    "Silver Girl is a Great Find"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this novel. It is a story about all the different types of love you have in your life (romantic, friendship, family) and all the ups and downs that come with it. To me, it really delved deep into the characters’ emotions. And, I thought the ending was exactly what it should be—happy without being terribly unrealistic. If you’re looking for something a little bit more meaningful than your average romance novel, this may be the audiobook you’re looking for.
    The narration wasn’t the best I’ve ever heard, but I thought it was still pretty good.

    Story
    "The ending made me cry...loved it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Silver Girl the most enjoyable?

    The readers were excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Meredith....watching her character grow over the sequence of events and her ability to accept what life threw at her with grace.


    Have you listened to any of Janet Metzger and Marianne Fraulo ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    To be honest, I don't know.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Bring a hankie!

    Story
    "Really enoyed this book"

    This book was my first audible listen and I really enjoyed it. I am a fan of Elin Hilderbrand and this book was not disappointing in the least. Taken out of recent headlines, the story presents from the point of view, not of the villian, but of Meredith, the spouse, and her childhood friend, now estranged, whom she calls on for help. This friend, Connie, is battling her own demons of grief and estrangement. The story switches back and forth between the two main characters. My only (small) disappointment was that it was occasionally difficult to differentiate which character was speaking becuase the narrators sounded very similar. Otherwise, this was a very good book.

    "Relaxing Beach Listen"

    Just wanted something not complicated to read on vacation to the beach. Kind of already new what the book was going to be about. Since the book was about the beach it was nice. Listening to the sounds of the beach and listing to this book it was great it all fit perfectly.

    "Could Not get Past Narration"

    The storyline of this book seemed interesting so I bought it. Should have listened to the sample beforehand. The narrator whistles her "s" and I could not get use to her rushed narration.

    "Mirror of Madoff Story"

    Great story. critics may say that that without Madoff, there is no story here. Not really fair. While the overall story is similar to the Madoff story, there are many good sub stories and good character development.

    "Hilderbrand missed the mark on this one"

    I have enjoyed many of Hilderbrand's books--always a great summer read. But I found this one a long, slow slog. It was tedious to say the least. The plot was almost non-existent, and what little there was, was predictable. Her use of flashbacks really didn't work well. Was glad to get to the end and move on to a better book.
