I really enjoyed this period drama and listened all in one go whilst sewing. It follows the everyday lives of Wes and Sarah who live in Florida during the Cuban missile crisis. The pace is steady as past family dramas are revealed and interspersed with the real life drama in 1960s America. I felt it was well written and thoughtful with nice period details. The characters were well drawn without being bogged down by too much description. It kept me entertained and the narrator was excellent as blended into the background so much that it felt like Wes himself was telling the story. I look forward to more by this author.
...though it sounded much more interesting than it turned out to be. But considering all the drivel out there, it was not a waste of time at least.
I thought it would be a little more about the mother and daughter as well as Wes, but it was mostly about Wes, which turned out to be a good thing because the male audio narrator had such a deep voice that it was a little painful when he was doing the women's voices.
The structure also seemed a little random as to whose head we were in or whose story was being told.
Still, I wanted to keep listening and was never bored.
