Barefoot: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue and the characters' emotional arcs.

Visiting Nantucket for the summer, three women seek peace and comfort as they cope with the challenges in their lives - from marriage, infidelity, and the mayhem of motherhood to scandal, tragedy, and illness.

Three women - burdened with small children, unwieldy straw hats, and some obvious emotional issues - tumble onto the Nantucket airport tarmac one hot June day. Vicki is trying to sort through the news that she has a serious illness. Her sister, Brenda, has just left her job after being caught in an affair with a student. And their friend Melanie, after seven failed in-vitro attempts, is pregnant at last - but only after learning that her husband is having an affair. They have come to escape, enjoy the sun, and relax in Nantucket's calming air. But into the house, into their world, steps 22-year-old Josh Flynn.

Barefoot weaves these four lives together in a story with enthralling sweep and scope - a novel that is as fun and memorable and bittersweet as that one perfect day of summer.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Great beach listen

I’m revisiting Elin Hilderbrand’s books on audio. The female narrators who read her books are top notch, able to do multiple different voices in both genders and of different ages so dialogue sounds different. The narration elevates my enjoyment of the stories and allows me to overlook things that might bug me reading printed word.

Hilderbrand and I have different ideas of “good relationships” from friendships, to family to romance. Her healthiest relationships are parent/child. I didn’t understand the friendships in NANTUCKET NIGHTS. The friends didn’t seem to like each other much. Antonia was so closed off and gave nothing to the others. Val and Kayla seemed more compatible, but as the saying goes, with friends like Val, who needs enemies. I think we were supposed to like Kayla’s husband, but he was such a misogynist, ordered her around and she just followed.

I’m not sure why I enjoyed this book so much, but I did.

Skipping

There were a few areas of the book that skipped.

Climax was a bit anti-climatic.

annoying background music

The background music was super annoying, as were the dramatic pauses. The baby voice for Blaine was perfectly awful. I love Elin Hilderbrand's books and have read many. The story was good but....
