Publisher's Summary

Andrea Smith's sophomore novel has received widespread praise for its small-town appeal.

When Bonnie Wilder's husband, Naz, finds an abandoned baby by the river, she thinks her prayers have been answered. But Naz refuses to raise another man's child.

After Bonnie publicly voices her concern for local mothers unable to raise their newborns, she finds more bundles of joy at her doorstep. Bonnie joins with a group of friends to form a secret network matching the unwanted babies with childless families. Heedless of the sheriff 's warnings, the women proudly continue their blessed work.

Then, 30 years later, one of those babies wants to know about her past - forcing Bonnie to recall the painful choices she made to carry out her mission.

NOT an attention getter

I did not like this book. I listened to the first 30 minutes or so and it didnt do anything for me. It took me 2 months to finish it. I figured if I paid for it, I may as well listen to it. I think it was supposed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy but it didnt do it for me.

Great read!

I bought this as a hardback from Literary Guild last year, but I never had the time to read it. When I saw it here I decided to download it. Just as I suspected when I bought the hardback this story is a great read. The character were so real and I found that some of the characters had personalities like people I actually know. I enjoyed this story very much and I enjoyed the happy ending for the main character Bonnie.

Good but Slow Read

This book was very hard to get into because it's a slow read. The book was good with a twist at the end.

The Sisterhood of blackberry Corner

I highly recommend this book for its basic storyline, a bit of mystery, suspense and humor. It was most refreshing and enjoyable in the audible version.

Excellent Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Enjoyed this book from begining to end. I grew up knowing women like these. It was easy to relate to the personalities and how they felt and their situations. I would welcome more books from Andrea Smith . The narrator Lizan Mitchell made the story come to life..

Shocking End.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sisterhood of Blackberry Corner to be better than the print version?

I always enjoy the audio better. Especially when the narrator is good and really gets into character.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Thora Dean because she reminds me of someone I know. She is also that friend that you want to have, cause she tells you the truth, but you never want to be on her bad side. Ugh.

Have you listened to any of Lizan Mitchell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great job. Each characters unique voice is great.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

At the end I was so surprised. I was shocked.
