    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Story

    I think often of Louie and his days portrayed for us by Laura Hillenbrand. Such a touching and lasting story. It shares hope that the human race can heal from horror and that God is never gone from us even when we are in the hands of evil. A story that has touched my life and the lives of ones I love.

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

  • Roots: The Saga of an American Family

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A masterpiece like none other, Brooks’ powerful performance of Haley’s words has been known to leave listeners in tears. It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

    Story

    I still remember the day back in 4th grade when our teacher showed us edited parts of the TV series based off this excellent book...now that I am past 30 I discovered the book that inspired that series and formed my views of how tragic our past that we allowed slavery to occur with no effective opposition! I have read about how some of the book and author are challenged and discredited and I don't care in the least about that nonsense. Even if that is true it makes no difference because this is a beautiful story that needed to be told. It could have been true of any number of families and it does us good to hear it!!!! Great book and good narration!

    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    Story

    Soar into a new world of honor and faith when you listen to the amazing story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer!!! This book challenges your ideas of right and wrong and makes you dwell on the lives of faithful, bold men and women from the past. His inspiring story will make you live every day with the question of "what if it's my last?" and will affirm your suspicions that wealth and title are not the only things worth living for..... Great work by Eric Metaxas and wonderful narration!

    Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale. This is the story of Shana, a half-breed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father with a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, Shana was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or human kind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.

    In this first volume of his memoirs, then-newly-qualified vet James Herriot arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, and he has no idea what to expect. How will he get on with his new boss? The local farmers? And what will the animals think? This program is filled with hilarious and touching tales of the unpredictable Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, and Herriot's first encounters with a beautiful girl named Helen.
