    "Once you start, it's hard to put down."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoyed the story and it's characters. It reminded me of the stories that my parents shared with my brother & I of the struggles to survive in rural Alabama in the 1920's & 30's.


    What does Lynne Thigpen bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator gave the story extra depth. It was a very rich and warm experience.
