Three rules when reading Goddard . . .
Powerful story with hairpin twists and turns
This is one book that just cannot be summed up in three words!
This is a powerful story of attachment, loss, and idealized love.It underscores for the reader how enduring and destructive revenge can be. It also demonstrated the role that unequal marital relationships can play in crushing creativity and achievement. This is the 6th Goddard book I have listened to in the last few months. They are all excellent in different ways, but this one was the first that prompted me to write a review!
I don't think I have heard Michael Kitchen before, but in the hundreds of audible books I have listened to, I think he is the best narrator thus far. He is so good that you never notice the narration - you feel you are listening to the different characters as they speak. Fantastic.
I think this was the perfect name for the novel in view of the number of the meanings that it pulls from the story.
Audible needs to purchase more Goddard books! I am almost done with the ones you currently have.
