Absolutely. I would for my friends who love peaceful journeys, who enjoy meadering down the path to see what each day brings. This book was a pleasure.
Jan Karon's Mitford Series. They are similar in they are about small town life, the characters who live, love, laugh, and pass into and out of your life. These are the type of books that refuel me.
One that made me laugh outloud was the scene at the football games Halftime activies in front of the visiting dignitaries Elizabeth Taylor and her husband, Senate hopeful, John Warner.
Yes, and I leave that to the reader/listener to decide for themselves. I don't want to give anything away.
Yes, I was very concerned with the author being the narrator. In most cases I have found that doesn't work, but I wanted this book quite a lot so I gave in. Adriana Trigiani has won me over. She is perfect for the part. She IS the book. In fact, I was so please with this book & narrator I imediately purchased the next two in the series. I would have purchased the 4th but I ran out of credits.Thank you Adriana Trigiani for an absolutely delightful stroll through Big Stone Gap, a place I'd love to live.
No. People make fun of the teen series - Twilight - for the female character being so love sick. Well, to have the adult, male lead, (a professor at that) be so besotted be puts lives in danger is just nauseating.
Yes, I have really enjoyed the books of his I have read. This one was good in so many ways, but a love sick, educated male is off putting. I ended up despising the lead chapter.
Didn't really have one.
Yes, to watch TV and take a break from an overload of - you can't call this romance because that type of love is in no way romantic.
Real life nightmare
I would prefer not to say as I don't want to spoil it for others
Yes, I have and I have thoroughly enjoyed all his work.
Jacob's mother. Again I don't want to give the reason as it would be a spoiler.
This was a very good book, with twists and turns and an unexpected ending. I will certainly watch for more books by this author.
Best of all was Amanda Ronconi. Her voice is amazing!
It had such potential, the story line was taking a new path in the witch genre. But the story became disjointed and fizzled in the end.
Every character. This woman opens her mouth and I listen.
I did laugh on several occasions. It helps to have a narrator that knows how to deliver a line.
I will read this author again. In fact, I like the premise of this book and would give a sequel a try. I like the life long friendship of the girls, the old home owned by Olivia, Elizabeth and her CCE's Waffled House, etc. Of course, it needs to be narrated by Ms. Ronconi
