Couldn’t stop listening

Loved this audio book! It is definitely up in my top 5, highly recommend to everyone who’ll listen to me.

The story kept me gripped, from Georgia and how her happy ending would pan out to that of her lovely gran’s.

If you’re looking for the romance novel of the decade, then you have it right here.
I cried, I beamed with happiness and I was furious with anger and frustration. Rebecca Yarros gave me it all in this book.

Good

The English accents!! Listen if you can’t do an English accent just don’t, please for the love of god. Both?! Both of them! it was awful and nearly ruined the book. I found it hard to concentrate when they were doing the awful English accents. I have no problem listening to a narrator who doesn’t change accents or put on voices for characters. What I cannot abide is bad accents, if you can’t do it, don’t. I actually can’t believe someone signed off on this it was honestly embarrassing.

Book was good maybe a new narrator or a hard copy would be advisable. Once I got used to the jarring awfulness of the accents it was a good read.

Wow! A story to end 2021!

This is such a romantic book. it has all the feels and is without doubt A MUST READ!

I don't generally like WW2 books but this one had such love, poignancy and everything wrapped up so beautifully.

It had all the feels, the people you want to hate, succeed and ultimately a book with an excellent story.

if you are looking for a love story, then look no further! Just terrific and a great way to see out 2021!

Emotional And Beautiful Romances

This book was an amazing journey, two separate yet connected love stories, one told through letters and experiences during WW2 and the other during the present with the great granddaughters life, a truly unique and wonderful book.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Let me tell you what an EMOTIONAL experience this story was. The narration was absolutely phenomenal, perfectly capturing the two storylines, bringing tears and joy with each chapter. I felt as if I was in war torn England with Scarlett and Jameson, the worry and heartache over whether either would survive the unthinkable air raids and bombings and whether love could keep them together. I knew from the blurb that heartache was on the horizon but holy hell my heart was not prepared for what I experienced. I ended up having to read a few scenes in the book before listening because the anxiety was real. Their story is unforgettable, such a beautiful yet gut wrenching love in the time of war.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Then on the flip side we also have the love/hate relationship between Scarlett’s great granddaughter, Georgia and Noah, the man tasked to finish Scarlett’s last story, her own love story. Noah definitely stole my heart, wanting to give Scarlett’s story the ending it deserved, the fact that he was the romantic over Georgia had me swooning. Watching them fall in love was the perfect balm to my heartache over the emotions of the war. Their banter and love story was the happiness I needed. And OH BOY, Georgia’s mother evoked a few moments of me yelling out loud at her, she was the perfect “villain” of the story along with Georgia’s ex husband, Georgia really deserved the world after putting up with them. This story is definitely one I recommend experiencing for yourself, it truly touched my heart.

Touch my soul

You know the kind of story that you absolutely love and you can't do anything but rave about it. This story's so much more. It touch my soul. The Story is surprising I will not give it away just to say you will be very surprised. it is two love stories in one. Narrators did a excellent job. I will tell you that you need to pay super attention if you listening to this in not following along in the book because of the back-and-forth of present and past but it's such a wonderful story.

Beautiful love story

This was a really beautiful love story. It was so wonderfully written; how the story takes us to the World War II era in England and the love story of this beautiful, smart British woman and this equally wonderful, loving American man. Their love is unexpected and explosive and just too much, until it is no more. At the same time we learn about her great-granddaughter and her own love story, as in parallel with so many similar situations. Wow! I cried a lot! And definitely loved it! I need more books by this author in my life. This was my first one.

A true romance, and a twist. Wow.

I absolutely loved this story. It's so nice to read about true, clean, heart-stopping romance. You can just feel it, like you're the one Jameson is wooing. I wish wooing was still the norm in today's society. But, boy, as other reviews have stated, there is a bit of a shocking twist later in the story....as things progressed and I wondered what would happen, where it would take me - I absolutely didn't see that coming. A wonderful, romantic, love story - moving, sensual, heartwarming, heartwrenching.

The Things We Leave Unfinished

The Things We Leave Unfinished is such a fantastic book! I love the way Rebecca Yarros weaved the past with the present. This is definitely a top read (and listen- because I enjoyed the book so much that I needed to listen to it another time) for 2021!

Tim Paige and Carly Robins were perfect as Jameson, Noah, Scarlett, and Georgia!

Totally unpredictable!

Well… I really didn’t see that coming!

When ever I pick up a Rebecca Yarros novel, I never know if I’ll be crying, laughing or having a hit of the warm and fuzzies… and that is what I love about her books!
Yet again, I was not disappointed.

Very engaging, wonderful story

I listened to this book on a road trip and loved every minute. I’m a fan of both narrators who did a masterful job of bringing the characters to life; both the main characters and many other minor ones. Since it switches between two time periods, it’d be easy to get confused but the narration is so well done, I had no trouble following it. The characters are well developed and there is a lot of beautifully written and performed emotion that hits all the feels. There is even a twist or two that I didn’t see coming. It’ll definitely be a re-listen for me. I loved it!

Blown Away!

Blown away at this story! Full tears in my eyes and love in my heart for this creation.
Rebecca Yarros is an amazing author! The detail in her storyline is impeccable and not often found for that time period! War can be a hard topic for any author to tackle but to construct a romance in the darkest of parts makes the reader see the compassion and severity in what people went through.
Carly Robins and Tim Paige, a job well done! Always a pleasure to hear your take on the emotions the author is wanted portrayed.
On to the next!
