Very enjoyable, most wonderful narration and excellent storyline reflecting a very difficult chapter in America's not so distant past.
What a wonderful story to listen to! The various voices of the women narrators were genuine and engaging, allowing you to enter into their lives and experience the attitudes of the time. The pace of the book was perfect, encouraging just a little more listening at the end of each chapter.
I couldn't stop listening. The story made me wonder about what life was like in Mississippi in the 60's. The characters are well developed and intriguing but I was a little disappointed with the ending.
I loved this book for so many reasons! It is an intriguing story about an important time in the history of our nation, and is told exceptionally well. It is also narrated beautifully by three women.
This book was absolutely incredible, and may now be my favorite audible so far. My book club read this book a couple of months ago, and although everyone loved it, I felt that I got something special from listening to it. The narrators are absolutely fabulous and bring the book and most importantly, the characters to life. Jenna Lamia won me over in her narration of the Secret Life of Bees, and her voice and timing were spot on again. The voices of the other women were fantastic and imparted a poignancy and humor that I think would have not been as recognizable had I read this book, although the writing is also superb. Do not miss the book.
LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. The readers ARE WONDERFUL. LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. Can;t say that enough. Time flew by and I was horribly sad that it ended. LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. A MUST READ!
This is an amazing story from the standpoint that it so aptly captures the difficulties of living in a society where Jim Crowe laws are in play and Blacks have few rights, if any. It makes one think twice about recent news incidents where a group of young Black Americans were turned away from a swimming pool with their money refunded, of course, because they "changed the complexion of the club."
