    What if... Lizzy, as she gets to know Darcy, finds him undeniably attractive and her impulses win out over her sense of propriety? What if... Madly in love and mutually on fire, their passion anticipates their wedding? In To Conquer Mr. Darcy, instead of avoiding Elizabeth after his ill-fated marriage proposal, Mr. Darcy follows her back to Hertfordshire to prove to her he is a changed man and worthy of her love. And little by little, Elizabeth begins to find the man she thought she despised, irresistible....

    Story

    This variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice would definitely make Miss Austen blush. It contains explicit sex whereas the original novel hardly alluded to the sexual natures of Elizabeth and Darcy. Elizabeth Klett's reading is superb; she has a perfect English accent and changes her tone of voice for the different characters. If Ms. Klett is blushing as she narrates the sex scenes, the listener will not detect it in her voice! Well-read. The author, Abigail Reynolds, has come up with an interesting and fun variation on the original Pride and Prejudice.

    From her hospital bed, 99-year-old Isobel Howard recalls her unexpected friendship with Cathryn, a childless, Chicago-born heiress who shunned her family, attended art school and married an Irishman with no pedigree. During the summer of 1936, the women find themselves alone in Cypress, MN, a mining town on the edge of a glacier-fed lake. Isobel is the wife of a tailor, mother of three young children and a milliner by training.

    Story

    Sarah Stonich provides a non-linear story of a woman's life. She weaves events forward and backward making for an interesting chronicle of Isobel Howard's life. Writing about love, loss, and commitment to friendship may not be considered exciting to some people but I loved this book and related to the main character through several events. The narrative kept my interest and there was even suspense near the end of the novel (no spoiler alerts will be given here!). Elizabeth Klett's skillful reading enhanced my experience of listening to Ms. Stonich's well-written book.

    It is 1850. Margaret Fuller - feminist, journalist, orator, and "the most famous woman in America" - is returning from Europe. She is bringing home with her an Italian husband and their two-year-old son. But this is not the gala return of a beloved American heroine. This is a furtive, impoverished return under a cloud of suspicion and controversy. When the ship founders in a hurricane, Fuller and her small family drown, and her friends send Henry David Thoreau to the wreck in hopes of recovering her last book manuscript.

    I've listened to many of Elizabeth's Klett's books on tape and she reads exceptionally well. Her reading of Miss Fuller was superb as usual. Miss Fuller is an interesting character and I felt very sympathetic towards her and not very charitable towards her contemporaries. I highly recommend this book.
