Spanning three continents and half a century, this is the second in the series of books charting Benjamin Drum's life. Between Times traces the lives and wanderings of the families along Sorrow Creek in mythical Marshall County, North Carolina. Fans of The Summer Boy will delight to recognize some familiar characters and discover new ones to love among other mountains where Drum grows up and the Laurel remains as elusive and hidden as it is real and powerful.
I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This was just not my favorite. It was very reminiscent of Mark Twain with more fantasy elements thrown in. I thought it could have been shorter. The fact that this was book two in a series, and I hadn't read the first one may have contributed to my not being able to get into the story. The main thing, though, was the narrator. It sounded more like he was recording a meditation track than reading a story of a young guy's adventure... I got bored several times and found myself completely tuning the book out at times. I honestly never finished the book because I just couldn't build up enough interest.

I got this book via audiobook boom. the narration was very good. this book takes you on several wild rides with many twists. It is a long book and ends up where it started. Although complicated you just have to suspend your belief system and listen to the book.
