Right from the very first few sentences I was drawn into this story,and it held me throughout.It was a very intense story,but handled with plenty of hope ,and by the last hour(chapter) I almost had to pull over I was so involved in what was happening.This was the second book I've read by this author(The Lost Hours)and I will definately be listening (reading)more.
I love Karen White and I have read all of her books. I was saving "The Memory of Water" for those times when I couldn't find something to read or when I needed to spend a credit on something that I knew woud be a for sure would be great. This book is not it. The storyline was dry and boring. I could not like anybody in this story. The sisters really needed to never see each other and I did not like the "replacement" wife, mother. The narriator's voice wore on my nerves.
I like historical, southern books - southern accents, antiques - The Ole' West, Ghost Towns, Victorian Era, Southern Humor!!
I listened to this whole book. It's about two sisters who are apart for years and end up in the same town together. I will not listen again, it was a little slow, and I had trouble listening to the entire book. I do not regret the purchase, but prefer books that have a little more drama so-to-speak and books that keep me wanting to jump in the car to turn on my iPod asap!! I have thoroughly enjoyed all other Karen White books!
I found this book very boring. The narration was very dull; it was difficult figuring out the different characters in the story. Only listen to part 1 -- I could not finish it.
