    Loni Ann, Cynthia, Lauren, Cheryl, and Sara seemed to have it all - beauty, wealth, children, and a husband who they believed to be this perfect man - Brad Cunningham. He was handsome, charismatic, and mysterious. They adored him and tried to give him all he wanted. But he wanted everything: sex, money, and it seemed, their very lives. How long would it take before he finally got what he deserved?

    Would you listen to Dead by Sunset again? Why?

    Yes, this was a great book. It was engrossing, kept me wanting to hear more. It was such a tragic story that kept you needing to hear the outcome of the man accused of the atrocious murder.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot definitely kept me on the edge of my seat; the accused seems to be quite crafty in regards to getting away with everything.


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

    No, I have not but I look forward to such.

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Kitchen House to be better than the print version?

    It was a bit better to hear this story rather than read it. I had read it when it first came out and now a couple years later have heard it being read and the voices bring more life to the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Belle was my favorite character. It was interesting to me to try and understand how she was given the option of freedom even so early into the story yet she kept doing what she could to stay with her family as a slave. It showed alot about her and her love and beliefs.


    What about Orlagh Cassidy and Bahni Turpin ’s performance did you like?

    The depiction of their voices forthe characters was great. The way they read made the story come to life in a ay reading it yourself would not have done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book in itself told a story of love, beliefs and hope beyond reasoning. There was no one particular part better than the rest.
