    Returning to characters introduced in her previous novel, acclaimed author Joanna Catherine Scott explores the terrain of a devastated South, where the war is over - but conflict lives on. Having endured years of hardship, Eugenia Mae Spotswood returns to Wilmington to find out who her mother is, only to be met with racism and hatred.... Until she is befriended by the most powerful Negro leader in the state Senate. Also driven forward are the strong-minded ex-slave Tom and his crippled former enemy Clyde Bricket.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Child of the South to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the book, so don't know. I enjoy listening and can do that while driving, don't often get the chance to set and read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eugenia...she was the main character and easy to follow. A strong, opinionated, caring woman that many of us , including myself, would like to be.
    It gave a vivid insight to what the south was like in the days following slavery and how hard the black had to work to become free and have a voice!
    There were parts that were a few times I got lost in trying to follow what was going on...but for the most part, it kept my attention.


    What about Karen White???s performance did you like?

    She did and great job narrating.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, just thought provoking, wondering how I would have felt about the black during this time period and, would I have been that cruel??

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"
    "I love Ken Follet's novels, this is no exception."

    Would you listen to Fall of Giants again? Why?

    Ken Follett's' books keep me spell bound, another novel that, for me, was hard to stop listening to until the end.
    I love the time period of which he writes....my imagination soars!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole story.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    John Lee did an excellent job in his narration, making the characters come to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to seeing the movie.

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

    Betsy says: "Ditto - Don't waste your credit."

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

    A great mystery that keeps you guessing.
    Unlike many of Patterson's murder mystery, this one is lighter without the blood and gore.
    The end results were a mystery until the end....very well written.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Very well read, keeping your imagination alive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I'm not sure about the "Tag Line" but I would definitely go to see the movie.


    Any additional comments?

    A great mystery.

    Story
    (3713)

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    B.J. says: "Another terrific listen."
    "A Breath of Snow and Ashes"
    Overall

    The story was very hard to follow and the narrator extremely hard to listen to.
