Publisher's Summary

On the eve of her wedding in 1978, Shay Garrett peers into the antique mirror in her family's longtime home, the famous Victorian Gingerbread House on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado and falls unconscious only to wake in the body of her own grandmother Brandy on the eve of her wedding in 1900. The virginal Brandy, in turn, awakes in Shay's body in 1978 to discover herself pregnant.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Having a different reader. I hated the way it was performed, the reader was simply awful.


How could the performance have been better?

Having someone else read the book. I don't have anything positive to say about the performance. I am not a negative person & I try to find good in everything, however I have nothing good to say about this performance.


Any additional comments?

I read this book many years ago and I loved it. I have since lost my copy and when I saw Audible had it available I was very excited. My excitement immediately turned to disappointment and anger that I wasted a credit. I normally listen to a sample before purchasing , however I let my excitement at finding the title take over and purchased without listening. I don't normally take the time to write negative reviews , but this is so bad I felt like it was my civic duty to warn others.

A beloved book, not so great recording

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I remember reading this book when it was first printed, and since it is not available in electronic format I was looking forward to the Audible version of an old favorite. Alas, there is a lot of background noises that makes me wonder where it was recorded, and many errors in the narrative. Still, I will most likely listen to it again, because I enjoy the story.
