I love audio books. I am an avid reader/listener in my car and sometimes I just sit in a park or pool and let the escape begin with Audible

    In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth. They’re driving to Florida for Ruth’s 50th high school reunion. A long-time widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She’s heard he’s alone, too…and, well, she’s curious. Maybe even hopeful. Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant – her children’s father – wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed.

    With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Dark Witch the most enjoyable?

    I found myself living the moments with the reader.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ionna - an American that transplanted herself to her family's heritage in Ireland. Mostly it was the way she fell in love with the country and became one with it.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just the way the entire book brought out the importance of family love and sticking together.

    Cant wait for Book Three to come out.

    Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

    What did you like best about Summer on Blossom Street? What did you like least?

    I didnt want to miss out on the story but the narrator was horrible. She should stick to her radio show which she is excellent at. I cant tell you the number of times I turned off the book to take a break from the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ann Marie


    What didn’t you like about Delilah’s performance?

    Her voice is too harsh and there was no distintion between the story and the speaking parts.
    She just read the book to me.


    Could you see Summer on Blossom Street being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No clue


    Any additional comments?

    Keep this series going.
