Publisher's Summary

My name is Charlotte, and I have a special gift: I talk to the dead. Make no mistake, I can't summon them. I'm able only to see and speak to the spirits that linger when they're unable to cross over. They're somehow weighted to the world with unfinished affairs. And for the last six years, I've relentlessly used my gift to help their lost souls.

But it's come at a price. My life is dark. Feeling despondent, I've begun to give up. And in helping the dead, I've realized I haven't allowed myself to live. With no money, no place to go, and, most importantly, no hope, I've decided there is only one option - to end it all.

Fate is a funny thing, though. One minute I'm about to leap to my death, and the next I'm saved by Ike McDermott. The strong, striking soldier stopped me from putting an end to my despair. He's the kind of man who smiles and brightens an entire room. Sweet and gentle, he's my savior - and he's dead.

I knew it would be horrible

Not the book, but the crying. Gets me every time. Full ugly cry, snot included.

A POWERFUL BEAUTIFUL PNR THAT SHOULDN'T BE MISSED

Well way to go Ms Toler.... because you've officially broken my heart and stamped all over it with this poignant, tragic, heartbreaking, funny and heartwarming love story. And, as I type this review, the tears are still running down my face, I'm surrounded by tissues, my throat is painful from trying to hold back my emotions and my heart is torn into shreds. Oh, I knew the pain was coming but never did I think that it was possible to write such achingly beautiful and very touching scenes as the ones I've just listened to.... and am now trying to recover from (but it might take me a while).

Charlotte (Char) sees the dead who are caught in limbo not quite ready to move on because they have unfinished business here on this plain. Char was given this ability after a tragic accident cruelly robbed her of her Brother and left her broken and in a coma. She's been struggling and travelling around for five years after her disbelieving parents gave her money and kicked her out - but now, lonely, cold and broken, she's finally hit rock bottom and wants to end it all.... and that's when Ike comes into her life.

Sniff, sniff.... sorry but I'm reliving the story.... oh get a grip girl.... ok ok it's been 5 minutes and I've pulled myself together (for now) and can see the screen again. Ike is dead but he's shocked and happy that he can be seen and talk to someone after so long and he wants to save this beautiful broken stranger too. He also needs her help to save his brother George who is in a bad place both physically and mentally to hide his pain - so they make a bargain that will eventually lead Char to happiness.... but it'll be through angst, drama and a whole heap of heartbreak too. Because not everyone in the sleepy little town is pleased to see her, not everyone takes pity on her and not everyone gives her a helping hand.... but thankfully most of them take her under their wings unaware that she's accompanied by Ike..... their friend, their brother or their son.

As you can see this listen really moved me - it was hauntingly beautiful and yet devastating too as Char slowly gets closer to both brothers and their family and friends - always aware that she's withholding the truth from the living but she's just waiting for the 'right time' to tell. But Char's also heartbreakingly aware of her impending dilemma.... that if she fixes George she will lose Ike forever. That's sad enough.... but it's how it's written, the gut wrenching words that make such emotional scenes that this talented Author has brought about and the way you can't help but be totally charmed by all the characters concerned - especially Ike, that really gets to you as you reach the inevitable. There's angst and some drama, the chemistry is palpable leading to soul-deep romance with no sex and it's humorous as well as being 'tear your heart out' painful. Mainly dual POV's (Ike and Char's) and then finally a few Chapters from George's POV and the narration was good. Standalone and no cliffhanger.

Worth a credit? One million YES'.... and worth the tears, puffy eyes and being laughed at too.

Beautiful Story

I really loved this story and thought it was beautiful. It certainly had its sad parts as well - but they were beautifully written. I haven't enjoyed a love story this much in a long time.

Tissues Required

I fell in love with all the main characters in this book. But I did cry. I always knew who was talking (good narrators.) I really wish there was a second book. How did Sniper end up in this small town? How did Cam fare in college? Do Char's parents ever believe in her gift? The book stayed with me after finishing. Listen to it. Read it. Loved it.

I’m a widow!

I found peace and hope in this beautiful book. It left me breathless as I remember the short 34 year life time I spent with the love of my life. I treasure a good book like this one. Thank you !

I would not have chosen this for myself.

I never read book descriptions which has ended up with two super odd books in the last two days. This is not a book that I ever would have picked for myself if I had actually read the description. I'm so glad that after I started realizing what was going on (around chapter 3) that I didn't decide to give up on this book. It's still not over, It's in my ear right now and I am so in love with this book. It truly has been so fulfilling. It has shed light on something I haven't really considered. This book. was everything I didn't know I needed and it's not even over yet. This one got me.

A great love story with excellent audio narration!

This is a truly amazing love story. The author does a beautiful job illustrating, through words, what love and loss not only feels like but also looks like. This is a must read love story of courage, faith, strength, and unconditional love.

Loveable story line

There is just something magical in the way B. N. Toler paints her stories on the canvas in your mind. You see and hear the details and you're transported into the life of the story. This is a great read and I love the charm and the swirl of emotions she puts in her books. Strong characters and loveable storyline. Take this one with you on the plane or your trip. You're going to love it.

A touching and slightly emotional journey

4.5 stars. I loved most of this book. It was really touching and a bit of an emotional journey. It was quite lovely. I really disliked the epilogue though. It somewhat cheapened both the story and Char's gift.

Where One Goes was sweet, heartbreaking, and heartwarming. I loved Ike, George, the Mercers, even Sniper. That little town had a lot of really great people. I was very invested in this story, as well as the various characters. I read/listened to this book straight through in one day. I didn't want to put it down.

Audible:The narrators did a good job. It was a really easy book to listen to.

Beautiful

what an absolutely wonderful story. Not my usual genre but I'm so glad I chose this. The story is so well written and I just loved all the characters. The narration was brilliant from both. Highly recommended
