Publisher's Summary

A coming-of-age debut audiobook from accomplished actor, director, and writer Sean Patrick Flanery explores that powerful first taste of love that sets the bar for something that we'll chase, usually unsuccessfully, for the rest of our lives.
A young Mickey navigates through the dense Texas humidity of the '70s and out onto the porch every single time his granddaddy calls him, where he's presented with the heirloom recipe for life, love, and manhood. But all the logic and insight in the world cannot prepare him to operate correctly in the presence of a wonderfully beautiful little girl who moves in just behind his rear fence. How will this magical moment divide Mickey's life into a before and after and permanently change his motion, directing it down the unpaved road to which only a lucky few are granted access?

Jane Two is a masterpiece...

...it throws you from laughter to the ground crying like a baby within seconds.
The story is about the one and only love only one can describe that intensely, that found it once in his life. It's about growing up, family, wisdom, friendship, regret and most of all LOVE. The fact that it is autobiographical and narrated by the author Sean Patrick Flanery himself makes it so special...you can hear and feel EVERY single emotion in his voice while listening...I felt Mickeys anger, his fear, the happy moments made me smile and the sad ones nearly broke my heart and left me crying...Flanery is able to paint pictures that powerful and strong, you can see the story developing before your inner eyes...every single character becomes your friend, your teacher or your enemy like a real person while reading!! And than there's Jane...the girl this novel is all about...she is described with the most beautiful pictures I've ever read/heard!!
If you think, you would enjoy an emotional, deep and wise journey through Texas and childhood memories and if you are someone, who never lost faith in love...YOU'LL JUST LOVE THIS NOVEL!! Sean Patrick Flanery is one of a kind and you can feel in every word, how important "Jane Two" is to him...how much of his heart and soul he put in writing and narrating this story...DON'T MISS OUT!!

It was a very emotional experience listening to the author himself. Absolutely brilliant how Sean Patrick Flanery gives every single person a different voice. You will smile, laugh out loud and fascinated listen to Grandaddy’s wise messages. Be prepared: the grief in Sean’s voice will tear you apart.
Sean Patrick Flanery has an outstanding mastery of words and imagery. Jane Two is about life, learning from the mistakes you make, regret, becoming a man and a life changing love.
After reading and hearing this novel, you desperately need more! And you only want to listen to his voice!
