Publisher's Summary

"Thank goodness you're such a plain child. You'll have to rely on your wits." So went the words of Grandma Bebe. And for all of my growing-up years, I scoffed at the beauty of my sister and what I saw as her meaningless existence.

"But my wits hadn't served me well in this instance, for here I was, in jail. And while I could have seen it as carrying on the family tradition (Grandma Bebe landed in jail for her support of Prohibition), the truth is, my reasons for being here would probably break her heart.

"So how did I end up becoming a criminal? I've been pondering that question all night. Perhaps the best way to search for an answer is to start at the very beginning."

    "Good story but annoying performance"
    Would you try another book from Lynn Austin and/or Pam Turlow?

    Lynn Austin- yes, Pam Turlow- no


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the characters, but it was very hard to think about how they SHOULD have sounded with the narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She used a sickening sweet, melodramatic & child like voice that just irritated throughout a good story.


    Do you think Though Waters Roar needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The performance was so bad that I stopped and started the reading several times over many weeks. I am currently forcing myself past the last half.


    Any additional comments?

    Such a shame, I usually enjoy Lynn Austin's books & have listened to many titles before.
