This is a very sweet story that is a delightful listen. If you a are looking for a peaceful, charming adult fairy tale, you will enjoy this book.
I love audiobooks so hard!
Yes! It was a fantastic story.
This was another wonderful story by Sarah Addison Allen. The ONLY reason I knocked off a star for the story is because the ending was so abrupt! Everything else was fantastic. I think I may have found another favorite author.
SAA's books are always magical and delicious- this one left me feeling like it ended just a little too abruptly. I think the reader deserved to see the reunion at the end, but maybe I'm greedy.
Not much of a reader but love to listen
This is my first book by Sarah Addison Allen and what a book it is. The story is so sweet and the narrator does a fantastic job with the character voices. I would listen to it again just to hear the voices.
I know there will be a sequel because the end leaves you wanting more.
There were so many I couldn't begin to say and besides it would give away the story.
I love the voices of the two main males characters were by far my favorite voices.
I did listen to the book in one sitting. I was just taken away.
I thought this book was a little heavy on cliches. A swoony innocent teenager, a not-really-rebellious rebellious lady who'd never married, and a weird story about glowing people with not much depth or reasoning behind it, but it had just enough of a story and description for me to make it through to the end.
I am a woman who loves to read and to listen to books. I want to be entertained and taken to another place when I listen..
I don't want to give this amazing story away..it was so very good. It of course had a little magic in it for good measure like all of her books have. I think that is what makes them so special.
Some of the characters were a bit ridiculous. Are there really grown people out there who are that hung up on things that happened in high school? Maybe there are, but it just wasn't believable to me, and I had the urge to yell, "Move on!" on more than one occasion.
The stereotypical characters
She was a good choice for this book.
Disappointment. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't.
