Riveting story set in the old south with generously developed characters. The ending went on a bit, but still enjoyable.
Counselor with eclectic taste, I enjoy all types of fiction, dark, strange and twisted things, humor and explicitly.
This was an entertaining listen; I and my fiancé enjoyed the story on our recent trip through the Smokey Mountains. The narration was pleasant and unobtrusive and the story flowed nicely. This story consists of poignant loving relationships. The “family” that the main character found herself cast into is a beautiful representation of human nature to bond and the other part of human nature is also represented in deeply disturbing reality. Very good listen I would definitely recommend this selection to anyone who loves historical fiction with dept of characters and emotion.
This book had my attention from Page 1 and there was never a moment after that that things slowed down or bored me. This is an epic novel about the true meaning of family and how it transcends the conventional definition. This is a "must-read" book! The narrators are excellent.
Fantastic narration and character development. Some parts were a bit slow, however - you definitely feel like you are part of the Kitchen House and sad that it ends so soon.
Loved the narrator and the characters. Longed for something to go right in the story line occasionally but it never seemed to. I missed these friends after the book was done. Sad but a good book. Made me think about how people were treated in our society.
I picked this book becuase my daughter's book club was reading it. I thought it was EXCELLENT! Great writing and great narrating. The characters are so life like. Some of the book will break your heart but it is well worth the read.
Wonderful, intriguing book! The narration is perfect. My only complaint is that the ending falls a bit flat. I wanted the story to continue with a rich, full ending but it just kinda stopped. Like the author got tired of writing and wrapped it up. However, well worth the credit. Enjoy!
I loved the story and the narrator. I don't think the ending of this story was as bad as some said, it's an ending, they can't all be happy. It's been hard for me to find a book to listen to now for a couple weeks because this one pulled me in so much. Very sad, very real, very interesting. It did make me tear up.
This was a wonderful book. There were many painful, sad moments throughout the book but it was still a great listen. Definitely recommend!
