  • The Story of Chicago May

    Award-winning memoirist and New York Times best-selling author Nuala O'Faolain branches into new territory with her biography of the infamous Irish-American prostitute and thief Chicago May. O'Faolain uses May's autobiography, primary sources from the turn of the 19th century, and her own experience as an Irishwoman to bring May and all her heartache, deception, and violence to life.

    Overall

    I didn't care for the way the story is told. The author retraces May's life and at the same time, tells how her research was done and compares May's life experiences to her own. I would have preferred May's story being told by May.

  • Her Daughter’s Dream

    In the compelling conclusion to the New York Times best-seller Her Mother’s Hope, Christy Award-winning author Francine Rivers explores the sorrow that can tear families apart and the grace that can heal the deepest wounds. Just as Carolyn had formed a stronger bond with her Oma Marta than with her mother, so Carolyn’s daughter is drawn to her grandma more than to a mom who’s caught up in the 1960s counterculture....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Reading part 1 of this series does make part 2 more enjoyable but don't have to read part 1, "Her Mother's Hope." I felt it had too much Christianity in it although that is what made the characters of this book, the author could have skirted around the religion. It is a bitter sweet story that completes the 2-art series.

    Internationally best-selling author Francine Rivers—winner of a Christy Award and the ECPA Gold Medallion—crafts a riveting tale of mother/daughter bonds stretching across decades. Strong-willed Marta leaves Switzerland early in the 20th century and settles in California. Though Marta loves her eldest daughter Hildie, they often clash as they attempt to find their places in the world.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Her Mother’s Hope to be better than the print version?

    Wonderful story of a women who, against all odds, leaves her family and makes it on her own in 3 different countries. It is a story of non-communication between mother and daughter but great love from both. It's a woman's book and I enjoyed it very much.

    "Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen." (Linda Howard)

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I was looking for a mystery with maybe a love story as a secondary plot. Was disappointed that the mystery was the secondary plot and the love story was the mail part.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made the affair between Gray and Faith the secondary plot and what happened to Guy the mail plot.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Nothing

    Dark secrets lurk beneath the glamour and glitter of New York's high-society life in this riveting tale of murder, obsession, and revenge. Jo Slater, one of the grandest of New York's grande dames, is knocked off her pedestal when her husband of 20 years dies under strange circumstances and leaves his fortune to a mysterious French countess. When Jo discovers she has been the victim of a plot, she decides to set things straight. And nothing is going to get in her way.

    Fabulous. Got hooked from the start and it only got better as I listened. It's one of those books you're sorry it ended and you continue to think about long after your done.
