Love mysteries with a lot of twist and turns. Page turners. Love books that invite me in to stay awhile and make me sad when it ends. It can be the voice that brings the story to life or the story that breaths life into the voice. I am happy either way!!
Absolutely ! I was held captive by Victor Slezak's performance and might I add a little in love. You just can't get that kind of tenderness and strength from the printed page.
Mr. Rainwater - hands down!! He was just a good man who always tried to do the right thing. Slow and easy - every time he spoke I thought of honey and how smooth it glides along its path.
Mr. Rainwater. Looking for other Victor Slezak performances.
Extreme? No but I became so immersed in the story until I lost all track of time. Was very sorry to see it end. Listened twice!
If you are looking for good solid story, told with grace and tenderness then this is it. You will not be disappointed.
I loved the fact that it told you a different aspect of life during the depression, how life continued with it's own personal problems,problems that had nothing to do with the depression.
The intertwining love story in the back ground and what resulted because of it. The intense love for a child lost in his own mind with a yet unnamed syndrome.
Ella helping Mr. Rainwater who was covered in blood from butchering the cows that would help feed the starving people of shanty town.
This book was well written and kept my interest through out. It was difficult hearing about the corruption and abuse that was dealt to the poor white folks but even more to the poor black folks at that time. I didn't see the ending coming but was pleased that it ended the way it did.
Sandra Brown does it again. Cry, laugh, want the book not to end. Could not stop listening. A must read. Victor
As I started to listen I wasn't sure I would like this book. However, the longer I listented I couldn't stop. This was a wonderful story and a great listen. Thanks!
yes, good story & keeps your interest
No made me cry at times
Had to go back to the start after the end of the book
Give yourself the opportunity and listen to this audio book. Feel yourself drawn into your imagination of a story so real, in a beautiful Southern language rarely heard anymore.
I loved it. It has many facets, as all characters contribute so much to this story, I don't think I crasped it all. I am sure I will listen to it again, because this is a story of layered discoveries.
.....it is hard not to love the Ella and David, the main characters in this book. The story is based in the depression era and the many difficulties people had to deal with and a small boarding house and it's occupants. It is touching to see how love develops between Ella and David but it also stings the heart when the outcome is not what you would wish to happen........the ending is bittersweet and there is a chance it will bring tears to your eyes.......it did mine. I loved reading this book........what a treat!
Rainwater is a delightful, easy listen that is over before you know it. It had me wanting more but, really, it was the right length given the story line. Victor Slezak narrated it to perfection. Highly recommended!
Kindness, Love, and compassion
It was a fresh and heartwarming story of love
Solly, I believe he became an interesting man.
Rainwater is not the best book I have ever read but it was a very good story. I was pleased with the originality of the story. It pushed me to purchase another Sandra Brown novel which turned out to be way more predictable.
