Seven months into the 2020 pandemic, life in my home community of Kingston, Ontario had settled into a manageable rhythm with our Canadian government having made what I considered to be wise and supportive decisions that enabled me, at 74 years of age, to establish a daily rhythm that though ‘much locked down’, allowed me to continue ‘getting on’ with many of my life choices. Though deeply grateful for my life, I found myself slipping into greater and greater emotional darkness. How might I lift myself out of the depths into which I was sinking, reconnecting with the positivity I previously had normally exuded? Thanks be to Louise Penny!!! The timing of the release of her latest work All the Devils Are Here: A Novel couldn’t have been more perfect for me! With my having read her previous 15 works, I chose to enjoy the newest storyline using Audible technology: listening rather than reading her words.! With narration adding to the incredible depth of Louise’s creativity, plot development, and organizational skills, I discovered an added perk this time ‘round: the dramatic flair of vocal interpretation resulting in even further enhancement of my enjoyment, definitely shifting my personal sadness to yet again a reason for celebration!!!

I couldn't put it down...

I loved the 'Audible' version of Lisa Wingate's 2020 release 'The Book of Lost Friends' so much that I decided to purchase the 'Kindle' version as well, in order to further bask in her sensitivity and writing excellence, so beautifully balancing tensions with problem solving and hopefulness. Earlier this day, though the sun shone brightly outdoors when I initiated the narrated version, I found myself too undisciplined to save any of the story line for another day. So creative is Lisa Wingate's approach to writing and so impressive is her research ahead of that writing that the excellence of her narratives quickly and fully capture the attention of her many readers, leaving her audiences wiser in terms of the history learned during the engagement with her texts. Brilliant organization! Excellent dialogue! In depth research driving ultimate outcomes that serve to brighten and enlighten! Put this one on your gift list for sure!

Beautifully written and narrated

So beautifully constructed and narrated, 'Before We Were Yours' had me putting everything aside that needed to be done in order to soak in the author's words and intentions, briefly enabling me to forget the challenges I personally have been facing, allowing me to give thanks for the course my life continues to take!

Jennifer Robson remains true to her love of history by weaving the realities of the end of World War I into a satisfying story format at the same time as balancing information and teachings, about the great difficulties faced by all those, victims of a world insanity, even well after its aftermath, when monies, clothing, medications, fuel and a roof over one's head had to be so carefully considered and managed in order to provide the very basics to all but the very well-to-do.
