    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Where does Lean In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Thanks to Sheryl for bringing her experience to a reality that many women in today's society face. Among her contributions to the discussion is that women turn down opportunities because of future family possibilities. Years later when possibilities materialize, they find themselves unsatisfied and able to walk away from the workforce. As one who has nearly made this step, I find this to be extremely helpful.

  • Caleb's Crossing

    Story
    (395)

    In 1665, a young man from Martha's Vineyard became the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. Upon this slender factual scaffold, Brooks has created a luminous tale of love and faith, magic and adventure. The narrator of Caleb's Crossing is Bethia Mayfield, growing up in the tiny settlement of Great Harbor amid a small band of pioneers and Puritans. Restless and curious, she yearns after an education that is closed to her by her sex....

    Mary Sue says: "Another good entry into fiction!"
    "One of my favorite authors ever"

    Any additional comments?

    I love historical fiction, and Geraldine Brooks is among my favorite. Not only does she breathe life into a time in history, but there are always two themes in her stories that I find fascinating: the role of women and the role of religion in society. Well done!
