I love Jenna Lamia as a narrator and was thrilled to see a new book by Beth Hoffman. If you loved, The Help, Saving CeCe Honeycutt, You will also love this book
So glad I found a beachy fun novel that's not xxrated 20 something romance. Perfect for the over 40 set.
I haven't gotten past the first three chapters. Her nasal tone whining about her middle class childhood in an upper class neighborhood is driving me nuts.
I loved it. Bill Bryson has an excellent storytelling style. He is so descriptive I felt like I was on the trail with him (I should mention I enjoy hiking and aspire to thru-hike the trail someday - I have not enjoyed other Bryson books nearly as much when I didn't relate to the story)
When his buddy throws all their food out the first day
He's telling his own story with his own dry sense of humor
I love the period and the view point of the slaves
Kitchen house - similar time period
Wasn't as compelling as some, but still an excellent read
So slow - painful - characters are not interesting and the author trys to make it more suspensful than it is.
I'm going back to true crime
I was so sad I wasted a credit on this, but didn't want to waste my money so I listened to the whole thing
The author is so descriptive of the places and people that I immediately went out to see if this travel group still exists and if I could too go visit the orphanage.
I think the book especially pulled at my heartstrings knowing it is a true story. Unlike many other reviewers I was completely surprised by the ending.
