Well, I think the icon chosen for me shows a young man... I am an old woman who likes to listen to books and hopes my ears last longer than my eyes.

    In the spring of 1918, the Spanish flu epidemic spreads, killing millions of soldiers and civilians across the globe. Overwhelmed by the constant flow of wounded soldiers coming from the French front, battlefield nurse Bess Crawford must now contend with hundreds of influenza patients as well. However, war and disease are not the only killers to strike. Bess discovers, concealed among the dead waiting for burial, the body of an officer who has been murdered.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I first 'discovered' him with the Ian Rutledge series and I keep hoping some more of
    the earlier books will be on audible.com. He has mayhem, of course, and the voice in his head, but Todd has a wonderful way with the English language


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Now I see what an awful critic I am since I have listened to other audible books
    since "An Marked Grave'!!


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in the Bess Crawford series. She is very, very good..


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

    Sorry.... I'm old... sniff...

    Consistently appearing on US and UK best-seller lists, C.J. Sansom’s Matthew Shardlake mysteries have earned considerable critical acclaim, including a CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger Award. At the behest of a former servant to Catherine Parr, Shardlake travels to Portsmouth to investigate claims of unspeakable crimes committed upon a young ward of the court. There, Shardlake uncovers disturbing evidence even as England’s continuing war with France rages around him.

    Marie says: "Shardlake has begun to annoy"
    "Shardlake scores again!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Heartstone to be better than the print version?

    I discovered C J Sansom by a referral from another author. What a treasure!
    Pathos, mystery in medieval England... no DNA!!.. and personal interaction.
    I hope that C J writes more!
    I think I am preparing to be unable to read (gasp!) so have all 5. I guess I must
    have enjoyed being read to as I do delight in this narrator as well.

    Where does A Rule against Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I delight in beautiful word play and Louise Penney is a
    master, I won't miss anymore of her books on A-audible.com


    What did you like best about this story?

    The many turns and twists that an older mystery
    reader didn't expect, AND how much Gamache
    loves his wife!!


    Which character – as performed by Ralph Cosham – was your favorite?

    Gamache


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have if I didn't need to take a wee dog out for the air.

    In the eighth installment of Alexander McCall Smith’s best-selling Isabel Dalhousie series, the inquisitive heroine helps a new friend discover the identity of her father. Jane, a visiting Australian philosopher on sabbatical in Edinburgh, has more questions than answers. Adopted at the age of six, she knows little about her father, other than he was a student in Edinburgh years ago. Always up for a challenge, Isabel is more than happy to help.

    "McCall Smith is a great voice of many!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Forgotten Affairs of Youth the most enjoyable?

    I like the reader's voice and, of course, following Isabel through another adventure which the darling father of her child wishes she wouldn't!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think the gentleness....


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Mercy! I should have listened again before answering this...


    If you could take any character from The Forgotten Affairs of Youth out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Isabel Dalhousie because she is such a kind soul who is really interested in the
    people in her world..
