Susan Spencer-Wendel's story is remarkable, yet sad. Susan choosing to accept her fate and live with joy is a great lesson for us all. The performance was very good. The book itself made me "google" Susan to see where she is now and how she is doing. Although parts of the book are a bit repetitive, the story is very emotional with an uplifting message.
Wonderful story...wonderful performance. I didn't want it to end. The story of Charlie Parkhurst was one that I had not heard of before. The book was a wonderful history lesson embellished by a very creative author. Excellent performance by Robin Weigert.
Although I was intrigued by both the title and the premise, this book bored me to the point where I finally stopped listening. It reads like a textbook...boring and drawn out. Although some of the case examples were very interesting, they were few and far between and a bit repetitive each time the previous case was reviewed before moving on to the next. The narrator was just awful starting each sentence loud and clear and ending each like she needed a drink of water for her scratchy throat.
I do not plan to finish the book.
The main character was honest and believable. Supporting characters were uppity and a bit over the top.
The story was very predictable. It seems as though the author was trying to recreate "The Help" but from a different perspective.
The narrator was very good. I would buy another book performed by Karen White.
