Synopsis

A girl who feels nothing; a boy who sees shadows and hears what others cannot; a baby without license to be born; a deaf teenager and scientific savant; offensive people; a general who passed law to hunt, imprison, and kill them all.

Where do they hide when the sub-nations of the United States draw their own lines in the ground that dictate which people get to be oppressed and who gets to be offended?

The Salvo Cartel built the tunnels to help them escape, to aid those with mental ailments, those who question, those who refuse to conform, gays, Christians, artists, people with scruples, and other deviants.

Do they flee to Salvo's underground cities, with eyes set on a grander safe place?

Where do they go when Lady Liberty douses her light?

Perhaps the same place she's been pointing her torch towards ever since she stepped atop her pedestal and realized at once that one day she, too, would be told to shut up.

4.5 Stars

This audiobook was provided by its author, Jenny Hale, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Thanks, Jenny!

Hannah Townsend has the perfect job at New York magazine. Excited to surprise her boyfriend Miles Monahan for a much needed vacation with tickets to Barbados, her cell phone rings. Instead of taking a perfect vacation, she got a call that her grandma wasn’t doing well and she needed to high-tail it back to Tennessee. Right after the devastating phone call, Hannah searched for Miles only to be confronted with an unpleasant surprise. Not only was she not going on vacation, she was now single. Could her day get any worse? Very likely, considering all the flights are now grounded due to bad weather. Upset with everything going wrong in just minutes, she collided with someone from her past. WIll Liam McGuire be the one to save Hannah from all she encounters when back in Tennessee?

Melie William did an extraordinary job related the fiction story of The Memory Keeper. Her soothing voice created the scenes perfectly. Melie made the fictional story come alive as if we are watching a movie. Her voice is clear, precise and soothing. Great for a female point of view narration. No, she does not change to do the other character voices. The protagonist Hannah is distinct, some others have an accent, but for the most part she relates the story as reading it to her audience. I truly enjoyed being introduced to Melie’s narration and will now be on the lookout for other audiobooks by her. I love the character Georgia’s slight accent. I enjoy the continuity of the story. Never had to second guess who was speaking. No background noise and clear audio background. The production was incredible. Everything flowed with no distractions. Melie did an excellent job speaking clearly and making the story enjoyable to listen to.

I recommend The Memory Keeper for a sit back, relax and feel good listen. The book translated well into audio form. The author did an amazing job writing this heart-filled romance. Whatever you preference is, you will enjoy the story. One does not overpower the other. If you are a reader that loves to listen and follow along on the print version, this is the perfect book for that! Happy reading. Melie Williams and Jenny Hale seemed to be a great match for making The Memory Keeper come alive. I hope they work together in the future.
