Don't for one second let the negative reviews keep you from listening to this book!
Susan Bennett is the narrator of this book not Orlagh Cassidy. Susan gives her usual outstanding performance, so I'm not complaining at all, but it might make a difference to other listeners.
Although this books' subject is quite sensitive, I still connected with the characters and a few of their struggles. I think I would have benefited greatly and been less destructive In several of my past relationships if i were to have had the support that this group of ladies offered each other available to me! I'll definitely watch for more from Sylvia True!
When writing about a cross country trip, it seems that if an author has never actually experienced firsthand the landscape, the towns, and the scenery, then a little more effort and research would be made before writing so many inaccuracies in a novel . I stopped reading when the "salt flats" were described as being in Nevada somewhere around Winnemucca! I guess it wouldn't matter to most readers but when the characters I'm reading about are traveling across the state I've lived in my whole life, I'd much rather see it being accurately described ..
What a joke! Nothing at all useful to be learned than just playing the game a few times will teach. Narrator awful ! Very poor grammar!
I listened for only a few moments and realized what a huge mistake I had just made! I have purchased several hundred audible books in the past couple of years and should know better than to purchase without previewing a book being narrated by someone i didn't recognize! Regretfully, I did not, and now, I am more than ashamed with myself!
For years I was often heard saying "Danielle Steel is my favorite author". However, I'm so sad to say I will never be heard saying those words again. I've havent been able to finish listening to her last 7 or 8 books! It seems that she now repeats things over and over, like she takes large portions of a particular chapter and just rewords them 2 or 3 times! It makes me sad to have to say goodbye but unless I hear she has made huge writing style changes, I wont bepushing "buy" for a DS book anytime soon!
I must be missing something! The reviews I read led me to believe that this book was far better than what it actually is! I'm very glad the proceeds are going towards our veterans at least! It's a cute little story, but the reviews seem to be exaggerating things quite a bit!
Be prepared to get your tissue's out and ready! Narrator does a great job too!
Don't pass this one up! I give it 15 stars! Ed Sala's performance in this book is brilliant!
I've only been able to listen for 5 minutes of this before shutting it off! The narrator speaks too fast I actually went to see If I accidentally pushed speed up key! What a waste of good money! Be sure to listen to the sample before you buy...!
