Kendall James has just been terminated from her teaching position because the conservative board frowns upon unwed mothers, despite her claims that she IS married. That would be because her husband, Adam, has hardly been around since they got married! Broke and homeless, Kendall decides to track down her worthless husband at the last known address that she had...when he sent her money several months ago. She is taken aback when she arrives in town, and subsequently her husband's childhood home, ...more

Sweet Sacrifices
: Gloria Davidson Marlow


This book takes the listener on a journey with Kendell, a young woman of questionable reputation. She travels to find her husband to make him take responsibility for their newborn son. Things are not what they seem. We find a murder, mysterious strangers, and romance all wrapped up in a coming of age drama. This book kept me guessing until the end.


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Bob Johnson voiced the book realistically.

Shades of Tara!

There are more star-crossed lovers than Scarlett could shake a stick at in this well-narrated (by Bob Johnson) tale of twentieth century, depression-ruled, pre-war (WWII!) plantation living. A Trollope-style tangle of old families pits mother-love against social mores as Kendall, homeless, jobless, and barely one month post partum, strives to untangle her own marriage and make sense of her background. Frankly, I listened enthralled as this soap opera weaved its tangled web. Two t

I felt for the main character, Kendall, as she had crappy parents, only to grow up and find herself with a crappy husband and a baby. It's a situation many can relate to.

Very interesting story! What a tangled web we weave....
Full of mystery and suspense and intrigue, it's sure to give you some goose bumps!
Great story, and great narration by Bob Johnson :)

I received this book from the author and the Authors and Reviewers group in exchange for a honest review.

I liked this book. It was part romance/part murder mystery. I was kept guessing throughout the book.

The Hero: I felt a little bad for him. His twin was always his mother's favorite so he was always trying to get her approval and attention. He was upstanding, moral, loyal, and trustworthy.

The Heroine: In spite of her childhood upbringing, she turned into a well-balanced person. Her whole life

Recommends it for: Anyone who loves a good, emotional romance
I won an e-copy of Sweet Sacrifices from commenting on a blog - and boy, do I feel lucky that I did! I was unfamiliar with this author's work and as it's not in my favourite time period, I may not have picked it up otherwise. Now that I've read Ms. Davidson Marlow's work however, I am a fan for life.

The plot to this book is well thought out, plausible and fraught with such strong emotional content, in a lesser writer's hands, it could very well have been disastrous. But the characters of Kendall

Romantic suspense author Gloria Davidson Marlow's heart is firmly planted in northeast Florida, where she grew up in a family of commercial fishermen. She works as a legal assistant for a local law firm, but remains a homemaker at heart who loves cooking, canning, and spending time with her husband and their grandchildren.
