Rich girl...Poor girl!
I have read all of Gerri Hill's books, now I am listening on Audio. 'At Seventeen' has a great story-line, and quite heart-rending. A story of rich girl Madison Lansford, and poor girl Shannon Fletcher, with some exceptional secondary, but not unimportant, characters in the form of Shannon’s mother, who is the housekeeper, and Madison’s young, and very wise, intellectual son Ashton. Madison is controlled by her mother who dominates her life, planning her marriage from a young age, and overwhelming her very essence. Madison's husband takes over the role after marriage. Madison and Shannon have loved each other since childhood but it has taken years for Madison to come to terms with who she is, and who she wants that it is heart-breaking the time that is wasted between her and Shannon. I really enjoyed this Audiobook and all of Gerri’s work. Gerri knows how to draw her readers into the story....Carly Robins was outstanding as narrator.
