Summary

Football season becomes a time of realization that life's most important victories are won off the field. A star running back with much to learn, a younger player with much to give, and a woman with a heart for underprivileged kids - all three are thrown together into a time of self-discovery and a new awareness of the things that matter most.

Critic reviews

"Kingsbury's fans like her novels sweet, and this one may motivate them to get involved and make a difference with some of the neediest kids." ( Publishers Weekly)

So disappointing !

Would you try another book written by Karen Kingsbury or narrated by Kathy Garver?

I love Karen Kingsbury in spite of Kathy Garver and I have read most of her books. I have another book by Karen in my Audible library and I do hope that Joyce Bean has done a better job than this with Oceans Apart.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I love listening and I bought Between Sundays because I loved the novel. I can listen for hours but this time one hour is more than enough! I enjoy reading more than once books that I really like and Audible has made ‘reading again’ especially enjoyable. Not this once. I am sorely tempted to hand this one back.

Great Narration

My husband was frequently around when I was listening to this audio book for the second time. Because it is sports-related (NOT a true story about the 9er's, btw), his interest was drawn. He liked the story, and does not read much fiction - preferring history/biographical books and spiritual studies in his busy world instead.

Between Sundays has some solid direction for fathers and is narrated with simplistic language - for instance, Kingsbury captures a child's thoughts as a child would think them. The narrator is easy to listen to with properly placed inflections and some voice changes for various characters. Karen Kingsbury attacks real contemporary social problems in this book, as she does in her other books. I typically prefer period history pieces, however, I have enjoyed every one of her books I've read (over a dozen of them so far) or listened to.

Kingsbury Fan

I have read and listened to most of Karen Kingsbury's books. As a result, I am a big fan. Between Sunday's was not my favorite title of hers. The story is great but it seems to move a little too slowly. There were times I couldn't stop listening and other times I just wanted the story to move on. Towards the ending, I felt it was so predictable that the pace could have been picked up a bit. I still think it is worth the read, but I am not giving it five stars.

Good book, not so great narrative

I've listened to a number of Karen Kingsbury's novels with Audible. The narrator for this one was not the best choice. Her pronunciation of various words and male character "voices" made it very difficult to focus on the actual story.

Narration spoiled this

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

I enjoyed the message of the story, but the narration nearly caused me to quit listening to the story on more than one occasion. At times the narrator could not maintain character voices long enough to follow the story. Additionally, the raspy sound of her voice when attempting male characters made me want to sign her up for voice therapy....

Who was your favorite character and why?

Megan - her pure and sincere personality made it easy to identify with her.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kathy Garver?

Someone with the ability to stay in character and differentiate between "male" voices.

Too simplistic

The flow of the story is unreal sometimes. I find it exasperating to listen on some portion of the book. People just doesn't really think the way the characters in the stories think. But it's a nice story. Just wish it could have been written with a little bit more depth.

Great story!

I have to confess that I love football, so this book pushed my buttons. It was a great combination with love story, family, football, drama and faith. I loved it and was sorry when it was over, although I was happy to see it all resolved.

Great read!

Awesome book! Another favorite!! The narrating would have been better if there was a male voice since this book had several male characters.
