The lovers’ solitude is interrupted by a world in the throes of massive upheaval that threatens to tear them apart, along with all they cherish.

    "A Poignant Coming of Age Love Story"
    If you could sum up Adé in three words, what would they be?

    Poignant Love Story


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall story was beautiful. I'm glad that it ended the way that it did. I think any other ending would have been forced.


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

    I have not, but I would love to hear her perform other books.
