Gibbons makes it so easy to get into her stories, after a couple of pages I was lost in the culture of 1918 and I was not surprised at all reading about the treatment of Maureen by her husband Troop. The story has a great flow. These characters will stay with me a long time.
This is a really interesting women's story. It's a story of triumph over tragedy and how one can come to this point through the power of friendship and support. It was a great read. It is read by the author and at first her voice really irritated me, but I grew to accept the voice during the course of the story. It is an UNABRIDGED story on 5 CDs. I really liked this book!
