Slow slow slow

Didn’t really have a topic until the last few chapters. Everyday I said “ if this doesn’t get to the point, I’m done”

My favorite Karen White-friends, family, secrets and love

Good narration. Excellent generational story of friends and family dynamics. Not sappy or unnecessarily filled with sex. Sometimes we make mistakes and have hard choices in life. Finding peace and understanding of ourselves opens the door to acceptance and loving relationships with family and lifelong friends.

Tugs at the heartstrings !

What a marvelous book! I love the timeframe and the depth of the characters. This book gives you a glimpse into the souls of women that love, hurt, and forgive. It can be a light read or a deep read depending on your need but overall it’s an entertaining and enjoyable read! I always love KW’s books and this one is one of my favorites.

Karen White could not have written this slow, redundant book.

Please do not use a credit or spend your money on this poorly written book . Having read and greatly enjoyed almost all of Karen White’s books, I find it hard to believe she wrote this one. Plot was repeated numerous times and the lead character was most annoying. Her narrator didn’t help her weak and shallow character. I can’t think of anything good to say about this silly book except it finally ended.

Long

Nice story, but get to the point, please!
Predictable and long. Good southern story. Overall not up to her usual writing.

Not my favorite Karen White, Pretty Slow

This was not my favorite Karen White book for sure. I forced myself to get through it because it was very slow. It ended okay but long getting there.

Great story

When Larkin goes home to see her mother, who’s been gravely injured, she goes on a journey of exploration that includes her past, the past of those who love her and the future she’s meant to find.

I loved this story more than I can say and will keep those characters in my heart for quite some time, I think.

WARMS AND HURTS THE HEART AT THE SAME TIME!

I am a fan of Karen White! I especially like her method of writing i.e. going from one era of time to another to pull the story together. This story brings family together in love and heartbreak in ways that captures your attention to the very end. And speaking of...I love the story ending. Great job!

I'm not normally a fan of multiple narrators but for this particular story, it worked for me. I wasn't so much aware of the change in voice as I was to the change in the character.

Very much worth the credit!

Disappointing by one of my favorite authors

I usually enjoy Karen White. I ended up listening a 1.5 speed toward the end to finish the book. The characters couldn't make worse choices if they tried. Annoying story. Stick with her other books.

I just love Karen White!

I love the way she weaves the past & present into such interesting stories with characters you feel like you’ve been friends with your whole life.
