    Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

    I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of the book. THen the bottom fell out and the last third was so depressing I wondered what was the author thinking? Surely she would know that few of us would pick up another of her books with such a horrible ending. IF I want to read horrible endings, I read the newspaper!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This is by far one of the best books ever. I laughed, I cried, I was full of remorse and gratitude for bringing this story forward. Never dragged, kept you captivated to the very end.

    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    Overall

    I stupidly didn't read the reviews before I purchased this audiobook. There were parts that were interesting but it was, bottom line, a horrible book. Learned something about dogs, if you can believe what was in this book, but it was undone. It dragged and then the author decided he had to get it finished so he end it. Just didn't do anything for me except want to write a review to tell others not to bother. Very disappointing and unsettling.
