First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen
The Waverly’s were always considered a bit….
Claire went from a successful catering business to making candies that seemed to have taken the town by storm. Everyone wants the candies and Claire finds that the candy business has slowly taken over every sweet moment of her life.
Sydney has a successful hair stylist shop which is ever-growing in clients, yet Sydney really longs to have a child with her husband.
Evanelle gives people strange gifts but finds her own health failing and she must make changes in her lifestyle.
Sydney’s daughter Bay has a gift of making things just right and is always on the decorating committees at school. Now she has given her heart away to a boy who does not seem to want what she has so openly given.
And there is the Waverly apple tree, the tree which all the Waverly’s watch… waiting… for first frost.
I really enjoyed First Frost on audio. Narrated by Susan Ericksen, whose voice lent a mystical musical tone to the book that was most appropriate. Listening to First Frost was thoroughly enjoyable, almost relaxing as the story unfolds so smoothly.
Each of the women’s story line in the book is engaging. Often when a story unfolds this way I find that I tend to enjoy one story line over the others and rush through to get to the parts I like. This is not the case in First Frost. Each character lends itself to the story building off the others.
Worth a listen.
