"A gripping, emotional tale you'll want to read in one sitting." (New York Times best-selling author, Julia London)
The story had me predicting the outcome from the get go although I was not correct a lot of the time! I enjoyed the story and the narrator. I can't wait to read/ listen to more of her books!
You definitely need some tissues for this book. There were a few parts of the book that made me cringe. I am usually an exclusive Christian books reader and the title misled me. I think the in depth and too detailed mother daughter talk turned me away from enjoying the book more.
It was ok. Satisfactory enough.
Jennifer O'Donnell was EXCELLENT. Very talented.
Yes. A few times. I literally cried.
This story was wonderful! Very true to life with joy and sorrow. A story of lost love and new beginnings.
The narrator was good but sometimes a bit annoying in her attempt to express different characters. However , her reading was clear and concise .
All in all, the book was pleasurable and I am so glad I listened to it,
I had trouble with the start of this book as it hit a little to close, having had a very seriously ill grandchild. But I stuck with it and loved how things were revealed.
I kept forgetting this was a novel. If you want to get lost in a good book, this one is perfect. It'll have you in tears, laughing and appreciating the beauty of life, love and family.
Couldn't put it down! Bittersweet with sad & happy tears.. I will read her other books too! Loved the Narrator's enthusiastic reading, easy to listen to & follow along with, kudos! :)
New to audible - enjoy a variety of authors from Chick Lit/Romance to Biographies and interesting personal stories! Nice to meet you .. :)
Pain that turned into healing, redemption, forgiveness ..all told by the most awesome story teller.
The healing power of forgiveness theme ...
It was as if she was there and related the events to me with voice inflection and expressive tones ... she was definitely a value add!
