Nice bittersweet story, average performance,
Dry narration and slow plot
I found the narration dry and uninteresting. I kept drifting away and not being bothered to go back to where I was last paying attention and I just found there to be nothing in the story to hold my attention.
I don't think so. I would like to give her another go by physically reading her, however, as I've enjoyed short stories by her previously.
I have Anne of Green Gables narrated by her, but if I don't get along with that - I've already read it physically so I know I like the story - then I won't be listening to anything else narrated by Mary Sarah.
Disappointment. I really, really wanted to like it.
