Mostly entertaining

I like this author but I didn't think it was her best. Once I got quite a ways into the book I mostly enjoyed it. I thought it dragged in the beginning and I was tired of the smoking and drinking and bad choices people made. But, after a while the characters started to grow on me and I wanted to see what would happen. If I could have given a 3.5, I would have.

Lack of Communication makes Resolution Difficult

Would you listen to Searching for Paradise in Parker, PA again? Why?

I was glad that Ms Radish did not make this all cute, and soft. It was frustrating, sad, and happy just like life. I love her books and each for a different reason. This is not like all the others, her characters are stuggling to find their way through life and questioning their furtures.

Have you listened to any of Barbara McCulloh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first Barbara McCulloh listen

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this while driving from Montana to Wyoming. I wanted to yell at both the wife and the husband for not being better communicators. They reminded me of many people I have met or known over the years.
