I highly recommend this book. Sweet and tender - well thought out. Each bend in the trail of this book leads somewhere and just when you think you know where it's going - there's a surprise.
Maybe I would compare it to The Help. The characters are so vivid that you can paint a picture of them in your mind - well before it makes it to any screen. One knows the whole story of the lives of those even slightly mentioned. Some characters are sad,
THE BEST. His voice could lead me anywhere.
If you were lucky enough to have the time to read this all in one sitting - OH YES.
Gripping, moving, educational
There are so many moments in this book that I bookmarked that I decided to listen to it again. I believe the point where Solly takes the defense of his mother into his own hands will be remembered for quite a while
Also, when the author was speaking of the destruction of the cattle I was lead to read more about that. It was a true action taken by the government. I was amazed by that.
When they discovered the Solly was processing thoughts! Uplifting!
The name is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about this book.
I have read and listened to thousands of books. Rainwater is most definitely in my top 15.
I have read most of Sandra Brown's books. I liked most of them, and this one is definately one of her better ones.
For the most part, I avoid reading about the Great Depression. I was born into it and have no nostalgia for the
Victor Slezak's portrayal of the main male character is superb! His deep voice coupled with a seemingly authentic Texas drawl was perfect in conveying the sexuality of the man.
The plot and characters were well developed. It reminded me of the book, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
When the history of the watch was revealed.
I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.
As usual Sandra Brown delivers an excellent book. I am so excited by the sheer depth and emotion that each of her stories invoke. My favorite author to date!!!!!!
Short and simple: I loved this book and the narrator did a good job. The characters were interesting and believable and the storyline was interesting. I looked forward to listening whenever I got a chance. Good way to spend a credit.
Will the real Sandra Brown please start writing again, because whoever wrote this complete piece of trash has no talent. It violates the most basic "show don't tell" rules with totally inane statements like "she knew he was asking a rhetorical question and so didn't answer". The hero and herione are both completely unrealistic people with no flaws whatsoever. They're also the most well-educated and forward-thinking people the Depression era ever saw as regards mental illness and race. The end is about a nanosecond long, but conveniently resolves everything - almost as if the author herself couldn't even be bothered with it anymore. The narrator does what he can with this, but it's beyond redemption. Don't waste your money or your credit.
I really enjoyed th is Sandra Brown book. It had a good plot that kept your interest.
