I enjoyed the first book in the series "The Wanderer", so I purchased the 2nd book. I must be old fashioned, but a book with the main characters being parents of teenagers conceived at age 16 outside of marriage, is not necessarily my idea of a good book. But I could deal with that until their 16 year old girls are having sex and pregnancy scares in high school. Everyone is having sex without being married. The story line is ok, but, As I said I am old fashioned so I will be requesting my credit back.
I like that Carr, in addition to writing interesting characters and great sense of place, also costs to tackle difficult emotional issues like teenage pregnancy and bullying. She does so thoughtfulness and sensitivity.
I love the characters that Robyn Carr creates. I'm glad in this series, new people are added, but you don't lose touch with other one, and what's happening in their lives.
Enjoyed the continued story. It's easy to get caught up in the lives of the thunder point residents. Carr does a good job of creating characters you can relate to; and Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator. Next up for me--"the hero" the next in the series!
Yes, it's a wonderful story of people who become very much a part of me while i listen. Again in a small town where everyone seems to know each other's business but the characters involved. Captivating!
Mac and Grace-both very good characters with history of families but haven't thought about dating. They are super great parents with charming personalities.
Therese Plummer is close to number one in all narrations I've heard. She's gifted! Always superb.
It held my interest and I listened as much as I could each day without missing anything.
Read this series in order. If you like small towns, people of long ago this series is for you. I found it delightful. I have now finished all that has been written including book 6.
Yes definitely.Lovely book and in time I would revisit it again.
I would compare the whole Thunder Point series to Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series.
I can't say I prefer her to reading the book but I love listening to any books she has narrated. She is brilliant.
Yes. Usually I only listen when I am painting or crafting. With this book I wanted to keep on listening.
I am a 43 year old mother of 4, I have a great husband and I am a nurse. I love to spend time with my family and ride atv's. Romance and humerous books are my favorite and I am currently listening to a lot of amish romance books.
All of Robyn Carrs books are great and the way all the characters fit and the way Robyn does not leave any loose ends is perfect!
I can't say I have just one favorite....all of Robyn's characters are what small towns shoule be made of
Of course. I have been listening to Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer for years and will continue; I love the combination. This book and series just isn't as dynamic as her other series such as Virgin River, etc.
No. She does a great job.
Please Ms. Carr pick up the pace.
