could not finish. Narration was unbearable to listen too. Story line was not very interesting. had to return
absolutely loved it totally captivating what an amazing writer. orators excellent and made it very real.
I couldn't stop with this one. I thought it was put together nicely with the four narratives and told a good story. All four characters kept me interested. Definitely would recommend it. My only issue was that the female narrator did an excellent job with the female characters but her grown male impersonations made me nuts. I'm glad she didn't have many male lines!

While I did appreciate the storyline, I found this audiobook difficult to listen to, particularly due to the adult male characters' narration. The voices for Jamie, the psychiatrist, and several others were so low and gravelly it was painful to listen to.
The female voice did a decent job but the breathy ingenue quality did get tiresome.
I may have enjoyed the story more if not for the narration, but that was difficult to get past. I almost didn't listen past the 30 minutes or so, but eventually finished the book simply to find out what happened.
Chamberlain's characters are always thoughtfully written with many layers and realistic nuances, and this book was no exception. Just when I think I've identified a villain or saint, she throws in curves that make the character so much more lifelike and sympathetic.
This was not my favorite Diane Chamberlain novel, but it's hard to say how much the irritating performances influence that perception.
