Don’t Miss a Thing
I enjoyed this story very much. The subject of women loving women is treated with a great deal of empathy. It is the kind of story, perhaps like Memoirs of a Geisha that is very beliveable and worth listening to again. I found the narration entertaining enough. The story line needed a story board to keep the lines straight. This book is rich with detail of life in the late 's in Japan. I was transfixed by the detail of the clothing, culture, and tradition of a country that is magical.
I lived in Japan in and as a child. This book helped me to visualize life in another time period. I went to the computer often to get more information about the lifestyle of the Japanese people. It is fascinating. I read this book as a teen. All these years later I still love it! The story is so well written and narrated that I felt as though I had been transported back through time and was seeing, hearing and smelling everything around me.
I am sad that the story has come to an end but it is one I know I will be revisiting. Get Your Free Audiobook. The Teahouse Fire. Written by: Ellis Avery. Narrated by: Barbara Caruso.

Hal Only girl talk Women interest me, but listening to the smalltalk of two young women, and nothing else, was boring.
