My plan was to listen while exercising, so as to give me just that little bit more motivation. It worked for a while, but then I couldn't stand not to know what happened next, so I listened while folding laundry and knitting. My husband and I ended up in a race to the finish, sworn to gloat but not reveal any spoilers. He win but just by a little.
The characters are well drawn, the story is compelling, historical details are fascinating and the narration is amazing.
Well-written, suspenseful, believable, uplifting, exciting, and heartbreaking , this was a story that had me from the beginning until the end. I was truly saddened when it was over.
The performance was spectacular! The book was exciting, fulfilling and heartbreaking! It has been a long time since I have felt so utterly affected and moved by the characters of a book yet this book has broken that streak. I highly recommend it to anyone!
The 2nd time through I noticed so many connections that I didn't make on the first listen. I also called cried harder than I did the first time through. Such wonderful, real characters.
Very interesting story with good character development. This one held my attention throughout, and I can easily recommend it as an engaging page turner (if it'd had pages).
Loved the different voice with the proper accents for Queenie and the other characters.
I loved Julie! She was so strong and clever and her hope was for the overall mission not for herself.
The bike ride where they shared their fears and then later both were critical of their naivity.
Well worth the read.
I found it historically interesting at the same time drew me in the the life of the women it depicts i felt the author did very well at keeping me wanting more...
I loves the whole book and found it emotional at times (i was seen with tears in my eyes) and that is what a good book should do . I loved the bond that formed between Maddie & Julia
I tried, really, to get into this book. Felt I hadn't been paying attention so rewound to beginning after an hour in. Many reviewers suggested things perk up in the middle. Maybe so but I have more to do with my time. This was just too slow and tedious.
I might have been misled, and skipped over buying this audiobook as it came out as a children's book; young adults.
I have been retired now ten years. My education occurred without TV and decades before personal computers and the internet Suffice it to say i have read an uncommon amount of literature. This is one of the very best performances and carefully written books in your inventory i wiil be looking for more, please.
