I listened to over half of the book waiting for something to happen. Maybe it would entertain an 8th grader....
I love this book! The character development was thorough, and the emotional surprises engaging! Every book I've read by this author keeps me interested and going back for more...
I Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
Thank God for Eva ! This was an emotional listen but one with an educational value that ALL teens should know if you listen to this book be prepared for different emotions that may come. This was my first listen from this author but it won't be my last.
After reading and loving The Nightingale, I was eager to read another book by Kristin Hannah. I was very disappointed in both the writing and the story. Without dropping a spoiler, the story was predictable and unimaginative. As for the writing, it bears no resemblance to the detail and nuance of The Nightingale. I remember thinking if I heard the description "pink bow lips" one more time, I might have to quit listening. Also, how many times do you need to use the phrase "he talked to strand of hair behind her ear." Maybe my expectations were just too high based on The Nightingale.
wow. phenomenal story of motherhood, loss, forgiveness. master storyteller and perfect reader. highly recommended, but keep the tissues nearby. spellbinding pageturner.
