    Aminata Diallo is the beguiling heroine of Lawrence Hill's Someone Knows My Name. In it, Hill exquisitely imagines the tale of an 18th-century woman's life, spanning six decades and three continents. The fascinating story that Hill tells is a work of the soul and the imagination. Aminata is a character who will stir listeners, from her kidnapping from Africa through her journeys back and forth across the ocean.

    Ariela says: "Rich in history and moral messages"
    "Rearranging my schedule to listen!"
    Overall

    I've only finished the 1st section and I must postpone my appointments today - mesmerizing, insightful along with sadly real events of our past. A must read/listen for all.

    Two girls who grow up to become women...two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret.

    Gretta says: "Beautiful"
    "A bit too complicated for easy listening"
    Overall

    I must actually read this one - as it does sound interesting but a bit too foreign for easy listening - i'v started it over and again but do recommend for someone who can do nothing while listening - hope this helps.

    This one is so amazing that I literally force others to read/listen...A book for all to read to get a deeper understanding of a history we were not taught...Brava!

    Story
    (20)

    Racquel and Marcella are sisters with very little in common, except that each wants what the other has. Racquel has a beautiful house, a fulfilling career and a loving husband. But driven by her desperate longing for a child, she is alienating her husband and family. Marcella is a single mom, trying to support her two children with a low paying job, food stamps, and occasional child support from a deadbeat ex-husband. She won't allow anyone to interfere with her dream for a better lifestyle, not even her own children.

    Andra says: "A highly recommended reading!!"
    "Just like us..."
    Overall

    There were no extreme surprises and I found the characters to be just like everyone I already know. I was happy with the outcome of Kevin and Raquel. I wish something had been written more about the Administrator at the end on the big day. Otherwise, I enjoyed it and look forward to maybe a bit of a more 'out of the hood' storyline next time.
