    Story

    This is a story of a boy. I love stories, things that are told as though they were something that I listened to from my family, and this meets that criteria. This is a good, old fashioned story of a boy's life and growing up in America. It reminds me of Mark Twain in some aspects, as it does not dwell upon the down trodden side of life, but it does not eliminate it either.

    If you like simple, southern stories then you will truly enjoy The Water Seeker.

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    Diana Gabaldon is a gifted storyteller and Davina Porter may be one of the best readers that I have ever heard. This is the 5th book in a great series. If you enjoy any type of historical fiction it is a series that you must begin.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    I stumbled on Games of Thrones by happy accident. Prior to the HBO series I found George RR Martin while looking for a great storyteller with good long books. Others have told me that they do not enjoy his books because of the large number of characters. I think that the audiobooks resolve this issue for me. It is easier to identify with the large number of characters by listening to Roy Dotrice read.

    Story

    If you are a fan of Fannie Flagg you will enjoy this story, but it is just a bit dark. It is a "true to life" accounting of the relationships between family and friends. I think that it moves her storytelling from parenting years to the retirement and widow years.

    Fannie should always read her books. No one else can do them justice.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Ravaged by time and abandoned by the people who once flocked there in search of golden nuggets, Ragged-Ass Gulch is a ghost town. What’s left is a small, proud, and close pack of people who aren’t looking for change. But change seems to be afoot as several mysterious fires plague the town. That’s where the Nameless Detective comes in….
