This book made me laugh, cry and relate. I felt it was well written and very engaging. I heard they were making a movie. I will be first in line to buy tickets. You will not be disappointed. And, the narrator was excellent. Happy Listening!
LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
I liked this book a lot but some parts of the book just dragged on. The story line was great and I could feel each characters personalities and struggles. I like the way the characters are their own people, reading this I felt like she was telling a story about something I had endured and each character reminded me of myself in a way. The book kind of dragged on in some spots, and the changes from the present to the past in some parts of the story were hard to decipher but I follwed the story with ease. This book inspired me to find out the history of my family and realize and finally understand that my family isn't the only one with deep dark secrets. This book has also opened my eyes to the meaning of TRUE LOVE and see that people will do anything to get what they want. I would love to read another book from these authors. I also think that the narrator did an amazing job and kept me wanting to find out more.
It was a very good story Della's finally telling her daughters about her life as a child was most important in having the family come together. Celeste was fortunate to finally acknowledge her pretentious life... I thought Della would let the Nikki and Celeste know that her mom Annie was a "successful caterer/ chef!!!
Loved the characters and the story. Touching but real. Characters very engaging. Narration excellent. I feel like moving to South Carolina. Made me think about a few things too in terms of why we do the things we do. Read this book.
"Fantastic, Re-reading already!"
Fantastic, Great story-line.
A real page turner. The story draws you in.
She reads well. Wasn't always sure which character was speaking at times, but a very small issue.
It's sad in places and had to get to the end to find out what was going on but I couldn't put it down.
Excellent read! Great writing. Would definitely read another book from these authors.
