    Story
    "Where was her editor?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Put the word "mash" on the author's banned word list.. Another author, whose books I thoroughly enjoy, overuses the phrase "tucked into dinner". And he only uses it a few times per book. This author found ways to use 'mash' in every chaper, her favorite being, "mashed her lips together." After her third use of this word/phrase, it was like a fingernail scratching on a chalkboard.On a more serious note, has anyone noticed that her male characters are either tyrants or weaklings? I found her use of flashbacks slowed down the story. I became impatient with their length. Perhaps I would have found them more interesting if I knew nothing about World War 1.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not listen to this book expecting a masterpiece. The story sounded sweet. I actually liked the unrelenting nastiness of the two grandfathers, but they should have been balanced by at least one strong and compassionate male character.This book was disappointing.
