The story was really good. The characters are boys who have been adopted by a couple. The boys are grown and both parents have died. The 4th boy is only 10 yrs old. Seth has a social worker who knows what he needs. The story could have been told without all the language. It would stand on it's own.
It has a collection of characters that just seem to be perfect together on a ranch. Everyone has a job and love is the resounding message. I laughed a lot.
What a great story. I had pushed this one around like a kid with peas on their plate, but I was so wrong. I couldn't put it down and I loved that she was of Spanish decent. The narrator was perfect and took me right along side to see every move and twist.
The beginning to the end was really good. Jenna is amazing. The 2 characters she chooses to help her are perfect. I learned so much about elephants and even that was so right. Read this one. It is worth it.
The details leads you to think it is about some property and all the family. BUT it is really about a man who has 2 daughters and his wife has been in an accident. There is a smaller character who is like a fly in the ointment to the man.. The end brought it all back full circle. I would tell some one else about this book, with a little disclaimer about it. It does have the property coursing through it.
The story went along fine until about an hour to the end. The narrator, Catherine Taber, was just flat. No emotion, even when one of the characters took her up in a small plane and let her fly it. She was just flat. She read well. The story only went so far and then it too went flat. I was overall disappointed. I have only been an audible listener for about 2 years and this is my 1st review of this sort.
This book held my attention well. There are human struggles that we all go through. I found wisdom in the honesty on the pages. .
So good. I loved every minute of this one and It would not be the same without getting to listen. I was right there. Katherine Kellgren was just excellent. I was so caught up in the story, L. A. Meyer is a great story teller. I would lover to listen to this one again.
Book #1 to #8, how many hours I have spent with Jamie and Claire. Davina Porter reads such life into every character. I couldn't put them down and I didn't want it to end. Each of the 8 books I have read could stand alone, but there will be much you miss. Start at the beginning and let Davina Porter create living beings into the story. I might just have to go back and read every one again. I have only read 1 other book that made me want to read it again and I did read it the 2nd time.
Claire and Jamie have been through so many things. War, abuse, loss and they love each other with an enduring love. Their story, their encounters, their difficult journey, I simply cannot get enough of them. I think the narration by Davina Porter is excellent. I just finished this one and the 4th one already downloaded. I have hours in these books and I have been involved in their path. Diana Gabaldon makes the characters so alive. I am not able to put them down.
Claire falls through time. Circumstances bring Jamie into her life. There are all sorts of events that happen to them as they fall in love. There are some steamy love scenes and some language. The story is told in such a great and moving way. I simply couldn't put it down.
