The Fifteenth of June by Brent Jones was a good read. Drew Thomson finds himself haunted by his past and living a constant struggle. This sometimes took dark twists and turns that the reader will never expect. I really enjoyed reading this book.

Moving. Sad. Eventually Hopeful
The Fifteenth of June is outside my comfort zone of usual reading / listening. It isn't an easy listen. The protagonist, Drew, isn't easy to like, yet I identified with him. I understand the impact of an event that has the power to negatively impact an entire family for the time frame of almost a generation. And how eventually, we find how to overcome it and not be destroyed.
There are many. The culmination of the family's and individually, Drew's letting go is a strong moment in the story.
I haven't read the print or ebook edition. Wyatt Baker does an admirable job! A strong listenable voice, an ability at dramatic narration without being cartoonish. A good choice for this work.
I mentioned that I identified with the book. And I titled the review to represent my reaction.
This is well thought out and well written. The narration was excellent, professional.
I appreciate those attributes.
It was entertaining and worth the time investment involved.
