This brought back memories of yesteryear. I will definitely read it again and pass it on to my daughter to read.
The poignant description of the 40's and 50's mores and values of American women and the way they handled the conflicts of their religious beliefs to the developing American culture.
Marjorie, and I thought Gabra did an excellent job with all the characters.
Once started this book was very difficult to put down. The male characters in this novel had many profound observations about our culture and human nature. Herman Wouk had us all figured out.
Have not read the print version and I am not a serial reader...well, I wasn't before this outstanding whodunit. I won't miss the remainder of the series, however.
Liam, an upstanding ROGUE with steel nerve and a cotton heart.
Excellent narration by Jeff Woodman, who is a new narrator for me. I will check him out for more books as he captured my admiration for this one.
I read it in one setting. I could not pull myself away.
Entertaining, realistic and well-written. I will now download the remainder of the series, which I hope continues for some time.
Realistic, compassionate, well-written
The protagonist, Louisa
Excellent narration by all readers
I kept passing this book by as I thought it a chic-lit type book....it is anything but, and I think one of the best books of the year. Don't miss it if you like heart-wrenchers.
A well-rounded plot that wasn't reaching for unconnected story lines. I passed the point of believeability in the first chapter.
Her voice simply did not match the subject matter
Heloise visiting Val in prison.
I've read and enjoyed other Laura Lipmann books, but for whatever reason, this one
gave me a yawn.
The two love stories and how they intertwined at the end.
The deep love these couples felt for each other.
I could not choose....they were both excellent
Nicolas Sparks did it again....made all of us hunger for this brand of lifetime love and respect.
The sensitive way the author handled the subjects of adoption and fatal disease..
Uncle Willie, with the wide-open mind and heart.
Peterson narrates a bit too fast at the beginning, but once he slows down, his narration of all characters, was excellent.
Martin's books takes me away from the disappointments of life....even though a bit unrealistic sometimes, they still spring hope eternal in human nature....and where would we be without that.
The brilliant duo of writer and narrator.
Terrific character development...seemed as I knew all the characters personallyand became so engrossed that I simply read the entire book in one day.
That would be a difficult choice as they all were realistic and noteworthy to the whole story. Caroline Lee is a superb reader and helps bring all characters alive.
Will definitely checkout this author's other books.
NO, It was rather drawn out and could have been told in half the time.
Didn't think there was sufficient character development to love or hate the characters.
Hannah...the other characters were frustratingly inept in their development.
The historical facts surrounding this novel were extremely interesting as well as the description of life as it was in the late 1800's.
The wacky character of Aurora who will not disappoint.
If you enjoyed 'Terms of Endearment', you will delight hearing Aurora deal with her 3 grandchildren and they with her. The plot was weak, but the characters stole the show. The narrator was better than average.
YES....from the eyes and (ears) of a native Texan, this novel sits well on the shelves
with spellbinding epic novels such as 'Giant' and 'Lonesome Dove'. Do not miss
I cannot wait for the next novel from Philipp Meyer.
I don't think so;
No, I believe this narrator was WAY over the top....slow and melodramatic
