Publisher's Summary

Alice Bennett knows what it means to suffer. After burying her abusive childhood and reinventing herself, Alice is living a life she never imagined could be hers. She's married to a perfect Southern gentleman. She has a challenging job she loves - writing for a women's magazine. But when her past comes back with a vengeance, Alice finds herself on the outs with her husband, her perfect life crumbling around her feet.

Desperate to get things back to where they were, Alice travels to the mountains of North Georgia to care for her mother-in-law who was injured in a bad fall. Her motives aren't purely altruistic; she's hoping to get back into her husband's good graces. When she arrives, Alice discovers that the fall was no accident. Alice must battle her own inner demons as she uncovers the not-so-perfect truth of her husband's past. Ugly family secrets and devious attacks from an unknown assailant threaten to kill more than just Alice's dreams.

A dark journey into the Georgia mountains where kudzu covers the landscape and a grudge can last generations, All the Broken People will leave you questioning who the good guys really are or whether they exist at all.

Okay novel, but terrible narration

The story was engaging for the most part, and the writing was pretty good, in spite of some trite metaphors and similes. The characters were very well developed. The ending struck me as trite, and was a bit sappy and predictable. I wish I had read the book instead of listening, however. For one thing, it was really hard to get past the many mispronounced words. There were also numerous instances where the phrasing and word stress didn’t match the intended meaning, causing me to use the back/repeat button quite a bit. Overall, I would not recommend this recording of the book.

talk about suspense!



A story full of suspense at every turn. This book makes you feel for every character, good and bad. Definitely worth the time and hard to put down.

Complex characters and gorgeous landscaoe

All The Broken People is an engaging story enclosed in lush, green Georgia. Tension and suspicion runs high… exploring the good aspects of “bad people”, the bad aspects of “good people”, and all the complexity in between. I listened to the audio version and the performance was exceptional. Each character had distinction and depth, both in the story and in the performance. The smells and sounds of the deep South were easy to conjure without any cheap clichés. There are a few unanswered questions… room for a sequel? A very worthwhile audiobook.

This is an awesome mystery!!

I wasn’t sure about this at first... but the more I listened, the more I wanted to know what really happened and how this came to an end! I was so invested in the story... that I listened to it very quickly!

When I listen, I often try to put myself in the characters place... but I cant imagine what Alice went through! I can’t imagine living with the secrets, being afraid all of the time, of being in a relationship like she had... all of it. I recommend this book!

Amy Rivers did such an amazing job of keeping my attention.. there was so much happening that I couldn’t stop listening. Amanda Stribling, as a narrator, did a good job.

Suspense

That was a good, suspenseful one. Narration was good. This was my first book by both author and narrator. I will definitely be listening to both again.

This book will keep you on your toes!

This is a well written “who done it” with lots of action. The characters are good and have likeable personalities, well most of them!! Great performance from Amanda.

Suspenseful Thriller

Alice goes to Georgia to take care of her mother in law. As she takes care of her secrets that have been hidden come to light.

This book is a full of suspense. And kept me at the edge of my seat as I listened.

Amy Rivers did a great job writing this one. She makes you feel for every character.

Amanda Stribling did a great job narrating!
