Audible Editor Reviews

This old-fashioned romance by E. Jean Beres begins with a meet-cute in a grocery store between two senior citizens, Nettie and Hugh. As they become better acquainted, they begin to realize that they share some extraordinary circumstances, including startling coincidences regarding their late spouses and their adult children. Aaron Tucker handles the expository prose (and the role of Hugh) with a warm baritone, while Gale Van Cott imbues Nettie with a pervasive sweetness; both actors bring a remarkable tenderness to Nettie and Hugh's relationship. Dream House is a sweet yarn of late-blossoming love.

Publisher's Summary

While Nettie is shopping at the market, her cart collides with another cart pushed by a nice-looking man. A week goes by, and she runs into the same man at the post office. They get acquainted and learn their deceased spouses are buried in the same cemetery. They also learn from each other that their children want them to sell their houses and move in with them.

Love starts to take hold. They don’t want to move in with their children and give up their independence. Their love for each other grows deeper. They decide to marry. The next step is telling their children, who have already mapped out the rest of their lives.

    "Dream House"

    Light, interesting story of widow and widower in their 60's who meet in supermarket. The main thing that bothered me was the voice of the woman, which would have appropriate for a woman in her 80's or 90's, not early 60's.

    Story
    "Tea with sugar please"

    This story about two older people who meet and fall in love is full of syrup and warm fuzzies. I loved that this book was about mature people. They fall in love too, but they were flat characters and had no depth or spice. If I had bought the book it would have been read in less than an hour.

    Story
    "Loved this story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dream House to be better than the print version?

    In think all audio is better because I don't like to read. Concentrating is difficult for me when reading, so I do all audio books, even my Bible. I like to read along with the audio, if that is available.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Love isn't just for the young.


    Any additional comments?

    As a Christian, I enjoyed listening to a book that was wholesome, inspiring, and as a senior widow, gives me hope for love in my future.

    Story
    "Dream House Review"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It could have been a little more


    Would you recommend Dream House to your friends? Why or why not?

    If my friend were looking for a short, uplifting story, I might recommend it.


    Do you think Dream House needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think a follow-up book is needed. A sequel(s) could be created by continuing to delve into the lives of the main characters' children and grandchildren and showing the families melding together into one big family.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a nice, short read. It was shorter than the books I am used to, but a good way to introduce myself to using my new kindle.

    "Not what I was looking for."

    Not a badly written story but definitely not what I was looking for. While the relational context between the two primary characters might qualify as 'romance' the plot and story line is more related to demographic and sociological exploration of generational implications and mores. .
