I listened to this many hours so got my money's worth. Lot of rehashing and at times boring but when I finished I missed it. Ove had become a companion.

I guess if you don't mind listening to a gravelled voice drunk through the whole story that isn't much of a story then you'll enjoy listening to this . Otherwise forget it.

Love Miss Julia series!

I've listened to all of the Miss Julia series and am looking for the next one. They are funny and on this one, Stirs Up Trouble, I actually made the Ritz Cracker pie! Cynthia Darlow is the perfect narrator for these books.

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this series. All three kept my interest and I could really get involved with the characters.

Too much detail!

This would have been a good listen but there was too much of the same thing. I fell asleep several times listening.

The narrator droned on and on and the story was boring. I didn't waste my time listening to the whole thing.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would take out all the profanity against God.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would take out all the profanity against God.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes - plus had a good singing voice.

Was A Virgin River Christmas worth the listening time?

Yes, but I cringed every time the author damned God.

Any additional comments?

I wonder why the author used profanity against God but celebrated the birth of His Son?

If you could sum up The Lost Wife in three words, what would they be?

An eye opener.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Wife?

The description of how the artwork was done and snuck out of the camp. How the Nazis changed the camp so that it appeared pleasant and then later turned back into it's horrible state.

Which character – as performed by George Guidall and Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

Loved both of the characters. The narrators were perfect!

If you could take any character from The Lost Wife out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Lenke. I would want to show her all the compassion I had for her as I read about her.

Any additional comments?

This book was very well done. I cannot quit thinking about it.
