Her grandmother's batty twin sister turns up every day searching for something even she doesn't know how to identify, and Ella's parents refuse to return her calls. Worse, she finds trinkets from Stuart everywhere she goes, ghosts of a game they used to play. The leash she's kept on life's surprises for three years has snapped, and Ella will have to learn that the road to peace starts with letting go of control and that sometimes the best family you have is the family you build.

I am sorry that I did not pull the plug on this book and just return it. I kept waiting for something promised but never delivered. The worst part of this pointless and rambling story was the irritating narration. The character voices were so over the top that it was actually making me angry to listen. I would not listen to another title with this narrator nor would I be interested in hearing a sequel to this story. Just skip this all together.

Great Story/ snoozer narration
Really liked the story line & characters. I listen to 3-4 books a week. Narrator was really monotone with main character. I guess on purpose ??? She was much easier to listen to with other characters. Sadly, most of the story was from main character point of view. I got use to it because I really wanted to hear the story.

A wonderful story about love, loss and hope.
What did you like most about A Hall of Keys and No Doors?
I love that it that reiterates the knowledge that life can hurt almost as much as death. Emmie heart-achingly captures what it is like to truly experience love and the worst kinds of loss. She points out that even after the worst of tragedies - there is still magic, metaphorically and literally, to be found in the world that is left behind.
What other book might you compare A Hall of Keys and No Doors to, and why?
Somewhere Between Life and Death - Lurlene McDaniel. This story teaches the reader that even in the worst of times one can still have hope and find peace.
What about Amber Benson’s performance did you like?
Amber is a one of a kind narrator. Each character has his or her own identity. You know who is speaking. You feel everything that each character is feeling. Amber catches such genuine emotion - you can't help but cry, laugh, snicker and squee along with the characters.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Take your best girlfriends, chocolate, wine and tissues and prepare to laugh and cry.
Any additional comments?
Simply - thanks to the author for creating such a beautiful story.
