Hello and welcome!
I just finished another great audiobook and let me tell you, it was an emotional wringer.
Love, Michael by Gina A. Jones is one that I could not stop listening to.
Twenty years ago, I spent our wedding night alone and was given a letter outlining the day and time of our divorce. Now it’s our daughter’s wedding day, and your smile tells me you’re here for more than to walk her down the aisle.
When we met, it was the summer of Shania Twain, the color of mocha iced lipstick, sand and sable perfume, and the summer I became a 17-year-old mother. But time has changed me.
So tell me, why are you back?
My review: 5 stars
Jill’s story broke my heart, mended it, to break it again, what an emotional wringer. I spent most of the book being mad at Michael and I am not sure I got to like him fully even at the end. It resonates with me because of my life experiences, I cried a few times, I mean really cried, so be prepared to have tissues handy. Jill is a beautiful soul and I am glad she finally got her HEA, it took me by surprise with whom, but she paid dearly.
The parallel running of the ‘now’ and the ‘then’ was interesting, it bugged me at the beginning but as I listened it made sense to do it that way. The advices at the end hit home, I am on a path to learn forgiveness and it is hard.
Thank you Ms. Jones. Your voice is a pleasure to listen to and loved the variations for each character, especially the one you gave Michael.
This was not my first from Ms. Jones and it will not be the last, I hope there will be more.
Check out her books at the website.
Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
