    When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna's eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love.

    Would you try another book from Geraldine Brooks and/or Geraldine Brooks?

    I believe I would have loved this story if the reader had not been a nasal laconic reader. Although I finished the entire book, it was difficult because of the reader. I know it was read by the author so that is her portrayal of what she imagined the characters to be, but it prohibited me from fully appreciating the story. She is a talented author, but should have left the reading to someone else.

    Aza is far from beautiful. With pale skin and blood-red lips (not to mention ungainly size), she is seen as odd, at best. But Aza does have one blessing: a voice of astonishing beauty. In Ayortha, where singing is the main mode of communication, this gift is no small thing, and soon Aza finds herself rising at court. But, as she will discover, unexpected good fortune can also bring unexpected danger.

    Story

    This was a cute story but somewhat predictable. I am not sure it is one I would recommend listening to. It requires a lot of singing in different voices and it is not extremely enjoyable to listen to the singing.

    Falling in love is easy . . .. . . even for Kezi, though she knows her days are numbered. And head-over-heels, come-what-may love is inevitable if her heart's desire is Olus, the Akkan god of the winds. But accepting death is hard, especially when romance is new. Falling in love is easy for Olus if his beloved is Kezi, a beautiful mortal, a dancer and rug weaver from the city of Hyte. But facing Kezi's approaching death is unbearable....

    The hair-raising action continues for Michael Vey in this charged third installment of the #1 New York Times best-selling series. In the third book of the electrifying Michael Vey series, Michael and his friends must continue to fight the Elgen and try to disrupt their plans to rule the world.

    Story

    The author just seems to want to drag this book out forever. Although talented to a certain extent, this author does not have the enduring ability to make this a seven book series. I thought that a trilogy was adequate. I am constantly annoyed by all the flaws and open ends that of things that are not really possible. I don't mean all the "electric" things. I mean occurrences that happen and he doesn't think of all the loopholes in the story that make it unbelievable. However, my kids love it and so I am stuck reading another book with them. Ugh.

    Story

    I thought this was going to be a sweet story about someone finding out who she was and understanding herself better. I enjoyed most of the story until a character makes a request of her cousin that goes beyond loyalty and friendship. I felt like I was listening to a soap opera- which is not in my taste. If I would have known this, I would not have bought or listened to the book. However, I did enjoy the reader. She made me forget I was listening to a story. It seemed real.

    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.

    I really enjoyed the perspective into people's lives that this book provided. It made me see the world in a different light and try to understand the people around me more.
