Jonathan Garrett lost everything. He and his two best friends, Caleb and Aryl, operated one of the top brokerages in New York City when the unthinkable happened; the stock market crash of ´29. And now, with nothing but the clothes on their backs, these men must start over. But starting over has never been more difficult. The jobs become fewer and danger lurks around every corner. And then when a business rival threatens their existence, despair looms overhead as the men struggle to find a way out. Meanwhile, their wives, Ava, Arianna, and Claire, slowly adapt to life in a shabby apartment as they learn to deal with their poverty-stricken status. Each begins to cope as they find ways to live more modestly. Emotional and financial ruin nips at their heels pushing the couples to the end of their ropes. Until finally, with a lucky twist of fate, they escape city life and begin anew in their hometown of Rockport, Massachusetts. But just as they start to relax and settle into their new lives, tragedy strikes again.... This book is the first in The 1929 Series by author M.L. Gardner and promises to be a must read for historical fiction fans everywhere. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maxine Lennon.

Intelligently crafted, well executed, and thought provoking. Give this book a try, Christian or not! You´ll be glad you did. (Hogwash.com) ´´Turner fleshes out female characters as well as male ones (not something the Bible does much of) and the book is the richer for this.´´ (Big Al´s Books and Pals) Beral´s only goal is to serve loyally as Jonathan´s shield bearer and protect his prince through whatever battles may come. But Jonathan needs a friend as well, a man he can trust while navigating the precarious footing of his father´s court. Being that friend puts Beral´s life in danger and stretches his loyalty to the breaking point. For what Jonathan wants is to do Yahweh´s will, whether that be through defying his increasingly paranoid father, King Saul, or supporting the aspirations of young David, whom Jonathan believes is the rightful heir to the throne. As he competes with David for the hand of the king´s daughter, Beral struggles to hold true to his loyalties, even while he watches King Saul descend into madness. If Yahweh withdraws his protective hand, Beral and his men will be all that stand before their gathering enemies. Only one thing is certain: Beral´s fate, as well as the future of Israel, is tied to the virtue of their king, and Saul´s honor has long since fled. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stuart Gauffi.
