by Jojo Moyes, 2012, Audiobook narrated by Susan Lyons, Anna Bentink, Steven Crossley, Alex Tregear, and Owen Lindsey, Penguin Audio
An interesting story about a young lady who doesn’t have much going for her in her life takes on a caregiver job for a paraplegic who is intent on committing suicide.
The characters in this novel are interesting although sometimes a bit stereotyped. The primary character has qualities that far exceed her background and upbringing, allowing her to do amazing things. Her sister is much more sophisticated and smarter, but she has made bad choices in her life. The patient’s mother is unemotional in her dealings with others. The father is a womanizer.
The story is interesting, the writing is good, the reading is excellent. Altogether, not a bad experience.
