    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    "wonderful story"
    Overall

    This story grabbed me from the beginning. Well researched,well written. I appreciated the depiction of the complexity of the lives of slaves at that time. This story allows for the inherent intelligence and wisdom of people who were not afforded the opportunity to become formally educated, as well as the conflicts within the white family members who were caught between the social mores and their true emotional reaction to the treatment of the slaves.
    The voices of both readers were delightful to listen to.

    Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.

    Lavonne says: "Delightful Entertainment"

    Overall

    Another one of those books that should just not end. John Keating's voice is perfect for this story. Loved every minute!

    Roseanne McNulty, once one of the most beautiful and beguiling girls in County Sligo, Ireland, is now an elderly patient at Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital. As her 100th year draws near, she decides to record the events of her life, hiding the manuscript beneath the floorboards. Dr. Grene, Roseanne's caretaker, takes a special interest in her case. In his research, he discovers a document written by a local priest that tells a very different story of Roseanne's life than what she recalls.

    Amanda says: "Haunting and Lovely"

    Overall

    I absolutely loved the telling of this tale. Wonderful story read beautifully. As with any really good book, I was sorry that it had to end.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "The reader's voice"
    Overall

    Very engaging story, but the reader's voice makes it all the more enjoyable! It's a long read, but not when you are listening.
