Powerful story. I listened to the audio of this, very well done. It is not an easy story to listen to, but beautiful all the same. The way Kristin Hannah tells the story both in the present day and back to Stalin's time works seamlessly. In the telling of the story love and redemption eventually are born. But before that great pain and loss. Sometimes almost too unbearable to hear. Recommend the listen.
This is the second book I have listened to by Liane Moriarty and read by Caroline Lee. The narrator does an excellent job and really enhances the book. Always a plus when that happens. I liked the twists and turns in the plot and imagine if this really did happen.
I accidentally read Swan Point, so now I am going back to start at the beginning. Anyone who has rethought life choices in their forties will appreciate this series. Small town community and strong friendships between women. Supportive of each other. Happy to have used a credit. Well narrated.
I really enjoyed this book, and will certainly ready more by Mary Alice Monroe. Greed and power versus faith, love and trust. Sandra Burr as usual does an excellent narration.
I have had this audio for awhile and finally got around to listening to it. I really enjoyed it. One of those great family oriented contemporary stories, that I know I just want to keep listening to, to catch up with the family. Loved the plot, the characters and the narrator did a fabulous jobe.
I really enjoyed this book and listened to it over a few days once I got going. I purchased this on audible when it was published but never got around to it. I saw a few negative reviews early on, and then sort of lost the drive to listen to it.
Goes to show I should never take too much notice of what others say. This book was a very pleasant listen, with varying amounts of tension in it to keep me interested.
I liked the narrator, she enhanced this story, I liked the way she read and phrased the sentences, where she put emphasis. Awesome work and I would listen to another one by her in a heartbeat.
I really loved this story, the first part while Clare and Roan are children, the second part as adults. It is about family - the joys and failings. Wonderful old people, amazing young members of family.
This is 9th in the series, and I have enjoyed them all and loved Sonnet's story with a catch up on Nina her Mum as well.While this is 'romance' it is more women's fiction and a young person finding her real self.It begins and ends with a wedding, all very satisfying.While this is a series book, it can easily be read by itself, the series just gives backgroound knowledge of some of the minor characters to the reader who has read them all. No big deal.Joyce Bean does an excellent narration.
A little too long, the author could have edited some of the material out, it reminded me of a Danielle Steele saga. Narrator was very good and all in all it was a worthwhile listen.
Great listening, narrator did excellent job. Didn't like the double story at the beginning but perservered and pleased that I did.
If you have read the previous books in the series then listen to this one. If you are slightly older then read it - probably for those in their 40's onwards. If you are looking for something different than gentle loving relationships and bonds between friends and family, forget it.
