Serious not typical Nantucket read!!
Would you listen to An Act of Love again? Why?
No, it was a serious topic while written well but not an easy listen if you've been a victim of rape.
What other book might you compare An Act of Love to and why?
This would be a book in itself; i have nothing to compare this one as of now.
What does Barbara Caruso bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Barbara brings life to the story that I wouldn't get reading.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I found the topic of rape a little difficult to listen to; it was quite serious even though very well written and a good book; I think I didn't realize it was a harder read than most. I think the clarity of this subject was excellent. I found the emotions of how they kept the family as husband/wife together interesting. Combined families can tear a relationship apart but this family struggles to stay together.
Any additional comments?
Definitely not a predictable book. Nancy Thayer is an amazing writer! Beware though this is not a light read.
