Sintesi dell'editore

At 32, Faith Frankel has returned to her claustro-suburban hometown, where she writes institutional thank-you notes for her alma mater. It's a peaceful life, really, and surely with her recent purchase of a sweet bungalow on Turpentine Lane, her life is finally on track. Never mind that her fiancé is off on a crowdfunded cross-country walk, too busy to return her texts (but not too busy to post photos of himself with a different woman in every state). And never mind her witless boss, or a mother who lives too close, or a philandering father who thinks he's Chagall. When she finds some mysterious artifacts in the attic of her new home, she wonders whether anything in her life is as it seems.

"Narrator Mia Barron's spot-on timing brings out the best of the smart dialogue and understated humor in this story of contemporary life for the 30-something crowd.... Barron's delivery of quirky characters and multiple plotlines contributes to this entertaining audiobook." ( AudioFile)

A little slow...

This is a cute, predictable and entertaining story. It got better as I listened and at times, made me laugh out loud.

Love the characters and narration

Faith and Nick will become your best friends by the end of the book. They are smart and witty
and the narrator delivers the perfect pitch for all the crazy happenings on Turpentine Lane. I wish there was a sequel because I’ll miss the hilarious matter of fact quips.

A Delightful Book

If you read The View From Penthouse B, you know that Elinor Lipman’s books are full of interesting characters, good prose and a plot that keeps you thinking about the book and wanting to get back to it; thoroughly enjoyable.

Easy, Light Read after “The Four Winds!”

After finishing The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah I needed a really easy read. This fit the bill. Nothing earth shattering, silly little story with a bit of mystery thrown in. Still enjoyed it.

A slice of life

Yes I know that most people don’t live in a house with a murder mystery, but that aside it was a fun peek through the curtains into someone else’s very regular but still eventful life. Worth the time to listen.

Just Say No

I tried but I could not get into this and didn’t finish it. I wanted to like it, but there was nothing to grab onto.

Easy and forgettable

Story was all over the place. I never knew what the true plot was, still don't even after discussing with my book club

Fun, Clever, Enjoyable

Finally, a book about characters that are real! Faith begins as a such a self-doubter but through her work, home, and family adventures develops into a mature and secure person. Her mother, cleverly voiced by the narrator, was the cherry on top. Minus one star for truly unnecessary F words. These characters are well educated professionals who understand the nuances of language-- the author does them an injustice with such words. Overall a fun read. I will look for more of Elinor Lipman's work.

An absolute joy

I heard Elinor Lipman mentioned on a books podcast, and looked for her here on Audible. What a fabulous writer!
Funny, perceptive, warm and a terrific story teller.
On Turpentine Line is a total page turner and as soon as I finished it, I wanted to buy everything else Lipman has written. But - horror! - this is the only one of hers available on Audible. I'm astonished. She has such an impressive back catalogue. Why aren't all her books here?
