    Story
    "Beautifully written"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Henry and Rachel to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the character voices made the story.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Very sad story about a woman who couldn't love or express her love for others as a result of tragedies in her own life.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Cummings and Joyce Bean ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


    Who was the most memorable character of Henry and Rachel and why?

    Rachael because she so wanted to please everyone, but couldn't express her feelings. Because of this she was a very lonely person.
