I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I particularly enjoyed all the bookish mentions, from past favourite reads (All-of-a-Kind Family) to making mental notes of books I have yet to read (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks). I identified with the main character, but must admit that towards the end found her a bit more self-centered than I would have liked. I found the ending predictable.

I thought Julia Whelan did a good job - I found her voice quite soothing, although I thought all of her male characters sounded the same and once or twice thought she missed talking in the children's voices.

I would read another book by Elisabeth Egan and definitely listen to another narrated by Julia Whelan.
