The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

A bookish observation – a reader’s journal: I’ve just finished listening to a story that gave me hours and hours of pure bliss. Kate Morton’s “The Distant Hours” is marvelous. It’s complete. The author, Kate Morton, gives us wonderful descriptions of the characters and their lives, taking us back to the south of England during World War Two. The story moves you along at a pace that worked well for me, the plot continually gave you just a little bit more, and then just a little bit more. Knowing it’s the journey, not the destination, is assisted by listening instead of reading to the story. I’m sure if I’d read it myself I would have missed a lot of the beautiful prose by rushing along wanting to know what happened next. The audio version makes you wait and allows you to hear every word.
