I must admit I had no idea where the plot was going to go in the beginning but I was pleasantly surprised by how it unfolded to reveal a meaningful, funny, and authentic story. Journeying alongside Story Easton's failure of a life, she discovers that just when one thinks they’re at the end and nothing more can be done, all they have to do is let go and see what happens. Elizabeth Leikness masterly weaves the stories of all the characters to a magical end, leaving you feeling nostalgic and ready for new adventure at the same time.
I truly enjoyed Karyn O'Bryant's narration. She has a abundant range of voices that very with age and depth. I loved listening to her bring the story of Story to life.
I would recommend this book.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlastdotcom<br/><br/>I can’t say I was transported to another world while listening to this book. I can’t say it moved me as it apparently has others (see the 5 star reviews). What I can say is that it is a unique combination of events put together in such a way as to be on the edge of enthralling. I simply couldn’t stop listening.<br/><br/>Story Easton certainly grows and changes for the better. This is something that current writers are seeming to forget: that protagonists aren’t supposed to be the same at the end of the book as they are at the beginning. We read to escape, yes, of course. We read to peek into the lives of others. (BTW, Story takes that idea to the extreme by sneaking into the homes of others. We should understand that desire even if we never follow through.) Yet, ultimately, when we read, we should see that it is possible to learn, to grow, to change as a person. (OK, so the villains only seem to grow more villainous most times. That doesn’t always apply to the protagonist saturated in the well of goodness.)<br/><br/>But Story isn’t the only one who grows and changes. It’s as though the mere ghost of her presence affects those around her and vice versa.<br/><br/>I can say that this is one story fit for all ages. I can say that what the blurb teases, the book follows through without disappointment. I can also say, this book is worth more than the simply enjoyment a novel usually brings and there are depths there to explore.<br/><br/>It is possible that I will read/listen to this book again and find something I’ve missed which will enthrall me just a bit more.

This was an unusual story about a girl who needs to find something she can complete with success and a man she meets who fixes and usually forgets things.Narrated wonderfully by Karyn O'Bryant,we are taken thru a myriad of emotions and feelings that we all have experienced at some time.Story,our main character ,finds a story that is sadder than what she has lived thru and she wants to make it right for a little boy whose father has died.Sometimes confusing,always interesting,this is a good read!"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast or MalarHouse dot com"<br/><br/>
