    Named for a flower whose blood-red sap possesses the power both to heal and poison, Bloodroot is a stunning fiction debut about the legacies of magic and madness, faith and secrets, passion and loss that haunt one family across the generations, from the Great Depression to today. The novel is told in a kaleidoscope of seamlessly woven voices and centers around an incendiary romance that consumes everyone in its path.

    Martha Trupiano says: "Amazing story"
    "Bloodroot"
    Overall

    An interesting view of a community of people living a rudimentary live in the not-too-distant past.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"

    Overall

    A heartwarming story of life and prejudices in the deep south in the 1960's. Thank goodness, we've come a long way...

    Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world.

    Lawrence says: "Believe the Hype"
    "Freedom: A Novel"
    Overall

    A total bore! Franzen's character articulation is mediocre. The novel drags on and on and on. The story could be told in a lot fewer words. I listen to the book in my car and the narrator's voice is so dull I have to turn it off so as not to fall asleep. Too much hype over this book. I read it because of Oprah's ravings. Very disappointing.
