If you like books that wisk you away to another place and time you will like this book. The narrator does an incredible job of offering many convincing voices.
I simply did not believe I would find a book about the South in the 50's and 60's that would move me like "The Help" by the same narrator. I was wrong. I am not one to be moved to tears or laugh outloud reactions by novels. But both evoked these reactions. I can't say enough about Jenna Lamia. Her narration brought even more depth to the characters in this book.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The words were strung together like a treasured painting. The reader was perfect. While I was listening I would loose myself into another world. I wish I had an Aunt Toody!
I LOVED IT! I would be laughing one minute and crying the next. Definitely a wonderful wonderful story. The young lady who narrarates this could not be better. She brings each character to life. I love this story. I will listen to this one several times. It is precious. A++++
The reader is very good with the voices. You really get into the characters and forget the voices after awhile...The book reminded me of Secret Life of Bees.
I enjoyed the story. The characters were familiar. The life lessons were touching. This is a good book for young adults
This is one of the most refreshing books I have listened to in a long time. The story is thought provoking, insightful, sad and laugh out loud funny all at the same time. The narration is exceptional, I will look for other books read by Jenna Lamia. I am recommending this book to all my friends.
