    Story
    (536)

    For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the celebrated aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong.

    Audrey says: "The Megalomaniac's Wife"
    "An absorbing story"

    What made the experience of listening to The Aviator's Wife the most enjoyable?

    I felt like I was getting a whole new perspective of the era and the people involved. I learned many facts about Lindberg and Anne that I was totally unaware from previous reading material.


    Which character – as performed by Lorna Raver – was your favorite?

    Anne


    Any additional comments?

    It was easy to understand her fear and dislike of the media.

    Told with the same old-fashioned narrative power as the novels of Herman Wouk, The Seamstress is the true story of Seren (Sara) Tuvel Bernstein and her survival during wartime. This powerful eyewitness account of survival, told with power and grace, will stay with listeners for years to come.

    Kathy says: "Seren Tuval, you are my hero!"
    "This was an amazing story of survival"

    What did you love best about The Seamstress?

    The story was told with all the horror of the situation and at the same time a feeling of hope. I felt like I was listening to the author telling me what happened over a cup of tea.


    What about Wanda McCaddon’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job with voices, there was never any confusion about who was talking.
