Crazy About Cairns
This well-read story is the tale of 3 generations of women. Written with today's issues at the core, each woman tells her story from the media that relects her age.
A story of new love, lost love and found love, this book is a good time.
What a great story about mother-daughter relationships. I really enjoyed all of the characters (grandmother, mother, daughter, all their boyfriends.) The author captured the messy family, good and bad, sadness and new love. This is what some would call a "sleeper" but I enjoyed it!
I have started to purchase this book several times over the last year or so, but something else would always some along, that I would choose instead. Well, last month it was on sale, so I thought, now is the time. I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed the book. If you are a mother wife or daughter, or espically all three, you will love this book. Don't wait like I did, get this book, you will be glade you did.
This was a wonderful book to listen to. It was a view of life from every age as I listened to a teenager, her mother and grandmother. What fun to hear the differences and remember those years. Can't imagine any one not liking this one.
Average story, but painfully read by three different readers/actors. The mix of readers did not work well, and it turned what might have been a light, predictable story into one painfully long and irritating.
