 My Review:   
First of all let me just say that I love author Karen Kingsbury. Her style of writing is such amazing story telling that you are automatically drawn to the characters and what ever is going on in their life.  

As I searched for something to listened to on my way back down south,  this book along with the next one came into my sight. I automatically placed it in my cart. Author Karen Kingsbury is not only inspirational in her stories, but this is exactly the kind of book I wanted to listen to. So I was very pleased to have this opportunity to do so. 

The Firstborn series has secrets, emotional highs and lows, as well as inspirational love and family. While listening instead of reading this story while driving, may not have been such a good idea though, due to I caught myself daydreaming while driving. But that was okay, I made sure to not let it get to me once I realized that I was.

With that being said, the only thing that I could say, would be that the tone, or voice of the audio in some places might be better. It could have been the actual quality of the cd, but there were times that it was loud then other times that it was to soft to hear, so I would have to adjust the volume. 

And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:

Four Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I did not receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.
