The "behind the scenes" details and story-line. This book followed what I have known in history about these relationships very closely...some speculation of course, because it's fiction, but very closely ties to the history lessons...
The revealing of the "Saint Fraud"...I won't say more so as not to ruin it for you....
Catherine Parr, The Nurturing Queen
The characters are believable for the time period. The narrators have great character voices for both the male and female participants in this sad but true to life story. You will not want to stop the story....A great read!
I would listen again, yes, it is a great story that is set in the early 1960's, a sometimes scary and sad, yet simple time. Loved the sweet voice of the narrator.
Not to spoil the story, but the sister, May, touched my heart in her innocent love for others and their hardships, and how she ultimately responded to the grief and sadness.
Loved all the "Calendar Sisters". They knew the secret of "how to do life"...
This is such a lovely story, please don't miss this!!!
