The emotional realities of two cousins who've lived separate lives in pole opposite worlds, now share this experience at the benevolent hand of the one's father. I was fully involved in development of the relationships between the cousins as well as fellow students; fascinated at the world Ms Stewart painted in vivid colour, scents, tastes and sounds that enfolded me in this Texas lifestyle of wealth and privilege. Unlike other coming of age stories that have depressed me over detailed negative experiences, the author conveyed issues with exceptional agility without dragging the reader down into negative responses. Much appreciated.
Like sipping sweet tea, this full bodied story revealed flavourful nuances and quenched this reader's thirst.
has now become appreciation.
A solid historical romance that concludes Ms Crandall's Everstone Chronicles with aplomb. Steady pacing, characters I wanted to know, authentic interactions and relationship development; for me it presented the whole reading package.
I was intrigued from prologue to epilogue.
Congratulations, Dawn, and every continued success !
Well acted, expressive and proper English accented characters create listening enjoyment. The recording is professional with clarity and crisp sound.
[Novel read by Joan Hickson also available]
Recording is a listening pleasure of actors capable of portraying the variety of characterizations, voice inflections, authentic accents, clarity of dialogue free of background distractions.
Reflection and discussion Q+A interaction follows each chapter, a prayer, and scripture references included when quoted.
Mysteries for me !
The rest of the week...anything goes!

Plus, I know I have a few ARCs needing attention by month end [which may get added to the mix!] But I do know to keep Dewey's ReadaThon choices easy reading to make it through as many of the 24 hrs I possibly can.
