    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    What did you like best about Defending Jacob? What did you like least?

    Started out as a good story. Kid being bullied. Bullier found dead in a park. All fingers point to the DA's kid, the one being bullied. Lots of trial in the story. Got a little boring during the trial part, which seemed to be long.


    What could William Landay have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Father in prison seemed to be thrown in to have a different angle to the story.


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    Love his voice. Very commanding


    Was Defending Jacob worth the listening time?

    Yes, because I did want to listen to what sounded like a good story.

    On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attention, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother - her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother - tastes of despair and desperation.
