it was amazing
bookshelves: narrated-or-to-narrate
Read in January, 2011

I loved a lot of things about this book and was honored to have been able to do the narration for the audio. I was reading Gail Collins' When Everything ChangedWhen Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present at the same time which put a lot of the history in this fiction in context. I loved the changing of perspectives between the four women, the truth and depth of their (sometimes difficult) friendships. I felt the moral and ethical issues through their struggles and pain. These characters were about ten years older than I am and it was really interesting to experience the world through their eyes.

Mom Taxi Julie You did a good job with the voices of the different characters :)

Thank you! I worked hard to keep them clear, but it was a challenging one, as they are all the same age, all educated. I also took a risk with this by attempting to differentiate the narration as well, since it is in the first person (with Meg's blessing). So glad you thought it worked. What a lovely book, huh?


Jami Collier I really enjoyed Wed Sisters, but I just couldn't get into this one


Karen White Some people have had generational problems with it. That is, it connects more to their mom's generation. She's writing a Wednesday Daughters I think!


Jami Collier HOPE SO
