DYNAMITE PLOT, GREAT CHARACTERS
Where does The Damnable Legacy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is a wonderful, complex, character-driven novel with a dynamite plot. If you like psychological, dramatic fiction, on the order of Sue Miller, Anne Tyler and Scott Spencer, you'll love this book as much as I do! Kretchmer's original new novel is narrated from the afterlife by a minister's wife and tells the fascinating story of a mountain climbing expedition at Denali and the woman who gave up her child for adoption years ago and does not know she has a granddaughter. A riveting, beautifully written story with a great cast of quirky characters. Absorbing and definitely worth reading! Beautifully read by Jannie Meisberger. Be sure to check it out!
