This is a charming book which is even more touching when you hear the story. I loved it!
For me, the story of the author's dog, Smokey, who trusted her as she led him through a storm. This complete faith and devotion parallels the author's journey and trust through the storms experienced during her own lifetime.
Giving the book a voice gives it an extra texture. Her narrative involves you in the story. You feel as if you are involved in a conversation, not listening to a story.
“The fact is, I was born an incurable dreamer, which is in and of itself fundamentally rebellious. No status quo for me. Waiting just around the next corner was something better, I was certain of it.” I was immersed in the story from this point at the beginning of the book.
Confessions of an Instinctively Mutinous Baby Boomer is a book of universal truths told from the heart of a woman who has faced down many adversities through her faith in God and her belief in herself. Ms. Roberts has taken the lessons she learned in the process and woven them into a compelling narrative that keeps you flipping pages as if you were reading a best selling thriller.
Actually it IS a bit of a thriller and the fact that it's all true gives it a powerful punch. The ring of truth is very loud, especially the chapters recounting her time spent with the men and women of America's Armed Services across the globe while producing the long-running play "Letters From the Front."
For the audiobook, Ms. Roberts has wisely chosen the highly accomplished actor who played the lead role in the play for several years, Della Cole. Perhaps because Ms. Cole was there when many of the events described in the book took place, her reading of the book is both lively and heartfelt. Having spent many years on the stage, her performance is captivating.
This is the perfect drive-time audiobook. Highly recommended.
