Publisher's Summary

Some of Diana Lindstrom’s fondest memories involve childhood experiments conducted under the watchful supervision of her Great-Aunt Nora, a celebrated physicist long ago shunned by the family for mysterious reasons. 

Now in her adult years and a sought-after scientist herself, Diana learns that Nora is dying. She hires private-duty nurse Brooke Sheldon to care for Nora. Over the days and weeks spent in Nora’s company, Diana and Brooke are privy to Nora’s long-held secrets, along with her deep-seated regrets.

Trapped in a failing body, but with a keen mind, Nora Lindstrom watches as the spark of attraction between her great-niece and her caregiver grows into a flame.

Determined to help the two younger women find the kind of deep love they so richly deserve, Nora makes a fateful decision that brings the past and the present directly onto a collision course. After all this time, it’s still about chain reactions.

Narrator

Strong storyline but it was very hard getting passed this narrator. the the narrator reads she needs lighthearted material not series and sad material. this book could have had a much bigger impact with Abby Craden or Angela Dawe or Lori Prince.

Excellent story

This story does an excellent job of blending the lives of the three main characters. The story of love lost and of a new love that is starting to grow. It tells the history of one of the women scientists in WWII who worked at Oakridge that helped win the war yet were not given credit for all they accomplished. This is definitely a must read. This is the first book that I have listened to by Ms. Ames and I look forward to reading more of her works.

great listen

Loved the book, story line was amazing, sweet and made you truly realize to grab life and take chances to be happy. The narrator could have been better. At times if felt like she was just reading and nit putting in the dramatics.

Interesting story; Awful narration

Chain Reactions is an interesting story, but the narration is awful. It's read way too fast with peculiar inflections, and the narrator frequently mixes up or overlaps the male/female vocal tones so it's difficult to figure out who is supposedly talking.

Story was interesting

I really didn’t like the narrator at all! It was painful how she made Diane sound like a 12 year old and Aunt Nora’s voice drove me crazy! Now that’s me but I had to pass on another book she narrated.

I love Lynn Ames’ writing, she is clear, very imaginative, and just like before I loved this book together with Emily Beresford narration it was a pleasure to listen to.

Worth listening

I loved the story and didn’t want it to end. It’s a tearjerker but worth a listen. I will say that the narrator was a bit much. She sounded like she was always arguing and at times it was annoying. I put the volume down so it wouldn’t bother me much because I wanted to listen to the story! It was all worth it!!
