I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Jimmy and Suzy through the series of letters.
The hero Jimmy because of his approach to different situations
No but I would again as I thoroughly enjoyed her narration
There were several moments that moved me.
If your looking for something different to listen too, these beautiful sweet love letters are a worthy listen but tissues will be needed
