Listening to this, I felt that my own Mother had been plopped into the story and renamed. Ms Sullivan so pulled together several generations of women and respected each era they were from. I often try to do this also so I can understand younger people.
I read her first book and enjoyed it and was not disappointed with her second.
The narrator was not the best I have heard but the story line kept me reading any chance I could grab.

This book sounded like it had so much potential. What a disappointment! The main character is so unlikeable I was hoping she died early in the book (she doesn't). The other characters are stupid and uninteresting. But the worst part of the listen is the narrator. She speaks so slowly it sounds as if she is trying to read to a 2 year old, and the awful "Bwhosston"accent just grates on your nerves. DO NOT waste a credit!!

This was my first audiobook and I've never looked back. Easy to get in to but full of surprises along the way and with some really well drawn characters - not all of them likeable, but all totally believable and I love the way you're given a bit more information with each chapter to piece together the complex relationships between three generations of women (there are men in there too, but I think they play second fiddle to the girls in this book!) This is a fabulous holiday read (listen) - it's pretty long but I promise you won't be bored - in fact you'll have to stay awake because you'll be desperate to hear what happens next! Highly recommended.

nothing startling happened but the beautiful characterisation made it intriging to follow their lives. recommend
