Publisher's Summary

There is nothing extraordinary about Tucker O’Shay’s dreams.
Go to college. Become president. Fall in love. And pretend like he has enough time to get it all done.
Sixteen-year-old Sarah Miller doesn’t expect anything out of the ordinary when she begins her first day at the one-room-school house in her new hometown of Rocky Knob. But when she meets seventeen-year-old Tucker O’Shay - the boy with the fatal illness who volunteers to tutor her in algebra - she finds herself swept up in a friendship that changes the way she sees the world and a love that changes her life.

Absolutely Amazing!! A Must Read!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I already have! Gail's voice was more perfect than I'd expected. I found my self swept away in the story, something I wasn't sure would happen with an audiobook. It is full of heartwarming charm and sweet, gentle love. I've read it twice--three times counting this audiobook. And each time I sob my way through it. It's absolutely amazing! Definitely a must read!

What was one of the most memorable moments of This Quiet Sky: A Novella?

Whenever Sarah and Tucker had a moment-- they shared a look, he complemented her singing voice, she was blushing under his gaze-- that's the sort of thing that makes you heart melt.

Which scene was your favorite?

I won't be corny and say 'all of them' (though it's tempting!) But I'd say Tucker's birthday party. I love the love that is shown 'round the table, the family homey-ness that makes you want to curl up in a cozy chair and laugh along with everyone else.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I really don't know. Maybe something along the lines of "If you knew your days were numbered, would you be willing to love with all your heart?" I'm not all that great at taglines, sorry :P

Any additional comments?

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in return for writing an honest review (thanks again, Joanne!). This review contains my personal, honest opinions.

Touching Romantic Journey

I am still crying! This was a very touching story with some great life lessons. It tells the story of Sarah and her great love for a boy that was sick. They made every moment count. He has a profound impact on her life. It made me retrospect on my life and how much time I waste on trivial things. I love this story . The narration was flawless. I recommend this novella.
