    When a widowed rancher hires a housekeeper to help with his three young sons, he finds her to be cheerful and competent. Yet she is concealing a colorful and infamous past. Filled with humor and hardship, this novel sings with what the author calls "a poetry of the vernacular". A finalist for the National Book award, Ivan Doig, who has published 11 books, has been hailed as the "West's preeminent literary novelist" by the Denver Post.

    Rick Just says: "Wordplay"
    "Simple and Nostalgic"
    Overall

    As a Westerner who is currently living across the Atlantic this book made me nostalgic for the West and for my family's (and many a Westerner's) past. Simple and country-eloquent in writing and masterfully narrated. A great listen and maybe even a better read. For anyone who enjoys Stegner, Steinbeck or any of the other great American West writers, you'll love this.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    From a widely listened listener, this was an excellent listen! I usually turn on a book to do the dishes or run but this had me stopping whatever task just to sit and listen.

    Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

    Terry says: "Sometimes it clicks"
    "adventuresome draw"
    Overall

    This was a great lite adventurous listen. It had plenty of twists and turns and was an enjoyable little adventure story. Best thing of all was that it was based around a girl sailor, what could be better?
