After the end of her marriage, Kate Granger has retreated to her parents' home on Lake Superior to pull herself together - only to discover the body of a murdered woman washed into the shallows. Tucked in the folds of the woman's curiously vintage gown is an infant, as cold and at peace as its mother. No one can identify the woman. Except for Kate. She's seen her before. In her dreams...

A little mystery, a little romance, a little supernatural . . . all wrapped up in one story. The narration was spot on. Some of the story was predictable but I still got a surprise in the end that I wasn't expecting.
I appreciate that the language was clean as was the story line.

You can't run away from your past. But in some cases, it's worth a try. Sarah Landers' parents were killed in a plane crash when she was 17; her only sister committed suicide days after. Now, nearly a decade later, Sarah assures everyone she is perfectly fine - never mind her quiet aloofness, her intensity at work, her seeming neglect of any social life. Only Sarah knows the whole story. Only she is aware of the dark memories that plague her with guilt - of the fear of discovery that paralyzes her soul.

I liked the story line, the romance, and that it was clean. But it really dragged. Listen to the first hour and the last hour. Here is what happens in the middle:
He: tell me what happened
She: No - I just can't
He: Now really - tell me what happened
She: No - I just can't
(repeat about 5 more times.)

The narrator did well for the female voices but the male voice I found irritating.

Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

I loved her behind the scenes insights. Mostly I was so impressed with her generous praise and acknowledgment of others who helped her along the way.

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice's life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels.

I loved the premise of this book. However the overuse of metaphor and over use of the "f" word bogged down the story for me.

Secrets told in the church ladies' room are supposed to stay in the ladies' room. But that doesn't mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude's funeral won't change the rest of her life. Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion; a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married life; and a mother with Alzheimer's residing in the local nursing home.

Would you consider the audio edition of Seventh Son to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed both the print version and the audio. It was fun to listen to this after having read it several years ago.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

Reverend Thrower I felt was performed very well. I was more intrigued by his motives as I listened -- much more so than when I read the book. I may have been that the first time I read it I was more intent on Alvin and Tale Swapper and this time I thought more about this character.
