Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/20/2014

    " If it were possible to give more stars, I would. A beautifully written story of classic themes of loss, redemption, and hope. It mirrored my life in so many ways. If you've ever lost your faith and wondered if you'd ever find it again, read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 2/15/2014

    " Book that promotes faith. I'm wondering if everything wasn't solved too neatly just because the people characters were Christians? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aurora Cray | 2/13/2014

    " Another great christian novel with a wonderful message! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 2/10/2014

    " Good Christian fiction; This is my first Linda Nichols novel and I will be reading more! Great beginning.....great ending. Tragic story....and as I read it, I wondered how I would handle a tragedy such as this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 2/8/2014

    " I think this is a very slow book. It seems like there are so many characters, with so many details, that I got distracted trying to keep everyone straight, and therefore lost sight of the story. It was a good story in the end. But the journey to get to the end was painful to endure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellie Syverud | 2/5/2014

    " Average. a little on the religious side. fairly standard plot, the expected ending - married couple break up over accidental death of their child, eventually deal with their grief & reunite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 1/26/2014

    " This was the first book that I've known my mom to read cover to cover... she really enjoyed it! After she finished, I read it, and really appreciated how Linda Nichols wove the characters into the story - and the messege of giving your sorrow to God. The book didn't exactly completely apply to me, as I am not a mother, let alone have lost a child. However, it was a tremendously amazing story, with nothing innappropriate, and I wouldn't be surprised to find myself reading it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phyllis Jones | 1/12/2014

    " christian fiction, very southern christian fiction but we'll see how it reads, better written than some LDS fiction depending on your believe of heaven and life after death, this discusses thoses in a good way. It's not in your face religion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 1/9/2014

    " Somewhat of a melancholic feel, but a good message in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 12/15/2013

    " Very well written, insightful. Full of faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 12/3/2013

    " All about mistakes and the power of forgiveness both of one's self and others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 11/15/2013

    " Christain fiction often seems contrived - this isn't. This is a good story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/10/2013

    " 50% Good, 50% the most annoying book I've read (including university textbooks). It makes me want to rewrite it (and I am published already...). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elsie | 10/6/2013

    " Great look at how God uses all the things in our lives to grow us into who we are meant to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanne | 8/30/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 4/7/2013

    " A friend loaned me this book. So far, it's pretty good. A little slow getting started, but it's getting better as I go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan Marie Newby | 1/20/2013

    " Gripping story of sorrow underlaid with hope. Moves just a little bit too slowly but that is all right because the characters are so true to life that the reader doesn't mind spending the extra time with them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 1/7/2013

    " While the story moved to an inevitable ending, I enjoyed the journey. It explored some good life issues like grief, anger of God, the will of God. I liked the characters and the way that healing occurred in three broken lives. It is not great writing, but it's a very enjoyable story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 12/1/2012

    " What a GREAT book! Definitely recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Breslin | 9/24/2012

    " Loved it! I think Linda is a poet at heart, her writing is so lyrical. She's not afraid to tackle difficult situations in order to show how no tragedy is greater than God's healing love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Smdc | 8/13/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Bates | 1/4/2012

    " This book was so good for my heart. It really taught me about God's perfect Will and how He can bring you through any season of life if you allow Him to. Such a beautiful story. 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 12/29/2011

    " This is the ultimate in escapist reading, and that is exactly what I was going for. There is a whole beautiful world that always ends with great happiness. I love it, sometimes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 11/21/2011

    " Well 3.5. It was slow going to the predictable end but it was well written and was not so overly spiritial that it didn't seem real. I was little surprised that these people rarely cam inot contatct with non Christians but maybe it is that way in the south. I don't know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alesia | 4/13/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/7/2010

    " The plot was a little too sad (with sadness concerning little girls) for this new mom but other than that, I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 8/19/2010

    " A friend loaned me this book. It was a Christian lit book about a husband and wife who loose a child and then loose their faith. It is well written and stylistically beautiful. It is a little slow moving and introspective, which certainly isn't a bad thing if you are in the mood for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 6/28/2010

    " All I can say is I loved it. It's another light Christian Women's Lit. that I stumble upon from time to time. Wholesome, heartfelt and easy to get lost in. "

    " I started this book several times this year and always seemed to get stuck in the first few chapters....but this time, I made it through to the meat of the story and I was hooked. Sweet, clean, inspirational....sometimes a tear or two escaped my heart while I read this book. Loved it! "
