One of the most moving stories I have ever read and listened to. Wonderful narration too. Lyrical, beautiful prose. Just magnificent.

Imogen Church's character range is AMAZING

Loved the narrator's voice and character voice range. The writing was excellent. Land has written an unforgettable story. Truly a thought-provoking book that would make a great book club selection for discussion. "Good me, bad me" should disturb every one of us, on a lot of levels. Due to the combination of the story and Church's outstanding and riveting narration of the story, I cannot get the characters' voices and the story out of my head. One heck of a read.

Incredible, Ms. Jiles, and a incredible gift to listeners and readers. Grover Gardner brought this book to its ism life. He has an amazing voice and acted this brilliantly. His voice had depth, breath; shook in anger, smiled and grew quivery in all the right places. What an amazing story!

I bought both the print and audio version of this book..The narrator brought Jill Mansell's wonderful story completely to life. It was so well done that at times I stopped reading, just so I could savor the spoken words. Just a great story!

Some fun and great lines. Loved seven-year-old Sydney and the main character. Moving and thought-provoking at times.

A story that captivated me as much for its writing as it did by the story-telling narrators. Amazing performances. Truly memorable. I will search for these narrators in the future. I did not want this book to end. Bravo to Laura McBride and the cast.

First time reader of Jill Mansell and Alison Larkin. Nice story, nice narrator. Will look for more by both.
