...but not my taste as a female reader/listener. I won’t be taking his “great book” suggestions any more. It was well-performed.

I laughed out loud and sighed with sadness. Great to hear the author's own inflections, even though I usually prefer hearing professional actor-readers for audiobooks. Highly recommended for those aspiring to "country life" or finding themselves in it. If you are offended by swearing, you might be put-off, but you'd miss a great story. Hoping for a sequel.

Thanks, Jodi!

I've listened to them all, and now get some background on the characters. Nicely written and well read.

This audio seems to have come from the author reading his lecture notes rather than actual lectures. I think he would have had more energy had he been actually delivering this information live. I am sure they were very interesting in-person, but I had to speed up the recording to make it through.

However, that said, it was well-researched and had good information. Worth listening to if you are exploring integrative medicine. Anyone considering using Mayo Clinic services should listen to the last two chapters at a minimum, because they speak of options that are available there.

We listen to these stories as we drive 7 hours each way to see his parents every couple of months. No sleepiness on those drives!

I bought this for my daughter-in-law who prefers listening over reading after I'd read about Catherine Shainberg in an article about thinking outside the box. Researching her, I found number of YouTube interviews related to this book. Although I'm out of the childbearing years, I listened to the first section and then happily gifted a copy to my daughter-in-law. I've even found a few exercises I did myself and bookmarked to go back to in the future. I think it may be beneficial to use a slower speed or make a practice of stopping the recording periodically to experience the exercises to the fullest. I found her accent pleasant and her voice soothing.

Liked the characters and the uniqueness of St Mary's.

Especially good if you like history like I do!

At the end of the book I had to go back to the beginning to remind myself of the story line with Sylvia and the clues to the lost quilter (a continuation of an earlier episode). Once I did that, I was very satisfied, the storyline met all expectations, with some savory mystery still remaining. As one who enjoys civil war era historical novels, this did not disappoint.

This was a great summation of each of the founding members and added depth to stories previously shared about them. Liked the chapter styles (one per character).
