It's so easy to judge people by the way they act and not knowing the road they have walked. This is a beautiful story that not only chronicles the bonds of family but the history that affects us all. Great story.
I have not read the print version but after listening to the audio version and the incredible performance by Susan Ericksen, I can't imagine getting the same emotional response from print.
That "a ha" moment when Nina and Merideth connect the dots..... no spoiler alert here.
Kristin Hannah has become one of my favorite authors. Each of her stories leaves me spell bound. I laugh, I cry and become so caught up in the story I feel as I'm living it. I first listened to "The Nightengale" thinking this has to be her best work. Then, "Firefly Lane" and "Fly Away" and realized these are as good or better. I was almost afraid to listen to "Winter Garden", fearing it would disappoint in light of the others but no, it was as good or better.
This book exceeded all my expectations! I went through the entire gamut of emotions in this one! Beautifully done! Can't recommend strongly enough!
Not often do I actually cry while reading a book...I did with this one.
Some daughters are blessed with a mother that is like we all wish for.
Others need to look deeper and look for the love that lies below the surface.
