I love Karen Kingsbury'books, but of all of them, this is perhaps my least favourite. I found it a little more depressing and less uplifting from most of hers, although I'm pleased that there is a second and third book in the series. I'm looking forward to listening to them, and am hoping that there is a bit more of a positive feel to it as the story progresses.
The narrator was good, with appropriate inflection, and was easy to listen to.
I really didn't like the narrator, she was far too old to be the character. The story was good at times, but I didn't like how it progressed.
