Publisher's Summary

Decades ago, as Nazi planes dominated the sky, Lily Verner made a terrible choice. She's tried to forget, but now an unexpected event pulls her back to the 1940s British countryside. She finds herself remembering the brilliant colors of the silk she helped to weave at her family's mill, the relentless pressure of the worsening war, and the kind of heartbreaking loss that stops time.

In this evocative novel of love and consequences, Lily finally confronts the disastrous decision that has haunted her all these years. The Last Telegram uncovers the surprising truth about how the stories we weave about our lives are threaded with truth, guilt, and forgiveness.

    "Horrible voice of reader"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Perhaps, if one read it. The voice was not tenable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The breathless, whisper-like quality of the reader was horrible. I tried to listen to the book, but found myself unable to tolerate. I have given up.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to try to get a refund.

    "Nice listen"

    A WWII story set against the backdrop of the silk industry, this was a story I really enjoyed listening to. (I would have come up with a better title, however.) My only complaint is that the narrator has a rather odd cadence to her voice; at first I didn't think I could listen to it, but the story was so good that I just learned to adjust.

    "Uuugghhhh"

    I couldn't even get through the first chapter. The performer is TERRIBLE. Don't even bother listening. Just read it.
