Heard it

Lazy summer easy read. Not challenging but not predictable until much later in the book.

What a delightful book

I wasn’t sure at the beginning because I read the reviews. Sometimes you have to just listen to the book and make your own conclusions. I truly loved this book! The characters, the love Hush had for her family, heritage and son was so moving. I loved how many strong women were in this book. I can’t say enough about the performance - ten stars aren’t enough! ❤️❤️

Great Dual Reading

Not my favorite novel by Smith, but a good solid story nonetheless. At first the reading by two voices took me by surprise but it really added texture to the narrative without compromising any of Smith's quality writing, in my opinion.

Left the best part off --- the ending

Having read this great book multiple times I was looking forward to the ending where she tells him she's pregnant. Nope not there, I was so disappointed I so wanted to hear his reaction to the news. I had to bring the book up and reread the ending. Overall the everything was great until then.

Great book, irritating performance!

This is a favorite book of mine and the female actress was fine but the guy was incredibly cheesy and irritating. I know there redneck characters and southern but that was awful.

Love/hate

I am currently still listening to this book but wanted to leave a review on how I am feeling so far. There are things about this book that I absolutely love. Such as Hush and Nicks relationships. Hush determination to be and do something more with her life. The thing that I truly did not enjoy was Hush’s relationship with her husband but not because he was “no good”, but rather because she treated him soo badly. She said she loved him but pushed him away at every opportunity. Who would want to keep fighting for a marriage when their partner had no trust in them which she made very apparent even before he did anything really. Marriage takes compromise from both people. It can not be one sided. It looks like he just gave up because she didn’t give a Hoyt on do anything else.
