This is the third and absolute best book I've read by Ann Patchett, in my opinion. She uses and combines words in such an amazing way! We are quickly pulled into the lives of these characters and this unique and amazing story. I give it top honors and I hated to see it end! Until this listen, I was not aware that one of my favorite actresses, Hope Davis, narrates audios, but she will now become one of my go-to narrators...she's terrific and never sounds like she is reading the story. I will hope for a sequel!
This reader is a favorite of mine - she can dramatize the story so that she never seems like a reader and adds an etherial quality to a very good story of a family history. I hated to reach the end.
