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.
I 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.
Good book some parts hard to hear. Facing the reality of racism and the desperation of women especially black women in those days. Was a book I didn't want to put down.
The Upper Room. I love Mary Monroe, and the life she brings to her characters.
Where d I begin???........ There were too many pauses. I mean like, unnecessary pauses. In the middle of sentences!!! It was very annoying. Plus she swallowed so hard throughout the narration, it became distracting. Oh, and tripping over words. Misreading. etc. UGH I am so glad the pulled her after the 1st book. I don't want to hear her read ever again.
Not really. It was a good book, but nothing to keep me glued to the story
I read this entire series of books a few years book, and fell in love with the characters. I'm happy I can enjoy this series again (via Audible)
Love the whole series. real stories. details are beautifully and heartfelt written. not one disappointing chapter in any of them
