Publisher's Summary

The Grey sisters had only each other when their mother died years ago. Their father provided for them physically on Water's Edge, the ranch that had been in their family for three generations, each of them however, longed for their father's love.

Winona, the oldest, knew early on that she could never get it. An overweight dreamer and reader, she didn't exhibit the kinds of talents and strengths her father valued.

Vivi Anne, the youngest, had those things. And it was Vivi Anne who only ever saw a glimmer of their father's approval.

When Vivi Anne makes a fateful decision to follow her heart, rather than take the route of a dutiful daughter, events are set in motion that will test the love and loyalties of the Grey sisters.

With breathtaking pace and penetrating insight, Kristin Hannah's True Colors is a novel about sisters, vengeance, rivalry, betrayal - and ultimately, what it truly means to be a family.

Well written, POORLY narrated... :(

I strongly agree with other reviewers that this book is poorly narrated. While Kristin Hannah is a SUPERB author, Sandra Burr totally took a wonderful story and BUTCHERED it !!! I have well over 100 downloads from Audible and for the most part have enjoyed all of them, but if given the chance again, I wouldn't pay $1.00 for it ! In the past Susan Ericksen has narrated some of Ms. Hannah's books and I so wish she had done this one!!! Some of the adult characters have "baby-like" voices, and it's hard to imagine an adult in them.. DO NOT BUY IT !!! This download comes in 2 parts, and half-way thru part 1, I abandoned it !!!

Poor narration and trite plot

I couldn't make it very far in this book...the narrator's voice drove me crazy, especially when in the voice of Winona. I also found the characters and plot very predictable and stereotypical. I've read this author in the past but won't do so again, and will definitely avoid the narrator!

Am I missing something?

The reviews said it was great so I thought I'd try it. This is one of the simplest books I've half-way listened to (I quit about half-way through part 1.). It's so silly and one-sided and the narrator's voice for the oldest sister makes her sound like a whiney, baby chipmunk. If you like a book with some kind of substance and plot, pass on this one.

A little long but good

This was a little long and predictable but it was an enjoyable story and I loved following the lives of the individual sisters. Definitely a good lesson here when you see how the lives of the three sisters changes over the years. Well worth the time spent listening!

Outstanding Book

A well written and heart touching book. Thoroughly enjoyed it, while the theme of false imprisonment was tough. Read very ably by Sandra Burr.

A beautiful story

The backdrop of the northwestern USA and the present day issues of pride and prejudice told within the bounds of a family makes for a spellbinding, pageturner! It’s a beautiful story.

Fabulous

I’m reading through all Hannah’s books having been addicted since the first one. This like the others had well developed characters and plot. Through heartache and joy I followed the family. A must read.

The narrator reading the story makes it hard to listen too!

I have loved all the books and stories by Kristin Hannah and maybe I’d like this one if I read it. But the narrator makes it hard to listen to. She tries to change voices and it all sounds the same. I wish I hadn’t wasted my money on this audible book!

A great title!

Yet again, Kristin Hannah produces a most fantastic read. A most beautifully written story of romance, justice and most of all family bonds.

Disappointing

I was so disappointed with this book. The narration was terrible and made the plot seem even more trite. I'm very sorry I bought this book.
