    Stained glass artist Juno McKay is forced to confront the events that shattered the intense friendship between herself, her best friend, Christine, and her husband, Neil, when she discovers, after years of absence, that Christine is to deliver a lecture at their college reunion. Despite her misgivings, Juno finds herself compelled to attend the lecture about the history of one of Penrose College's most hallowed works of art.

    Story

    I was completely absorbed by the characters who struggled to create lives of purpose, creativity, responsibility and love. The moments of suspense and drama moved the mystery aspect along with several twists in the unfolding resolution.

    Stubbornness has landed private eye V.I. Warshawski in big trouble at her Chicago office. With her grand old Loop building set to be razed, she's become a hold-out tenant amid frayed wiring and scary, empty corridors. Then she finds a homeless woman with three kids in the basement, and before she can rescue them, they disappear. Worst of all, she's been implicated in a murder after the body of Deirdre Messenger, a prominent lawyer's wife, turns up sprawled across her desk.

    Story

    The story is another excellent Sara Paretsky VI Warshawski, with an interesting plot and characters, but the narration is very bland. It took two tries for me to get into listening, and although the narrator's voice is very pleasant, there is very little difference in tone or phrasing for any of the characters or based on the content. I like the political and social justice content of all of Sara Paretsky's books and this one carries a banner as well.

    In this entry from the popular series, five women meet at quilt camp and embark upon a project together. Over the next year, each woman must tackle a personal difficulty before adding her segment to their shared quilt. Despite the challenges they face, the women draw strength from their newfound sisterhood.

    Story

    This is one of my favorites, with the story of each of the five character' personal challenge, as a woman, a wife, and a mother. The challenges ring true, even while the optimism of the stories makes them "comfort" listening. Each of the women is likeable though far from perfect, and it truly feels good to hear them overcome the obstacles, face themselves and own their own responsibility to create their lives. Christina Moore is an excellent narrator, bringing each personality to life.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    I found this classified in the 8-11 year old suggestions. I listened to a few hours with my 9 year old grandson, and had to turn it off. It is very violent and disturbing.

    All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

    My 8 year old grandson and I listened to the entire series - twice! I like the values of friendship, diversity, leadership shared among the male and female characters, My grandson loves the action, and I enjoy the fun of the use of contemporary cultural icons in a whimsical way.
