I am losing my eyesight. Always been an avid reader but had to stop reading. So gave audio a try. Took me awhile; now I love listening best!
In My Dreams by Allen hooked me -- I'm officially an addict now. This book isn't the most profound I have listened to, but it is among the sweetest and most thoughtful. Some people need books to be exciting roller coasters, and sometimes that includes me. But sometimes I need to have a book that has heroes or heroines who are loyal, brave, loving, considerate... and where even in adversity, things work out in the end.
This is one of these books. After reading this book, I bought all of the other books by Allen. Read them all. It was good and I hope there will be more!
They can all come on over for supper! Addison has a way of finding the different within the ordinary person. We all are a bit different, we all have secrets, small or large, that change us and make us look more deeply at our life purpose.

A plot!! Finish the story!
No! Not a narrators voice.
This could be a great novel if it was finished. I was just getting into the story when it was over, with no point. I have read several Sarah Addison Allen books and loved them. All her other books are well written, great plots, interesting characters. This started out that way then abruptly ended. I'm glad this was not the first one I read or I would not try others. Please Ms Allen, never use this narrator again, boring, dry, terrible drawl accent.
