I have been a fan of this author for years, as I am from the coast of SC and enjoy hearing about nearby places. I am accustomed to the happy endings that she includes in her books, but this one was just too much. The main character goes from the death of her husband to a move to another state, true love, writing a stellar play that is so grand that it is put on in Charleston, casting the play, rehearsals for the play, seeing a ghost, launching her daughter's hugely successful career and having a grandchild all in nine months. The only thing believable about this book and timeline is the grandchild. She should have let her win the lottery too as that would have fit all of the good luck this woman had in the book. Not worth the credit.
I could not wait for this book to come out and purchased it on the first day available. I could not have been more disappointed with the story and culmination of this trilogy. It was as if another author had written the book and finished up the story for Veronica Roth. She did not stay true to any of the characters or the story line. If you like the first two books, then let that be the end for you. Do not put yourself through the heartbreak of what happens to the characters in this pitiful ending to a great first two acts.
Blessed are the children, and there is truly a blessing to be received from this book. As a parent, it broke my heart at times. As a Believer, it made my heart soar. For anyone who ever wondered if Heaven is for real, after hearing this book, you'll know.
The book was slow and frustrating. The main character is weak and makes you want to just shake her. However, as the book has so little depth, I guess the character cannot be expected to be anything but shallow. Save your credits for something more worthwhile.
This book was awesome and so enhanced by the gifted narrators. As a Southerner I love to hear a true accent when a Southern accent is called for (or at least a VERY good imitation). These ladies did not disappoint. They made a great story mesmerizing. I listened in the car and found myself spending a lot of time in the parking lot with the sound turned up.
