I normally listen to fantasy or sci fi novels. This is story that really drew me in. Many books do not hold my attention and I don't finish them. Not this one; I really wanted to know how things worked out for the main character. The author also did a great job transporting you to this place and time. Unlike many modern novels, there is general background whisper of old-fashioned moralistic message that percolates and boils up occasionally.
There is a lot of repetition some times, with the characters thinking the same thoughts over and over again, which I suppose people do in a real life. I confess getting a bit annoyed once or twice, but overall I'm glad I stuck with it. I thought this was a very memorable book that you will not regret or forget.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a wonderful, historical narrative suitable for readers who enjoy character-driven stories. The disriptions of time and place, 1900 in Galveston, Texas, are beautifully and vividly written.
This is a sweet, sad, but realistically told story. I appreciated that the ending was right even if it wasn't nessecarily a happy one.
Any additional comments?
The narration is excellent, although the reader did seem to use one voice for all of the adult male characters. She did an excellent job of voicing the (2) female narrators, Katherine and Nan.
