    RITA Award winner Robyn Carr is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. In this 19th installment of her Virgin River series, Tom Cavanaugh returns home to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. Single mom Nora Crane is nothing like the kind of woman he thought he’d fall for—yet he can’t take his eyes off her. And while they have different concepts about family, they soon find out how quickly those ideas can change.

    Would you listen to Sunrise Point again? Why?

    Yes, I have listened to every book in the VR series more than once.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bringing Nora and Tom back from minor mention in an earlier book and giving them character and substance. In both cases, the story was neither contrived nor a "fairy tale".


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ms. Plummer is an exceptionally talent performer. I have listened to books she has performed for other authors. Her projection of a character goes way beyond the voice she develops. She has been consistently outstanding.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent read.

    On a sunny day in July, Clare Prentice arrives in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Although she is on assignment to interview the town's notoriously reclusive novelist Nate Hanssen, Clare is really in search of a different story - her story. Just months before, Clare was a bride-to-be, living in Chicago and looking to the future - until the day she learned her entire life had been a lie. Not only was Clare adopted, but there is no record that she or her adoptive mother ever existed. The only clue is a class ring from Grand Rapids Senior High School.

    Would you try another book from Martha Powers and/or Becky Boyd?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Martha Powers again?

    Probably not.


    What didn’t you like about Becky Boyd’s performance?

    Amatuerish and monotone.


    Was Conspiracy of Silence worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I am impatient with filler material. I don't know if there is some minimum goal of words/pages for a novel, but this book had so many useless details, ie. she got out of the shower, grabbed a towel, looked in the mirror, dried herself, hung the towel on the rod, walked to the closet, etc., that I wanted to seriously edit the thing!
