    The nation wept when news broke of nearly three-year-old Caylee Anthony's disappearance from her home in Florida in July 2007. The search for Caylee made front-page headlines. But Casey Anthony continued to lie to law enforcement about her daughter's whereabouts, complicating their search for the truth.

    Story

    This reader is horrendous! She is so montone that as soon as I started listening I thought I had accidentally changed a setting on the narration speed. I am very interested in hearing this book so I tried not to focus on the reader but it is impossible to not be distracted by her robotic way of reading. I wouldn't think it was possible to narrate a true story about the brutual killing of a toddler but somehow this unfeeling woman reads it with as much passion as I would read my grocery list. I can't believe someone hired her for this job!!

    Faith Madison has enjoyed the good life as the wife of a successful Manhattan investment banker and mother to two grown daughters. But every step of the way she has carried within her a secret she could divulge to no one. With unerring insight into the hearts of husbands and wives, lovers and families, Danielle Steel tells a moving story about the secrets that wound and the choices that heal.

    Story

    I agree with many of the other reviews... it drags and repeats the same thing over and over. I am a big DS fan and am used to her repetitive way of writing but this has me wanting to scream "I GET IT!" I like to multitask when listening so I don't mind her usually repetitive style but this story is especially slow and excessively redundant, even for Steel. I agree with the reviewer who said this would be an hour long recording if you removed all the redundancy. I am more than halfway through and barely anything has happened. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

    An odyssey of the heart begins the moment theater director Lucas Cameron discovers a box of letters written to his now-deceased grandmother by her protégé, Jessica Fontaine. Jessica disappeared from the stage years before, following a tragic accident. Through her letters, Lucas comes to fall in love with this passionate, talented woman.

    Story

    The reader does a fine job but I found the story to be slow paced and rather depressing. The characters are hard to relate to and the heroine is rather unlikeable. I wouldn't want to spend any time with her in real life. The detail of the theater gets more and more boring as the story drones on. I literally found myself falling asleep during large chunks of the book and really didn't care much. It is ok but nothing great and I was relieved when it was over.

    It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

    Story

    The details of the legal case were interesting and I appreciated the author's insight into the jury and why they might have decided the way they did. I was very sympathetic to the author.
