    When Helen Honeycutt falls in love with Emmet Justice, a charismatic television journalist who has recently lost his wife in a tragic accident, their sudden marriage creates a rift between her new husband and his oldest friends, who resent Helen's intrusion into their tightly knit circle. Hoping to mend fences, the newlyweds join the group for a summer at his late wife's family home in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

    If you could sum up Moonrise in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing southern story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed both Helen and Willa as they came from two very different worlds. It was nice to have the variety of characters throughout the book.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed that this book had three different readers, as it gave variety to the story that matched the various characters. I preferred the readers doing Helen and Willa. In fact, I enjoy listening to Jennifer James Bradshaw's readings and seek out audiobooks she has read. She always does a great job with a variety of character voices (hear her Willow Springs reading). Willa's character was well done also with the Appalachian/Scottish accent. My least favorite was the Tanzy reader, but I chose to use the 1.5 speed function on the audible app to get through her parts more quickly so it wasn't a big deal.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I never have that much time in my life, so probably not! But, I do typically listen to two 40 minute stretches a day during my commute to and from work.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an enjoyable story and was enhanced by the Helen and Willa narrators.
