Worth the listen!
Stands on it's own. Blends historical fact with a process of coming to terms with marriage, albeit reluctantly.
She narrated her own process.
Not appropriate for a film.
Anyone who still believes the political arguments about marriage can learn the truth in this well researched book.
This book is helpful to understand how the rights of slaves and women's rights have been an ongoing issue in our country, and how certain brave people spearheaded both issues.
The narration was wonderful.
Both equally. The voice of slave and the voice of the one who came to oppose the institution of slavery are both performed impeccably.
Not necessarily, but I did because I was on a long road trip.
Anything by Sue Monk Kidd is wonderful.
I am in the same age group as the author yet have lived a very different life. This opened up my experience to the rock music scene and the art world that I had mostly ignored while having babies and dealing with survival.
There were so many . . . moments of the great love between the author and Robert Mapplethorpe were touching and inspiring and although they parted ways as a couple, their love for each other stayed strong and solid. This book is a tribute to that love and Patti made it a beautiful one.
I loved both Patti and Robert equally for the truth in their work and staying true to it while supporting each other in the best type of friendship imaginable.
The moment Patti and Robert had to say goodbye when he was dying of AIDS was particularly moving, but there were many others.
I loved experiencing this time of my life in a whole new way. Patti was acquainted with so many famous musicians and artists of the era and helped me feel like I had met them as well.
No, there are too many amazing books to listen to.
This story rang true for me on many levels. How we can live with someone and really not know them, mostly because they do not know themselves and we do not know ourselves. And how we are all capable of so much more than we realize, and capable of surprising ourselves in the process of learning that.
I love a British accent.
Harold and his journey of self discovery and endurance and letting go.
This is a lovely book, especially for those with relationship difficulties.
This book tells the truth very clearly and every time you listen you are reminded again that YOU are not the one who is listening or experiencing your life; YOU are the one observing it all. If we can step back into that truth and really untether from the temporal world and just flow from our Reality, which is only Spirit or Soul, complete peace and joy is what remains.
Spiritual Liberation by Michael Bernard Beckwith is the one I listened to recently.
Monitoring my thoughts and emotions is the key; then remind myself to let go of the thoughts and just ALLOW things to flow and they will pass.
Not to be listened to just once.
