    What secrets can be found by the light of the Cajun moon? New Orleans may be the "Big Easy", but nothing about it was ever easy for international business etiquette expert Chloe Ledet. She moved away years ago, leaving her parents and their famous French Quarter restaurant behind. But when she hears that her father has been shot, she races home to be by his side and to handle his affairs, only to learn a longhidden secret that changes everything she knew to be true about herself and her family.

    "Unexpectedly good"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the storyline - even though I often got annoyed with the main character's "quick to judge/dismiss" personality. Yes, there is a religious element to the story, but I didn't feel like it was extremely overt or off-putting.

    What I couldn't stand was the narrator at first. Towards the end, the accents began to come through, but for a story of New Orleans, Creole and Cajuns, I want some GREAT accents.

    Few novels have had as profound an impact on American culture as On the Road. Pulsating with the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, illicit drugs, and the mystery and promise of the open road, Kerouac's classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be "beat" and has inspired generations of writers, musicians, artists, poets, and seekers who cite their discovery of the book as the event that "set them free".

    Guillermo says: "My Favorite Narration and a Wonderful Book"
    "A Classic"
    Overall

    A classic story beautifully read by narrator Will Patton. Patton brings to life the vocal intonations that were common in the days that Kerouac lived this crazy vagabond lifestyle - bringing us to feel like we were there in those cars and buses with him and those he traveled with.
