Widowed early, Amber is content, maybe complacent, in solitude. Soothed by a quirky affinity with nature, and a trust in a larger purpose, she also has a reckless, belligerent side. Ben is an airline pilot turned successful writer caught up in the glitz of L.A. and its pitfalls at the cost of family, health, and direction. He's brilliant, crotchety, and determinedly pragmatic in the face of life's turns. They meet by chance (or was it?) and embark on a journey neither was seeking, or prepared for, culminating in an edge-of-the-seat ending that leaves the listener stunned.
Unlike the first reader, I really did not enjoy this book. In fact, it was hard for me to stick with until the end, which was the only good part of the book. There was way too much(who talks like that)conversation and drawn out discriptions.
This is one of the most fantastic books I have listened to in a long time. I had trouble shutting it off to get anything else done. When she had her accident I thought all hope was gone. I shut off my MP3 player, removed my glasses and wept crocodile tears. Not only was the book well written, but it was also well read. I will listen to more of her books in the future. Thank you Susan.
