Publisher's Summary

Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was 13. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have...until he wasn't beautiful anymore.
Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl's love for a broken boy and a wounded warrior's love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

A tender, authentic story about the human spirit

What made the experience of listening to Making Faces the most enjoyable?

This beautiful, heart tugging story was beautifully crafted and effortlessly kept my attention. I was astounded by how much empathy I felt for the characters in this audio book. I was very impressed with how Amy Harmon tied the story together and let the listener get insight into some of the less obvious characters, making this book a very realistic, satisfying experience.


What other book might you compare Making Faces to, and why?

Archers Voice by Mia Sheridan. This book was also filled with compassion and had a lovely gentle feel about it.


Have you listened to any of Rob Shapiro’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but now he is on my radar. I thought his narration was very, very well done. His voice changes for each character were consistent and I was never confused about which character I was listening to at any stage throughout the entire audio book.


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

This audio book was an emotional roller coaster ride. Don't expect to listen to this story and not be affected by it.


Any additional comments?
