I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. The narrator instantly brought the story to life. Which was very easy to do considering how well crafted this book was. The characters are vivid enough to picture each of them in my mind. Whether the reader has Greek heritage or not, everyone will be able to relate to the family drama. However, the author did a nice job of sharing about the Greek culture without sounding like a travel brochure or a lecture. At times, I found myself talking to the characters in my head even when I wasn’t listening to the book. In looking at the book, I think the different character voices made it a little easier to understand the multiple POVs. I really didn’t want this one to end.
The narration felt perfect for this story. The narrator did a good job a varying the voices enough to keep everyone separate.
This book offers a true family saga that covers multiple generations. The narrator was able to add to the story and provide different personalities for all the characters. Her voice was smooth and warm, which fit the story perfectly. I enjoyed the intermingling of Greek culture with the story, as well as the inclusion of recipes. Even though this book was historical in context, I was able to relate to the feelings of the characters and enjoy the story. A pleasurable read for a long holiday weekend.
