I haven't read the print version, but hero's Scottish accent is one reason I love this book, so I suspect I would agree that the audio is better than the print. Plus Becky Hindley voice inflections are wonderful. She does it all - boredom, anger, sorrow, and laughter
I think when the hero helps save Danny.
Ah, that is difficult to say. There are so many funny scenes. From the heroine trying to understand the hero's accent to the subterfuge they engage in, to the hero's interaction with the heroine's young son.
There are several memorable scenes, like at the hospital but I think that it is the general theme of the book that overall made this such a successful book for me. The book is humorous, touching with great character growth.
I have listened to and read several of Ms. Johnson's books. The Birds and the Bees is hands down my favorite.
Every once in a while the character would talk about some medical test - like checking urine for glucose or checking for protein. Since I am in the medical field I found it interesting to see how much things have changed
I didn't make it that far . . .After listening to about 60 percent of the book, I just felt that the story repeated itself. Narrator or storyteller, would visit a bad part of the city -- be appalled at the living conditions and poverty but safely deliver a baby. This was repeated over and over.
I thought she did a good job with the material she had.
Maybe others would like one - but since I didn't finish this one, I won't be buying it.
I think the story would have used a good editor. Material was repeated in various different ways. Like the old nun - She acted senile when the narrator of the story first met her, then we have more about her - again acting senile and then again more. Some parts I didn't really understand why they were included in the story . . like the trip to the beach where the narrator has a asthma attack. I felt like I was listening to an aged person remembering her life and sharing bits and pieces with no rhythm or reason for the stories -- just what popped into their memory that day
A better story. The heroine was so whiny. I know I was very distract after my mother died too, but listening to a story where the heroine has a pity party for 3/4 of the book is not enjoyable.
I don't think so.
I didn't have a problem with the narration, just the story -
I like the story. I read it first and then purchased the audio version once it was released
The sense of family, and the journey of the hero and heroine
Probably. I live in the South, and her southern accent didn't sound authentic to me. However, I know that I have listed to other books by her and enjoyed them
There were several sweet moments. I think Ms. Kantra writes heart-felt relationships
Probably. I bought this one because I like Changing Lanes
Yes, but I would be more careful about the subject matter. This book was depressing. Heroine dealing with death of father, and end of her marriage as a result of the death of their child
Probably 1/2 of the book. While I appreciate that moving forward is something we all have to do after the death of a parent and or child. The heroine just had too many issues to face. It dragged the book down.
