What the Critics Say

"This tense and exciting thriller is more than a fabulous read; it has an underlying message about the place of religion within a marriage. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

    "Great story, terrible narrator..."

    I first read this book about 8 years ago when I received the series as a gift from my mother. Terri Blackstock is an excellent writer and, being from a small town in Louisiana myself, does a great job capturing the dynamics and traditions of living in that area of the country. The problem with the audiobook rests solely on the back of the terrible narrator. I don't know where the producers found this guy, but he has obviously done no research whatsoever. He mispronounces a lot of the names and his "Cajun" accent is absolutely atrocious. I work in theatre and when actors do a play or movie that involves speaking in a particular dialect, it takes days of research and rehearsal to make sure they are representing it correctly. Clearly, that was not the case here since whoever this man is he equates Cajun with French. It would have been better if he'd done no accent at all instead of the distorted French accent. He made listening to a great story cringe-worthy. It's a shame that producers don't require more effort and knowledge from their narrators.
