Insight into something I just can't really comprehend. Thanks to Megan Phelps-Roper for her open, emotional, and probably difficult, memoir.
Having been raised mainstream Christian, I can not wrap my head around the beliefs- so Old Testament and fire and brimstone retribution-of some of these self proclaimed to be righteous, churches. Such hate and vitriol. No mention of Jesus and love one another, judge not, etc.
I can understand how hard it would have been for Megan and her sister to leave all they ever knew, their family and all the brainwashing of their very sheltered and controlled upbringing. Thank God they were strong enough and sincere enough to move forward and change their lives; to work to make the world a better place and promote understanding and acceptance of everyone.
How sad that some people will cut loved ones out of their life if they think they don't believe what they are told to believe and obey blindly.

Set in the beautiful, remote marshland of North Carolina. At once sad and uplifting. The power of love and the strength of the human spirit. A love story, murder mystery and Botany lesson. You may need Kleenex at the end.
This was a book club read that had me fully engaged from the start. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author was great, I have heard her before. She can do many different voices so you really think you are hearing each different character.
I would highly recommend

I listened to this collection as my Halloween "read". I'm not a huge King fan, but some of his books are classics....this collection is one of them

Listen to this every year

Being a fan of the Movie A CHRISTMAS STORY, I had to purchase this Audible Book a few years back. Now I listen to it every year (& watch the movie). This year I listened to it with my husband while we were driving. The narrator is excellent and the background sound effects really add to the story.

John Grisham's stories don't disappoint. Engaging story. Would make a great TV Series. An innocence project type group, lawyers with a conscience, convicted criminals who are innocent, a conspiracy, drug cartels, those who do the right thing and those who definitely do the wrong thing, forgiveness and redemption.
The narrator is excellent and can change his voice and accent to suit the character speaking. I'd recommend this book.

Sorry, I did not like this book and returned it. Purchased because it was a 2019 Canada Reads finalist. I tried to listen, but it was just too heart wrenching. Surviving her mother's abuse, mental illness and a Chinese culture that seems, to me, to be a total lack of care, love and nurture for the children, was something I just did not want to hear about. Not because I did not care, but because, as I said, it was too heartwrenching. Another case of our society failing to protect it's most vulnerable.

Kate McKinnon, brilliant as always

Kate McKinnon does not disappoint. Brilliant as always, risque, irreverant. A hilarious romp on the wild side! Viewer/listener discretion advised...HA! Loved hearing the celebrity voice characters.

I really enjoy the stories in the Jackman & Ellis series. You feel such a sense of place from the author's narrative and the characters are so well developed you feel you know them. The storyline draws you in and you want to hear more. Narrator is very enjoyable as well.

Sorry, just couldn't finish. Listened for awhile but it just did not catch my interest. Really didn't care for the narration, either.
