    There are shelves of memoirs about overcoming the death of a parent, childhood abuse, rape, drug addiction, miscarriage, alcoholism, hustling, gangbanging, near-death injuries, drug dealing, prostitution, or homelessness. Cupcake Brown survived all these things before she'd even turned 20.

    Absolutely would recommend this book to anyone. It speaks to the real human side of life. It gives you a peek into another's life that might be completely different than yours - BUT Cupcake is just like you. Everyone wants to be loved, supported & feel good about themselves.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty.


    Have you listened to any of Bahni Turpin???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - I try to find anything she has narrated & listen to it. I love her voice!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Sometimes you CAN have your cake & eat it too"

    Velva Jean Hart, the fiercely independent heroine of Jennifer Niven's spectacular debut novel, Velva Jean Learns to Drive, returns in a captivating adventure that literally sends her soaring. Bristling at the limitations faced by a woman in rural Appalachia and fueled by the memory of her late Mama telling her to "live out there," Velva Jean hits the road to pursue her dream of singing at the Grand Ole Opry. But after a string of auditions, she begins to lose hope - until her brother pays her a surprise visit and treats Velva Jean to a flying lesson that ignites a brand-new dream....

    Amazon Customer says: "VJ Drives Better Than She Flies"
    "Velva Jean is still a likeable character."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator.


    If you???ve listened to books by Jennifer Niven before, how does this one compare?

    I loved Velva Jean learns to drive. I think it is a better story - AND - the narrator is much better. Jennifer Nivens is a natural at narrating. Unfortunately Emily Durante cannot hold a candle to her.

    Story
    (1720)

    Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering Society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again....Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken, and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks.

    Cathy says: "superbly written mystery"
    "excellent"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The reader is excellent with the right amount of Brittish accent - not overdone at all. The story is wonderful but the woman that reads really makes it excellent. A lovely time and place to slip into.
