    New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

    Lisa says: "Wonderful Book, Very Emotional"
    "Intense, but not happy with the ending"
    Overall

    I liked the narrators, I enjoyed the book and the subject made me think a lot. What would I do? The twist at the end was unexpected and made me mad, more then anyting. Overly dramatic and hollywood-ish.

    In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto.

    Joel says: "Another excellent Connelly novel."
    "Supsenseful and intriguing"
    Overall

    A great thriller that maintains the suspense right up until the very end. And when you think you have it figured out, there are a few more turns. Great book!

    Story

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "Wondersful"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful book, a beautiful portrait of two people; one who wants to stay, and one who cannot leave. I found myself feeling their joy and pain, frustration and struggles. I tried to predict what's going to happen and was often wrong. In general, I think this novel could not be crafted more beautifully. I think this is the best depiction of devotion and love that I have read in a while.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Now old and ailing, she summons a biographer to tell the truth about her extraordinary life: Margaret Lea, a young woman for whom the secret of her own birth remains an ever-present pain.

    PA Law says: "Haunting and beautiful tale"
    "Enjoyed the timelessness"
    Overall

    What a remarkable listen. The Thirteenth Tale is well written and so hard to stop listening to. Complex and entrancing, the story stayed in the forefront of my mind at all times. I wouldn't stop if it wasn't for my needy family and work...... I couldn't tell what year or even decade is Margaret Lea writing the biography of Vida Winter. Not sure if I really need to know, as I truly enjoyed the timelessness of the story.

  • World Without End

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Kingsbridge alive again"
    Overall

    This book begins two centuries after The Pillars of the Earth; the most terrible European century with strife, dearth, pestilence, the Hundred Years War and the Black Death.

    Very entertaining and I found myself enthralled in the story, constantly thinking about Caris, who dreams of becoming a female physician in a world that will not approve. Great read. I hope I won't have to wait 18 years for the sequel...

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    CynNC says: "Captivating"
    "And the house was so clean...."
    Overall

    What a wonderful book and excellent narrator. I kept looking for things to do around the house, cleaning to be done, garage to be organized, so that I could listen to the Pillars of the Earth.
