Excellent narration...interesting characters.
Made me laugh outloud!
Interesting twists and turns! Very entertaining.
Wonderful story that made me laugh and weep!
The courage of these women!
I listen to books while I drive, and this book made me want to take a road trip. Sometimes I sat in the driveway for awhile waiting for a good place to stop.
Truly inspirational! What small thing could we change in our world if we only had the courage?
Yes, it's truly an escape story.

Great adventure story. A bit long on the S&M details, and I'm not sure Frank Randal adds anything to the story if you are not into that kind of thing. The rest of the story makes it worth riding out those parts. I read the book decades ago, and I enjoyed Davina Porter's narration even more.
I especially love hearing Miss Sadie's stories.
Yes, and no. Hard to turn off, and yet I wanted it to last forever.
If you've not read Jan Karon's Mitford stories, start at the beginning and be prepared to be swept away. On my most frazzled days, these stories can soothe my soul. These characters become friends almost instantly. Father Tim has had a profound impact on my life. If Mitford existed, with Father Tim still living in the rectory or the little yellow house next door, I’d be arranging for moving trucks right now!
While I think Jon Kabat-Zinn's message is critically important to our health and well being in this wild and crazy world. I did however, find the narration so calm and soothing that I had trouble staying focused. I found myself leaving the "moment" he quietly murmured about, and thinking about all the nagging things on my to do list. It was solid evidence that I REALLY need this book, but I have to be present in the moment to HEAR the book if I am to learn anything. I upped the narration speed on my Kindle a bit and it helped. Worth the listen, but maybe in small "moments" instead of your long commute.
