Publisher's Summary

After seven years of misery and abuse, it's all over - Hannah O'Malley is officially divorced. Hallelujah. It's like every Christmas in her life all rolled up into one glorious day. Not only does Hannah get to keep her grandmother's spacious old house, but she has full custody of her sparky five-year-old daughter. All Hannah has to do now is put the past behind her.

And now that she's free, she wants to make a difference. With the help of her warm, close-knit circle of friends - including her high school crush, Travis Wilson - Hannah begins turning her home into a safe house for other women who've endured the pain she's known. But even as life and laughter return to Hannah's home, she's haunted by the memory of her dangerously unstable ex. With a second chance at love on the horizon, Hannah must face down her past in order to let the sunshine back into her life.

I kept waiting for something to happen.

What disappointed you about The Lullaby Sky?

It was predictable, sappy and all of the characters were one sided. It was odd that the men seemed to be feminized. All of the death threats and talking about killing people were unnecessary and seemed out of character for the women in the story.

What could Carolyn Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

more character development; more of a description of personality characteristics that lead to abuse

What didn’t you like about Brittany Pressley’s performance?

I would honestly have to say she did all she could with a boring story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Lullaby Sky?

some of the cute child scenes

Sweet story

Classic cheesy romance, but definitely delivers on the heartwarming and hope giving element. I would recommend this if you're looking for a book that is easy to follow and enjoyable.

Don't Sing This Lullaby to Me, Please

I believed for a long time that starting a book meant I had to finish a book. I love reading, I love listening... I did not love this book.

I'm pretty certain the performance was what turned me off first. The icky little girl voice, the Texas accent (?), the "men," and poor Aunt Birdie. All distinct, but not good, while the women in the story, the best friends, all had the same voice--except for the one who marries Travis; she has a man's voice.

But the story was just so wrong. As a survivor of abuse and a longtime advocate of women escaping abusive situations, I was appalled at the poor information put out in this narrative. No one can decide to run a safe house for abuse survivors in two conversations. Not even close. Not every woman has the same experience of abuse. Every one in this book was hit and/or controlled by her husband or significant other because they had a lamp out of place, or left a hairbrush on the bathroom counter. Women get beaten for nothing, for breathing too loudly, for laughing at a tv show, but there are many women who live in squalor with their families and those oh so abusive men.

This novel--and I'm sure the author has tons of other big sellers--is a formulaic failure, a faux Christian approach to life with just enough swearing to (try to) keep people from finding the prose too preachy and a too-good-to-be-true support system. That doesn't even take into account the annoying, cloying child.

Poor Aunt Birdie probably hopes everyone will move away so she doesn't have to cook for forty people at every meal. I liked Birdie, truly. And that, I'm afraid, is all. I'll stick with novels that mimic real life instead of goo-fests and perfect people. The three feels generous.

predictable but fun

Easy listening and enjoyable. Although the plot was somewhat predictable, there were enough crooks and turns to keep one interested. I enjoyed it. It was narrated well.

lovely book, thought provoking

i loved this book, felt for all the characters within the first half hour of listening, it ended before i wanted it too and it has left me wanting to know more, all loose ends were tied up, but not closed so there could be another made. it is a very sensitive subject, and might not be everyone's cup of tea, but really shows how you can come out the other end. would highly recommend if you like a listen that tugs on your heart strings

What a great book

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about friendship, the community spirit courage and of course love.
This book was not only well written as can be expected from this author but it was well researched.
I could relate to the main characters story n I hope it would give strength, hope n courage to people going through something similar
I hope it will also give other readers the drive to talk to our girls about the signs to look out for because there are a lot of them.
