    One ordinary winter afternoon on a snowy island, Anders and Cecilia take their sixyearold daughter Maja across the ice to visit the lighthouse in the middle of the frozen channel. While the couple explore the lighthouse, Maja disappears - either into thin air or under thin ice - leaving not even a footprint in the snow. Two years later, alone and more or less permanently drunk, Anders returns to the island to regroup. He slowly realizes that people are not telling him all they know....

    What would have made Harbor better?

    this is not a book to listen to if you have to divide your attention. The author jumps back a fourth between past tense and present. It was difficult for me to keep track when I was doing something as simple as driving. I never, EVER just sit and listen to a book so I had to keep rewinding to figure out what was going on!!


    What other book might you compare Harbor to and why?

    I wouldn't


    Have you listened to any of Julian Rhind-Tutt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first performance of Julian Rhind-Tutt I have heard


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Harbor?

    I would make the time jumps more easy to follow

  • Undead Sublet: A Free Story from 'The Undead in My Bed'

    Story
    (1417)

    In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man. Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

    What did you love best about Undead Sublet: A Free Story from 'The Undead in My Bed'?

    Molly Harper is an excellent story teller and her characters remind me of myself. This being her story was what mand the listen bearable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sophie Eastlake’s performances?

    No. Ms. Eastlake's performance was extremely stiff and pompous-sounding. Totally unsuited to Molly Harper's work. He manner seems more suited to the classics where everyone speacks like the have a corncob in an unmentionable place.
