Called for Life
I was so blessed to listen to this book, Called for Life by Kent and Amber Brantly and Dave Thomas. I closely followed the story of Dr. Kent Brantly last year when he had Ebola, listening to updates and praying for him and his family.
This book tells the Brantly's story--how they met, why they went to Liberia, and the details of his battle with Ebola. It is truly a remarkable story. This is a great read to hear things from his perspective instead of parts of the story we were told via the media. I appreciated that his wife's story was included as well of her feelings as she tried to process the whole ordeal as she was was across the globe from her husband.
The narrators, Kaleo Griffin and Sarah Zimmerman, were a great fit for this book. I've heard Dr Brantly speak in person and felt the male narrator did a good job with his part. The female narrator was just as fitting in my opinion. I appreciated that two narrators were used.
This is an excellent book, and it will touch your heart. Find Called for Life here.
I received the audio version of this book as part of the christianaudio Reviewers program. Thank you. (I should add that it ended up taking me a while to listen to this completely and get my review done due to some things happening at home. Thank you for your patience.)
Have a day of blessings!
