This book is pretty typical for the author. Just about the entertainment level I was looking for. However, I am EXTREMELY, frustrated by the narrator's mispronunciation of Edisto...it is the name of real river and an island in SC. I don't understand why the narrator was not corrected on this. It is pronounced ED ist o (emphasis on first syllable). This was just a distraction for me throughout the book. I've experienced this with other regional books too. Don't understand why the authors don't review it.
I prefer Robin Miles performance for Dot Frank books, but the most disappointing part is the book is abridged. Unfortunately, I missed that fact upon purchase; won't make that mistake again.
The story was great. Too bad the performer or producer didn't take the time to learn the difference in Southern accents or at a minimum, learn the correct pronunciation of the Edisto considering its prominence in the story.
I love suspense and mysteries. I am in a book club and sometimes feel I have to read a book suggested and I want to read something else.
I loved this book. But somehow got the abridged version. Since I needed for a book club discussion I had to buy another whole book from Amazon. Make sure you're okay with abridged. I found I missed a lot.
There were many different twists about Miss Levine and Millie left out of the story. The original story was much better than the audible version!
Another can put it down novel by Dorothea Benton frank . It's dripping with the lowcountry SC charm and grace !
Definately. It's such a true to life story
Finding out who was to blame
Her voice is so soothing and versital
The discovery of their love.
