Deep, thought-proving, achingly beautiful story #audible #audiobooks

I am truly moved by this review of the audiobook edition of Home:

"Deep, thought-proving, achingly beautiful story"
Would you listen to Home again? Why?
I'll want to listen to Home many times because not only is Home is filled with wisdom and pathos, but it is beautifully written and narrated. Any son or daughter will want to listen to Home: it's about relationships and lessons as old as time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Home?
The moment when the daughter finds the silent movie projector in a cabinet, dusty and nearly forgotten. She knows this find will change her life forever, and so do we.

Have you listened to any of Kathy Bell Denton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first of Denton's narrations I have heard, and it impressed me enough that I will look for others.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book shakes the soul. Yes, there is laughter, but the giddy laughter of coming to terms with tragedy, with life, with death.

Any additional comments?
Home is a book that opens the soul. Reading it is mesmerizing. The story it tells is a story everyone should hear. I listened in one sitting the first time, and am looking forward to sharing it with my husband. For anyone who has lost a parent, or knows that loss comes soon, this book is a must. I recommend both this edition and the Kindle for those whose souls are aching, and those coming to terms with what life and death really mean.
