Publisher's Summary

Summoned by the news of her dying father, Isabel Delilah Jones escapes from New York City, broken-hearted and disillusioned, back to her small Mississippi town. She is welcomed smack dab into a bizarre inheritance, a complex war for her affection between two former best friends, a dire haunting from an unknown child, and a deadly mystery that only she can solve. Yonder is the perfect Southern treat for fans of tangled romance, spooky mysteries, and down home cooking. Taking place in the 1940s on the cusp of World War II, Yonder promises a lovely glimpse of an era that was all too short.

Yonder was a great story

What did you love best about Yonder?

I'm a big fan of a thriller that gives you everything you need to figure what's going on without spelling it out for you. I didn't figure it out but at the end of the story my wife did. The nostalgia of the story as it moved through the years leading up to WWII was a lot of fun. My wife and I were both very impressed that the author read the story as the way that she did. I don't believe I've heard her read before, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that she was a professional audio book reader.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Normally my wife and I watch movies when we fly but we were super excited to listen to Yonder on our way to New Orleans recently. We were totally let down, however, when our rental car wouldn't play the book through the bluetooth. Fortunately, we had another long flight back.

Gothic Ghost Story with a Touch of Romance

If you could sum up Yonder in three words, what would they be?

Classic Gothic Romance

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Benjamin, he's a kind and caring man who does his best to do right by everyone.

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

This is her debut performance, I'll definitely be listening to more of her work in future!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was! I valiantly tried to, but 10 hours is a little much even for me...

Bad birthdays.

I hadn't expected to enjoy this audiobook as much as I did. Although it was a bit slow to get going, it built throughout to a skillful ending. I was glad I was listening to the audiobook, excellently narrated by the author.

Set during the build-up to WWII, the scene is set to follow Isabel Delilah Jones through a number of catastrophic birthdays and the fall-out from these dismal celebrations.
After the death of her mother, she is raised by a tyrannical father and runs away on her eighteenth birthday, to start a new life in New York. She doesn't return to her family home until the death of her father, who leaves a bizarre inheritance to his family and friends.
I loved the chapter where the inheritance is explained, I listened to it twice so as not to miss anything.

The characters were fascinating, especially Isabel and her two admirers, Charles and Benjamin. There is also a ghost, a young boy named Eli, whose identity we learn towards the end of the book. He is such a sad, bereft little boy, searching for his mother.

There are a few questions left unanswered and although I know there is a sequel where they may eventually be explained, this was still frustrating. Hopefully this will also be available on Audible, as I'd love to have it read to me by the author.
