    Story
    (1205)

    Set over the course of one school year, in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits - smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love - and just how hard it pulled you under.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Eleanor & Park to be better than the print version?

    Tough question, as the book is so brilliant - after listening, I bought the print version, because I needed to own both.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The amazing attention to the details of Eleanor's & Park's interior lives.


    Have you listened to any of Rebecca Lowman and Sunil Malhotra ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes for Lowman, and this was stellar on her part - she was fully immersed in the character. Malhotra was new for me so I can't compare.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    About a billion of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I push this book on everyone, and they're all glad I do.

    Story
    (1126)

    Nicola Marter was born with a gift. When she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When a woman arrives with a small wooden carving at the gallery Nicola works at, she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird - the mythical creature from an old Russian fable. Compelled to know more, Nicola follows a young girl named Anna who leads her into the past on a quest through the glittering backdrops of the Jacobites and Russian courts, unearthing a tale of love, courage, and redemption.

    Sue says: "More heavy on the romance than the historical"
    "Captivating & sweet"
