    Sue Monk Kidd's ravishing debut novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.

    Laura says: "It's hard to stop listening..."

    Would you listen to The Secret Life of Bees again? Why?

    I would listen again, yes, it is a great story that is set in the early 1960's, a sometimes scary and sad, yet simple time. Loved the sweet voice of the narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Life of Bees?

    Not to spoil the story, but the sister, May, touched my heart in her innocent love for others and their hardships, and how she ultimately responded to the grief and sadness.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Secret Life of Bees and why?

    Loved all the "Calendar Sisters". They knew the secret of "how to do life"...


    Any additional comments?

    This is such a lovely story, please don't miss this!!!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The characters are believable for the time period. The narrators have great character voices for both the male and female participants in this sad but true to life story. You will not want to stop the story....A great read!

  • The Last Wife of Henry VIII

    From the luxuries of court to the last gory years of the outsize King Henry, when heads rolled and England trembled, Catherine bestrode her destiny and survived to marry her true love. She was the least known of Henry VIII's six wives, but the cleverest of them all.

    Heidi says: "Fun historical fiction"
    "Great read!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Wife of Henry VIII the most enjoyable?

    The "behind the scenes" details and story-line. This book followed what I have known in history about these relationships very closely...some speculation of course, because it's fiction, but very closely ties to the history lessons...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The revealing of the "Saint Fraud"...I won't say more so as not to ruin it for you....


    If you could rename The Last Wife of Henry VIII, what would you call it?

    Catherine Parr, The Nurturing Queen
