Your mom and her emotional absence has a lot to do with your current state in life. The Emotionally Absent Mother will delve into your mother's apathy, and why such a lack of compassion may not be her fault. This audiobook will also help you find ways to cope with the pain that you suffered as a child, as well as look past the scars to see a better future.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Emotionally Absent Mother to be better than the print version?

Yes I would

What did you like best about this story?

I have a lot of anger issues with my Mom and the mere title of the book caught my attention and I was curious. I actually may listen to this one again. There were several points of topic that I took note of and plan to use.

What about Dora Gaunt’s performance did you like?

Very calming voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I did. The topic was personal to my own life I plan to make reference of it to improve my own situation with my Mother.

Any additional comments?

Thank you for this.

Would you consider the audio edition of Photo Shoot to be better than the print version?

Yes because I enjoy being able to do other things at the same time as listening to the book.

What did you like best about this story?

As I get older I enjoyed that a older woman was the hero, not to underestimate her.

Which character – as performed by D. Gaunt – was your favorite?

Linsay.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I extremely like the closure at the end when she confronted Jorge. I found the word maybe at the end to be cautious yet powerful.

Any additional comments?

Very good looking read (Listen) =)

It begins in the summer before Gracie will be starting high school, and she is very nervous about it. To make matters worse, her best friend Michie is off spending the summer with her father and Gracie is left all alone. However, her loneliness is short-lived when she meets Henry and they set out on an adventure that Gracie will never forget.

What did you love best about My Henry?

The storyline was right up my alley of what I enjoy in both books and movies. Fantasy, magic, the possibilities of what if's, love, a touch of reality. This book had a touch of all of them.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That's a toss up between Gracie and Henry. On one hand I loved Henry and who his character was, but on the other hand I was envious of Gracie for getting a glimpse into a world I want to be in so I got to share that with her.

Have you listened to any of Dora Gaunt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my 1st experience with both an audio book and with listening to Dora. At first I had a little bit of a hard time and lost concentration a few times (I'm use to reading and bringing the story to life in my own mind with my own voice) but before I knew I it got easier to listen while doing other things online. Her voice was very calming, kept my attention and I quickly found the experience very enjoyable. I was able to do other things while being sweep away into the story and actually picturing the events. THAT'S when you know I love a book, if I'm living it, and she took me on that journey.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes the ending. I will not type any spoilers for the ending here but I will say I yelled NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO at the ending that it was over and would like BOOK TWO PLEASE! I'd like to see that story continue and take me further.

Any additional comments?

Thank you for the fun and excitement of a good book!
