I enjoyed the story line and the time period of the story. The narrator whispered some of time and could not be heard. Otherwise she was good.

Reeling from her unsatisfying, high-pressure life, Emily decides she needs a change. She decides on a whim to drive to her father's abandoned home on the coast of Maine, a sprawling, historic house where she'd spent magical summers as a child. But the house, long-neglected, is in dire need of repair, and the winter is no time to be in Maine. Emily hasn't been there in 20 years. Now, for some reason, with her life reeling, Emily feels drawn to the only childhood place she ever knew.

This book was terrible and I couldn't finish! How could someones life be that pathetic. Not something you want to spend your relaxation time listening to!!! The narrator did a great job considering what she had to work with😞
