What made the experience of listening to For the Love of Elvis the most enjoyable?
I originally bought the audiobook for my mom whom is a die-hard Elvis fan. She raved about it so much, I had to listen to it myself. Marla Selvidge does an absolutely wonderful job of weaving an uplifting story about Elvis and how much his life and music touched so many in America. The author take a new twist and ties in her own life experiences around the life of Elvis in a way many of us can truly relate to. The audiobook is further enhanced with a delightful narration by Caitlin Moreland - a narrator who’s work I’ll be sure to follow in the future. Truly heart-warming. Two-thumbs up.
