Publisher's Summary

A story of honesty and humor for anyone who has ever lived and loved from New York Times best-selling author LaVyrle Spencer.

Agatha was the picture of primness and propriety, but her green eyes could blaze with anger - or sparkle with humor.

Scott was the picture of lazy charm and happy indifference to what others thought was right and wrong.

They were enemies, then friends. Then the sweet innocence of a child opened their eyes and their hearts - and they were reborn in each other's arms by the soft, wondrous gift of love.

One of my favorite stories of all time

I read the book when it first came and have read it a number of times over the years. It was disappointing to discover that Audibles only had an abridged version.

I was thrilled to discover it is finally out in full-length version.

A great story and a joy to listen to.

Beautiful love story.

The Gamble has always been one of my favorite stories by LaVyrle Spencer, who is a master story weaver. Her characters are well defined, filled with interesting flaws and they grow into strong and loving people that become like family. The Gamble is one of those stories. I highly recommend it. I’m thrilled to have it in audio version.

Pure Excellence from beginning to end!!!

I love reading and never know I could enjoy narrated books like this!
I'm very interested in narrating books now to see if I can convey stories in such a heartfelt and exciting way.

Confused

This author is so incredibly talented but I cannot read her books anymore. Her main theme is sex, the underlying foundation is sex. Explicit, detailed sex. This author seems to have an obsession with sex. I cannot blend the two "styles" in my mind. I find it strange. Does anyone know of a book by this author that does not have explicit sex in it ?

I did not read much of this book because I stopped when I recognized what she was setting up----oh no----here we go again. A naïve, insecure woman is unknowingly sought after by an experienced, worldly, but nice man. Sex manual. SO disappointing because I love the other parts of her stories. Exquisite writing. What a shame she trashed her novels. They could have been classics. But instead they're Little House on the Prairie meets 50 Shades of Gray
