Retired RN after having been employed in acute care hospitals for 52 yrs..Love reading and now audible.. Would not do housework without it
The story held my attention right from the beginning.. Ive always enjoyed lighthouses and have made a ooint to visit them on both coasts They have played such an important part of our maritime history... The plot kept me emotionally involved right to the very end ..I would definately recommend it ..We are reading it for our bookclub this month
For this being a fiction book, it sure did end differently than I was hoping. I would've expected that ending from a book that was based on a true story. I gave it four stars overall because I would definitely suggest you read it. I could have been happier with the story on a whole, but I did like the narrator. He made everything sound romantic and sweet. Worth the read.
I know I will love this book based on trusted recommendations but lack of free time and the enormous amount of windshield time make it impossible to actually read. The narrator has ruined this beautiful story and I don't know if I can actually finish the audible version. There's nothing like a voice making my skin crawl whilst sitting in horrid traffic. Audible experiences have kept my sanity in check historically but now I'm losing it!! Please get a new reader!!
I had a real hard time listening to this book because of the narrator. I felt he mumbles, his tone went up and down and the pronunciation was difficult to understand. I am used to hearing all different accents, so it wasn't that.
Powerful book. Perfectly executed reading. Noah Taylor reads with a gentle reverence for this gut-wrenching tale of love and loss.
