Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a magnificent Charleston home, Jessie Rowland wants for nothing. Her rich, indulgent father has filled her room with expensive toys, but her frantically over-protective mother keeps her from having friends and never lets her out of her sight. As she grows into adulthood, her family's stifling possessiveness feeds her feelings of loss and isolation and fuels terrible nightmares from which she wakes screaming, night after night.

At 19, she makes her escape to Washington, D.C., where no one knows her and where, as assistant to a prominent Texas senator, she is soon swept into a whirlwind marriage to his handsome son.

But as the Senator's career collapses in scandal, her marriage turns ugly and abusive, triggering again her strange dreams of lost happiness.

Finders Keepers is Jessie's story - the story of a child stolen from a loving home...of a woman lost in a life that is not her own...of a family shattered by an unspeakable crime. Jessie must rip the veil of every illusion before she can reclaim her life, and journey through a maze of heartbreak before she can find her way back to the place she can truly call home.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had to listen to the end...so I guess it was time well-spent.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The main plot of the story-a child being abducted-was quite thrilling. The multiple subplots made the story a convoluted mess!


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed the narrator. She did the best she could with the repetitious and juvenile dialogue provided by the author.


    Could you see Finders Keepers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    If this book were turned into a movie it would have to be directed by multiple people as there were entirely too many story lines combined into one.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of Fern Michaels' Sisterhood books and really enjoyed them. This book had a great premise, the original story line, but the author took the story on numerous tangents, veering away from the original plot. Then, in the end, the completion of the plots had to be tied-in and seemed rushed. As a matter of fact, the end of the book didn't even seem to be an end. It certainly wasn't a cliffhanger, just not thoroughly explained or described.

    "Hard to get into"

    Narrator is good at differentiating characters, but I didn't like her voice. This is a slow moving story, and I only recommend it if you've listened to seemingly everything else and it's on sale.

    Story
    "Fascinated"
    What made the experience of listening to Finders Keepers the most enjoyable?

    The reader made the book very listenerable (if there is such a word)!!


    What other book might you compare Finders Keepers to and why?

    Quite a few of Fern Michaels - I just love it when she brings dogs into her stories - makes them so human and loving.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Gosh, I am sure I have, but cannot recall any particular one - she was very good with this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction, but certainly a few times when I held my breath and could not wait to find out the outcome!!


    Any additional comments?

    I just love Ferm Michaels way of writing - I live it.

    Story
    "first half of book was good, last half was painful"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who wants background noise without listening to content


    Has Finders Keepers turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Love everything she does.


    Any additional comments?

    Heroine was a whiner and unlikeable in the second half of the book. Don't waste your time.

    I was unsure about this book at first but it was so good. There were many different things going on throughout the book that always kept me guessing. I enjoyed this book very much!

    Any additional comments?

    This was a book purchased through a promotional sale. I did not expect it to be this good!
    I'm going back to find more from this author AND the narrator.

    "simplistic easy listening"

    Pretty basic --i'm used to my main characters having some sort of special quality..and jessie just doesn't live up. She's kindof...well...dense... but that's okay. It's a nice listen. Just don't expect too much from it!

    Story
    "Perfectly awful."

    Insipid, predictable and poorly written, this story is chock full of hackneyed sayings, tired plot devices and stereotypical characters. Downloaded this as a discounted "summer read", but $4.95 was too much for this stinker. Don't know why I bothered to finish it--huge waste of 10+ hours! Garbage.

    "Fern Michaels is Magic"

    Fern Michaels weaves her magic once again. Have to say that I found the ending disappointing and disjointed. Could have done with a few more chapters.
