First BD novel I have read, good story line, some nice surprises. I enjoyed how she developed the characters, showed a understanding of the complexity of families and how the past can repeat itself in next generations.
I really enjoyed Elin's approach to this story, the characters were uniquely interwoven with each other, and the ending was great. A very creative approach. Very open ended in what would unfold for each of them, but not in a way to set up a sequel or series, just great writing style. It was fun to see what my mind wanted to do with the characters. I was delighted to be brought into the story that way. The "romance" of the Island & "fine dining/wine" was wonderfully unfolded in the story line.
easy listen, enough intellectual substance to keep you interested. I loved her "of course this is the way it is" to the vampire topic.
What a journey, the author weaves a tale that goes thru our humanity in creative intimate encounters. I loved it, this is one i would listen to again, just to relish the depth of it.
Author did a great job of delivering a fully formed story, all the characters have real weight as it unfolds. The transexual subject is a very minor part of a good mystery. The ending is perfect and a surprise!
Excellent, very well written. The POW camp chapters were very difficult to hear in that the reality of what happened was so inhumane and brutal.
The story was great in the facts about birds, the rest of the story was a bit slow... a potentially great story with a little tighter edit.
A fun listen, similar to the Stephanie Plum novels, but can stand on its own merit. I enjoyed it enough to listen to more of the series.
the journey of mothers and daughters, and our expectations, what we think it should be, and the beauty and peace of embracing it how it is.
Susan Bennett did excellent narration!!
Hilderbrand takes on framing the difficulties of teens in relationship to the not so perfect world of adults. Extremely well articulated. The story line was excellent. The ending of the story was very realistic, as in life, it always turns out... just not exactly as our expectations .
I read this series years ago when they first came out. I loved them then and its pure joy to listen again. Barbara Rosenblat's performance is the best. She captures the charters perfectly. She adds the best tonal drama as needed. I am very happy that audible has picked up this series and I intend to listen to them all!
