The Water Keeper Audiobook

The Water Keeper

Author: Charles Martin Narrator: Jonathan K. Riggs, Jonathan Riggs Release Date: May 2020

A riveting new story of heroism, heartache, and the power of love to heal all wounds. Murphy Shepherd is a man with many secrets. He lives alone on an island, tending the grounds of a church with no parishioners, and he's dedicated his life to rescuing those in peril. But as he mourns the loss of his mentor and friend, Murph himself may be more lost than he realizes. When he pulls a beautiful woman named Summer out of Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, Murph's mission to lay his mentor to rest at the end of the world takes a dangerous turn. Drawn to Summer, and desperate to find her missing daughter, Murph is pulled deeper and deeper into the dark and dangerous world of modern-day slavery. With help from some unexpected new friends, including a faithful Labrador he plucks from the ocean and an ex-convict named Clay, Murph must race against the clock to locate the girl before he is consumed by the secrets of his past-and the ghosts who tried to bury them. With Charles Martin's trademark lyricism and poignant prose, The Water Keeper is at once a tender love story and a heartrending search for freedom. "I'm telling you, it's an action-packed, classic Charles Martin romance novel unlike anything I've ever read. And remember . . . the day you pick up this book is the day you become temporarily unavailable to the world." -Charlie Martin, son of Charles Martin "Charles Martin fans rejoice, because he's done it again . . . a multilayered story woven together with grace and redemption, and packed tight with tension and achingly real characters." -Lauren Denton, USA TODAY bestselling author of The Hideaway "In The Water Keeper Charles Martin crafts a compelling story with skill and sensitivity. Open the pages of this book and you'll enter the world of characters caught up in a real-life drama that grips the heart. As with all of Charles's books you never finish it-you continue to live there in your own imagination. Current fans won't be disappointed; new readers will understand why Charles Martin is on the short list of contemporary authors I recommend above all others." -Robert Whitlow, bestselling author - The first story in a new series from Charles Martin - Full-length novel (c. 110,000 words) - Also by Charles Martin: The Mountain Between Us, Send Down the Rain, Long Way Gone, When Crickets Cry

Wrapped in Rain: A Novel Audiobook

Wrapped in Rain: A Novel

Author: Charles Martin Narrator: Jonathan K. Riggs, Jonathan Riggs Release Date: May 2020

From the author of The Mountain Between Us and the New York Times bestseller Where the River Ends. "Martin spins an engaging story about healing and the triumph of love . . . Filled with delightful local color." -Publishers Weekly 'Tucker, I want to tell you a secret.' Miss Ella curled my hand into a fist and showed it to me. 'Life is a battle, but you can't fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart.' An internationally famous photographer, Tucker Mason has traveled the world, capturing things other people don't see. But what Tucker himself can't see is how to let go of the past and forgive his father. On a sprawling Southern estate, Tucker and his younger brother, Mutt, were raised by their housekeeper, Miss Ella Rain, who loved the motherless boys like her own. Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and the boys was the only good thing their father ever did. When his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, Tucker is forced to return home and face the agony of his own tragic past. Though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tuck can still hear her voice-and her prayers. But finding peace and starting anew will take a measure of grace that Tucker scarcely believes in. "Read this book and watch the sun come out." - John Dyson, writer, Reader's Digest "Charles Martin is changing the face of inspirational fiction one book at a time. Wrapped in Rain is a sentimental tale that is not to be missed." -Michael Morris, author of A Place Called Wiregrass and Live Like You Were Dying "This is the story of a real person's real struggle with the uncertainties of faith, unadorned with miracles of the deus ex machina sort but full of the sort of miracles that attend every day life if you bother to notice. Charles Martin notices, and for that I commend him. He's unafraid of tackling the crucial questions-life, death, love, sacrifice." -Duncan Murrell, editor and writer

What If It's True?: A Storyteller's Journey with Jesus Audiobook

What If It's True?: A Storyteller's Journey with Jesus

Author: Charles Martin Narrator: Charles Martin Release Date: January 2019

With the same depth, sensitivity, and emotion that has made his novels beloved to millions, Charles Martin helps us engage the fundamental principles of our faith in new and inspiring ways. Years ago, Martin cracked open his Bible and began wrestling with a few fundamental questions. He asked, "What if every single word of Scripture is absolutely true and I can trust it? How do I respond? Something in me should change, but what? How?" This audiobook is the result of that exploration. Writing as our guide, he uses a storyteller's imagination to illuminate key moments from the Scriptures, primarily from the life and ministry of Jesus. In addition, Martin shares key moments from his own journey as a disciple-and bondservant-of Christ and a mentor to others. The result is a striking exploration of truth that helps us not just think differently but live differently. Today. Includes a song written by Charles Martin's son, only available in the audiobook edition. Appendices that include topical verses from Scripture are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Twelve years ago Matthew "the Rocket" Rising had it all. Married to his high school sweetheart and one of the winningest quarterbacks in the history of college football, he was the number one NFL draft pick. But on the night of the draft, he plummeted from the pinnacle of esteem. Falsely accused of a heinous crime with irrefutable evidence, it seemed in an instant all was lost--his reputation, his career, his freedom, and most devastatingly, the love of his life. Having served his sentence and never played a down of professional football, Matthew leaves prison with one goal--to find his wife, Audrey, whom no one has seen since the trial. He returns to an unwelcoming reception from his Gardi, Georgia, hometown to learn that Audrey has taken shelter from the media with the nuns at a Catholic school. There she has discovered a young man with the talent to achieve the football career Matthew should have had. All he needs is the right coach.
