I listened to this book, read by Linda Lavin. Addie Baum was born in Boston in 1900 to Russian immigrants. The premise of the story is that Addie is telling her life story to her granddaughter Ava in 1985, not long after Addie has celebrated her 85th birthday.
It was a story of family, friendship and life and was an enjoyable book that was easy to listen to. Rocked my world? No. Waste of time? Not at all.
