Lovely gift to listen to during the holidays. Everyone should have a listen; to this audio book and to the people around them during the holidays. Thank you Audible and David Isay.
Thank you Audible for this beautiful collection of stories. I found it very moving and well timed- I listened to it while baking pumpkin pies in preparation for Thanksgiving. It made for a lovely prelude to the holidays and spending time with loved ones. Thank you!
avoiding road rage one book at a time...
Audible gave this book to me as a free gift. I check out these free offerings with a heavy dose of 'doubt I'll listen to the whole book'. So, imagine my surprise when I became completely engrossed by these treasured stories told first-hand by their owners, ranging from beautiful to heart-wrenching and poignant. I drove to my destination alternating between hearty laughs and uncontrollable tears streaking my cheeks. I made myself late for my dinner date because I had to sit in the car to finish. I listened again on the return trip and bookmarked a story to share with my husband when I got home. Every remarkable story is about love, either shared, lost or its uncertain future. Wow. Just wow.
I loved listening to real people tell real stories. I am so inspired by the human spirit and love to connect with people.
I might not have chosen this myself but it was a gift, and it turned out to be a beautiful gift indeed. What a touching glimpse into people's lives.
I didn't know what to expect with this since I always listen to fiction. But this was a fantastic collection. I found myself wishing it was longer.
All the story tellers have their unique sweetness, truth and sincerity - the willingness to share and bare what they felt was real to them was apparent.
I have always liked these performances. I can't say
All of the above. These characters pull you in immediately and you feel an intimate connection to them.
I've listened to this twice. What a beautiful Thanksgiving gift.Thank you Audible. This is lovely!
I reccommend this book as a great fun listen. I also hope it inspires those who listen to write and give their own stories to their loved ones.
All the stories were my favorites
An idea to share your history with your loved ones
I loved the uniqueness of every single story
To listen is an act of LOVE!
Most of the stories brought tears to my eyes. Also smiles. They were all touching sweet stories and I would love to hear more!
Ever since a childhood hiding under the covers of my bed with a flashlight... The quest for the next adventure continues unabated.
Yes; it's a quick read and a great idea for anyone to do to capture family history, perspective, and complex relationships.
Bringing generations together
