  • The Whole Town's Talking

Elmwood Springs, Missouri, is a small town like any other, but something strange is happening out at the cemetery. Still Meadows, as it's called, is anything but still. Funny and profound, this novel in the tradition of Flagg's Can't Wait to Get to Heaven and Thornton Wilder's Our Town deals with universal themes of heaven and earth and everything in between, as Flagg tells a surprising story of life, afterlife, and the mysterious goings-on of ordinary people.

I loved it because I am such a fan of her Elmwood Springs books so this gives you a unique glimpse into how it all started along with the familiar characters like Elner, Tott Whooten, etc. There’s no big plot or main story it is more of a character study but if your a fan I think you will greatly appreciate it. It takes place from the 1800’s to 2016.

Growing up, Cassie Carter and her sisters, Karen and Nichole, were incredibly close - until one fateful event drove them apart. After high school, Cassie ran away from home to marry the wrong man, throwing away a college scholarship and breaking her parents' hearts. To make matters worse, Cassie had always been their father's favorite - a sentiment that weighed heavily on her sisters and made Cassie's actions even harder to bear.

This was a wonderful story with great characters and a lot of heart revolving around a very painful and difficult subject matter that was handled very well. Like all of Debbie's wonderful stories, it was true and from the heart with wonderful descriptions and characters of the story evolved. I especially loved the fact that it had Habitat for Humanity be such a big part of the story as my family has been involved with this organization in the past and it wonderful. Wasn't crazy about the push over the fast food restaurant KFC though and the 12-year-old daughter's dialogue got on my nerves sometimes, but not a deal-breaker. If you're a fan of Debbie's work I think you'll really appreciate and enjoy this novel and is performed very well by the narrator.

I couldn't stop listening. As an 80s teen growing up in Los Angeles I could identify with so much of the background Rob writes about when he first came here in the 70s. I could identify with so much of it in so many ways as although I decided to not try and be in the entertainment business I dabbled in it here and there at the same age he first did and had a few friends in the industry that were child actors. I especially loved how he talked about all the actors of his age group in the acclaimed and sometimes campy 80s movies many generations still love today. And to hear the real side of some of the things that went on was refreshing to me as I never believe the tabloids or most of the media. I have a great respect for this actor and his family and his work and I have already downloaded the second book to listen to today as I work in my studio. Thanks Rob Lowe for sharing. Not only are you a gifted actor and writer but a great storyteller as well. Thank you for making this book available as an audiobook for those of us who have difficulties with our eyes. Your narration was beautiful.

I really enjoyed this particular book by Waverley Curtis. Had a lot of detail & a pretty cool story with a lot of action and romance. And of course I love Pepe and Jerry. Plus I am familiar with the lavender festival in Washington so it brought it to life I can't wait for the next audiobook from the Chihuahua series as I have completed them all. The narrator does such a good job of these books.

London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb.... As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends – and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is.
