Summary

Avalee Preston tries to silence the demons from her past and takes a chance at love with Ty Jackson, a man 12 years her junior and the brother to her long-dead fiance. As if she needs another complication in her life, his parents resent her, and he has grown children.

Is love really enough for them to build a life together or is she confusing it with a fairy tale? Just what is love anyway? Maybe love was never intended for her after all. Ty deserves better.

Moonlight Mississippi

Avalee's Gift by Linda Apple is an incredible listen. There are so many things I loved about the story and characters. Age doesn't matter in this book, nor does color. The author was incredible with the imagery, the descriptions, the details, and making some very endearing characters and relationships. I loved how self sacrificing Avalee was in this book. The storyline was very heartwarming. Terri England was magical bringing the characters to life. She has the best voice for a southern character.

Entertaining

Linda Apple is a relatively new author to me as is the narrator Terri England who again did a fabulous job of narrating the characters in a variety of voices and this added to my listening pleasure.

I love the absolute love and support these women give to one another as they each take a chance on finding love again.

This book is Avalee Preston and Ty Jackson’s story and one I really enjoyed. Not only is Ty, twelve years younger than Avalee, he is also the brother of her dead fiancee.
 
Can Avalee and Ty’s relationship withstand his parents resentment or are they destined to be alone forever?

This book drew me in and kept me entertained throughout.
