    The Piper family is steeped in secrets, lies, and unspoken truths. At the eye of the storm is one secret that threatens to shake their lives, even destroy them.

    What disappointed you about Fall On Your Knees?

    So much death. I listen while I commute to work, and by the time I get there, I feel depressed!


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't get though it... My attention was not grasped and I found myself mind wandering...

    Nothing is easy about life above the Artic Circle. Except, perhaps, falling in love. Bryson Faulkner embraces the challenges that come with making a home in one of the most beautiful but unforgiving places on earth: the isolation of the endless wilderness, the unpredictable climate, and the most perilous dangers of all----those that await her when she takes to the skies as one of Alaska’s most daring bush pilots.

    What did you love best about Breaking the Ice?

    My partner and I listened to this together and by the end we were day dreaming of becoming a rescue team, as I am a nurse and she was in the military, lol! It is a beautiful story...

  • Prairie Silence: A Memoir

    Story

    Melanie Hoffert longs for her rural North Dakota home with its grain trucks and empty main streets. But like many, she followed the out-migration pattern to a more urban life. When she returns home during harvest to confront the silences that have kept her at arm’s length from her childhood community, she finds it’s not easy. When asked if she's found a “fella,” rather than explain that she dates women, she stops breathing and changes the subject.

    Susie says: "An Expatriate from the Rural American Prairie"
    "Great performance, but terrible story."

    What would have made Prairie Silence better?

    Felt like we spent hours talking about the land... and religion. Not quite what I was looking for. Seemed to carry on and on... Didn't end up finishing it but listened to 3/4 before I stopped, waiting for it to get good...


    What aspect of Abby Craden’s performance would you have changed?

    Abby Craden is wonderful to listen to.
