    "Fantastic Story and Narration"
    Would you listen to Trumpet again? Why?

    I would definitely listen again. I was easily able to connect with the main characters and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing them to life.


    What about Cathleen McCarron’s performance did you like?

    There were times when her narration felt so real and so raw that it brought me to tears.


    Who was the most memorable character of Trumpet and why?

    I loved Millie. I truly felt like she was sharing her love, her grief, and her memories with me. My heart broke for her at times.

    Story
    "Love, loss and some laughs."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trumpet to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I have the print edition but am currently hooked on all things audio.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Millie. I liked her honesty, the fact that what she and Joss had was no less real than any other couple


    Which character – as performed by Cathleen McCarron – was your favourite?

    Again it was Millie. Some heartbreakingly tender descriptions of her love for Joss.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If music be the food of love, play Jazz.


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book.
