This is a very well written and narrated story of love, rejection, redemption, and love. It is a sweet "Life" story that is based on coping with rejection. The story is true to life and the endearing characters are ordinary people who have hurts, fears, resentment and regrets. It really shows how love comes to everyone differently and how decisions and reactions (good or bad) can change the outcome of your future. Good lessons to live buy.
Put this one on your list when you are looking for a thoughtful story with great narration.
I would like to thank the author, narrator and/or publisher for giving me this audiobook at my request in exchange for my unbiased review ;-)

The author gives you a story inside a story of love lost with two men leaving town in different years for different reason losing the love they had. Two women who have always been there and they felt they always would. What these men found is they may have made the biggest mistake of their lives but young dumb we do not always see the road ahead and sometimes make the right choice for the wrong reason or the other way around. One thing for sure every road we take makes us the person we are today as you will see in this lovely story if one person changed one thing their lives would have changed then there wouldn’t be the people around they love today. Can one man and one woman learn from the other couples mistakes forgiving and forgetting the past? One thing is for sure there will be many misunderstandings that will keep you laughing out loud at these two as they butt heads over and over again seeing things as they see them not as they are. There will be times you will want to get out a tissue as the love of the older couple turn back the pages and relives years long ago and all they have loss.
Ms. Dougherty did a great job of narrating this audio it did take me a little time to get into her voice. I have also listened to other samples of her work and feel this voice was more for the time period and how things were done back then. This narrator has many different voices she uses in other audios you would never know it was the same lady which is truly amazing to me. In this audio her many different character voices were outstanding. Her male voices were as good as her female ones, you never have trouble knowing who is talking or what they are feeling. You will laugh with some characters and other you will feel their pain and sorrow. There will be times you heart will break along with the character leaving you wishing you could lend a shoulder. The narrator brings this out more so than if you were just reading she really brings the story to life as she leaves you chuckling at little Sharpie who is a delight. There are not any background noises just a clear fun audio. The narrators tones are even smoothly delivered there is no doubt you will get lost in her voice as she brings this audio to life. I look forward to listening to more from Ms. Dougherty.
What I really enjoyed in this story was Sharpie, Aunt Hen, the mystery of who was stealing, the head butting between Prudence and Gidry, the electric lighting and how they thought it might affect their land, the postcards added so much to this story I really laughed myself silly once I got over the shock. There are so many wonderful parts that the author and narrator give us. It really was a lovely audio with meaning and feeling. It has a lovely ending but I would have loved to have seen what happened with aunt Hen and who was Sharpies father.
The author writing is truly lovely as she twisting the story to give you humor and making you feel the characters pain. A lot is going on but you have no trouble keeping up. She spins a little mystery along with a little jealously which really pulls the reader in. Leaving you with the question of what is up with that wooden leg? lol Aunt Hen tells a wonderful story of their past and how it could affect Pru . She is a wise women who has a way about her that she can get the point across making you think it was your idea. What you get with this audio is a delightful listen which will leave you smiling, almost in tears at time, only to make you laugh out loud. It has a wonderful plot with wonderful characters that you can relate to and I feel sure in some way part of this most likely has happen to most of us. This is the first I have story I have read/listened to of the author and narrator. I look forward to picking up more of each of their works.
