Any additional comments?
This book is hard to categorize, but it definitely kept my interest throughout. It is not really a mystery, though a lot of mysteries unfold. It is not really a romance, though several romances are central to it. It is not really a thriller, though it is full of excitement and twists and turns. It is the story of numerous lives in a small Southern town, that interconnect through various twists of fate, with each ripple in one person's life creating a tidal wave in another person's life. Before you realize it, you get drawn into the lives of these people, and become a fascinated voyeur.

The narrator moved the story along with perfect pacing and emotion, and created a unique voice and personality for each of the characters. It really brought the book to life! The audiobook version is definitely worthwhile, as the total is greater than the parts.
