Love to listen to all books via audible. Member since 07. Listen to 4 to 6 books a month. Retired RN. Excited to be part of a new book club!
I chose this book because the young narrator was born the same year I was, 1953. The story took place in 1963. I was raised in an all white rural town in Minnesota, totally ignorant of issues between the black and white in Mississippi. Not a five star book like The Help, but a solid 4 star. If you are looking for a book about racial issues in the 60's, relationships and the value of family-with the added bonus of a feisty ten year old narrator, you are sure to enjoy this audiobook.
Excellent book and story. Excellent narrator. Great character development. I love historical fiction and can't wait to read Herman Wouk's next book. I enjoyed the story and I learned so much at the same time. What a treat!
Wonderful, but painful story of two women best friends during World War II. I, personally, can't summarize this book, without giving too much away. Excellent story, excellent narration. It will definitely stick with you. I, also, agree with another reviewer that I need to go back and listen to the book again. I highly recommend this book - especially if you enjoy WWII historical fiction - with an added plus that the main characters are women!
