finds them in the woods . . . Even at my age, a grandmother myself, I still ache as a child aches . . . going back to my own early years, a time when I, too, had no control over decisions that were made . . . decisions that, for good or bad, impact me to this day . . . To get the full benefit of this story, one must listen with their heart. You must sit back and take the story as it comes, as it is written and read . . . and then, it's full beauty comes full circle. Nathan said from day one that he wanted the boy he found in the woods. He meant it. Let that sink in and LISTEN. If only every child had a Nathan . . .

What did you love best about When I Found You?
I would never expect to like a story about a boy who wants to become a boxer, but I couldn't put this book down. The character development is excellent.
What was one of the most memorable moments of When I Found You?
I loved the relationship between the bitter young man and the man who found him in the woods as an abandoned baby. This story is about playing it forwards when someone does something kind for you.
What about Jeff Cummings’s performance did you like?
He was able to change his voice with the change of characters so that you knew exactly who was talking.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
