If you have ever had a "friend of the heart" and lost her, this book will inspire you, bring you to tears and laughter. Grace, although damaged is never pathetic. She's strong and caring. The cast of characters is fascinating, and the story weaves together like a seemless tapestry (purple prose)
I loved the deep southern voice of the narrator who brought these people to life. One of the most touching books I've listened to in a long time.
I am unable to pick one thing about this book. I loved all of the characters, the narration, and the sweet story. I laughed aloud throughout, and cried in places.
Not sure if I am able to compare this book to any other. It's a book that stands alone, in it's story, characters, and narration.
I've never listened or bought any of Joshilyn's books before, but now have all of her books in my wish list.
I listened to this book twice. The first time in one sitting which is something I rarely do.
This a sweet compelling story about the triumph of three outstanding Southern women. A fabulous listen.
I would only recommend it in written form. The narrator totally distracted from the story.
He made Banks sound (to quote my Yorkshire Dad) A pompous pratt. Stilted nasal narration, and no resemblence to either a Yorkshire or southern dialect. The narration waa so annoying that it spolied the whole book.
I note the same narrator has been used in another couple of Peter Robinson's books. I shall buy them to read as I cannot listen to this narrator "murder" another good book.
Yes, as I feel the story and narration give a great picture of the wild and wonderful Yorkshire Dales and area.
A complicated thriller with many twists and a great ending.
Having lived in Yorkshire many years ago, although I was not born in Yorkshire, and have lived in Canada for over 40 years. I loved his spot on Yorkshire accent, plus the variety of dialogues, melodic voice. I can visualise Inspector Banks vividly, and the many of the Yorkshire fellows I nursed during my training in Bradford Yorkshire.
Peter Robinson's descriptions of the social problems are handled very well.
The great Yorkshire accent, and description of the countryside and cities brought back many happy memories of my father, who was a Yorkshireman to his core, and took me on many hikes over his beloved moors.
I have read (and listened) to all the Inspector Bank's series,and enjoy James Langton's narrations very much.
