Publisher's Summary

Can we lose a loved one without losing ourselves?

Twenty-eight-year-old Drew Thomson is haunted by a troubled past. After struggling for years with alcoholism and antisocial behavior, he ends a stable relationship with his girlfriend and finds himself without a home, job, or purpose.

Just as he learns that his father is terminally ill, he meets a stranger who offers him a flicker of hope for a better future. But is he ready to bury the past?

Rich with dark humor and a keen insight into the human condition, this debut fictional release from author Brent Jones delves into life's most pressing trials - destructive relationships, love, loss, and pursuing happiness.

    "Moving. Sad. Eventually Hopeful"
    Where does The Fifteenth of June rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Fifteenth of June is outside my comfort zone of usual reading / listening. It isn't an easy listen. The protagonist, Drew, isn't easy to like, yet I identified with him. I understand the impact of an event that has the power to negatively impact an entire family for the time frame of almost a generation. And how eventually, we find how to overcome it and not be destroyed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fifteenth of June?

    There are many. The culmination of the family's and individually, Drew's letting go is a strong moment in the story.


    What does Wyatt Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I haven't read the print or ebook edition. Wyatt Baker does an admirable job! A strong listenable voice, an ability at dramatic narration without being cartoonish. A good choice for this work.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I mentioned that I identified with the book. And I titled the review to represent my reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    This is well thought out and well written. The narration was excellent, professional.
    I appreciate those attributes.

    It was entertaining and worth the time investment involved.

    Thanks for the opportunity to listen and offer my opinions on this work!A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.
