Publisher's Summary

Mysteriously banished to live with demanding Aunt Augusta on Florida's remote, untamed Merritt island of 1904, young Emma-Lee Palmer discovers a dark family secret. Befriended by a kindly sea captain, Emma-Lee and Aunt Augusta discover courage, renewed hope, and the importance of family in this transcendent story of healing and redemption through God's unconditional love.
Inspired by a true story, The Distant Shore is a powerful blend of action, adventure, romance, and the quest within each of us to find our heart's home. Love, after all, is never too lost or too late.

Wonderful Characters and Story

Where does The Distant Shore rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 10

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Distant Shore?

When a little girl got bitten by a snake and everyone came to the rescue! A great community and family bonding.

Have you listened to any of Lee Ann Howlett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first narration by Lee Ann Howlett I've listen to and her voice was perfect

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

It was bittersweet when the main character returned to Miami to visit her family and some truths were uncovered that would eventually prove unhappy.

Any additional comments?

This story was wonderfully written. The characters were well developed and the narration brought out their special difference and emotions. The book was full of twists and turns that included bad weather, sinister plots, devious characters, romance, love, and devotion to God. A must read! Delightful!

Enjoyable and inspirational story

I really liked this book. It really pulls at your heartstrings, seeing how a family handles its joys and sorrows with their faith in God. It was really rather inspirational to see a little girl's faith acted out, penetrating every aspect of her life, from how she shows love to those around her, to those she forgives. The characters were really well-developed and are easy to form an emotional connection to. This book had action, romance, tragedy, and other difficult situations, but all were written in a "clean" manner - not too much graphic detail. It is easily something that could be shared with the whole family, or that you can read or listen to without worry about young children seeing or hearing too much. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book, and I enjoyed the narration. The narrator has a pleasant voice and her reading felt effortless and comfortable. This is the first book I have read by Debora Coty, but I would gladly try some more of her books, and I highly recommend this one.
