I have enjoyed both this book and its predecessor in the quartet, _The Light Years_, for its range of characters--mostly sweet and kind people who are flawed in relatable ways. The narrator is excellent. These are books that I don't have to tune into every day, as the plot continues gently and is more about the thoughts and feelings of the many characters than about exciting development, but I find myself becoming more and more drawn in as the books proceed. I feel connected to the characters and think about them, almost as real people, even when I'm not listening.
I am looking forward to the final two in the series.
No.. struggled to get through it.
clear narration and great voice inflection
Did not suit my taste in stories. Found it a bit trite and boring
The story moved well until it started delving into the lives of the older adults, homosexuality and immoral living, left me very disappointed in a story about lives during the war.
