"One doesn't read Siddons's books; one dwells in them....[Hers] are not characters in a novel, but people living and dying, loving and hating, hungering and scheming in a world made real." (Chicago Tribune)
I love the stories by Anna Rivers Siddons. I feel as if I know her
Characters She breathes life into them and the narrator is excellent. The only negative about the Audible version is the music between chapters - not only not necessary but ruins the flow of the story.
I liked the story. Sometimes made me wish I could escape to a totally different life. I would recommend this to other older women who have had be upended at one time in their life or another. I laughed, shed a few tears and reflected on my own life now and again. A quick 'read', loved the narrator . What I did not care for was the loud harsh music blared at the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. Very annoying
I love Anne Rivers Siddons novels as a rule and this one was no exception. I laughed, I cried and was totally invested in these characters.
The narrator was wonderful and captured all the voices and personalities extremely well.
The only pet peeve I have with the recording is the music, it became a little annoying, but otherwise I absolutely enjoyed this book,
I highly recommend it to everyone! Enjoy!
I have heard this book before and loved it just as much the second time. The characters are believable and loveable and I shall miss them. I only wish there was a sequel. It is a story of a woman whose life is suddenly devastated, her journey for fulfillment, and those relationships she acquired along the way. The reader does a great job and adds to the personality of the characters.
