It is obvious the narrator has not researched the proper way to pronounce places like Lafayette, foods like beignets, and Chi ( as in Chi Omega), to name a few.
The book sounded as though it would be a good way to knit through a couple of hours, but the pedantic (can I use pedantic to describe a narrator? Oh, very well, plodding) style of the narrator allowed my brain to wander off between words. I would tick back into the sound of someone speaking and realize I had little idea of where the story had gotten to. Not to say the reader was in any way at fault; she pronounced well and had marvelous breath control and sound quality, but I apparently listen far faster than she announces, and after the first couple of hours, I gave it up as a Sisyphean task and took up an old favorite while finishing the hat. I'm tempted to check the paper version out of the library just to see if I was correct regarding the story line.
