Run, Rose, Run is just exactly what I would expect from Dolly Parton, and I do have high expectations. You feel completely immersed in the country music world as you watch Annie Lee navigate the country music business. And of course, Ruth Anna reminds me of Dolly herself as she helps to mold the new singer. I listened to the audio book while I was reading the novel, and it really added to my appreciation of the book. Dolly Parton narrates the voice of country music icon Ruth Anna and Kelsea Ballerini provides the voice for Annie Lee. There is a real depth to the novel outside of the glimpse into the country music world that gives the book a greater meaning.
I thoroughly enjoyed Run, Rose, Run and hope Dolly has more novels in the works.
I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
