    I think it's one of the better ones. It's more of a bunch of little stories so it's better if you are going to listen a little at a time.

    The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that 18-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nineteen Minutes to be better than the print version?

    IN/A


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how no one is considered bad or good. All of the characters are very real and I can related to them.


    What about Carol Monda’s performance did you like?

    It was easy to listen and ignore that it was an audio. Her voice wasn't distinctive or irritating. It flowed very well.


    Who was the most memorable character of Nineteen Minutes and why?

    Josie-I can relate to her relationship issues

    Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Emmitsboro, Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

    What did you love best about Divine Evil?

    I could not turn it off, Stayed up late to finish it. Great book, suspenseful.


    What does Kimberly Farr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator is good, I didn't really notice her which is a good sing. It means I could focus on the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely
