The author was perfect in capturing the feelings and emotions of the family going through a wife finding out her husband is gay. This couldn't be a more perfect portrayal of overcoming the devastation and finding the strength to move on to a better place.
Avid Listener of audio books!
Yes, because with this storyline, I'm not sure the print edition would have held my attention because as I tell all of my friends, many of these books really come to life because of the narrators. And Patricia R. Floyd is one of my favorite narrators; she always knows how to bring a story to life. And that is why I prefer audio over reading because I enjoy the performances.
There were no areas that really moved me in anyway. I just felt that the book was interesting and held my attention because the way the author threaded the different situations together, made for an overall interesting story. I do not ever remember feeling bored or like I was ready for the book to end. I would recommend the book; did not feel like I wasted a credit.
Yes, I have listened to Patricia R. Floyd many times before and simply love her voice. She is an awesome performer. In fact, that is how I find other books because I look for books narrated by her. However, in this book, I could hear her swallowing and smacking her lips throughout the book as other individuals have stated. But, since I really enjoy her work, I barely noticed it as a distraction.
It was a predictable story because whenever the main character loses something in a relationship, they always gain it back in another way. I also find it interesting that when other single women in the book can't seem to find and keep a man, her girlfriend that already has someone always seems to find a man that is ready to commit.I felt the author could have done a better job at the conclusion of the story.
Also, character development was lacking. For instance, the character, Jet Jennings was mentioned throughout the book but I was never able to draw a clear picture of who he was. In many stories I have listened to in the past, I have found that some characters are developed so well, I felt I could actually reach out and touch them. In this book, I did not really feel like that.Sheridan and her son Christopher were the only ones in the book that I felt had a real presence because the author spent more time developing their characters based on how they responded to what was happening in the storyline.
USPS MAIL CARRIER, WALKING 6-8 MILES DAILY, AUDIO BOOKS MAKE ME ENJOY MY WORKDAY
just wasn't feeling the story, too drawn out for something that was obvious
love her as a narrator, story was whack
The author wrote a good book. The story was well paced, and the author did a good job developing the main character and her children, but more character development could have been done on the husband, whose decision has affected his family. Overall, the author does a good job showing how later life adult/parental decisions can impact on the entire family system. The author also does a good job demonstrating, through the characters, how faith helps each of them survive .
This story was just OK...I did finish it but have listened to much better...I had a hard time getting beyond the noises the narrator made. She was making rather gross mouth noises in between phrases...a slapping wet sound..very unusual I would say. It never really let up through the whole story....So, if you can get beyond that, you might give it a go. It did keep my attention which is more than I can say for some "chick lit" books I've read lately...
HAVEN'T READ THE PRINT ONLY LISTENED TO THE AUDIBLE.
I LOVE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BROCK AND SHERIDAN.
WHEN BROCK SHOWED UP TO SHERIDAN'S DOOR WITH A PACKAGE AND SHE GOES OFF ON HIM, THEN SOON REALIZES WHAT SHE'S DONE.
GREAT BOOK, THE WHOLE SERIES WAS EXCEPTIONAL!!!
I felt emotional in a lot of parts of this book. I actually wanted the wife to be more angry in certain situations, due to her husband not understanding her feelings. There are a lot of good lessons that can be learned from this book. I would definitely listen to it again and recommend it to my friends.
