All she can be...

Free spirit...
Moving to Washington, D.C., to be with Griff should be the beginning of an exciting new chapter in Dory’s life. Yet there are adjustments, too, and sacrifices she never expected. And soon Dory must weigh the price of love against everything she hoped to gain….

I hate to be negative, but...

I hate to be negative, but...This book is going on my "return" list. I am not even sure that I can finish it. The characters are just "so-so" and as I am only a couple of hours into the listen, I am not engaged in the storyline at all. Joyce Bean is alright as the narrator, but her male voices tend toward a mono-tone, making me wonder if she is as bored as I am.
Definitely not a, "you had me at Hello" experience for me, and there are too many good books out there to call this credit worthy...sorry.

Outdated feminism

Read only if you like selfish loose women who drink and smoke and eat mashed turnips. I won't be suffering through another.
