  • Tara Road

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Maeve Binchy
    • Narrated By Katherine Borowitz

    When two unhappy women switch homes for the summer, there are extraordinary consequences, and each learns that the other has a deep secret that can never be revealed. At the end of the summer, when the women at last meet face-to-face, they find that they have become, firmly and forever, good friends.

    Monica says: "Great Story - Terrible Recording"
    "the best"

    This is the best audiobook I've listened to all year. Though intimidated by its 18 hr length, I raced through it in just 2 weeks. I'll miss these characters like I miss old friends. Highly recommended. Another of Maeve Binchy's fine works.

  • Confessions of a Shopaholic

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Sophie Kinsella
    • Narrated By Emily Gray

    Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

    M. says: "shopaholic fun fun fun"

    two friends had recommended this series to me but it was very disappointing; inane and insulting, reminded me of "I don't know how they do it". A waste of time.

  • Broken for You

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 50 mins)
    • By Stephanie Kallos
    • Narrated By Anna Fields

    When we meet septuagenarian Margaret Hughes, she is living alone in a mansion in Seattle with only a massive collection of valuable antiques for company. Enter Wanda Schultz, a young woman with a broken heart who has come to Seattle to search for her wayward boyfriend. Both women are guarding dark secrets and have spent many years building up protective armor against the outside world.

    Barbara says: "Wonderful story of mending and redemption"

    I just loved this book--rich character development, a lengthy but well developed plot, and a satisfying ending where all the subplots came together. I was sad to finish it. Also, it was a very well read book, which added immensely to the experience. Highly recommended!

  • The Virgin Blue

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Tracy Chevalier
    • Narrated By Janine Carter, Gigi Marceau Clarke
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Meet Ella Turner and Isabelle du Moulin, two women born centuries apart, yet bound by a fateful family legacy. When Ella and her husband move to a small town in France, Ella hopes to brush up on her French, qualify to practice as a midwife, and start a family, but a peculiar dream of the color blue propels her on a quest to uncover her family's French ancestry.

    Beth says: "excellent listening, mediocre story"
    "excellent listening, mediocre story"

    The setting is France, and the listening was greatly enhanced by the beautiful French accents of the readers of this novel. However, this is a slow-moving story. I love historical fiction, and the older story was much more interesting than the contemporary one. I found myself slogging through those sections and not liking the character nor the reader's petulant-sounding voice. I was impatient for the end, despite interesting plot twists along the way. Chevalier's other novels are far better than this one.
