A Brilliantly Told Story of Family and Life

Sunday Wild Child was one of the best audiobooks I've had the pleasure of listening to. It's about living the life you have and not letting it live you. Survival through poverty and illness. This story was about raw (unprocessed) love and sheer will. I loved the character of Dixie Jo and also her mother Bonnie. I loved the alternating chapters of each one's parallel journey through decisions, outcomes, and heartfelt honesty. I'd highly recommend this audiobook by Ethel Cook-Wilson.

Reagan Boggs's performance was exquisite. She nailed the tone of the story with perfect voice inflections along with sounding exactly the way one would expect Dixie to sound. Bonnie's character as well. This was an excellent story.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this honest review.
