I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the imaginative stories that "Father Christmas" sends to the children, the narrators; and yes, I will say that I disagree with the comment that there was "too much music" in between the chapters. I think it added just the right touch.

Well narrated. A classic story. Timeless. Highly recommend. I have seen the movie, but it's been awhile. Right away the author pulls you into the story, the era, the characters. You feel "The Heat of the Night"

Only in Canada you say

I always enjoy Joy Ellis's Jackman and Evans Series. Richard Armitage does a great job with the narration. You can imagine you are listening to different characters. This is Book 5. I have the first 4 on Audible and will now listen to Book 6. The characters, scenery, and ambiance of the area come alive and you get caught up in the story. Jackman and Evans would make a great TV Series. Has anyone thought of that?

Bought this Audible Book last month for Indigenous Peoples History Month (June). 5 stars all around. Four homeless people find a cigarette package with 4 cigarettes, 3 $20 bills, and a lottery ticket. They discover they have won 13 million $! But they need ID to claim the prize. Enter their new friend, a retired, cynical journalist who they met at the movies while trying to keep warm. Heartwarming and insightful. Who are these 4 and how did they become homeless, and how will this money change them? For better or worse.

Just had to jump on the bandwagon and hear the story to see what all the furor was about. Well written. Insight both professional and personal into the life of the current US President.

A different approach to the topic of slavery and race relations in the US. Top marks for creativity/story line and the narrator was excellent. What would it be like if you were African American in the modern world and you had the chance to go back in time to confront your white, slave owner, great great grandfather on his plantation.

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
