    Story
    (2524)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Where does Wild rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to 3-4 audiobooks a month. Sometimes its the story that keeps you listening, sometimes its the narrator. In Wild, its both.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Listening to the author's trials and tribulations, makes me want to get out there and hike the PCT, blisters and all.


    What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

    Her emotion and pace matches the character's emotions and the overall pace of the story. Her narration made me cry when Lady died.

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....
