    It is the summer of 1976 in Oxfordshire, England, and someone is trying to kill Sally Gilmartin. The only person she can trust is her daughter, Ruth, a young single mother struggling with her own demons. Now Sally must tell her daughter the truth: She is actually Eva Delectorskaya, a Russian émigré recruited for the British Secret Service in 1939.

    Susianna says: "Favorite Book of 2007"
    "More by this author, please"
    Overall

    Please, Audible, let us have more books by this author. This superb story of British secret agent activity in the US during WWII was one of the best boooks I have read in years. Its gripping tale held my attention from cover to cover. It was finely constructed and brilliantly written.

    Story

    Best selling history writer Thomas Cahill continues his series on the roots of Western civilization with this volume about the contributions of ancient Greece to the development of contemporary culture. Tracing the origin of Greek culture in the migrations of armed Indo-European horsemen into Attica and the Peloponnesian peninsula, he follows their progress into the creation of the Greek city-states, the refinement of their machinery of war, and the flowering of intellectual and artistic culture.

    Mike says: "Really enjoyed this Audiobook; a good model"
    "Super super"
    Overall

    This is a really super summary of ancient Greek history. While thoroughly entertaining and educational, it allowed me to put into perspective all the scattered information I had gathered through a lifetime about classical Greece. Finally, I understood the mythology and the Greek writers and philosphers. All the bits of information I had never really understood came together and made enjoyable sense in Cahill's terrific book.
