Good story but poor narration
I loved the storyline and the characters but did not care for Mary Alice Monroe's performance. Her fake southern accent and her inconsistent pronunciation of "Mamaw" really took away from my listening enjoyment.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
someone who needs a sleeping aide
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
There wasn't really an ending, the story lines of characters were left open--almost forcing one to purchase Book 2 for completion.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary Alice Monroe?
Anyone - she is a good writer and should stick to writing. Reading was lack luster, comparable to psychology 101 in large college auditorium. Monotone. This past month I have listened to Catherine Tabor and Amy Rubinate either would have made this so much more enjoyable.
What character would you cut from The Summer Girls?
None, the women need to be expanded on and not so predictable. While listening not so much "Carson said" Dora said" etc...
Any additional comments?
Although wondering where the other sisters wonder, not sure I can listen to another book with same narrator.
