    When Elspeth Noblin dies of cancer, she leaves her London apartment to her twin nieces, Julia and Valentina. These two American girls never met their English aunt; they only knew that their mother, too, was a twin, and Elspeth her sister. Julia and Valentina are semi-normal American teenagers - with seemingly little interest in college, finding jobs, or anything outside their cozy home in the suburbs of Chicago, and with an abnormally intense attachment to one another.

    What a wonderful story, I just wanted to keep listening, it was like a magnet drawing me to it each day. The reader was excellent as she made each person come alive so you felt all the feelings the writer put into this novel.

    In her career as a photojournalist, free-spirited Jessie Ryder has seen the world through her camera lens. But she's never traveled far enough to escape a painful moment that has haunted her for the past 16 years: the day she gave her baby daughter away. Now, facing a life-altering crisis, she's decided to fix the broken pieces of her heart and seek out Lila, even if it means she has to upset the world of Lila's adoptive mother...her very own sister, Luz.

    In the fall of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

    Olivia's parents had been one of Hollywood's glittering golden couples...until the night the monster came. The monster who destroyed their beautiful home and took her mother away from her forever. The monster with the face of her father. Now a young woman, Olivia has a chance to confront her tragic past - and the longings of her own lonely heart. But before she can confront her past, she must safeguard her future.

    Susan says: "River's End"
    "This will be a Best Seller"
    Overall

    Wow! What a great story, wonderful characters, and a supurb narrator. This is the best Nora Roberts novel, and I listened and read many. I just know it will make the best seller's list at once and be there a long time. The book will hold your attention from begining to end with not being able to put it down and still not wanting it to end. I can't wait for her next book now.

    "Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen." (Linda Howard)

    Judy says: "Can I give 6 stars?"
    "Not so Good!"
    Overall

    Except for Faith and Gray there was very little character build up with the other subjects in this book. Also a lot of the things that happened in the book were unrealistic, like the swim under the dock. The love making was brutal and again unreal especially the public restroom episode.

    Everyone of Jodi Picoult's books are an amazing work with a lot of research and truth in them. I have truly enjoyed all of them, but this one is so well written, well spoken, and heartfelt. Don't miss it House Rules is outstanding. I could not put it down for very long, I will listen again and again.

    Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the mainstay of their lives. For 30 years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship: jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all, until a single act of betrayal tears them apart...and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.

    FanB14 says: "Beachy Fare"
    "Powerful!"
    Overall

    What a wonderful story, one that was hard to leave yet I did not want it to finish. Kristin Hannah is a writer that makes you feel a part of this wonderful book and feel part of Tully and Kate's life, while narrater Susan Ericksen helps you feel every feeling possible throughout the 30 year friendship of these two women and their families. Eighteen hours just wasn't enough I hope Kristin writes a follow up. This is a must read, I am so happy I found it on Audible.
