I have enjoyed Anita Shreve's books but found this one to be predictable and with nothing new to say. It was not helped by a poor performance by the reader. She is unable to do male voices, so compensates but shouting whenever a male character is speaking.
This is a very good read, the story line a little pretictive but so endearing.
This story was way too slow and I was hooked in by the characters at all.
If you are looking for entertainment like 'The Pilot's Wife' in this book, you will be sorely disappointed. I love 'The Pilot's Wife,' and rate it one of my all time favourites. The characters in 'Rescue' are blandly constructed and the storyline just never takes off. Webster, the central character, is flat and is difficult to connect with. Basically, it's a bit of a love story without the endearing characters.
Narrator was fine.
All of them.
Don't waste your credits or time.

I loved this book. It took me a couple of chapters to embrace the accents of the characters but I'm Australian! Once I was hooked I just wanted to listen to the whole book and had to strictly limit my listening time as I was on holidays and didn't want to finish too quickly!
I loved the characters and just thought the story was a bit different!
I thought the voice narration was irritating at first but after chapter 2 I really loved them!
It did make me cry
Would definitely recommend
