First a war nearly destroyed Jeremy Kelley, then his family threw him out when he needed them the most. Now he's barely holding on emotionally. He spends his last dollar to get to Chicago and prays his former best friend won't leave him out in the cold.
Neil and Jeremy spend the holidays with Neil's family in their hometown of Omaha. They struggle to deal with families, flashbacks...and feelings that haven't even begun to fade since their last failed attempt at being more than friends. As they try to repair their fractured psyches and rebuild damaged bridges, they rely on each other more than ever, but they can't deny the mutual attraction that's existed since before they were both emotionally battered and scarred. If they couldn't make it work back then, how in the world can they pull it off now?

This book is anything but cold.
Where does From out in the Cold rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's a favorite, that's for sure.
What other book might you compare From out in the Cold to and why?
Any other book written by LA Witt and narrated by Charlie David. They have an amazing partnership and I love everything I listen to from Charlie that was written by Witt.
What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Neil finally let's it all go, accepts his true feelings for Jeremy and lets Jeremy in.

Decent Book, Horrible Recording
The actual novel is quite alright, albeit a bit formulaic. But for all its predictability, it's covers a topic that needs to be written about, namely PTSD. It's offers both sweet romance and a glimmer of hope for people who might feel hopeless. In addition to the principle relationship, there are a number of examples of grace in other relationships.
I would recommend reading this book. And I mean *reading* it, because this recording of it is substandard in a number of ways. For one thing, the narrator sounds very much like a computer generated voice. Moreover, much of the time, the recording sounds as though the blank spaces between words has been removed to speed it up. Worst of all, about half way through, the treble disappears almost completely, rendering the audio nearly inaudible unless the listener goes into her or his settings to put the bass on minimum and the treble on maximum. Obviously, this made the sound quality even more unpleasant than it already was.
I hate to say it, but this recording should not have been released. It demonstrates a very slipshod attitude toward production values.
