Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
I really love this series. While the abuse written in the story is not a happy story, the character is a wonderful strong black woman. I will be sad when the series ends. (At the time of this review, I'm on book four). Worth the chip! I also love the friendship she has with her BFF. Just a nice series overall.
I LOVED this book! Very entertaining. I couldnt stop listening to it! Very Dramatic with LOTS of supprises. It KEPT me wondering what would happen next. Gossip, Murder, Inner Healing, Restoration, Love, and FULL OF DRAMA! The characters and storyline was well developed. GREAT BOOK!
This is a story that was hard for me to pause and continue, later. Best of all, was the excellent job of the narrator. Her voice, with the Southern accent, and inflections, made me subconsciencely, nod my head in recognition. The actual story, was mind-boggling. And, until the story was nearly finished, I very frustrated with the lead chacerter. What happened to her at an early age; was sad. But, there was no justification for her to keep that terrible relationsip going when she was old enough to know better. I also loved the fact that the author did not stoop to allowing Annette to slim down to what most folks in this country, believes to be the ideal' size 6. Instead, as she grew up, she developed the self-confidence in herself that enbabled her to accept herself for who and what she was. It was a very enjoyable book and I look forward to Part 2.
Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
Yes, there were several parts that were terrible to listen through but it's a story that many little girls have and are going through.
I like when Annette and her mom finally move away from Florida.
Her voice was very good. Serious and sad when her voice needed to be and comical when needed.
this is my first introduction to this author. I enjoyed the story....loved the narrator. Looking forward to book 2
YES!! she ranks right up there with RC Bray.
The most enjoyable thing for me was the performance of the narrator. Denise Burse such a good story teller.
I liked the fact that certain things happened in the story that I didn't see coming.
Denise Burse was able to bring the different characters to life with her acting and voice over skills.
I was angry a lot in the beginning of the book because of abuse that Annette had to endure.
