Summary

After seven years of misery and abuse, it's all over - Hannah O'Malley is officially divorced. Hallelujah. It's like every Christmas in her life all rolled up into one glorious day. Not only does Hannah get to keep her grandmother's spacious old house, but she has full custody of her sparky five-year-old daughter. All Hannah has to do now is put the past behind her.

And now that she's free, she wants to make a difference. With the help of her warm, close-knit circle of friends - including her high school crush, Travis Wilson - Hannah begins turning her home into a safe house for other women who've endured the pain she's known. But even as life and laughter return to Hannah's home, she's haunted by the memory of her dangerously unstable ex. With a second chance at love on the horizon, Hannah must face down her past in order to let the sunshine back into her life.

lovely book, thought provoking

i loved this book, felt for all the characters within the first half hour of listening, it ended before i wanted it too and it has left me wanting to know more, all loose ends were tied up, but not closed so there could be another made. it is a very sensitive subject, and might not be everyone's cup of tea, but really shows how you can come out the other end. would highly recommend if you like a listen that tugs on your heart strings

What a great book

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about friendship, the community spirit courage and of course love.
This book was not only well written as can be expected from this author but it was well researched.
I could relate to the main characters story n I hope it would give strength, hope n courage to people going through something similar
I hope it will also give other readers the drive to talk to our girls about the signs to look out for because there are a lot of them.

Read to the end....but....

I kept waiting and wanting this book to take off, but it never did. There was no suspense, no climax, no sense of engagement. The character development was shallow. The plot was sophomoric. Shophie, the child, was annoying. The topic of domestic abuse could have been explored in so many more ways that would engage the reader and give a more realistic view of the associated struggles of domestic abuse. This book depicts characters who may have been victims, but other than that are perfect. It starts with a problem and ends in a fairy tale"happy ever after". The flow and pace is excruciatingly plodding. I have never written such a negative review about anything.

Slow pace read

I will start off by saying, I love reading Carolyn Brown books, of course there is a but. This read was so slow, by the eighth chapter the book was still snoozing along. This book was not my cup of tea, if I wasn't listening to it at work, I don't think I would had finished it. I even tried to get into the narrator, but it appeared as if she was reading the book and ended each sentence with an abrupt ending, I not impressed.

Sweet story

Classic cheesy romance, but definitely delivers on the heartwarming and hope giving element. I would recommend this if you're looking for a book that is easy to follow and enjoyable.

Lullaby sky

A wonderful story and the actress who skillfully created the ch aracters for, me that I instantly fell in love with each one and looked forward to listen to them having real life problems and rooting for the good guy to get the girl of his dreams and vice versa

I kept waiting for something to happen.

What disappointed you about The Lullaby Sky?

It was predictable, sappy and all of the characters were one sided. It was odd that the men seemed to be feminized. All of the death threats and talking about killing people were unnecessary and seemed out of character for the women in the story.

What could Carolyn Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

more character development; more of a description of personality characteristics that lead to abuse

What didn’t you like about Brittany Pressley’s performance?

I would honestly have to say she did all she could with a boring story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Lullaby Sky?

some of the cute child scenes

Good read

This was overall a pretty good story, although it lacked just a little bit of suspense, but that's just my opinion. It was a great idea of a story, and I loved that Marty's 2 women came to get to know each other, even under bad circumstances. Wished the story had a little more suspense, but over all a good book.
