This is at least the third time I've read or listened to this story. I love it more each time. So much to learn about cultural suppression of women, resiliency, human nature and our ties to the earth.
Timeless story delivered with superb narration. For those who have read Buck, this is a great audible version. For those new to Buck, this is a fine introduction.
I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.
I don't usually go for high literature or drama, but I am trying to expand my horizons. This book has some beautiful prose, and a moving story with characters that you can care about.
This wonderful story was made even better by the perfect performance of Mr. Heald. Probably the best audiobook performance I've ever heard; he captured the characters and the mood with precision.
I fill my 2-hour commute per day with non-fiction, classics, historical fiction and an occasional contemporary fiction.
The upside to a two-hour a day commute - listening to the books I never had the time or inclination to read when I was younger! I usually prefer non-fiction. I think what drew me to this story was how oddly relevant it is - though it took place in such a different time and place. The choices we make regarding family and work, the priorities we set, and life being passed from one generation to the next. Both the writing and the narration were a joy.
I'm a retired mental health professional now I make jewelry while listening to audio books. I live in the NW corner of the contenent.
I really enjoyed this book. I do think would make a great movie and I like the title.
