I'd read the reviews when I chose this book and I realized that I was gonna be crying. Of course I've cried when a family got their house repaired on a DIY show. Sure enough I was puddling up thirty minutes into the audiobook. This was a heartbreaking, heart opening story. Though at one point I considered dropping the rating to a four due to the over the top sentimentality that is the epitome of lesbian romance novels. Then the inevitable ending that the book had been building towards since the halfway point and I knew that this was a five in spite of the flaws. The sentimentality was past over the top but I'm told by a reliable source that 18 year old girls can get that way from time to time. When we finished the story and finished crying, we agreed that they're times when a little over the top sentimentality is just what you need. I related to her stories about two movies; Brian's Song and Field of Dreams that always got to me. Sometimes it's important just to share a good cry.

I loved 'Music of the Soul', which is why I decided to buy this.
I also have this in my Kindle library, and one advantage of the audio is it's not blighted by the editing errors. Admittedly compared to some the errors aren't too bad, but they are annoying.
The story itself was a nice little romp. And although tissues might be required, I felt the end of the story really didn't work. It seemed very rushed and a bit unbelievable, that's what gets the lower rating.
Narrator did a good job, the only problem I had was hearing her talk and wanting to put the words from 'Music of the Soul' to her voice. I got around that problem by making sure I had a decent gap between hearing that audio book and listening to this one.Yes, that's how much I have listened to 'Music of the Soul' because I'm getting to know the words off by heart.
An added bonus as far as I'm concerned is the fact you don't get a book bogged down by unnecessary erotica. For whatever reason far too many stories seem to be no more than soft porn these days. I know erotica has its place, but I hate when you read/listen to a book expecting a drama/thriller/western/crime and you end up with it falling into nothing more than the soft porn category.
So for those of us who don't mind a bit of erotica in the story, but hate when that's all a story ends up as, books like these are a breath of fresh air.
