This was a really great book. I loved the way you get to know the characters and the problems of life they lived through. I will be watching for more books by Kate Morton.
Caroline Lee did a marvelous job performing this book.
I usually never read or listen to a book more than once. Same for movies. You know what happens already
Just an awesome story, loved the characters and the mystery involved!
Suspensful, Entertaining, Great, it's always worth the wait for her books, everyone of them has been just teriffic.
Like the history, love hearing about the past and then going back to the present.
She just wants to make you keep listening, a super reader.
Can't wait for her next book
Kate Morton has written an intricate plot that twists and turns as it bounces back and forth from London circa 1941 to 2011. It's nice and long , ~20 hours, for those that enjoy longer works.
Only 4 stars for performance because sometimes it was hard to tell which "character voice" the narrator was using.
Delicious, Romantic, Surprising
Dolly, she had many different sides
Loved loved loved her accent and how she changed her voice for difference characters, really seemless.

critical book reader
My first book of the year. It is a very patient, but moving novel. The wonderful and bitter-sweet kaleidoscope of lives, passion, love, mysteries, and friendship create a touching and intricate patterns on the rug, called life.
From the beginning, the story got me guessing and every time I thought I had it figured out, a new twist was introduced. Beautiful descriptions make the story believable and the narration is flawless.
The imagery, the fact that the main characters were so human with all their flaws and hopes and the performance was well managed through the various characters and the different times. It made me re-think and appreciate my parents as people.
This is a great story that keeps you involved as the reader learns what was going on, but not until the end does it all come together.
The unexpected final knowledge and the love of the whole family for each other.
natural accent added so much color to the story.
This book was exceptional, I knew there were twists, turns, etc. I thought I knew them...I didn't, you think you are smarter than all the other reviews and think you guessed it, you know you've guessed it, or have a good idea of what's going on, and you really don't. I would definitely recommend this book.
It's hard to listen to at first but keep listening, it is so so worth it. I read a review that said it, and I am so glad that I kept listening. I felt like I knew the characters so well by the end and was very attached to them and the entire story.
