If you could sum up The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane in three words, what would they be?
Funny, sad, delicious.
Who was your favorite character and why?
A tough one, but probably Aunt Midge, because she's kind of a catalyst for both of the younger women.
Which character – as performed by Reay Kaplan and Suehyla El-Attar – was your favorite?
Well, both Janey and Neen were pretty interesting characters.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I really enjoyed this and am pleased about that, as I had kind of suspected it might be mediocre.
Any additional comments?
Just...I wish the narrators had learned how to say "Damariscotta" before actually starting to read the book out loud (it's pronounced, in Maine, "Dam-Ri-Scott-A" -- a silent A after the Dam -- and they kept saying "Dam-A-Ri-Scott-A")--it was annoying at first but finally towards the end I just kept pretending it was because they were supposed to be from Iowa. I guess I got used to it, but for the first three-quarters of the book, it kept jolting me out of the groove.

What a great book and the narration was outstanding! I think Kelly Harms is going to be a very famous author. She has the ability to create such wonderful, unique, lovable characters, it reminds me of Fannie Flagg. I didn't want this book to end.
If you loved this book you might also like the Rose Gardner books by Denise Grover Swank.
