    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Any additional comments?

    For anyone wondering where the missing audio comes in it is before the attack on Pearl Harbour. Volotya is talking to Gregorie, I can't remember what about exactly, and all of a sudden it jumps to the middle of the Pearl Harbour attack. Hope that helps.

    Fans of inspirational fiction eagerly devour historical novels from Christy Award winner Lynn Austin. In All Things New, the acclaimed author weaves a tale set in the aftermath of the Civil War. Josephine Weatherly and her mother, Eugenia, return to their Virginia plantation, but their once-grand home has lost its lustre. Jo’s father and brother are dead, and the war has left her remaining brother broken and embittered. Bonding with Lizzie, one of the few remaining servants, Jo struggles to rebuild her life....

    I find that Lynn Austin consistently writes books that I enjoy reading/listening to. The stories are thoughful as well as historically significant and it's interesting to hear history told from different points of view. I have yet to be disappointed by any of Lynn Austin's books and am looking forward to the next one as I have gone through her entire collection.
