I am a pretty tolerant listener, and I am not sexist but I had to give up on this one. A bad combination of reader and author to me. Reader was just to light and airy. The story itself is ok, but not enough to carry you through the tedious and prolonged emotional internal dialogs and thoughts of all the characters. Some authors enhance their characters in this way, this one made me sick of them. The emotions were so contrived. No one really thinks, talks or acts like this. It read more like an idealistic romance novel for a 12 to 13 year old junior high girl. My wife got this for us to listen to together on a long car trip, and we both had had enough before the end.

Wish she wrote more often!!

The first book I listened to by Nancy Pickard was, "The scent of rain and lightning." It's still by far my favorite, but this one did not disappoint! She is a great storyteller and I only wish she'd write more!
