There is not much that’s new here except that the horror is told from a different vantage point. It’s still bad and not getting any better. The cure though is given in a way that only the most level headed citizen can wish.

Did I miss something?

This story is not finished. Did I miss a few chapters? This is not quite the story I had expected at all. I am left hanging....

Highly recommended reading....

I highly recommend everyone, especially those who are opposed to having refugees enter our country, listen to this audiobook. If more people, who do not understand what the displaced people from war-torn countries are fleeing, this world could be a lot more peaceful place to live. The work up is a little slow with Malala telling her personal story first, but then the speakers change and the stories of other girls are told which then brings to light the terror and horror the refugees go through as they too must flee their homes and property or face certain death. If we could just all agree to offer a safe haven for these dear people at least while the wars and political upheaval is dealt with or rectified in their country. I believe that the only way to cure the mass poverty in third-world countries IS to educate the girls. From them will come the future of the entire village and from the village will come the prosperity of the country.

Riveting! I loved the book!

I could not put the book down until it was finished! Very well done! The story must be true. It bears all the marks of a real life story. Love, joy, heartache, sorrow.... The story of a young girl, who falls in love with the boy of her dreams, her unexpected pregnancy, her baby torn from her life and her struggle to cope with the hollowness in her heart and life. The rest.....you’ll have to read the book! The writing, the narration and the facts that are real, as they happened in Quebec during the be-damned tyranny of Dueplessie. (spelling?).
I recommend his book highly. It will have an effect on your life

Have patience, and you’ll be rewarded.....

I story was not as I had expected. It got a little dull for a while and I almost gave up but I’m glad I didn’t! About halfway, the story picks up quickly and surprisingly. The result is a very very good story, with that...’Is it a true story?’.....kind of feel, just the way I like it. The tidbits are all there, as they are in any riveting movie, but you have to listen for them. As always, nothing is ever mentioned for no reason! The reader is excellent, by the way. Very well read, with a clear voice full of expression. AAA+

Absolutely Wonderful!

Mary’s story of her personal experience gives me hope and faith in the treasure the LORD has waiting for us in Heaven. I lost my husband a month and a half ago (today, June 3rd is his birthday) and I have been hoping that he is at peace and happy. Mary leaves me with no doubts that my faith is true and my husband and I will be together again in His Heaven with the rest of our loved ones. Thank you so much for your book, and may God continue to bless you.

Wonderful Introduction To Soap Making

Excellent introduction to the Art of homemade soap making for all those interested in the history and how’s and why’s of this wonderful hobby. We know the Israelites were given the order to use the fat which rendered and mixed with the wood ashes during the sacrificial burning of the offering to Jehovah God. And amazingly, even today, we can still use the millenniums-old, basic method. Thankfully, though, today we are able to blend from countless choices of oils to produce soap for practically all delicate skin types and needs, rather than just a harsh soap used to just scrub our clothes clean!
This is a well written and wonderfully narrated book. She ends the last two chapters with very good recipes which anyone can make and will give you faith in your own skill and success!

It’s everything I hoped it would be. An insiders view on the goings-on in the Trump mind in the White House. Omarosa speaks from the heart about a man she called a friend. She holds no hatred in her heart for those who’ve wronged her, but only speaks the truth. The Bible says “.. the truth will set you free.” It takes time for each person connected to Trump, but one by one each person will fall away. Trump has Dementia, though the word was not used in the book, when a family member has it you know what it looks like. Our Canadian System has checks and balances which prevent this type of thing affecting judgement in our Leaders in government. Our entire country continues to function smoothly, and seamlessly even when the leading party is defeated overnight. I always thought you Americans had the best system of government, but now we see its flaws, when the Wonderful and Respected Obama White House turns its keys over to an idiot like DJT.....be afraid good people....be very afraid!

Beautiful

Mary's description is perfectly in line to my sister's experience. It is totally believable because I have heard it told and described similarly. Talking with Jesus, riding with her, answering her questions and therefore Mary need not feel embarrased to explain that she too was talking with Jesus. He is capable of talking with more than one person from this earthly life. Discribed as total love and acceptance.... the bible speaks of people who walked with God, that means walk and talk. Good Book, I'd wish everyone would read it. They may well find the strength to go on.

Awesome!

A must read for all girls and boys regardless of who they feel they are inside. Acceptance and understanding is key in shaping all children for the life they’ll lead. Everyone in gifted with something special to contribute to our world and we must ensure that each and every single one of us is allowed to live our life, reaching our full potential, the way GOD has intended.
