This book was a joy to read, even while tackling important topics of grief, longing, and loss. At times it is frustrating because of the suppositions made by the characters, but it is well worth your time and credit.
Characters assume things about others, then are so disappointed why things are not the way they thought. Sometimes this is good, sometimes not so much.
I am glad the author chose not to go the route of complete cliche; it would've made me return the book if she had!
I loved these characters, wanted to give many of them comforting hugs, and then in the next breath tell them to get out of themselves.
Maybe this is why I liked the book so much; the characters made me feel something. Perhaps that was its biggest drawback, as the book didn't really GO anywhere.
A third narrator fr Joseph's portions might have been a good idea as well, but that opinion is my own.

Where does Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is one of my favourites. I have recommended it to all my female friends.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What does Kathleen Gati and Kate Reinders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I normally do not like separate readers but I really enjoyed the two voices telling the story from two separate point-of-views.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Many...but I do not want to give anything away. Be warned that you will be hungry while reading this book with all the cooking scenes. Luckily the recipes can be found on the author's web-site.
Any additional comments?
I really did not know much about the motivations and problems of "cutting" before reading this novel.
