Audiofile Review: THE BOOKSHOP AT WATER'S END
The women who spent their childhood summers in a small southern town discover it harbors secrets as lush as the marshes that surround it...
Unfold a beach chair, put on your earphones, and listen to the ultimate Southern beach story. Four very different women, portrayed by four uniquely talented narrators--Andi Arndt, Dorothy Dillingham Blue, Shannon McManus, and Lauren Fortgang--explore topics ranging from female bonding and relationship issues to medical malpractice, addiction, trauma, and the longing for a place to call home. Two "summer sisters" who spent past summers vacationing together in a charming cottage are reunited there. Each woman faces her own demons, but their lives are sorted out through lengthy and ponderous discussions and social interaction. The story is highly emotional, and the assembled cast makes the setting and the characters very real to listeners. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
