I was captivated from the very beginning. Precise, concise, vivid character portrayal, heart melting story without being too sentimental. It made me want to live in the South (and as a hard core Northerner that is saying a lot) Jenna Lamia is an AMAZING narrator...which, if you read The Help...you will have heard her already.
A delightful listen with a variety of rich, interesting female characters. Above all, another fantastic read by Jenna Lamia. I became a huge fan of Jenna Lamia after The Help. Another job superbly done! My next book will be another read by Jenna Lamia. (Jenna, if you're reading this --- you are a wonderful talent!! Please narrate more books!)
I was drawn to this book because of Jenna Lamia. She, as always, was fabulous! And so was the story. I loved every minute - so worth the credit and the time spent lost in this delightful, well-written, beautifully-narrated story.
Her narration draws you deep into the story; in the midst of the characters' thoughts. If you enjoyed this book, listen to "The Help", where Jenna Lamia's talents shine once again!
First, let me say that I chose this book because of the narrator. I really enjoy Jenna Lamia's voice and have listened to many books, just because she was narrating. This was one of those books.
The story itself was a tale of very likable women who led normal but interesting lives. It is a sweet story and I really enjoyed it.
Powerful insight into how mental illness affects lives on so many levels. Very well written - very early in the story I questioned whether or nor I would be able to listen to some of the painful momens in the story. The author then gives you hope that perhaps there could be a silver lining in the story - however, there were so many times one would guess the shoe would drop - it became a cat and mouse game. The characters were well developed and you will look forward to hopefully another appearace of many of the characters. Excellent narration!
At first I thought the narrator of this book, Jenna Lamia, was going to be hard to listen to for the entire book because she has a very child like voice, but as new characters were introduced, the depth of her abilities became apparent. She's very talented at bringing the various characters to life, and I have now looked for other books narrated by her. I loved this story. It warmed my heart.
Not only was this book beautifully written, it was beautifully read. The narrator's voice changed seamlessly from the main character, a young child, to all the other supporting characters.
From the beginning, I cared about this girl and her story - with humor and the perfect narration.
A light listen and good narrator. It kept my interest from beginning to end and I couldn't wait to get back to it. Recommend it highly.
