Definitely. It was very enjoyable. The narration was excellent and believable.
I loved the characters; the story just came alive for me.
Yes. I was compulsive about listening to the next chapters!
This author is now one of my favorites. The story was so well told and easy to follow. The narrator was excellent. If you loved the "HELP".... you will like this even more. At times it was disturbing to my heart but it showed how depraved people can be. I loved the way the author developed the characters.
I really enjoyed the interaction between the young "Avenia" and Papa. He was so tender to her little heart that needed to belong. I soaked up the part where he assured her he would always be her family.
Belle... was the most remarkable character. The way she held to truth and was unafraid to defend even though she had been so mistreated.
Yes if they are interested in this time in history.
The relationship between Belle and Lucy I found fascinating. The least interesting - Marshall. The violence and tragedies seemed cliched.
Ms. Cassidy did a fine job and Bahni Turpin's performance was wonderful. They both brought the characters to life.
Yes, the story is so rich I will hear the story from another angle.
The feeling of pain due to the racism in our history.
The beatings and burnings.
This book was great from start to finish. The narrators were superb and made the story so real. The book was about 13 hours in length and each time I had to stop listening, I couldn't wait to find time to get back to "reading" it.
The character development felt hollow. There were a lot of characters with a lot of potential but I felt cheated because it seemed like no one ever got really developed. Maybe the scope of the book was too broad. I kept thinking that something would make it worth the listen, but didn't really find anything.
Wife, mom of one amazing son, and I have the second best job in the world, working in a bookstore :)
I haven't read the print version but I would think so because the narration brought the characters to life so well.
I liked the suspense and how you didn't know which way the story would turn.
The reunion towards the end of the story
I would totally recommend this book to a friend and especially if this was to be there very first audiobook. The readers brought the characters to life!!
When Mama finally confronts Marshall! The build up and drama were amazing.
I enjoyed the scenes of "jumpin the broom"
I did cry during many of the gripping scenes with Mama and Lavinia. The readers were so believable and you could feel all of the emotions
I loved this book! Though very tragic the strong love and bond of a family is overwhelming!
Excellent story tellers.
