Love, Loss and Life In Between Book Review
Love, Loss and Life in Between is ten short stories about life essentially. Each one different but also the same in that they share the feelings and thoughts we all have at one point or another. A Cat-Shaped Hole reminded me so much of my mother because I often wonder if she is as lonely as the lady in the story. I enjoyed each of these stories some more than others if I am being honest.
Rogerson has written stories that we all can connect with in some way. They are a good mix of genres and would be perfect for a commute or beach listen.
Sandie Keane did a wonderful job of narrating these stories. I loved her voice and was able to get lost in the stories without having her voice over power them.
About the Narrator
Having attended Drama school in Liverpool as a teenager Sandie moved into a variety of jobs varying from Hotel Management/Merseyside Police/Motherhood to name just a few but for 25 years she taught worldwide as a Pilates Tutor Trainer.
During lockdown Sandie’s interest turned to Audiobooks and it was from there she embarked on her own journey as an Audiobook Narrator.
