An interesting perspective

Any additional comments?

I felt engaged by this book as I listened but I was left with a sense of sadness when the story was over. Survival at any cost is hard to do and very hard to hear about.

An Amazing Story & Narration

I felt as if I was sitting across the table from Edith listening to her relive her story with all of its emotion, stress, and fear. I had read excellent reviews of the book and am so glad that I listened to it instead of read it. The narrator made each character's voice so true and unique. Each sigh and pause was perfect. I could hardly stop listening.

You will not be disappointed!
