Publisher's Summary

No one expects Evalyn Brewer to return to Quail Crossings from California married with a child, and that includes Evalyn. She had dreams of Hollywood stardom, not dirty diapers and pigs. But when Robert Smith, a country boy from head to toe, offers her and her daughter a chance at a normal life, reputation intact, Evalyn can't help but accept. Little does Robert know, Evalyn is keeping a huge secret. While Evalyn's family members deal with prejudice in 1940s Texas, fertility, changes of the heart, and even a ghost come back from the dead, Evalyn must fight for her family or lose everything she has grown to love.

Good Story

What did you love best about Return to Quail Crossings?

Dovey and Gabe's love story


What other book might you compare Return to Quail Crossings to and why?

I have a hard time comparing books since each one has its own unique flavor. This story was filled with twists and secrets that made it stand on its own.


Have you listened to any of Talmadge Ragan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first time listening to her but she did a great job.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The renewing of the vows in the orchid.


Any additional comments?

I got this ARC via audio book boom. I enjoyed the way the author treated the things that happened during this time period. She did not sugar coat the racism that existed nor did she paint an inaccurate picture. The several love stories that were woven throughout the book gave it more depth.

So easy to listen to...

The narration was spot on, it made this book so easy to listen to that I almost forgot that I needed to go to sleep. There are a couple of mistakes that weren't edited out so the audio repeats briefly a couple of times but they're short and don't have much impact. The flow of the narration is great with goof pacing and phrasing. The character voices all come out really well and you can tell who is talking from the voice.

The story is excellent, it seems very realistic and the characters are all well developed and lifelike. There are a few twists and secrets that are revealed along the way which keeps adding complexity and further interest into the story.

I was completely wrapped up int he story of Evalyn, Joy and Robert, the story and character interaction are beautifully written.

This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
