Late Bloomer

Twenty years have past since the incident involving six lonely children at a secret playground in Indigo Valley, Pennsylavania which left the town bully dead and 10-year-old Cady Jordan seriously injured.

While Cady has grown into attractive, intelligent, but overly cautious young woman, she has no memory of her childhood tragedy.

Publisher's Summary

Twenty years have past since the incident involving six lonely children at a secret playground in Indigo Valley, Pennsylavania, which left the town bully dead and 10-year-old Cady Jordan seriously injured. Now Cady has returned to the valley to care for her ailing grandmother Lola, the only person Cady has ever truly loved.

While Cady has grown into attractive, intelligent, but overly cautious young woman, she has no memory of her childhood tragedy. Lola desperately wants to see Cady embrace life and find the happiness she deserves so she pushes her granddaughter to "remember".

As Cady reacquaints herself with her old friends, she begins to recalls bits and pieces of what happened that fateful day. She also discovers a new zest for life and falls in love for the first time. But her friends don't want her to remember. If the truth comes out, their safe and secure lives might be ruined forever. Which of them will do what is best for Cady and acknowledge the truth, and which of them will betray her again and do what is best for themselves?

With vibrant, complex characters and her distinctive blend of humor and poignancy, Fern Michaels is at the peak of her storytelling abilities. Late Bloomer takes listeners on the young woman's journey of self-discovery that is exciting, heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant.

    Story
    "Great story, narrator not so good!!"
    Where does Late Bloomer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a little far-fetched, but I enjoyed it.


    What other book might you compare Late Bloomer to and why?

    I always get a kick out of Fern Michaels books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Margot Dionne’s performances?

    I was distracted by her lip smacking so no thanks!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at some points and cried for all of the lost years.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love a sequal.
