I ended up loving this book, though I have to admit that it started out a little slow for me. What kept me with it are the wonderful characters this author created. And then I just couldn't stop listening, the story then completely won me over. It's very important in a novel told in the first person that you like that person, or at least are willing to spend 12 hours of your like with that person. Kate is very believable, both in her virtues and her faults. I also like when an author writes a child, in this case a 5 year-old, who uses age-appropriate language and doesn't come off as a miniature adult.
Monica McKey does a great job with the voices. I especially liked her Jake Bloom, who is a very complex character and required some finesse to manifest. Mary K was also well voiced. I hope Ms. McKey plans on reading more audio books, as I think she is very good with the accents.
If you like car chases and bombs exploding DO NOT buy this book. It is very thoughtful and literary. The writing is beautiful in itself, but the story that writing conveys will take you to new and unexpected places. Enjoy.

I liked the story. I appreciated the author tackling such a sensitive topic. Unfortunately, the audio recording was irritating. Often, I heard too much breath & lip smacking. The voice/accent of Mary K was awful!
