Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was 13. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have...until he wasn't beautiful anymore.
Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl's love for a broken boy and a wounded warrior's love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

Great (low heat) romance :)
I really like how it wasn't a typical love story. It wasn't full of sex scenes but a lot of depth. It really made me think and I enjoyed the story line along with how it was written and read. The whole thing was absolutely enjoyable.
I loved the main characters, Ambrose and Fern. They were just good people that deserved one another. But I think the best character was Bailey. His zest for life even through his disability was inspiring and caused intropsect. Plus, he had a great sense of humor.
I was skeptical at first because I'm usually not fond of male characters narrating a romance audiobook and trying to emulate the female characters in them. But Rob Shapiro did such a great job that I was so lost in the story. He was amazing.
Yes! I think I need to listen to it again, as well. It really made me think about my own views on beauty and how the majority of people view other people as well as themselves. I think this really made me grow as a person. I'm still reeling with all the lessons, which is why I think I will need to re-listen again.
Get it! It is not a typical romance. It's so much more than that. The characters had a lot of depth and it has a story line that is atypical of the average romance books out there. There aren't any heated physical scenes--just a lote of G rated stuff--but you still feel their attraction for one another none-the-less.
