Luka Krachec immigrates to the United States to find his cousin dead and his cousin’s wife hospitalized after a terrible accident. He meets Peter Montgomery at the funeral. The American seems nice and captures Luka’s attention when he offers to help him with his English.
Peter has spent most of his life believing he shot his father at age six, and his family uses his regret and overwhelming guilt to keep him under their proverbial thumbs. Peter does his best to make up for what he did by helping others, and agreeing to help Luka with his English yields something amazing when they hit it off.
When Peter opens up to Luka about what happened when he was a child, Luka senses some holes in the story and suspects Peter needs some help, so he approaches the head of the psychology department at the college where he works. Neither expects to open a long-barricaded door to secrets, denial, and family manipulation.
My View – Story:
Leisa reviewed One Good Deed in eBook format just over a year ago. You can find that review here.
One Good Deed is a feel-good story about an immigrant and
the second love of his life. It is sweet. It can tug your heartstrings. It all turns out okay in the end.
My View – Narration:
Michael Ferraiuolo is a new to me narrator who did an admirable job with the narration. When he slipped into the accent necessary for the Serbian characters, he is still able to be understood and helps get you into the mindset of the characters. How true is his Serbian accent? I have no clue. I didn’t try to compare it to other Serbian voices and it isn’t an accent I would pick up on readily.
I would certainly give him another shot in the future.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
