The friendships in this book are good, strong, and wonderful. I loved hearing Phillipa's many thoughts and talks with people, "Be still and know I AM" keeps ringing in my head.
Phillipa. Her humor, the heartbreak she overcomes, the friendships, and her willingness to become a better pastor. And of course Waldo!
The Margo part person's voice was a too whispery. I did not care a lot for that voice. But loved it anyway.
There are some surprises on Ties That Bind. The title gives a hint toward what happy relationships might take place. Enjoyed continuing reading more about this lovely little town and these hood friends.
Love to read, love to listen!
I enjoy these characters. The book stands alone, but is even better as a series.
I do not like that different readers have been used in the different books of the series. I get used to the voice of a character, and I don't like to see it changed.
Marie Bostwick knows how to enter our hearts and lives and put us in her stories. She is introspective and sensitive to the foibles of life's' ups and downs without being maudlin or explicit. We are allowed to interpret emotions according to our own ideals and mores. Looking forward to more from the cobbled court.
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
Really enjoyed this book! It takes us back to New Bern, Connecticut with the same old characters we love, but Marie adds a couple new personalities in this chapter.
The two main characters were read by two different women and this added so much to this story. Both readers were very good. I enjoyed the story and the character development was outstanding--I really related to their reactions.
