This has to be my favorite audio book of all time and I have hundreds in my library. Each sentence weaves the storylines together in such a magnificent way with each charachter touching the lives of others with the decisions they make or situations created for them. It's an Alice Hoffman novel and it is magical, but down to earth and pragmatic with the emotional lives of the Dovekeepers. I keep thinking of the ways each women ties into each others lives playing off of each others fears, insecurities, joys and ultimately strengths. This book equals or exceeds a few I didn't think could go down a notch - The Time Travelor's Wife, Water for Elephants and Prodigal Summer left me with similar wonder with the storytelling and a sadness to say goodbye to the story.
I have hundreds of titles in my library and this is one of the worst narrations I have heard. Can't get past chapter two after repeated attempts.
Lou Diamond Phillips was extraordinary as narrator and the story was great. I listened to another Tom Wolfe novel right after because this was so good! It was intelligent yet easy, dealt with difficult issues with levity - I highly recommend.
