• I know! I think that had me skeptical too, at first – that everyone loved it so, so much.. I think I have seen one review that was less than gushing, and the main issue there was that Louise herself really didn’t need to be a part of the story.And that’s probably right, but I didn’t find that part to be forced.

  1. I agree I initially didn’t have an interest in the book, but once I started it, I was drawn in. Love the time period, and how my initial impression of Cora completely changed over time. I was frustrated with her marriage too, but then by the end I felt an admiration for the way everything turned out. The real cherry on top of this one was the narration for the audio. Elizabeth McGovern is my new favorite voice.

    I was interested in the time period but didn’t expect to love the overall story as much as I did. This is one of the best audiobooks ever.

  3. I thought the book was going to be about Louise. I didn’t know much about her but I like stories set in 1920s. I was a bit surprised when I started listening and instead found the story about Cora. It’s one of my favorites this year.
