    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Story

    Other than a history lesson, the story was quite predictable. The narration of the main character annoying and seems too mature. However, she did decent vocals with the others . If you are a Gabaldon "Outlander" fan, this is a poor comparison. Sorry, but I cannot give this story higher reviews.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale.

    Story

    What a wonderful gem of a book this was! A very unusual tale that captured my attention from the very beginning. This is one of those books that I found very thought-provoking after reading and I am still surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

  • The Book Thief

    Story
    (5719)

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Story

    Of all the books read over the course of 2011 (and there have been many), this is my top pick. Memorable, haunting, and enchanting. One of my new all-time favorites. Beautiful.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    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.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Very rarely does a book capture my attention from start to finish. A wonderful tale, beautifully written and narrated.

    Research scientist Dr. Marina Singh is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on an extremely valuable new drug. The last person who was sent to find her died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding answers to the questions about her friend's death, her company's future, and her own past.

    F. B. Herron says: "Do yourself a favor and listen to this book!"
    "State of Wonder as to why book is so highly rated."

    To be quite frank.... the story was borderline ridiculous and boring. So happy to have finally finished it.
