Yes. The actors were so great. I knew nothing about this story and I am so glad I didn't. The ending was very surprising and emotional ... I really felt the pain of the characters.
The mother. Julie Harris NAILED this part. Her voice was perfect and I felt her anguish, anger and indignation all through the reading. She is always sheer perfection in her parts, but this one in particular really shines.
Their voices showed every nuance of the emotion of the play. I really
The ending... wasn't expecting it. The actors were superb. I can see why this play won the Circle Award for Best Play.
Now I know why they make us read the books they do in our college literature classes. These are truly classics and timeless stories that still apply to us today. Thank God for the abiity to
Yes! Stephen King is always so great with details and it's easy to miss some of the nuances of the story. It was a great story and I was kept very interested. Didn't want it to end.
Can't elaborate without spoilers!
Dan. King does a beautiful job of making him real and giving him the dimensions a real person would have.
I never cried. I laughed a couple of times. However, I found myself talking out loud to the characters while I was listening. I was really into the story! I found myself cheering every time there was a "win."
The story of the past ... a past painstakingly researched and communicated to us in such beautiful words and organization. This is a story of being human and how our choices can lead to unintended results. I hated to have it end. This is my favorite Kate Morton story ... Grace is my favorite character to date...and I have read all Kate's stories. I can't wait till a new one is available.
The character of Grace. She was so developed and believable as she told this story. You feel as if you know her and hate to see the story end. Also, how Kate Morton builds the story and tells it. She is a magnificent storyteller. Yes, she is detailed and sets each scene so carefully ... it's why you become so involved with her characters and understand them. I love history, and she gives us historical background so well.
I love the way she reads the story. I like her accents. I could listen to her forever and never get tired of her voice.
Absolutely. I just never have the time to do so.
Read this book ... if you liked Kate Morton's other stories, I think you will love this one.
This is one of my favorites so far. Kate Morton's stories and Caroline Lee's narration together are absolute magic.
The only comparison I have are other Kate Morton books. She is awesome! I haven't read anything that I would compare it to at this time.
Everything! I love the way she narrates the story ... you become totally immersed in the story. Her accents are fabulous in my opinion.
As always, it is the end where all the threads of the story are brought together to weave a beautiful tapestry! It is a story I will continue to think about. The fairy tales were magnificent too. Such a well written story! I can't say enough about this book. I was so sorry to see it end. Every character leaves a mark on you.
Give us more, Kate and Caroline! And thanks for the awesome stories!
