I think I wanted more from this, though, I most certainly learned some things. There are several truly funny parts. Overall, a decent read.
Historical fiction is something I truly enjoy and I really wanted to love this book the way others have. Personally, I never grew to like the main character Cora much, though she wasn't as frustrating in the final chapters.
I also didn't care much for Louise, her young charge. At the moment I believe it was meant for the reader to finally understand Louise & see her differently, I only felt pity.
The story is interesting, though felt a bit thin. The writing is enjoyable but I just wasn't carried away to New York City in the 20's as I had hoped.
Ms. McGovern was a pleasure to listen to.
quite a pleasurable escape to another time. I will seek out other books by this author. Loved it!
The book, yes. This version? No.
Annabella Sciorra is a fantastic narrator! Now that the narration has changed to Ms. Trigiani, I'm unsure if I can finish it...such an odd and bad choice.
It makes ABSOLUTELY NO sense whatsoever to change narrators in any book, and the fact that this narration change is from a very good one to one that is, in my opinion, nails on a chalkboard, I am far from pleased. Until Ms. Trigiani took over, this book was on track to be one of my favorites on Audible. Now, I cannot recommend it.
