    The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event - but in reality, things are far from perfect. While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling.

    Robin says: "A good summer read (although slightly flawed)"
    "Another great, easy read by Elin Hilderbrand!"

    If you could sum up Beautiful Day in three words, what would they be?

    fun, light, entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Margo...the story was told from her point of view, and I found it interesting reading a book about a wedding that wasn't from the bride's point of view.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's a great reader...she's not monotone, which some other readers can be, and she does all of the different voices so well. The tone she used for Margo really 'matched' the description of Margo I would've had, had I read the book.


    If you could take any character from Beautiful Day out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would love to talk to Helen Oppenhimer and ask her WTF? Haha!

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved each of the story lines of this book, and how justice was served at the end. As with his other books (Fall of Giants and Winter of the World), he does a great job of describing each story line, and then beautifully brings them all together. I'm not really one for medieval stories, but this is really a story of love, perseverance, and the good and bad sides of the church.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There's too many, but if I had to pick the most significant (not necessarily my favorite because it was gruesome), it would be the demise of William Hamley. Second would be the love story between Jack and Aliana. I loved how she traveled through Europe to find him...very romantic!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it took me several weeks to listen to this book. I listened mostly during my commute, and I'll say, there were times when I felt like I could've kept driving!

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Ken Follett follows up his number one New York Times best seller Fall of Giants with a brilliant, pause-resisting epic about the heroism and honor of World War II, and the dawn of the atomic age. Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and World War II.

    Naomi says: "History told by a master storyteller"

    What did you love best about Winter of the World?

    I loved the story line, and I have to say, it really came to life under the narration of John Lee.
