    The New York Times best-selling author of The Girl Who Chased the Moon welcomes you to her newest locale: Walls of Water, North Carolina, where the secrets are thicker than the fog from the town’s famous waterfalls, and the stuff of superstition is just as real as you want it to be.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Addison Allen again?

    Maybe.
    I have enjoyed several novels by Sarah Addison Allen. The best so far has easily been The Sugar Queen. This book lacked a major conflict. It couldn't quite get it's feet under it in the drama department. All great stories need some sort of conflict. There were no stakes in this book. There was a great deal of character development, but all of the characters were comfortable. None of them risked anything major in the book at all. Plot wise this story was lacking.


    Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She seemed fine to me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Peach Keeper?

    Actually I would say that this book needed more scenes from the past in it. Had Allen developed the characters of Georgie and her friends in 1936 the book would have had more conflict and been a great deal more interesting.
    The tiny tidbits of magic suggested throughout the book were interesting and fun, there should have been more of those.

  • Waistcoats & Weaponry

    Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style - with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what - or who - they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train.

    A fantastic romp with a great thematic song at the end! I highly recommend this to any and all fans of Gail, steampunk and/or Bumbersnoot. Seven mechanical thumbs up!
