Lorhainne Eckhart laid the groundwork and Valerie Gilbert made for a fabulous tour guide. The Friessens are complicated as they navigate their way through heartache, betrayals and surprising twists, each learns how to love and become a better and stronger compass for the people that need them most. Ms. Gilbert took a turn down memory lane with the patriarch and matriarch of the clan. Explored emotional turmoil of a parent struggling to protect a child and walked us through the growing pains of what family truly means. The Friessens were awesome from the start, but the audio dialogue gave a bunch of words the kiss of life. Making them extraordinary.
