Wow, what an amazing book! It was very well written, and held my interest throughout. The three narrators on this audiobook did an excellent job, to boot.

Part of what intrigued me about this book were the three characters, and how they were so different, but had deep common bonds as well. Growing up in the Deep South, I was born around the time that this book happened, so I was intrigued by the history of the setting of this book, and how the historical events affected the characters in the book. Since I've been a Junior League member, and one of the main characters was a Junior Leaguer, I was also interested in how that organization played a role in the storyline.

I would definitely recommend this book! The audiobook was a long one, but well worth ithe listen!
