I have been a fan of Laurie King, but this story was a little bit too over the top graphic for me. Yes, what war and trauma do to people has a profound effect on them... but there were places where it was traumatic just to listen to it. I liked the narrator, though... well presented story.
Hero at large.
I enjoyed the plot as it was a continuation of "Folly" but also stood on it's own. The end did have me a bit concerned!
I enjoyed both the history in Vietnam and the relationship between Allen and Jerry. True family devotion even when the years have gone by.
You are not alone.
I enjoy many of Laurie R King's books, this series was one of them. She brings bravery and vulnerability to the table, often within the same character.
I have listened to this book several times over the years. The characters come alive in this book and the story is wonderful. It reveals an insight into a trauma survivor's soul.
Many moments moved me.
I would like to read more Carmichael stories.
Laurie King has become one of my automatic listens
Folly one of her best and great narration by Frank Muller
