Although, it was a stand alone book, I wish I had started with the other books first, so I would know the characters. I like hearing about characters that the writer has already written about. Now I will go back read the first two. It was believable--enjoyed the relationship with the two main characters. But I wonder whether the majority of young folk that get themselves in the situation really have that much stamina to go out on their own--they did in this one. This wasn't my favorite performance by Joyce Bean, because I know I have enjoyed her more in other readings.
The first two books in the this series were great because of the story line and the narrator, Julia Gibson. I listened to this third book because I wanted to complete the series, but the narrator did not make it an easy listen. She is annoying and her character voices are dull.
I selected one of the books the Lakeshore series on a lark from my local library and have gone on to read/listen to the entire Lakeshore Chronicles series. It's and enjoyable series when you are looking for light, easy reading/listening.
The narrator drove me crazy during this book. I don't think it was intentional but I think she had an accent that kept coming out because it was not consistent. Towards the end of the book I sped up the narration and it helped too. I think she was also reading way to slow. I guess I'll be reading the rest of the books verses listening.
Rich development of the characters showing the depth of life decisions during crisis pregnancies. As I watch my own grandaughter laugh and play this author have me a chance to understand what life is like for her young parents. I highly recommend this book.
