    The Waverleys have always been a curious family, endowed with peculiar gifts that make them outsiders even in their hometown of Bascom, North Carolina. Even their garden has a reputation, famous for its feisty apple tree that bears prophetic fruit, and its edible flowers, imbued with special powers.

    Generations of Waverleys tended this garden. Their history was in the soil. But so were their futures.

    Together again in the house they grew up in, the Waverley sisters realize they must deal with their common legacy - if they are ever to feel at home in Bascom - or with each other.

    "Magical"
    Overall

    I just loved it! The author is so beautifully descriptive and the narrator was just perfect. I loved the scents from the Waverley garden and kitchen. I could feel the magic of those scents and the colors that celebrated Claire's mood and passion. I can listen to it over and over. I originally bought the hardcover book, but couldn't pack it when I went on vacation because of airline weight restrictions. So I downloaded the audiobook to my MP3 player with the intention of giving away the hardcover book. Oh no! not anymore. This book is a keeper!

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    "EXCELLENT"
    Overall

    Wish I knew about this book when I was in my 20's! So glad I discovered this book now. This audio contains so many lessons and tools that I think anyone in any field or profession will find them helpful.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Wonderful epic story"
    "SO GOOD IT MADE ME DIZZY WITH EXCITEMENT!"
    Overall

    This was one of the best audio books of this genre that I have heard in a long time. It is so wonderful to have a great book AND great narrators. It was hard to turn it off and go to sleep when I first played it. At one point, I was so excited by the turn of events that I was almost dizzy. Ok, maybe that was because I didn't eat lunch after listening to the book 5hrs straight. Either way, you won't regret this choice.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "Touching and Funny!"
    Overall

    This book is hilarious from the start. As the story uncovers through the mind of this child, you feel the emotions that he cannot express. A great book!

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "THIS BOOK IS AMAZING"
    Overall

    THIS BOOK KEEPS YOU INTERESTED FROM BEGINNING TO END. THE NARRATOR IS EXCELLENT! I MISSED HIS VOICE WHEN THE BOOK WAS OVER. THIS BOOK ALONE IS THE REASON IS THE REASON I STARTED SUBSCRIBING TO AUDIBLE. DAN BROWN DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. YOU WON'T REGRET THIS CHOICE.
