I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who valued high standards of clean language and any refinement in their lives. It's so pathetic that authors think they are so sophisticated when they insert smutty words into their otherwise good stories. This is one of those. It was recommended by Audible and so my faith in their recommendations is very low as well now. I wish I knew how to get my money back on this and a few other books that I will not subject my ears and mind to.
I am not into torture, and this was torture to listen. Just not my cup of tea.
book did not lend the actors to be too excited about performance.
I loved this book. Full of Southern charm, a magic apple tree, a town full of quirky characters and plenty of romance (though this is not a romance novel). I'll definitely read more books by Sarah Addison Allen.
I love audiobooks so hard!
What a wonderful surprise! For me, this is one of those books that I wish I could forget the entire book just so I could re-experience it for the first time. The way the story expanded and switched POVs just worked. I loved getting to know the characters and I empathized with them.
I love this story so so much. It was magical and happy and grand.
I loved the characters and the tree. The world they lived in was enchanting and the way the author describes their use of magic was very organic. However I took off one star for predictability and for rushing the ending. I wish the author had described their feelings after the last dramatic scene better and allowed the story to flow to a more natural end. Overall it was a good book and I already downloaded the sequel.
This is a rare story that shows how life sometimes goes but the goodness in people is always there and has a little bit of magic for us us who believe!!!
I really enjoyed this book
As a mom of young children I like to listen while I do laundry or dishes etc. Audio books give me the chance to read (listen) more!
This story seems one part Charlaine Harris and one part 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. The southern accents are great and the unusual aspects of the story add to the charm.
I just love books. I would rather read then do just about anything else.
From the moment the story started, I was in love. The story of this family is told with humor, courage and a little bit of magic! Each character could easily have been a caricature but they were each developed well enough to expand beyond the flat characters they could have been. I even fell in love with the apple tree. This story is magical. It is a little predicable in the happily ever after way. But, anything else would have left me wanting.
