The story was sad, but beautiful. I didn't love the way the narrator told the Irish accented story until well into the story. Her voice grew on me. I downloaded the Kindle book and added the whisper-sync audible version, and ended up listening to the entire story in a single weekend.
I really enjoyed this book. it was stirring heartwarming, gut-wrenching. I was a little disappointed when it seemed to end abruptly. And it left me aching to know what happened with the two main characters in the story
beautiful story, 2 things I didn't like, few curse words that were not needed and didn't inhance the story, I hated the fact that Vivienne abandoned her child. I almost stopped book and still thought that turn of events ruined book. pathetic way to take it.
I didn't love the narration. Perhaps it was the accents. But the story itself was great, especially if you or a loved one have been involved in foster care or adoption. It was a quick listen.
The story was wonderful! I laughed out loud, and cried. I preview listen to many books, and one of the most important things to me is who I have to listen to for 11 hours. The narration of this book was genius! Beware, you will be hooked once you start!
This book tells a pleasant, mostly uplifting story, but I found it a little simplistic and predictable. The older woman's stories are much more intriguing than the modern-day girl's struggles, because they weave in so much history. Her stories were definitely the highlight of the book for me.
More mainstream narrators.
It felt like the author wanted to put in a sensational gotcha ending. Unfortunately, it made no sense and Vivian's "I was a coward" just did not cut it. Had the book continued and we got true insite into her action, maybe there could have been some saving this book. Was she trying to show that adoption could be wonderful? Who knows?
